Matrix metronome help

Not sure which model  you need? There are many models  to pick from and it depends what you are using the metronome for. If you need a metronome for music purposes, any model  will work well, but there are some with more features than others. Below are a few tips to help you choose a model. 

       Matrix manufactures a very dependable metronome at a good price. The Mr 500 is one of the best buys as it has a loud click and is very simple to operate, includes a led light & an earphone. The Mr 600 metronome  is one of the loudest models with a volume control, 6 lights that swing like a pendulum, beat accenting, and great tuning features- includes earphone. The  Mr 550  is a digital metronome with an lcd display. This model also has  loud volume and is our least expensive metronome with volume control, accenting features, tone generation, and includes an earphone. 
    The keywound metronomes with a swinging pendulum let you see the motion of the beat. The bell models will also accent the first beat with a bell sound. The keywound models give the most natural sound of all the metronomes and are very pleasing to the ear. The Taktell Mini is a great metronome for portability, but the sound is louder on the Taktell Piccolo or Standard Models. Using the keywound models is simple and with winding the key about 8 -12 times the sound should last from 20 to 30 minutes. The plastic standard models are identical to the standard wood model... except for the case which is wood. The wood is made from a composite wood and then finished with walnut, mahogany, or black finishes. 

  Back To Metronomes

 Quartz and keywound models  are a little easier to use than digital models, as you can dial the tempo quickly with a quartz model  - a digital model  requires pressing a button till you get to the tempo. -  Look at MatrixSeiko and the Wittner Mt70  for great quartz models at a low price.

    Digital Metronomes have many features and will increment the the tempo by one beat at a time. With a digital metronome you can obtan  the tempos 60,61,63,64... etc. Quartz and keywound models use musical tempos to determine the increments.  

  Seiko Metronomes are probably one of the oldest manufacturers of quartz metronomes. Their quality is very high and hold up very well. A very good beginner to intermediate metronome is the Seiko SQ50v  The Sq 50 has a loud volume with the option of two different tones. The Seiko SQ 50v Metronome comes with battery and earphone. The best clip on metronome for music, golf, exercise, dog training, therapy, running, etc is the Seiko Dm50 - clip on. The Sq100-77 and Sq 100-88  are no longer available... the closest model to this model is the Wittner MT70  offering advanced sub divisions of the beat.  
      Need a loud metronome... the loudest are the Wittner Mt70 , Matrix  Mr600,  and Seiko Sq70 are our loudest.  Need a very loud metronome -- for chorus, band, orchestra, large groups... look at the MetroAmp packages.  
        For exercise, physical therapy, dog training, or golf swing... our most popular model  is the Seiko DM50 Clip On.
