by Denton from Santa Fe, NMThis is the best metronome I have ever owned. It's really great because I have a ton of rhythmic patterns at my disposable to practice with and I can pull sounds out and accent certain subdivisions of... read more [+] the beat. It doesn't have some of the ridiculous tempos I need to practice certain death metal and grindcore riffs, but it makes up for it with all the features it has. I would recommend this product for any guitarist who wants to practice till his head explodes and then he has to pick the pieces back up and glue it back together by hand and then practice some more. This thing will profoundly improve the way you play!!! close [-]

The only complaint I have is that they send a battery and you need to buy the charger if you want to. If I would have known that upfront, I would have ordered it as well. It is not clear when buying on line. close [-]
Very Good Metronome
by Bryan from Shreveport, LAThis metronome has been a great tool in getting our Praise and Worship team tighter. The human voice count will not let you cheat and move the "1" the other sounds are useful also. The programability ... read more [+]is great, you can input the tempo, time signature and even the sub-divisions you want for each song then recall them. Our drummer controls it, but we run it through the Avioms so anyone can bring it up in their ears, very helpful in learning punches or having everybody come in on beat. This is our second DB-90 and is going to our Youth building to help train their band. Our first is 6+ years old and doing fine. It has a lot of features and requires some effort to learn how to utilize them all, but it's well with the time to do so. close [-]

This a great unit!

I will say that the manual is terrible. For a unit that has so many capabilities, the Owner's Manual is sadly lacking. There is nothing in it to help someone learn how to use all the different elements of the unit. From my perspective this is inexcusable. Many less complex units have much more complete manuals. close [-]
