The Korg KDM-2 Digital Metronome lets you hear the tempo clearly, even over loud instruments. Korg has built in an improved cylindrical resonator speaker and your choice of 3 different PCM tones (cowbell/agogo/clave). The KDM-2's adjustable volume level and a headphone jack let you practice at the volume you want.

See the tempo with the KDM-2's easy-to-see large LED. The start/stop switch blinks in red and green for silent metronome practice.

The KDM-2 contains a total of 19 beat patterns from basic beats to variations like son clave and rumba clave. You can set the tempo in any of 3 ways: Full Step mode lets you adjust the tempo over a range of 30 through 252BPM in single steps; Pendulum Step mode lets you set the tempo using the preset tempo settings, as on a mechanical metronome; and Tap Tempo mode lets you set the tempo by pressing the TAP switch at the desired interval.

Sound Out mode outputs a reference tone that you can use as a tuning guide. You can listen to any of the 12 pitches from C4-B4. You can also adjust the A4 frequency (calibration) in a broad range of 410Hz-480Hz.

The KDM-2 provides a memory backup function that remembers the specified tempo, beat, calibration, and reference pitch even when the power is turned off.

The large LCD screen makes it easy to view the settings. An encoder-type TEMPO/CALIB dial and a Step Select switch provide quick and direct access to settings and functions. Featuring an original design that's compact yet stable, the KDM-2 is at home on your desk, your piano, or anywhere else.

The KDM-2 is designed for long battery life. It will continue marking an accurate tempo for approximately 120 hours of continuous use at a tempo of 120BPM.

The best for quick tempo changes between songs!

Comments about Korg KDM-2 Digital Metronome:

I am a pianist doing a practice gig every week going from song to song quickly, so I needed to be able to make big changes in tempos quickly in between songs for two hours. The tempo knob is fast and easy to use, and the inc/dec buttons are right next to it to change beats per measure quickly. I prefer earbuds in each ear, but this metronome only has a TS (tip/sleeve) jack for a mono earphone. I ordered a 1/8" TRS female to TS male adaptor, and it works great now with my earbuds. It has tap tempo, volume control, a loud speaker for rehearsing without earbuds. The start/stop button, which flashes for a visual beat indicator, is large and on the top so it is easy to turn off and on during the song. Works great for me!

Comments about Korg KDM-2 Digital Metronome:

Nice metronome. Plenty loud. Doesn't have an annoying sound like some. Has several different sounds that are easy to select. Very easy to use. Intuitive controls. A bit pricey perhaps, but it's a very nicely designed unit.

Great Metronome...period!

By Dustin Hinton

from Cedar Rapids, IA

Comments about Korg KDM-2 Digital Metronome:

This metronome is not only a great price but a great product. Has everything you really need. The LED is super easy to follow while playing and tap in is a breeze. The best feature is the resonating cylinder makes this things super loud if you are not using headphones. You will not be disappointed.

Comments about Korg KDM-2 Digital Metronome:

when the worker at guitar center recommended this, i wasnt too sure on spending that much for just a metronome, but with all the effects and different click style it had its definitely worth it and it can get pretty darn loud too

By Marquita L

from Chula Vista

Comments about Korg KDM-2 Digital Metronome:

This is the best metronome ever! It's portable so I can practice anywhere. It's versitile so I can change the sound if I need to be quieter in practice areas. With the flash, I can hear AND see the beat over the music as I practice. I can't begin to explain how much it has helped my timing. I totally love it...

ok. but ....

By ray

from miami, fl

Comments about Korg KDM-2 Digital Metronome:

korg kdm 2 metronome is ok. but i think for the price is steep. the resonance cylinder gives depth to sound. but only 2 of the 4 metronome sounds are useful. and the addition of 4 latin rhytims ares ok, but actually are 2 cause the other 2 are the same. and it has no pendul display wich you may like as i do. bottom line, for the price, i would look somewhere else. i own a MA-30 from korg at a 1/3 price of this and is almoest the same. or start thinking abouta drum machine.
