Overall I am very happy with this metronome! The only dislike I have so far is the headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm and I wish it was a 1/4". An adapter is no problem to find online but it is one more thing to misplace or forget to bring to a show or service. Some have had issues with the volume but I think if you play with quality headphones then this will not be a problem. During services the volume is not an issue because I run it through a preamp and through our Aviom's so all the musicians can hear the click. I play with Bose over the ear noise canceling headphones. At home, I normally plug into a mixer only so I can mix a track in as well but I have played MANY times with just plugging in headphones to the output and it has been PLENTY loud enough for me.
For the money, the features are great. 8 slot memory is good for me since I normally play 5 or 6 track set lists. Backlight is easy to access. I wish the volume was buttons rather then a side dial but normally I have an Aviom so its not a big issue but something to consider.
I have not owned the product for a long time so I can't say if it holds up or not but the buttons don't feel cheap, nor does the construction.

It's great..but...

By myspace.com/joshuabarnett

from Beaumont, TX

Comments about Boss DB-60 Dr. Beat Metronome:

I've been using this metronome in live situations of all kinds, from clubs to arenas. It does what I need it to do, which is keep me in time. I have two(2) greviances which are somewhat minor.1. It's not loud. I HAVE to run it through a headphone amp to hear the click clearly in live situations.2. It can only hold up to 8 presets. Most gigs I'm playing 10-12 songs and it would be great to program every tempo in that need, instead of just tempos that are not close to each other. i.e. I use the same preset for 150 and 156 since it's only a few clicks away.

Recording!

Comments about Boss DB-60 Dr. Beat Metronome:

My bands going into the studio and the producer told us to practice our songs by a click track. So we put this thing through a system and it worked amazing. I highly reccomend it if your in a band thats planning on recording. It's amazing!

Great Product

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Boss DB-60 Dr. Beat Metronome:

I couldn't have asked for something better. The price is a little high, but I think it's good that I dropped down a little extra cash for this thing. The backlight feature alone is worth the money. The volume is loud enough even while I play my drumset. I use the Vic Firth SIH1 headphones though, so I can't say how good it is otherwise. But all in all, great product.

Comments about Boss DB-60 Dr. Beat Metronome:

I particular like the tones of the accent beats and the ability to split.
Everything I need plus.
It appears to be well made but I haven't had it long enough to attest to the endurance.
A bit pricey but I obviously overcame that to make the purchase and am not displeased.

Works Great

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Boss DB-60 Dr. Beat Metronome:

I got this metronome just before I went to college for percussion studies. It works great at what a metronome should do, it keeps time. It also features the ability to do odd time signatures which can be helpful. The only gripe I have is that you can't hold down the tempo change button to get the tempo you need quickly. But overall, it does what I needed it to do, a metronome with more than just basic features.

One major problem

By Bobby-vqsOG

from NJ

Comments about Boss DB-60 Dr. Beat Metronome:

The fatal flaw in this is that a straight eighth note beat isn't an option. The eighth note options are either on the off beat combined with a rest, or in triplets. Not really an issue unless you are trying to set up a loop and need to put in straight eighth notes without a rest. I've tried many options and there isn't a workaround. I have a drum machine so it's not very important to me, since I only use this as a metronome, but you will not be able to creats any useful loops on this.

      Love this metronome! Love all the save features so you can recall on the fly between songs. I just wished it came with some sort of mounting bracket to attach to your hardware. Other than that, it's great! Love the huge display too!
