This is chock full of features and hands-down the best budget portable metronome on the market, with only one caveat which'll be mentioned later. A terrific buy for students.

Battery life is great, getting around 200 hours out of two AAs. The display is clear and easy to read. I've dropped it once and it didn't cause any problems. For a digital metronome, the beep isn't an irritating chirp as some other metronomes tend to be.

It can generate any tone on the chromatic scale for manual tuning, and even allows you to adjust the pitch slightly away from A440 if you need to (sometimes necessary, especially for wind players playing outdoors in the extreme cold)

It can handle 1 - 7 beats per measure, and can give you triplets, 8ths or 16th notes on top of that.

It has a handy tap feature to determine tempo.

This isn't perfect, it's not a Dr. Beat (the best metronome on the market, period). The volume control is very sensitive, and if you have it in your pocket you can easily accidentally blast your ears with headphones on. An LED would be a nice addition.

The caveat mentioned earlier is this: Most people prefer a dial to adjust tempo as opposed to the up and down buttons of this model (The Matrix MR500, MR800 and the Seiko SQ50 have less features and lack a volume control, but do have a dial and LED). Still, for the price and the features, you can't beat it.

This item is worth purchasing if you don't want to expend 80 bucks or more on a Dr.Beat. It's really cheap but still very good quality and nice features.

Features:

-Tap In: So you can find out the time for the musics you want to play. It's a little hard to use because you're not a robot and there will always be diferences from one interval from another so you have to try a bit before you actually discover the tempo.

-Note: Great for tunning your instrument by ear, goes from A4 to G#4 and you can even calib the A Hz (413-420, 438-445)

-Time Signatures: 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 5/4, 6/4, 7/4, 8th, triplets, 16th, and some variations on the 8th and 16th. I expected more on this side, but it's not disappointing, however.

Volume: Has a good volume, I can play on my 15W Marshall by half-volume and still hear it fine. If you want more volume put on a headphone, however to make it come from both sides you need to be a little patient and not move the metronome too much.

Quality: GREAT! I mean it, I've already dropped it 4 times from about 4 feets and still working. LOL. The sound does not distort when you put it to max, don't worry.

The color of mine is darker and more metalic, which I like. It is a great metronome that I use now everyday for my piano students. However, even with the volume turned up all the way, it is not loud enough for late intermediate students playing "f" with the damper pedal. That's why I'm giving it 4 stars. However, over all it is a great value.

I bought this based on at least two other reviews that described the sound it makes as a "click". It is not a click it is a high pitched electronic "beep". That beep gets lost with notes played by guitar, etc. It also could be louder so I took two stars off for these two drawbacks. Otherwise it keeps time like it is supposed to. Look elsewhere if you wanted a click sound metronome.

The KORG MA-30 is a great buy! It has a built-in tuner(for every note), more than sufficient volume, and is very easy to use. In addition, the musician can simply adjust the metronome so that it plays on certain parts of the beat. For example, the KORG MA-30 can play triplets, swing eighth notes, or on the first and fourth sixteenth notes, when the style or rhythmic pattern demands it. It is also small and compact, and very transportable...a lot of POW for the price!

My problem with this metronome is that it isn't loud enough to cut through the the volume of my banjo. The other issue I have is the tone. The reguarl click is fine but the ping for the downbeat gets lost. It should be a thump not a ping.

I can't recommend this.

If you don't mind a metronome click that is an actual tone (sounds like a high "D") you will give this 4 or 5 stars like most people. My old metronome emitted a percussive click which I think is better. If one is playing notes/tones on your instrument and the metronome click is a tone as well I think that isn't good. It is also very annoying. If this is your first metronome it might not bother you.

I wanted a metronome that was small enough to carry in a gig bag, and had a decent click sound. I chose this because it sounds good, and does not have an irritating beep sound like the ones from Quick Time.
