Good metronome, also for drummers
Anonymous 31.01.2015
I wanted a metronome that was precise, had a sound that would not annoy me, had some settings for its volume and a headphone output.

Differently from the Korg metronome I had before, when you press up or down on the tempo, this starts to quickly change immediately, and not in increments of 20 but increments of one. Very quick to set the tempo. Even better, there is a very responsive tap tempo function.
Also has lots of other features that you would not expect seeing how little buttons it has, it is actually quick to set up and good for practice on any instrument.

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This metronome was found outdated in display by the colourful Snark turner, the graphics and text are too small to see with any clarity due to dark blue on dark green background and any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

Boss DB - 30
Paullimerick 28.08.2013
Nice and small, comes with battery fitted. Ready to use from box. Can be used as a metronome and for giving pitch. Useful for choir conductors. You can tap in pulse manually and it will give you a metronome value. Headphones can be plugged into the metronome if you dont want others to hear, visually lights and a digital pendelum help to illustrate the pulse if on silent. If you have a coin you can place this into the slot at the back of the db-30 and this will allow it to stand upright.

Does everything you want it to
Jellyfish 12.09.2013
I am a drummer by trade, but also a bassist, and was happy with using phone and iPad apps to use as metronomes. I also felt that they all lacked in particular areas and there wasn't exactly one good one that did everything. Also, running these apps drains battery and using your phone or even tablet with headphones can be cumbersome, especially when its purpose is only to be used as a metronome.

The Boss DB-30 solved all my problems straight away - it's extremely light, has a headphone socket, has a pleasant sounding click, has multiple timings and a large tempo range. One of the great things about this (as a drummer) is the pitch function that allows me to have a base pitch when tuning drum heads.

Other than that, the built in speaker is great when I'm practicing bass, although you can't hear it at full volume against a snare drum. It perhaps seems expensive for a digital metronome, but it's the only one you'll ever need.

Warning, this metronome is not able to tune the standard 415 Hz.

The blinking light is a neat feature , but as expected, this metronome is much too quiet. The search for louder one continues....

Had it for over ten years
ChrisDowning 13.03.2019
The one and only metronome I've kept from my full time teaching job. Pretty much does everything I want. But you cant set every full bar rhythm you can think up. Just visit the Boss website to read off all the presets. But hey - you want to do that - buy a drum machine ( my rec. Alesis SR16 - oldie but goodie.)

Très bon métronome
Antoine778 01.03.2016
Bonjour

Le DB-30 est très complet et compact.
Très facilement transportable dans votre poche.
Semble assez solide, bonne fabrication.

Il possède une attache pour ceinture mais malheureusement pas de pied, il vous faudra placer un médiator dans l'encoche prévue pour qu'il puisse tenir debout.

Il a toutes les fonctionnalités d'un bon métronome :
- un volume sonore acceptable
- Plusieurs Rythmes / Battements possible.
- bouton Tap/Mute pour tapper le tempo
- Note / Pitch
- Tempo Value + et -
- Sortie Casque / Out

Et ce qui m'intéressait énormément c'est qu'il possède le battement Swing Feel

Merci

Very easy and intuitive to operate
NicolaBH 22.04.2020
the menu is very uncomplicated and personally, i did not need the manual to figure out its functions.
gives you a beep through a small internal speaker (volume adjustable) or via headphones. you can also have it play a note to use as tuning aid.
