Perfect Choice for the Active Metal Musician May 02, 2009
By B. Ben
I was just reading the reviews of the product because I want to get another one for a friend, and there was a bad review from the kid's mother, that kid was learning to play violin. I guess I didn't work for them because he's just a kid and not a musician, (probably he didn't know how to use it and he broke it) I'm a music student and I use it EVERY DAY over and over, and nothing had happened to it for the 8 months that I've been using it. I tried other known brands as korg, boose a I couldn't find the options that this little device can offer. this thing was made for combat.

Very useful for musicians Oct 29, 2012
Very easy to use the metronome in a variety of ways. The tuner works for all instruments! For beginners to pros and the batteries last a long time.

One of the best deals I ever purchased! Sep 27, 2012
I know this sounds like a sales pitch but It is a truly honest review. This maybe a little complicated when you first try it out, but this was worth more than the money I paid for it! I read reviews before i bought this item and was afraid of it not being durable, since i tend to drop things a lot and you need things to last as a college student, let alone a music major. It has fallen off my music stand while I was trying out the tuner and pickup often and there is not even a scratch and the metronome hasn't lost a beat! you can even adjust the tuner to the exact htz you need it tuned to. As for the metronome, it six different ways to count the beat, it shows the accented beat, does seven different time signatures, displays the beats for minute, and even shows these terms you can set it to: Largo Adagio Larghetto, Andante, Moderato, Allegro, Presto, and Prestissimo. This bundle is a must have for ANY musician that has a little trouble kepting the beat or staying in tune.

Not very durable Feb 04, 2009
By Philly Mom
We purchased this item when our children began to study violin. It seemed convenient to have a device that combined the tuner function and the metronome function. Initially, the tuner and metronome functions performed as described; however, very shortly after we started using the device, it began to exhibit a variety of problems. In particular, it would refuse to go on, or when turned on, its display was populated with nonsense (basically, all of the LCD elements were on at once), and you could not put it into either tuner or metronome mode. Inserting fresh batteries might revive it for a few days, but then it would start to fail again. It has only been perhaps six months, and the device now fails to work entirely. Would recommend trying a different brand.
Too quiet Feb 05, 2013
By M. Hellen
Maybe I just got a duff one, but mine is far too quiet. It has lots of very useful functions, and tuning to it is fine because you don't have to hear the note, but when I'm getting the speeds of pieces for my pupils to play at we can hardly hear the beats and have to do it visually. It is also useless for trying to play along with the beat as it cannot be heard enough. Has anyone else found this, or have I just been unlucky? I've ordered a Korg and am hoping for more volume!
