Boss DB-30

Dr. Beat MetronomeIt’s portable, reliable, and fun to use — the DB-30 helps musicians take their music to higher levels by offering a set of features that defies its diminutive size. Much more than just a simple timekeeper, this pocket-sized metronome can lay down a variety of rhythm patterns and time feels to practice along with, and it has a few timekeeping tricks up its sleeve as well.

Pick from a menu of nine rhythm types and 24 beat variations, including combinations of odd-time signatures and clave patterns for practicing Latin rhythms. Who says practice has to be painful? Put some extra spice and groove into your next practice session with the DB-30!

The DB-30 adds value with its smooth-flowing LCD needle for visual tempo assistance, and two bright LED lights that visually assist your practice. Other helpful functions include Tap Tempo for finding the right pulse fast, internal reference tones (12 semitones), Auto Power Off for optimizing battery life, and headphones jack so you won’t miss a beat, even in noisy environments.

Too fiddley and Graphics too Small!
16.01.2015
This metronome was found outdated in display by the colourful Snark turner, the graphics and text are too small to see with any clarity due to dark blue on dark green background and any reflections that are caught on the glass panel.

We also found the settings confusing despite reading the instructions and time is wasted getting the metronome to work as wanted. It would have been useful to have a back light or at least something for clarity.

There is a headphone socket so that the beat can be heard along with an indication light if needed but overall we gave up and deemed there must be a better product on the market. Useful size that can be clipped to a belt but concluded it's return.

Feels plasticky not quality, the sort of product that could possibly be found as a generic product with several different brand names stuck on it. We will look for something more substantial.

It sounds like the late 70's ping pong game!

Perfect app alternative
George XT, 28.02.2019
Excellent standalone metronome, considering the price. Does what it is supposed to do very easily, with no weird button combinations. It's compact and lightweight so you can keep it in a stickbag or a guitar case at all times.

For drummers, the headphone output is loud enough for playing along and the tone generator is actually pretty useful if you 're tuning your drums to a specific pitch. When muted, 2 red LEDs on top keep counting the meters which is handy in certain situations. For some players, the 250 bpm ceiling might be annoying if you 're trying to practice certain patterns but the beat variations and note values are really enough for most people, clave patterns are a nice addition too.

My only gripe is that the metronome has to stop in order to use the tap tempo function but it's really not a deal breaker.
