Not good for drumming


from Clinton, IA

Comments about Korg MA-1 Digital Metronome:

I've had a couple of these, and both had the same problem, when playing drums the volume output is way too quiet unless you were using brushes or maybe rods. Yes, it has a headphone jack, but for some reason the volume setting goes from inaudible to super loud from the smallest twist of the volume dial. Tried it with several pairs of headphones and has the same problem. Aside from those issues though, its not a bad metronome, good price, and if you were using it with a quieter instrument it would be excellent.
