      This tool Is above and beyond what would be expected
      Now I am an old cat, I suffered through WIND UP metronomes.
      The beat would slow down , it would drive me nuts.
      This baby is digital, like an atmic clock, a quartz watch.
      The tap tune feature is great.
      I hear a groove in my head , tap the key and BOOM the metro is
      set to that tempo.
      The rhythm function is very useful for like a swing, or funk feel.
      It visually counts the 4 beats od a measure so you can see
      where you are in a measure, helps when reading some new charts, or
      writing a chart.
      The reference tones, all twelve are a nice plus.
      the sound is musical , doesn't get annoying
      Volume control is boss, when you want to play soft, or if your partner can't hear it.
      Auto shut off saves the battery.
      These Boss guys are GENIUSES

      Just recieved my MA1 metronome, and straight away the batteries that came with it were dead. To top it off the power button seems to not be working properly. I have to push it three or four times to get it to come on. After it is on it functions as it should, so I guess I'll just deal with it for now. I guess I should have paid a bit more for a better quality product.

              Comments about Korg MA-1 Digital Metronome:

              The maximum volume is too low, and requires external amplification to be useful (shame on
              me - I was warned by other reviewers). There is only one sound option. When amplified,
              the sound is cheap and tinny. I am returning it.

                I purchased this item to use in practicing my guitar. While I have studied music years ago, I am for all practical purposes starting over. Given that, I found that this product was easy to learn to use, and functioned just as described. All features were in working order upon receipt.

                    My piano teacher recommended your website for a metronome. I chose this product based on the reviews. It improved my practice after the 1st use and is fairly easy to use, after my teacher showed me how. The instructions were difficult to understand.
