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.
The Boss Dr Beat metronomes 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 Boss Dr Beat
metronome DB90 is a talking
metronome.. it will count out loud with a voice. The DB90 will also
count very complex rhythms, with all parts of the beat being
controllable. The Boss - DB60 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 Korg BeatLab
metronome is one of the most advanced metronomes available and has
many of the features of the Dr Beat metronomes.... each part of the beat
can be controlled through volume controls. There are many rhythm memory
settings, so you can pre-set all of the tempos and rhythms and quickly
select all of your memorized settings.39 preset rudiment patterns.
This model is a compact advanced rhythm trainer.
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 Matrix,
Seiko and the Wittner
Mt70 for great quartz models at a low price.

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

the Matrix Mr600, and Seiko
Sq70 . Need a very loud metronome -- for chorus, band,
orchestra, large groups... look at the MetroAmp

therapy, dog training, or golf swing... our most popular model is
