A powerful timepiece with a wide range of sounds and tempos.
The Simmons SDPC1 Pro Click Metronome is a powerful rhythm producer, capable of creating a wide range of sounds and tempos for the professional drummer. The metronome has master volume volume and rhythm knobs, with 2 different preset sounds as well as a third metronome voice that gives you a choice of 10 various sounds.
The Simmons metronome features two LED lights, flashing green for beats and red for accents. The metronome can be started by clicks or by voice. An internal timer can be set for up to 90 minutes. When time has expired, the LED turns red and the speaker will beep for one minute. The metronome may be started and stopped remotely using an optional (sold separately) remote footswitch. A line out jack allows connection to an amplifier.
The tap tempo function allows you to tap in the tempo, with the LED providing visual feedback. Tempo may be set from 30-280 beats per minute. The variation function sets up to four sections of rhythm variation, freeing up the beat, tempo, and bars in each section. A sequence demo is included. You may create and store your own rhythm by setting a beat, tempo, and timbre.

Comments about Simmons SDPC1 Pro Click Metronome:
I've had this metronome for about 2 weeks now and it has been a great tool for practicing my drums. I bought this on sale at a Guitar Center for $20 less than the Tama Rhythm Watch. It seems pretty obvious, when you look at the 2 metronomes side by side, they come from the same factory (somewhere in China). The only real differences are color and that the Simmons has a few more options than the Tama. Both have more options than most people would use but drummers will be able to take advantage of most of the features. The arm and clamp made for the Tama Rhythm Watch fit this unit perfectly if you're looking for a way to mount this onto a cymbal stand which is a really good idea so you can have it within reach while you play. The Simmons has a timer setting that will shut it off automatically to save batteries if you accidentally forget to shut it off. I don't think the Tama has that feature. Neither unit seems to be built very hardy may not take too much rough handling so I plan on treating mine with extra care. The pouch for the Tama is a nice option but not worth the $20 dollars I saved buying this one on sale. I hope this metronome will last for a while but it's nice to know I didn't spend a lot on it if it does go down fairly early. They both have the same sound settings and both are plenty loud enough to hear over the drums as you play. They both have the capability to use a DC adapter but neither comes with one. They both will take a remote but again neither comes with it. They also both can be listened to by headphones or earphones also not included. I think the Simmons gives a little more for the money and if you can get it on sale, it's a no-brainer. Still waiting to see how durable it will be but for now I say good tool that does what it should loud and well. I recommend it for now and will see how it holds up.
