  • top of the line metronome

    As reviewed by mike mcaloon on 7/22/2009

    I'm a drummer and I use this metronome to practice and play live with as a click track. I like how I can run a 1/4 cable to the mixer for the band to put in their monitors, and then run a 1/8 headphone to my in ears. The two most important buttons are in a good spot tempo tap and start/stop. The internal speaker is loud enough to practice snare drum with but it gets lost if you play the full kit. I mount this on my hi-hat stand and it's easy to reach and adjust tempos during the set. It also accepts a foot pedal for start stop function that way. Make sure you pick up the a/c adapter because it will go through 9v batteries pretty quick.

  • It's the Best Solution I've found for live metronome use

    As reviewed by David Straley on 6/12/2012

    I wanted a metronome for live use. I play keys and every drummer I've ever worked with will "drift" over time. They may think they don't, but they do. Back in the 70's I read an interview with the drummer for "Yes", and he talked about using a metronome live. I was shocked; it had never occurred to me. So a few years ago, I convinced our drummer to try it. He agreed. I will say that every drummer I've met hates playing with a metronome. But nevertheless we gave it a shot. It took a while to get it to be "natural", but we kept tweaking the way we do it. That brings me to today. Now I realized that in order to really do this right, it is I who needs to control the metronome - not the drummer. (That's another discussion.) That means that now I had to find a solution. I read reviews from all over the place on every machine I could find. I considered using my Roland drum machine, but it's tempo knob was too flakey, so that wouldn't work, either. I checked out metronomes in person at Guitar Center after reading as many reviews as I could. This one - the Roland DB-90 - was by far the most expensive metronome. Do you want to spend money? I don't. When I play (praise and worship genre) I typically have 13 songs, and there are multiple sets. Not many machines could handle that many tempos. This one stores 50. Also, I would really like to be able to advance the songs with a foot switch. This one does that as well. So, I sprung for the thing. Paid full Guitar Center price, minus some little discount. Not happy about all that! (eBay prices were no better than Guitar Center because no one was selling this used.) However, this has been THE ANSWER to my problems. Now, the drummer and I hear both the music and the metronome in our earphones ? everyone else just the music. I program the tempos ahead of time. This programming time is SO FAST TO DO, I was really surprised. Including 6/8 tempos ? no problem. It probably takes me 5 minutes to program my 13 tempos and then to verify them. Then, in my live situationn, I advance from song to song with a foot switch. This has revolutionized our ?flow?. We only take a few seconds between songs now. Typically, people are clapping for the last song (amazing, eh?) while we are starting the next one. It makes for a real polished set, I tell you. We never used to be able to do that. This was the most expensive machine I found ? but this is worth it to me, because it genuinely solved my problem. (Your mileage may vary.) For gripes, I will say this: I do wish there were more selections of metronome sounds. There are (I think) 3 sounds, plus a 4th one which is a goofy robotic voice saying ?one, two, three, four, one, two three four ?? Pah-leese. I have a couple Roland synths and I know Roland has zillions of sounds at their fingertips. ?Hey Roland, you could do better than this with the sound choices in this DB-90 metronome, OK?? (?And give me a free upgrade when you fix it up, will you??) That?s it ? God bless!
