Starting with the color, I do not like the turqoise top but thats all they had the other day. I tried out a Korg metronome but that one has a muted high noted xylophone sound to it. This Yamaha has more of a wooden metronome sound to it. The first position is similar to the WWV (shortwave broadcast 10.000 Mhz) second time click. It is a low sound like striking a 1/2" dowel with a drumstick. The second position sounds more like (to me) dripping water on a square Glad sandwich container. It is not unpleasant to listen to like the Korg model (for comparison). The beat is selected by a dial on the bottom along side the volume control which I set at about a 3 for everyday practice on the table. Not too loud but not too soft. The volume level below 3 tapers off real quick though. Overall, I am very satisfied with the pleasant woody tone of the click, and of the choice of tones. I would definately recommend this one for someone interested in the sound rather than the doodads, buttons, gimmicks and unnecessary add ons.

      Comments about Yamaha QT-1 Metronome:

      I have hearing issues and the first metronome I bought (not a Yamaha) wasn't loud enough for me to hear while playing. I bought this primarily because it was reported to be quite loud. Well on full volume it is and it's great. I can actually hear it. It is a fairly simple device. Volume, BPM, on/off and a two-way switch to choose the pitch of the beep it makes. The BPM and volume are dials set to the edge of the device so you can grab the metronome with one hand and quickly adjust it. It takes one 9 volt battery.

        Metronome is for grade-school daughter in 2nd year of piano lessons. This metronome is very easy to use and just right as a practice aid. Now her brother wants one of his own.

        Comments about Yamaha QT-1 Metronome:

        When playing the piano at F or FF level, I can still hear this wonderful metronome. I don't care that it jumps a few bpm; when I am pushing myself to pick up the speed, 4 bpm is just fine. I can easily change the speed in the middle of a piece, if needed. The much more expensive metronome I have been using sits idly by in its glass bowl (an attempt to amplify.) I have already seen improvement in my performance thanks to this little metronome.

            Reliable, durable. Volume adjusts from quiet to loud. Batteries last a long time. The only negative I've found is that it won't sit well on a sheet music stand (too wide and it rolls if you stand it sideways).

            Excellent Practice Tool

            By Michael Kelly

            from Long Island, NY

            Comments about Yamaha QT-1 Metronome:

            I've had this for 4-5 years now & I love it! It has adjustable volume & two different tones; A typical 'wood block' & a higher pitched, more electronic 'chirp'. At full volume it's perfect for playing acoustic guitar with. And for electric, the blinking red light on top proves useful as well. There are only two things that keep it from being a 5-star for me: The tempo increments are in blocks of four, which is fine for practicing, but not very useful to nail down a specific tempo of a recording. And the second thing is the lack of different beats/accents. So drummers might not like it, but it's perfect for guitar. Overall, an excellent practice tool & highly recommended.

            Louder than the rest and tough

            By JSustain

            from Dallas, TX

            Comments about Yamaha QT-1 Metronome:

            This Yamaha QT-1 Metronome was a good buy for me. I bought it 2 and 1/2 years ago and it still works great. I own two of them, one for travel, one for home. I have dropped them countless times, stuffed it into bags with books and other hard objects, and left them running all night. The batteries last literally for many months in these things!I recently tried to replace it, but after going to several gutiar shops, I could not find a metronome that was louder.The reason I tried to replace was because I wanted a metronome that was adjustable in 1 beat-per-minute (bpm) increments. The dial on the bottom of the Yamaha QT-1 goes from 40 to 120 bpm in 4 bpm increments. From 120 to 144 bpm it it graduates in 6 bpm steps. Finally, from 144 to 208, there are 8 bpm steps.My search was fruitless, so I just am just staying with the Yamaha, primarily because it is loud.By the way, it also has a small red light that blinks at the top of its dome, if you want to use it in silent mode.

            It's all about listening.

            By Benj Clarke

            from Long Beach CA

            Comments about Yamaha QT-1 Metronome:

            I am a professional guitar and bass teacher and this is my favorite recommended metronome. The volume of the click is loud enough, the timbre distinct enough, to be heard with a guitar so the player can listen to both elements at the same time easily. And the two different click sounds are good for switching when you need to change up (because a practicing musician will sort of "hypnotize" him or herself out of hearing a metronomic click after a sustained period). The QT1 is an uncomplicated and effective piece of gear. I have enjoyed mine for many years now.

            Great Product. Awkward Shape.

            By sethlittlemusic

            from Boston, MA

            Comments about Yamaha QT-1 Metronome:

            I purchased one of these metronomes about four years ago, and I am very happy with it. It doesn't have an annoying digital chirp like so many others do. It has an adjustable volume control, which I love, and it's ruggedly constructed. My one complaint is about its round shape. I have had a difficult time of using it in scenarios where I have only a music stand on which to set it. It tends to roll around instead of staying where I want it. Other than that, I've been extremely pleased with it and highly recommend it to others!
