Nice, gets the job done...good for Blues music too... Jan 03, 2010
By Guitar Player
Because this met goes down to 30 beats per minute,
it is one of the few available that can be used
with slow Blues music.
The size is that of a pack of cigarettes,
but only about 1/4-inch thick or less. Nice & small.
It will probably fit in any musical intrument case.
The sound is a lower beep, not a click or tic.
The sound is not objectional at all. It gets
the job done well... with enough room volume
to be useable in fact. It also has a earphone jack.
No ear bud or earphone came with it however.
The speaker may be programmed off.
Or, at volume levels of low/med/high. 4-levels.
It is to advantage that it has a programmable
Analog physical mechanical 'spin the wheel'
type controls are usually built cheap an do wear
out quickly and do not last. They also get dirty and
make scratchy sounds over time as well.
So, this one has an ideal volume control !
IF you turn off the volume control... there
will be Zero audio speaker output...
however... a RED LED will fire-off to
keep the beat time. It has ample brightness
to be seen EZ in daytime roomlight (which is bright).
The RED LED is always firing-off to the beat
when the device is used, regardless of
It has NO mechanical switches or mechanical
volume control to break or wear out.
I like it, and the price is right for the
longterm quality of the device.
The battery is a single lithium CR type...
which is very EZ to replace. It is
suggested the battery may last through
200-hours of device useage.
It has a flip-down stand on the rear of
its case. Works well and doubtful it will
break. Made nicely.
The LCD Display is ample to be seen and read
when the device is on a music stand.
It displays a moving body with the beat and
settings of the device.
I enjoy mine.
It does not come with any kind of
slip-cover for a protective case.

If you need a met, this is the one Jun 18, 2009
I am a music education major studying oboe, and I have been using this metronome for almost 2 years and haven't had a problem at all. All the controls are simple, straight forward and work wonderfully. The only downside is that you need an adapter to use headphones which is a bummer, but that's not a necessity anyway. It stands up, is incredibly durable (falls off of my stand all the time, hardly a mark on it) and the batteries refuse to die. It has several rhythm settings, which are fantastic. I highly recommend this item to anyone who needs a metronome.

Piano Teacher's Favorite Jan 27, 2009
I am a piano teacher. This is my favorite metronome. It's small but mighty, with volume control and several rhythms including eighth and sixteenth notes, triplets, etc. I have a second one which is kept at the church where I am organist. Several students have gotten the same metronome following my demonstration/recommendation of it. Also, the price is right! This metronome is more
versatile than many more expensive ones.

Great for the price Apr 29, 2010
This metronome is loud and works great, my only compliant is the headphone jack is very small and I have had difficulty finding headphones that work in it.

Small, but user interface is difficult Oct 03, 2012
By Bruce Huber
This metronome is very small -- slightly larger than a credit card, and just a quarter inch thick or so. This makes it handy for use on the road, but there are tradeoffs. First, the maximum volume is not all that loud. Second, because of the size, there are only four buttons on the unit, and the user interface thus has to do the rest: if you want to adjust the volume, for example, there is no simple "volume" knob or button. You have to use the "select" button and cycle through the various options, and then decrease/increase volume.
For regular home use, then, this is not the ideal unit, in my estimation. I'd prefer something that is more quickly/easily adjustable, and louder.
