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.

This unit did not keep accurate beat. Noticed when I was practicing, the timing was inconsistant. I took it to my instructor to compare with his Wittner Metronome and within seconds it was off beat, than would sync than off again. I tested the unit by setting the BPM to 60 and using the seconds on a clock. Verified it was not working. I will be returning it. Any suggestions which one I should get? 01.19.20 UPDDATE: emailed mfr and they sent me new unit N/C. Great customer service! These things can happen and it is good to know the company will stand by it's products.

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.

I used to have an electric metronome but I had a difficult time following it. My sense of timing is good and I don't understand what the problem was with the beeping that threw me off. I thoght I was loosing it. I find this very easy to follow. I bought the less expensive plastic "wood look" one and am happy with it. It's a good value.

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...

It looks nice but falls off of time almost immediately upon activation, regardless of winding state. Useless as a functional metronome. Avoid this unless you only want a show piece.
