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.
