Amazon.com

The Korg KDM-2 is an easy-to-use, electric metronome that visually marks the tempo with remarkable accuracy, and delivers a powerful sound like never before.

The Korg KDM-2 visually marks the and delivers a powerful sound. Click to enlarge.

Easy-to-see, large LED.

Encoder-type TEMPO/CALIB dial.

Improved cylindrical resonator speaker
This digital electric metronome delivers even clearer and more powerful sound, and Korg's acclaimed cylindrical speaker has been further enhanced with an improved resonator structure to ensure that it is easily heard. Even loud instruments will not overpower the unmistakable, clear sound of the Korg KDM-2. And with the KDM-2 you have the choice of selecting 3 different PCM sounds (cowbell/agogo/clave) for the beat, so you can choose which sound you want to compliment the instrument you're playing. The volume can also be adjusted to the most appropriate level. Since there's a PHONE jack built in to this electric metronome, you can connect a mini-plug (1/8") earphone, perfect for private practice.

Easy-to-see, large LED
The START/STOP switch located on the top panel of the Korg KDM-2 blinks in two colors--red and green--providing for unmistakable visual indication of the tempo. The START/STOP switch is a great feature if you are looking to practice with a silent metronome.

A variety of beats cover even sophisticated rhythms
From basic beats to variations like son clave and rumba clave, the KDM-2 contains a total of 19 beat patterns. You can set the tempo in any one of three ways. Full Step mode lets you adjust the tempo over a range of 30 through 252 in steps of one. Pendulum Step mode lets you set the tempo using the preset tempo settings, as on a mechanical metronome. and Tap Tempo lets you set the tempo by pressing the TAP switch at the desired interval.

Use the reference pitches to tune by ear
Sound Out mode outputs a reference tone that you can use as a tuning guide. You can listen to any one of the twelve pitches from C4-B4. You can also adjust the A4 frequency (calibration) in a broad range from 410 Hz-480 Hz.

Memory backup function
The KDM-2 provides a memory backup function that remembers the specified tempo, beat, calibration, and reference pitch, even when the power off.

Designed for stability and ease of use
The large LCD screen on this electric metronome makes it easy to view the settings. An encoder-type TEMPO/CALIB dial and a Step Select switch provide quick and direct access to settings and functions. Featuring an original design that is compact yet stable, the KDM-2 is at home on your desk, your piano, or anywhere else.

Long battery life
The KDM-2 is designed for long battery life. The electric metronome will continue marking an accurate tempo for approximately 120 hours of continuous use at a tempo of 120 beats per minute.

Three-Year Warranty
Korg digital and electric metronomes purchased from a Korg USA authorized dealer now have a three-year warranty.

Customer Reviews

I own several types of metronoms(seiko, yamaha, Dr. Beat) but this is the best one.
okp
This metronome is great for anybody who needs a basic metronome that is simple to use and lightweight.
Sumner R. Meehan
It has a volume control and it gets really loud so you can hear it even during forte passages.

but it doesn't do much more than the less-expensive Korg MA-30. That said, I like the KDM-2 quite a bit. It's an improvement on the KDM-1 (which I like very much also - it's just a more basic metronome), and similarly designed. The KDM-2 shares these features with the MA-30: tap-in beat; subdivided beats; 12 calibrated tuning notes (you can choose the exact tuning - A=440, 441, etc); mute button. The added KDM-2 features: son clave & rumba beats (3-2, and 2-3); choice of 4 different click sounds; LCD display; LED beat indicator; loud volume (I play trumpet & have no problem hearing the metronome), and tempo selection in standard metronomic increments (60, 63, 66, etc) in addition to +/- 1 beats (60, 61, 62, etc).

You should get the KDM-2 instead of the MA-30 if you need the extra latin beats, the different click sounds (at least one of which should cut through most loud playing, or possibly small ensemble volume) or the LED indicator (the light however doesn't seem as strong as that of the KDM-1). If these extras aren't enough, the MA-30 would be an excellent choice.

I purchased this as a gift for my wife for her piano. As far as we are concerned, this thing is perfect. It's intuitive and easy to use. It's loud. It has more beats than we'll probably ever use, and it has a number of other nice features that make it a perfect metronome for our (her) needs.

The device is also rather small. I pictured it bigger, but was surprised to find that it is tiny and doesn't draw too much attention while sitting on the piano. Among the other metronomes I've looked at, this one is also rather pleasing aesthetically -- though that is hardly a reason to buy.

The main reason to buy this is that it is loud with a nice click sound and it can be used for any instrument, even drums. I balked at the price, but it is a precision device and it shows. We are very pleased.

Like the other lowballer, York, I too found the metronome to be clever, stylish, but with a major flaw. I liked the wheel and large digital display, much easier to jump to different values without those tedious up and down buttons. But the wheel is almost impossible to turn if on a music stand! One has to put down their instrument, use one hand to hold the metronome, and one finger to turn the wheel. Even that is a bit challenging due to the stylish but useless indent on the wheel. Still, I liked the product enough to risk a modification. I driilled a tiny hole in the wheel, and then screwed a 1/4 inch bead on the wheel so I could push the wheel around with one finger(I have the metronome in a frame to hold it tightly to the music stand. Works great though I could have easily ruined the entire product by drilling too far. But one wonders why this couldnt have been done by the designers, who may or may not be musicians who practice using a music stand.

Actually, a GREAT metronome, except apparently I'm the only one who finds the dial exasperatingly hard to turn. A simple set of up/down buttons would have been much more ergonomic. I solved the design flaw with carpet tape (double-sided duct tape) and the tops of two zip ties. I posted an image under "customer images". Now it works beautifully and is easy as pie to spin to the desired tempo. I rated only one star in an effort to get Korg's attention. Really an excellent product with an annoyingly designed tempo dial.

This is the first metronome I have owned. Now I realize I really should have gotten one years ago. I feel like it is already helping me stay on tempo more consistently.
I can't make comparisons with other models but this one seems to be PLENTY LOUD with different choices of the type of click you desire, and with the headphone jack output, you can listen to it through earbuds or feed it into a monitor system in a band setting. Many times our band tends to speed up the tempo, even if only slightly, during a song...this helps you lock in what the tempo should be when you are practicing.

The controls are pretty straight forward and easy to use except for the TEMPO CONTROL WHEEL. Gee, the only reason I can think of for this engineering oversight is that it fits in a box better? It would work ok if the resistance on the wheel was less. But from the box, you pretty much have to use 2 hands to operate it. I modified it the first day I got it by using super glue gel and a small wire nut to make a tiny knob on the wheel. It works smoothly now because this gives you plenty of leverage to crank it with a finger.

The tap function is nice, just tap the beat as you listen to a song and it computes what the tempo is. It also has a light corresponding to the beat, red on the 1 beat, then green 'til you get back to 1.
This unit may not be as portable as some but it will fit in my guitar case pocket. This is not a concern as I just got it to use at home. The unit can also emit reference pitch tones for tuning or ear training.

If it holds up, I will be satisfied now that it has been "customized". As I say, I would rate it higher if not for the control wheel design.

This metronome has all the right features but I have had THREE of them in 6 months. They work fine, then stop, change the batteries then it may or may not work again. I am done returning this model - time to find something reliable.
