The kids love it and their piano teacher loves it,too.
Barry A. Fullerton
I think it is the most practical metronome and works as it should, although a little bit pricy, yet it is a necessity.
Archi
Then I test it with online metronome, the result also shows it is not precise.

I hope this review is helpful to anyone seeking a highly accurate metronome. I am a music major, I teach at a public school, and I perform frequently; needless to say, my metronome is one of my most important possessions.

I bought this metronome because I was frustrated with the cheaper digital metronomes--their beep is both annoying and difficult to hear over a wind instrument. I borrowed my roommates nice wooden wittner before ordering my own; it was both accurate at audible. So, overtaken with nostalgia and faith in old technology, I purchased a plastic model from Amazon. Came on time, nicely packaged, etc. However, when I started the pendulum for the first time, I was shocked by the definite lilt between beats. To be honest, I am not sure if a "non-musician" would be able to hear it. Nevertheless, all of my fellow music-student friends wrinkled their noses after just six beats of my shiny new metronome. It seems that if the metronome is not placed on a perfectly level surface, it will not function properly.

To give the device a fair trial, I ran it next to my old digital Korg metronome. The pair were out of sync in seconds flat.

I gave this two stars because, well, it's kind of cool. It's clearly constructed well and appears to be durable. Despite this, however, a faulty metronome is to a musician like a warped level to a carpenter: useless! Needless to say, I will be mailing mine back in the next couple of days.

I got this Wittner metronome to replace an old Seth Thomas I picked up off e-bay but was never happy with. A full windup only powered the thing for 3-4 minutes and as it unwound the BPM timing slowed down. I don't like the sounds produced with the electronic metronomes but they are easier to travel with. This Wittner has a nice, hollow, wooden sounding 'tock - tock' and I'm not sure if it ever unwinds as it's been going stong for over 45 minutes on one windup! It's BPM is right on and doesn't waver. I don't know where the negative reviews of 'cheap plastic reproduction' come from? This instrument is solidly built and looks great. I'd prefer a solid cover rather than the see-thru plastic, but that's trivial. At half the price of the 801K wooden veneered plastic (they evidently don't make 100% solid wood ones anymore,) these are a great bargain which I would recommend. I know my music teacher is going to be happy that I'm finally using a metronome regularly.

I was very pleased with this metronome. Although I bought a plastic model, the mechanism is identical to the more expensive wooden models. Electronic metronomes don't compare to this traditional mechanical metronome. When I use it I feel I have a more organic relationship with the metronome and can keep the rhythm much easier than with an electronic metronome. I love it.

You can hear this metronome clearly over the loudest note on the piano. It is easy to use. Solid exterior which looks beautiful on the piano.

Force yourself to keep the tempo steady. It had been a while since I played in a band. I bought this metronome mainly for looks only to find out how terrible my timing had gotten. It has been a real playing aid. My friends see the metronome and think I must be good...

Noise is loud. Wish there was a way to tone it down. Also, on the really slower beats, you can't free the beater from the holder (sorry, don't know what all the terms are). The top part is too narrow.

This metronome, while visually appealing, was dysfunctional out of the box. There is a notable discrepancy in note length between tiks and taks. Impossible to play along with. Would not recommend.
