    This is the best metronome I have ever owned. I havde been playing by 'ear' and have decided to learn to play by sheet music. The voice count in is great (for me) .When turned off all saved programs are lost, which is the only down side I see. I really like this machine. If it were to break I would order another immediatly. I dont think it will break however,(knock on wood) I have a 15 year old boss DB66 which is still going

    If you want the best, I believe this is it.

    Unblievable product!!!

    This 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 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!!!

    While this device is a bit spendy it does everything I need and more. The accuracy, fuctionality and ease of use is remarkable. If you are looking for a cadillac of metronomes that can help improve your playing, this is it. Outstanding in every way!!
    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.

    A Click in Time

    Picked this up for our church worship team. We mix it into our IEMs. All the drummers use it flawlessly. It's a metronome, so it's not that complicated, but it is absolute cake to use. It does everything we want it to do - plus it mounts with drum hardware - although it would be nice for Boss/Roland to come up with a 90 degree mount so it's easier to fit into a drum kit.

    Very Good Metronome

    This 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 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.

    Just What I Needed

    I was looking for something more than a mechanic metronome like to good old days to something that was less than a drum machine and the Boss DB-90 really nails it. The way to good bass playing is to always have good rhythm and make it solid and reliable. If you have been away from your playing for some time like I have then this is the perfect device to get you back into the groove again. Good Choice for me.

    The Dr. is IN (sorry)

    Great for teaching beginning to intermediate time for my drum students.
    Subdivisions could be split up a little more, but it does the job well.
    Inputs are great.

    This a great unit!

    This is a remarkable unit. Though I'm only using a couple of features (mainly the "boom/chick" pattern; making it a very expensive metronome) it makes practicing with this unit fun and, thus, will hopefully contribute to my growth as a musician.
    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.
