BOSS DB-90 overview

  • 1Description

The DB-90 Dr. Beat from BOSS is a metronome that is loaded with sound and drum patterns to make your practice session less mundane and more musical. It can be used by musicians, students, or teachers in applications for sight-reading, ensemble playing, rehearsals, and more.

The DB-90 Dr. Beat features a rhythm coach function with an onboard mic, a reference-tone function for tuning, an instrument input, MIDI input, and other handy tools to make learning fun and effective. Some other features include the following: Quick rhythm customizing with Note Mixing function, dedicated Sliders, Buttons, Rotary Dial, and a large backlit LCD for user-friendly operation.

In addition, there are four metronome sounds including a human voice-counting sound. A Reference Tone function makes it easy to verify tuning by ear. The DB-90 is built with inputs jacks for guitar and bass instruments that let you monitor the instruments using standard headphones.

Finally, the DB-90 Dr. Beat includes a soft case, a 9V battery, and a BOSS M8 nut so you can attach it to a cymbal stand (sold separately).

Better Beats, Better Practice
The Note Mixing function allows you to instantly create a variety of beats by adjusting the levels of five different note values. Front-panel sliders, buttons, and a large rotary dial provide instant, hands-on access to edit parameters
Plug into Rhythm Coach
This innovative follow-along feature has four training modes to help build your accuracy, speed, and endurance. With the DB-90's onboard microphone, you can use the Rhythm Coach functions with acoustic drums, or plug a Roland V-Pad into the Trigger input (sold separately). Play along, and chart your progress
Guitarists and bassists can directly plug into the DB-90 without any other gear required, and monitor via connected headphones

    BOSS DB-90 reviews

    DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from B&H and Dr. Beat I have to offer up rave reviews for B&H after my purchase and receipt of my newest Dr. Beat (have had 3 previously). First, the price for Dr. Beat at B&H was better than all other online stores AND they shipped it free! They promised within a couple of days and BAM. . .there it was. Received immediate email status on progressive updates. Excellent!! And for those that understand Dr. Beat, well, it's the standard within the marching arts community. Great tool. Why is this the 4th? Has much to do with the environment (marching band), carelessness of the students (and once maybe me) and the weather. Hated buying a 4th but this one had the best price of them all!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from For Beginner Drummer:Tons of Features; More than you'll need Positives:Plenty of features and inputs. Quick access to Tempo/Volume/Beats/Accent Beats. Rhythm Coach, Cymbal stand adapter Negatives:Price, too many unnecessary features for Beginner Drummer, Large footprint, Cymbal stand(in my opinion)is in wrong place orients Dr. Beat upside down. Could be louder. Overall, you won't need another metronome unless portability is an issue.
