A metronome and tuner with wireless connectivity that allows a group of performers with a BBS-1 to feel or hear the same beat simultaneously.

The BBS-1 BodyBeat Sync builds on the silent pulsing metronome concept by allowing an unlimited number of performers-each equipped with a BBS-1-to synchronously feel or hear the same beat it through wireless connectivity. FCC approved, the BBS-1 transmits outside of standard wireless audio range so multiple groups can perform in the same area with no interference from one group to another.

Program tempos into the Peterson metronome's intuitive user interface and recall them as presets. You can also program them from a scoring program that's complete with complex changes and the BodyBeat Sync will store your tempo map in its memory.

You can either rehearse with it audibly or perform with it silently.

Peterson Electro-Musical Products introduced the first new approach in metronome technology in decades with the original BB-1 BodyBeat pulsating metronome. This wireless metronome is now used worldwide by music students and professionals alike.

  • Great idea, but very "plastic"

    As reviewed by Greg on 1/13/2011

    After months of waiting, I received my BBS-1 just after Christmas. Loaded with features, this thing does exactly what it's advertised to do. My biggest beef is that it feels very plastic and cheap, and sometimes the buttons hang up on themselves. It doesn't affect the performance, but Peterson should take a lesson from Boss on small gadget design (DB-30). I haven't tried connecting to the computer, or doing any of the tempo maps, nor have I tried syncing two of the units together. Unfortunately, I had to return my unit because the audio metronome would cut out randomly every few bars. I need this to work, because I have very special plans for this thing... Bottom line, I give it only 4 stars because of how cheap it feels.
