The Peterson BodyBeat works like a standard metronome with audio speaker and headphone output, but it also allows you to quickly internalize the tempo through feel using the included Vibe Clip.
The Peterson BB-1 Metronome is suitable for every musician, student or professional, from percussionist to flute player and all points between. Even choral students can use this pulsing beat keeper!
The BodyBeat offers an alternate approach to typical metronome use by producing a pulsing vibration so that musicians can easily internalize the beat. The BodyBeat clips onto the belt line and a small separate Vibe Clip transmits the beat, in the form of a pulse (including subdivisions and accents) directly to you.
Research has shown that separate neural pathways to the brain exist for tactile impulses and visible/audible information which is why musicians find that tactile pulses are quickly internalized, allowing them to concentrate on reading and listening to the music without the constant distraction of an audio or visual metronome. Feeling the beat, not having to listen to clicks or look at blinking LEDs makes it much easier to focus on the music and playing in correct time.
The BodyBeat provides drummers and percussionists with a rhythmic pulse they can feel rather than hear, avoiding the fatigue and potential harm caused by prolonged exposure to monotonous clicks and cowbell sounds. This patented technology represents a significant advance in the metronome field. The BodyBeat can also be used like an ordinary metronome with audible and visual modes.

Comments about Peterson BodyBeat BB-1 Pulsing Metronome:
Been playing drums for a long time. No problems with my time, but I like to monitor while playing for consistance. I have the TAMA Rhythm watch, and I truly love my "Groove Guide". For a gigging player the guide is one of the best. Now this BodyBeat comes along!! Bought this knowing I could return it. Keeping it!!!! This is so cool! You don't have to follow lights or have a click in your ear. You feel it and it is well worth trying. You need to get used to it because this is a whole other way of time keeping. You could say it is a distant cousin of the "Butt Kicker" you would mount to your throne. Make a list of your tempos and keep it close. Set the tempo on the BodyBeat and off you go. I try to group songs with tempos together so having not to change it much. Longer cord would be nice to maybe set next to you but overall a great product!!
