This is every drummers friend. I call it the 'BOSS" because it has the final say in any group of egotistical musicians, it settles the ever debated timing factor.As a drummer, I took a cheap steel ruler, cut it down, used the existing hole that's in most of them and attach it to my snare using just a single lug screw. I added a little self-adhering velcro and stick the little MA-30 right next to where I work, between the hats and my snare.If I need to switch snares, it's just one lug screw change on each drum and I'm ready to go.Once you get the guitar gods to agree on the bps for the set list during practice, that's it... no more arguments.It seems everyone thinks they know what the right beat should be, and guitar players seem to be the ones that are in fantasy land most often. But once they agree to a bps, they're finally brought under control.They walk back to peek at the 'BOSS' during the instrumental bridges, shake their head, and go back to take care of business with no more trouble.This is an investment that no drummer should be without... it makes your chosen profession fun again. You can buy all kinds of more expensive equipment, but nothing does the most basic function like the little MA-30.It's tough, it's cheap, it has a pendulum that allows you plenty of room and time to adjust during the song... it calibrates, it has multiple rhythm set-ups, it's great.

Get better equipment before you try to bash an outstanding name in gear. Korg always delivers.

Good, but...

By Turn it up

Good clicker for use with internal speaker only. Even though the instructions state that the volume control works with earphones or from the output jack, it does not. Called Korg and they apologized and stated that the volume switch only operates as an on or off (mute button) function with the output jack used. So if you want to plug this into your amp it is either on full blast or not at all.

This is the first metronome I've worked with, but the reasearch I did before buying one paid off. It keeps time in multiple ways and offers a tuner. What else is needed in a metronome for the price? Totally happy with it. As for durability- time will tell.

Great Price for a Great Metronome

This is a great metronome for the price. If your not willing to fork over the money for a Dr. Beat, I highly recommend this metronome!

Good price, bad volume

By methedrummer-feWw4

It is good. But if your a drummer, use something to make it loud because it is not loud enough for to be over the drum, but thats with ear phones. But great for other instruments and soft drummers.

DRUMMERS TURN AWAY NOW

By DTMdrummer

from Kuna Idaho

See all my reviews

i got this metronome today and i do like it it does what it does BUT, it is way too quiet to play with drums. even with the headphone jack and nice behringer headphones i cant hear it and i am not so good at watching a little digital penjulum while i drum. bottom line if you cant hear the metronome over your drums what is really the point? my computer speakers are louder and i have a laptop. this little guy is good for a practice pad but if you are looking for practice on an actual drumset get a louder metronome. with someone would have told ME this earlier.

Great Value, But not for Drums

By GoogleDrumsGoogle

from Boston, MA

See all my reviews

I read a review that this metronome does not work well when playing drums and I have to agree. I use in ear headphones with sound isolation headphones over them, and it is pretty hard to hear the clicks whenyou are playing. It is great for any quieter setting, but when loud volume is not really optional, you really need something witha bit more power.Also, the headphone jack wore out so I could only hear from one ear piece. Whether this is a fault of the metronome or the headphones I can not say for sure.

Keep Looking...

By 125strat

from Nova Scotia, Canada

Like many, I bought this metronome thinking I got a good deal. Well, I was wrong. Playing on a drum kit along with this thing is next to impossible, as it just does not go loud enough. The quality of the metronome is also very bad. I used mine once, and suddenly it just stopped working. I am going to return it and keep looking. I would not recommend this metronome for the second that it won't tick.

Good metronome, poor Display

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is a very nice metronome with a pleasant-sounding clicking noise. However, the display is pretty cheap, making the swinging pendulum look more like a fan. Basically, at low bpm 2 of the pendulum bars are always lit up because it takes a long time for the previous one to turn off. At high bpm, it's worse. Still Recommend.

Korg MA-30

By IGLbw-hh7

from SYRACUSE, NY

Korg MA-30 metronome: Easy to use, sufficient volume. Display is OK. Slightly annoying click. You can get rid of tones which is good. The batteries were easier to install than the battery on the Hubble space telescope, but only slightly.
