          Comments about Boss DB-30 - Dr. Beat Metronome with Rhythm Patterns:

          I love my new metronome! It is so easy to use and it keeps the time perfectly unlike other metronomes I have used on the past. I love the added bonuses of being able to have different kinds of rhythms such as clavet, etc. as well as being able to set it so you have where the accents are in the rhythm as well.
          Overall an unbeatable price for a metronome that has so much to offer besides just the regular time signature beats.

                For those that love the DB-90, this is a great product at a really good price. It has pretty easy to understand instructions. It's a lot of value in a small, portable package. The only issue is the product requires the 2032 flat batteries which can be pretty pricy. A welcome change would be a port for a wall plug to use instead of the batteries.

                        Great product overall! It is used a lot and the subdivided beat is vey helpful for tricky rhythms. The visual on the screen and blinking lights are also helpful. I would recommend this product to anyone in need of a metronome with subdivision and a little more features than a basic metronome.

                          The DB-30 does everything you would expect for its price. It's easy to operate - everything's self explanatory and you'll be up and running in no time.

                          The rhythm patterns are useful - especially for practicing in odd meters! The variable pitch is helpful to hear the downbeat.

                          The one drawback I've found is with the tap tempo feature - it's not particularly responsive; I found that using the up/down buttons is more accurate. Regardless of this, it's still a good product.
