Essential Tool for Every Drummer

If you're a drummer, Tama's RW200 Rhythm Watch metronome is just for you! Every drummer at Sweetwater knows timing is everything whether you're just starting out or you've been playing for years. The RW200 is versatile, programmable, and customizable, so it's great for your solo practice, band rehearsals, and gigs - when the pressure kicks up in the studio or at the show, your nerves won't make the tempo creep up. With Tama's RW200 Rhythm Watch you know you're playing exactly what you're supposed to be, and you'll never miss a beat.

Tama packs every must-have tool you need into the RW200 and gives you the control you need to customize your beat-keeping. It's great for practicing your chops when you're on your own - and also for making sure you're jamming at the right tempo on all of your band's tracks. Store your favorite grooves into memory - the RW200 lets you store 30 different tempo/beats into memory for instant set recall, so you can get right into the groove. To avoid that stale, always-the-same metronome sound, you can also use separate volume controls to customize the way you hear the beat divisions. The start/tap button is easy to reach, even when the RW200 is mounted on your kit. The large, easy-to-see fly wheel lets you make fast tempo adjustments and scroll through your settings and the big and brightly backlit LCD display helps you keep an eye on it all!

The Tama Rythum watch is the perfect tool for all drummers and bands to keep the beat on time and everyone happy. I should have gotten one a few years ago...what a tool for for keeping everyone in time.

Amazing Metronome!

Seriously, only Tama could top the greatest metronome out there, with The new Rhythm Watch. Outstanding and perfect for the professional drummer. And Sweetwater, as always, was fast, reliable, and reasonably priced.

Here's the skinny... Tama Rhythm Watch RW200 and Rhythm Watch Holder RWH 10(Mounting Bracket) First I'd like to touch on the obvious...MASSIVE...Improvements for the drummer. The NEW improved mounting bracket (Rhythm Watch Holder RWH 10) for the unit is fantastic, and well thought out. Simple in design, but well thought out. The RWH 10 is far superior to the method of mounting previously. With the change in the mounting, the support of the unit is no longer a concern. I had created a specially modified mount and adapter for my RW 100 and it still seemed like unit was hanging out in the wind. It felt like it as well when you had to trigger any buttons on the RW100. However with new bracket the support bar that extends under the unit takes all the strain off of the back of the units housing and provides a very solid feel when triggering any of the features on the unit. And since RWH 10 will work with the older units in Tama's RW line it makes for a great retro-fit on the older models. Features on the RW 200 have been greatly improved upon over all. I want to point out some main features in particular that I find extremely helpful in live playing situations. The separation of the Start / Tempo functions was a great improvement. The Start button now sits large at the bottom of the unit, and only starts and stops the metronome. No more second function button to press to trigger a Tap in. This made for some interesting live play situations on the older models. Especially since you had to change function again once you had the tempo, to start the tempo you just tapped in. The Tap in button sits at the top left of the unit near the mounting point to the bracket. This is an especially welcomed change since its placement provides the most stability. This is of great importance given that you want to establish the tempo you wanted on the first tap in attempt. Nothing worse in the live play scenario than needing to carry out a one handed, tap in, a second or third time, simply because of the instability in mounting. These issues are solved with the new bracket (RWH 10) and the new RW 200's functionality improvements. With the mention of the separation of the Start and Tap function buttons, it is especially worth noting the precision touch of the the buttons on the RW 200. Not only do they trigger precisely when depressed, but have an extremely solid feel as well. This goes for not only the buttons, but the rotating nobs as well. Though the unit may be slightly similar in appearance, the design and electronics in the RW 200 are very much state of the art. The storage of preset tempos to be used for a live play situation has been greatly expanded as well. You can now store 30 preset tempos on the RW 200. This is a great improvement over the older units. I used to have to program my older(RW 100) unit with tempos I needed for the next set during the break between sets since its storage capacity was so limited. Not anymore. When triggering tempos you have two options. A Practice mode and Stage mode. In Practice mode the tempo selected stays audible with the lights flashing on the unit. In the Stage mode the unit will silence the audible click after 8 bars and then hold in a standby status. You can press the Start / Stop button as many times as needed, and it will trigger in 8 bar of metronome segments. The Stage mode can be especially useful if a "click in" is all that is needed. This feature combined with the Line level and Headphone output jack, the click can then be sent to the other members of the band without and audience being aware. This makes for a much cleaner audible and visible presentation from the stage. Though these are just a few of the numerous great features the RW 200 offers. These were some of the most valuable improvements over the older models in my harsh evaluation from a working drummers operating perspective.

Sim Card

I admit to not owning a RW200 yet, but it appears to me this unit would even be more productive to have in addition Sim Card capabilities. I don't know about other drummers, but my shows on average perform more than 30 songs! Even if this is not a big issue ... having the ability to program and save the tempos to more than 30 songs on a Sim Card would be very useful.
