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.

Pretty Good

It's a pretty good metronome; however, it's not very loud. I'm a drummer in a rockband and this metronome isn't nearly loud enough for me. The features and stuff on it are cool...Read complete review

Comments about Boss DB-60 Dr. Beat Metronome:

I haven't really put much time into using this beyond keeping simple time. I am still trying to figure this thing out. It is very versatile once you figure it out I'm sure, but I have not put in the time yet.

        Works great for practicing on a pad. Not so much on a kit as you can't hear it.

        Great metronome. I've used others but really like the functionality and ease of use of this one. Price is right too. No negatives that I can see so far. Have used it for two weeks and am very happy.

        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.

        Comments about Boss DB-60 Dr. Beat Metronome:

        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.

        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.
