    Metronome Help

    Not sure which model  you need? There are many models  to pick from and it depends what you are using the metronome for. If you need a metronome for music purposes, any model  will work well, but there are some with more features than others. Below are a few tips to help you choose a model. 

    Franz are the only metronomes made in the USA. They carry a one year warranty and repairs are available after one year. The Franz Xb700 is a very loud metronome, with accenting and half time/double time. The Franz Xb750 metronome/ tuner is identical to the Xb700 except that it has a switch to generate pitches. 

    The Dr Beat are the most advanced models, having features not found in other metronome models.. These models are excellent teaching tools for learning simple or complex rhythms. All Dr Beat models are digital metronomes. The DB 88  is a talking metronome.. it will count out loud with a voice. The DB88 will also count very complex rhythms, with all parts of the beat being controllable. The DB60 has most of the same features as the DB 88, with out the voice and a few other features. All Dr. Beat metronomes come with a manual with full instructions.
    The keywound metronomes with a swinging pendulum let you see the motion of the beat. The bell models will also accent the first beat with a bell sound. The keywound models give the most natural sound of all the metronomes and are very pleasing to the ear. The Taktell Mini is a great metronome for portability, but the sound is louder on the Taktell Piccolo or Standard Models. Using the keywound models is simple and with winding the key about 8 -12 times the sound should last from 20 to 30 minutes. The plastic standard models are identical to the standard wood model... except for the case which is wood. The wood is made from a composite wood and then finished with walnut, mahogany, or black finishes. 

   Quartz and keywound models  are a little easier to use than digital models, as you can dial the tempo quickly with a quartz model  - a digital model  requires pressing a button till you get to the tempo. -  Look at MatrixSeiko and the Wittner Mt70  for great quartz models at a low price.

    Digital Metronomes have many features and will increment the the tempo by one beat at a time. With a digital metronome you can obtan  the tempos 60,61,63,64... etc. Quartz and keywound models use musical tempos to determine the increments.  
      Need a loud metronome... the loudest are the Franz XB700 (made in USA), Matrix  Mr600,  and Seiko Sq70 are our loudest.  Need a very loud metronome -- for chorus, band, orchestra, large groups... look at the MetroAmp packages.  
        For exercise, physical therapy, dog training, or golf swing... our most popular model  is the Seiko DM50 Clip On.
