It works as it should

I use this for practicing guitar.

The metronome is no fuss and could not be easier to use, dial the tempo you desire, turn it on and select one of the two sounds (quartz) and set the volume.. In addition to the sound there is a flashing diode on the metronome as well.

Sounds is very loud and clear and I find it hard to believe anyone would ever need to turn it all the way up.... it gets loud..

The dial for the tempo has the classical definitions as well as the actual bpm.

Casing is hard plastic but the weakest part think would be the fold out wire-stand that I think would break before the plastic.

Batteri is 9volt and I would assume it will last for a very long time.

My only problem is that the actual BPM is written is very small letters so you need really good eyes to see which tempo you are at and I think it would have been possible to have made a small magnifying dot in the dial to help you see the tempo better.

I think this will last a lifetime and is super easy to use with no bells and whistles (it's a metronome)

Should it break I would look for one with a easier to read dial/display otherwise it got the features I need.

Just works.

Very simple and effective tool. Highly recommend.

Be careful with the line out signal, because it's quite loud. I recommend setting it to zero, and then turning it up to a comfortable volume.

Indispensable tool for every practicing musician !
RookeyDookey 16.09.2014
This little black unit is really important because it helps you to keep in time and develop a feel for the beat !

The dial is divided in steps of 4bpm which is a very good choice because it prevents the display to be too cluttered (1 bpm isn't really that noticable when practicing).
I remember this well from my time when i studied classical music and piano, the mechanic metronome i used was identical in this case.

It starts at 40 and goes up to 208, a range that is broad enough for most music styles.

Acoustically the "beep" sound (there are two at choice here) is rather pleasant, due to the metronome using a Quartz instead of generating it the digital way.
I avoid the latter exactly because of the harsh bleep sounds these make, it gets on your nerves when practicing some hours.

You even get a visible sign on top of the metronome, a good help when practicing silent (for example without sound or with headphones !)

I recommend this unit to everyone who is playing an instrument, whether novice or pro.

Simple to use, cheap and rugged

You can set this sooo easily at the twist of a dial to the tempo you want. Has a headphone socket, volume and high or low pitch click. Could be a little louder.
