Simple, good looking metronome

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by semborg, Aug 30, 2005.

  1. Which should I get?

    I want:
    1# Simple.
    2# Good design.
    3# With built on speaker, (No need of headphones).
    4# Option for use headphones.
  2. The Boss TU-80 is both a metronome and a tuner. It works well IMHO. And only $30.

    Sabine makes some nice metronomes, but let me warn you about one design you want to avoid:


    I thought getting the MT-8000 would be a good idea because it has a built in tuner and other cool features, but it's no good. It only has a microphone, so you can't plug in your bass to tune up. Besides, scrolling to find a tempo takes forever.

    I use une of these:


    Sabine Zipbeat - less features than the MT-8000, but it does the one thing it's supposed to do well. Dialing in the tempo is a snap and it has all the other features you mentioned. It (and models like it) can be had for less than $20.
  4. Korg KDM-1, of course!
  5. I like this one, and it has a one ear headphone included, has a better click than some of these digital things(which beep, really awfull), not as good a click as an expensive swinging metronome(the old fashioned ones). also has a tuning tone on A 440 Hz.

    Also a light only function if you don't want to hear the click but see something
