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.

            It is intuitive, easy to use. I have not even looked at the owners manual and it is doing everything I need it to do.

            The tap feature is very important since I sometimes have to figure out how fast the song is played on the radio. Then I can practice at the right BPM

                  Comments about Korg MA-1 Digital Metronome:

                  The metronome was shipped via UPS on December 8th with a projected delivery date of December 16th. As of December 22nd, we still do not have the package. When I chatted online with Musician's Friend on December 18th, the representative explained that with small packages UPS will use UPS Mail Innovations which transfers the package to USPS. I told the rep that I did not want USPS shipping, only UPS and he said there was no way to only choose UPS. The agent also said I should have the item by December 21st, but alas it is still not here. If companies continue using UPS Mail Innovations for shipping they will lose more customers! This is not the first company that I have had this problem with in regards to lengthy shipping times when the USPS gets involved. NOT A HAPPY CUSTOMER!

                      I bought this because I have always found Korg to have good quality. This is no different. A good tool for any musician. I love how you can change the rhythm type from quarter notes to eighth notes, to triplets and beyond. Has been helping me build speed on the guitar. It is a bit finicky to change the settings sometimes, but nothing too bad and not enough to bump it down from 5 stars.

                                  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.

                                          It's all it is advertised to be. I wish it would have louder volume. I'll have to invest in ear phones.

                                          Just needs a small protective case - would not expect that for the price, so I adapted something I already had.
