I was looking for a classic style wittner metronome on the internet. when it took me to the thomann page. Were I saw the 817A maple.I was looking for a darker colour. But I like the look of this one. I order this metronome it arrived within 4 days. It was very well packaged. And you can track it all the way. The metronome did not disappoint. It looks good the sound of the tick & bell are nice and clear. I'v ordered thing in the uk that have take 3 times as long to arrive. Very happy customer. thumbs up thomann great service.
