    Not sure which model  you need? 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. 

    The Dr Beat Metranomes are the most advanced models, having features not found in other metronome models.. These models are excellent teaching tools for learning simple or complex rhythms. All Dr Beat models are digital metronomes. The Dr Beat DB 90  metronome  is a talking metronome.. it will count out loud with a voice. The Dr Beat DB88 metronome  will also count very complex rhythms, with all parts of the beat being controllable. The Doctor Beat  db60  metronome has most of the same features as the DB 90, with out the voice and a few other features. All Dr. Beat metronomes come with a manual with full instructions.
    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. 

   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 obtain  the tempos 60,61,63,64... etc. Quartz and keywound models use musical tempos to determine the increments.  
      Need a loud metronome... the loudest are the Franz XB700 (made in USA), Matrix  Mr600,  and Seiko Sq70 are our loudest.  For very loud metronomes. look at the MetroAmp packages.  
        For exercise, physical therapy, dog training, or golf swing... our most popular model  is the Seiko DM50 Clip On. 
     Confused, or not sure which metronome you need - call (800)586-3876 and we will help you.
