What's the best metronome for <$50?

    I need a new metronome. (Actually I need a better sense of rhythm, but since I can't buy that I figure the 'nome is the next best thing.) I'd like it to not just count off beats but also subdivide in triplets, quadruplets, etc. and I'd like to pay no more than $50 for it. I have checked out the Korg MA-30 and that seems to fit the bill, but are there other considerations or models out there I should think about? Thanks.

    Depending on how/where you want to use it, you could also consider a used drum machine. I find it is much more fun to practice to drum loops than to a metronome, and you can program any rhythm or style. Should be possible to find something used for $50. Needs some amplification though.

    Just an idea.
