    I've decided its time to invest money into a metronome to refine my timing and rhythm during practice. Seems like a lot of manufacturers have strayed away from the weighted pendulum Wittner style.

    I'm probably going to go with a Seiko model unless someone can convince me otherwise. Want to spend $30 max, some sort of visual cue, have a memory bank, and an earphone jack. Would be nice to have some sort of tap function to tap out a beat of a song as well...

    And yes I know their are "free" metronomes online but I want something that I can carry with me and such.

    I really like my boss metronome. It's the $35 one. It's small and has a lot of function

    I have a free metronome on my iphone. But they also have tuners that are around 10 bucks with metronomes built in.

    I use MobileMetronome on my phone. It was free and gets the job done just fine.

    I have an iPhone and have metronome app but never use it. I just like having it separate

    This... I don't have a problem spending a bit of money on having something that will probably last me forever. Also how loud does the "metronome app" get over practice volumes?

    What about just a small/budget drum machine with effects? Alot more fun IMO.
     
  8. Another one here who has a metronome on my iPod. I also have a metronome built into to my Korg tuner. I find they are about equal volume, and much easier to use than the old pendulum ones we used to practice piano to as kids.

    If you wanted to go the drum route, Hydrogen is a free drum machine for Linux and Windows, and of course Mac has GarageBand.
