      Comments about Boss DB-90 - Professional Metronome:

      It is used for tempo timing while playing the drums. Most everything about is it great, however it would be nice if there was a feature to easily put the ones saved in a different order. If this is a feature we haven't found nor is it noted in the instructions, but we bought it because one of the reviews we read said it had that feature and it doesn't. This is used for practice and live performances so it has to change everytime the set list changes. That is the main thing that comes to mind that would be nice to have that it is missing. Other than that it has a lot of other great features.

      A wonderful product. The only improvement I would make would be to include a tuner, which would make the device more useful with a range of instruments.

      Comments about Boss DB-90 - Professional Metronome:

      This metronome has no substitutes, nothing comes close to the competition. Tempo Watch cant touch this guy. The DB-90 is an incredible machine. What sold me on this outside of the years in high-school where we never did anything without one, was the midi sync and the faders. The only software metronome that comes close to simulating this comes inside of protools, so if your not running PT, your stuck with a major lack of control. I tried making my one but it's a major pain to make and use with beat pad deal. I do find it odd that the 8th and 16th faders only control their "off-beat" but the triplet control both off beat trips and the down beat.

        I use a DB-90 as my click track generator for live performances and as a drummer it is easy to use the optional footswitches to start/stop and advance through the 50 custom presets. I find that a sustain pedal works smoother than a momentary / toggle switch.

          I recently joined a Brazilian Carnival Bateria and found this tool essential in learning complex rhythms. It has a dazzling array of standard and variable beats and lets you customize your rhythms and sounds to exactly what you're trying to practice to. It is VERY easy to use. I would recommend it to serious musician who wants to improve his or her rhythmic skills.

          We've used this metronome for 5 weekend services at our church for 7yrs. It's been a tank! We decided that it would be good to buy a back up since it's been worked so hard and dropped numerous times!

            Best Metronome I've owned! Being a professional drummer for over 30 years, a good metronome is essental for practicing and working on your internal clock. Although a little pricey, this metronome does it all from the included loop patterns to play along with, to the coaching portion to test your ability to play in time, to the memory function where you can add your set list for live performance and scroll through your set to obtain song tempos, this metronome does a great job.
