        This is absolutely the best metronome on the market. People said earlier that you can't keep the light on when it says clearly in the instructions to press and hold light and power at the same time and it will remain on. The built in coach feature is great for warmups. I love the memory settings because during high school I had drumline, jazz band, show choir, and my other bands songs all programmed into it with space for more. The bad thing was when the battery died all my tempos were gone and it was a pain to redo them all.

        This is a decent metronome. Easy to use for a practice tool. The biggest gripe I have is that the battery life is very limited. I cant get over how fast it eats up batteries. Yes you can plug it in to a wall outlet but then it is not as portable and becomes cumbersome.It would have been awesome if there was a built in tuner. A audible tone works but for the price, there should be a built in chromatic tuner too.

          Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

          This is by far the best metronome I've owned. I don't
          know what more you could expect from a metronome.
          Yes, the light does stay on. Worzit 1 was right,
          "DB90" will become synonymous with "metronome".
          Pay a little extra now, in the end, you'll be glad
          you did.

            This is one of those products that everyone assumes you have because it's the industry standard. Eventually DB-90 will be synonymous with "metronome" just as "Kleenex" is for tissue.

              Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

              Lots of features. The display is VERY small. Many of the key indicators are too small to see quickly. The blinking light is also to dim. I also have the Tama Rhythm watch which has a better display and much easier to use. It does nto have all the features of the Dr-90 but is much more practical for a drummer.

              Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

              Our praise band uses this metronome. As the worship leader, I ask the drummers to please use it. Playing with a metronome makes the band a much tighter band. We find the battery lasts through about two weeks of services. This would be six services and approximately six to eight rehearsals. We use an Aviom system for stage monitoring and have a dedicated line for the metronome. The roller dial is useful for quickly dialing up the next song tempo.

              Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

              Every musician should have and USE a metronome...especially drummers. This metronome I have had for about a year now and although it has many features, I find it cumbersome to use. The LCD display light stays on a very short time and you can't program it to stay on indefinitely. Although you can program numerous tempos, it is very difficult to step from one to another... press button twice, then roll the wheel and hope that you have the right one because you can't see the program number because the display is dark. I use a metronome at most shows and am looking for another one.

              I've been using this gadget for about a year...It's pretty fragile, it is def not loud enough for live and rehersal unless you put stereo in-ear bugs in both ears (so I use a headphone amp) and there are 4 sounds available and they all pretty much suck...a simple cow bell sound would top em all by far...oh, and it's pretty expensive too.I don't recommend unless you need it to sync to comp software like reason, ableton et... that was the reason I bought it and it does that well.
