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.
models 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
SQ50 The Sq 50 has a loud volume with the option of
two different tones & includes a battery. The best clip on metronome for music, golf,
exercise, dog training, therapy, running, etc is the
Dm50 Clip On. The Sq100-77 and Seiko Sq100-88
metronome are excellent intermediate to advanced
metronomes, incorporating more complex rhythm features and volume
control. The Dm 100 has many
features in a small package including accenting, sub division of

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.
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.
Digital Metronomes 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 increments.
Need a loud metronome... 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.
