      It's hard to set and the MM speed doesn't clearly show. But not bad enough to return.

        Comments about Qwik Time QT-3 Quartz Metronome:

        The Qwik-Time QT-3 metronome/ tuner seems to be one of the loudest A devices that a small amount of money can buy. It is sufficient to tune a small group. I thought my old one bit the dust, finally, but; as in the past- what is needed is a rubber band or a hair elastic around the " Belly" to keep somethng connceted so the speaker will work. I thought it was only a new battery needed, but it needed a new battery and a new hair tie! The old one has MANY years and " miles" on it and is still workable. The new one seems to be the same quality and does not yet need any TLC.
        The metronome does not do any " tricks" except you can have light and sound or light only. No subdivisions or meters or anything fancy; but simple and reliable click.

        Seems to be working well for my Gr 4 Student as an intro to learning how to practice with a metronome; I like it a lot.

        Reliable little thing

        By Asjh89

        from San Diego, CA

        Comments about Qwik Time QT-3 Quartz Metronome:

        This is a great metronome, nice and simple. Give you the beat and thats all you need. Volume control would be nice for drummers sake, but I guess you can use the line out for some computer speakers and get it a little louder... I wouldn't recommend it for drummers.For guitar, piano, etc. its great, everyone I know uses it - short and sweet.

        Bad Metronome

        Comments about Qwik Time QT-3 Quartz Metronome:

        The earphone jack only plays through the left ear on mine. As others have said, lack of volume control. Wish I woulda shelled out a little more money for something slightly better. It's not really loud enough to use with drums either.

        Comments about Qwik Time QT-3 Quartz Metronome:

        I teach guitar and bass and do 2 shows daily, plus play in 2 or 3 bands after the shows. I like this metronome for the ability to find any tempo, and the sound of the click. It's very hard to use for locking in with a tune to find the tempo, so I use my sequencer for that. But just for basic use, I like it and recommend it to my students. I've had it for years and have beaten the literal crap out of it, but it stills works great and still has the first battery I ever put in it.

        A Metronome that doesn't keep time

        By I've got no time

        from Albuquerque NM

        Comments about Qwik Time QT-3 Quartz Metronome:

        The metronome will keeping incrementing up in beats per minute all by itself. Absolutely frustrating to have a metronome that cant keep time. You're practicing and all of the sudden the device skips a beats and you look up to see that it is now on a faster rate. You rolls your eyes and adjust to the new tempo and a minute later is does it again. (makes you want to pull a "The Who" maneuver by swinging and smashing the little thing with your guitar. Spend an extra $5 to $10 dollars if you are looking for an entry level metronome, because you may end up buying another one anyway.

        Comments about Qwik Time QT-3 Quartz Metronome:

        I do not recommend this metronome, it is hardly useful it doesn't have any rhythms and the click is hard to hear when your playing without silence pads. I recommend to go with a higher price metronome that plays 8th notes, 16th notes, triplets and all the good stuff.

        Resets every time you turn it off

        By Darrell Partin

        from Washington DC

        Comments about Qwik Time QT-3 Quartz Metronome:

        The only drawback to an otherwise solid product, the beat resets to 100 bpm EVERY time you turns the sucker off. While this may not sound like a big deal, it's amazingly convenient to have a metronome that you can turn off when you take a break, come back to and be able to turn back on to the same setting you left it at. Even more annoying is when you turn the sucker off ACCIDENTALLY when switching between having the beat on and muted and have to sit there and rescroll up to 180 bpm. Try having this happen 6 times in a practice session and you will be pulling your hair out.

        Does not retain settings when powered off.

        By MadBagpiper

        from San Diego, CA

        Comments about Qwik Time QT-3 Quartz Metronome:

        I completely dissagree with the recommendation for this metronome by Musicians Friend, as well as the user ratings it has received. I would be interested to learn why it was given such high numbers, but no-one has yet left a review. This is a cheap, no-frills metronome. My biggest problem with it (unless they have released a new model, since I purchased mine) is that when you power it off, it does not retain your tempo setting. Instead, it resets to 100 bpm when you turn it back on. When I am learning new tunes, I'd like to be able to stop the metronome, make some notations, and start it again - at the same tempo. I am in search of a new metronome precisely to remedy this problem, which I find very frustrating and annoying. I would definitely not recommend it.
