OVERVIEW

Quartz Metronome with sound or light beat indication.

Easy to use, the Wittner MT50 metronome prominently features a tempo dial that adjusts between 40 to 208 beats per minute. The MT50's speaker produces a loud "tick" sound, which is easier to hear in context than the "beep" produced by most other electronic metronomes. The MT50 also has a flashing LED beat indicator, which can be used for silent practice or along with the speaker for added visual reference.

The MT50 also generates an A=440 reference tone for tuning. A built-in wire stand allows convenient upright positioning. Earphone included.

Uses one 9V battery (not Included).

FEATURES
  • Tempo Range: 40 to 280 Beats/Minute
  • Beat Indication: Click Sound and/or Light
  • Standard pitch reference tone: A = 440Hz
  • Earphone included
  • Black
SPECIFICATIONS
  • Dimensions: 3 " x 2 " x 1"
  • Battery powered: Uses one 9V battery (not Included).

Bought this model based on salesperson recommendation that it can be clearly heard while playing; I agree. Stand places it close to a 45 degree angle. The silent mode and A440 tuner can come in handy. The sound of the click is more like one of those wooden metronomes with the pendulum arm, not a high pitched electronic beep. Since it has an earphone jack it can be plugged into an amp if needed. I like its use of a 9V battery since they are less likely to leak if not used for a long time. Owned about 10-15 years. I'm glad I bought this one.

The volume is too loud - wears out my ears - though should be great for duo and trio rehearsals - and for short periods. For solo practice, I muffle it by putting it behind a book and that works ok. If you want loud, this one's good! But volume is not adjustable, so I prefer the Seiko.

Great metronome!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Wittner MT50 Metronome:

This metronome may not be fancy, but it is the best I've found. It is loud enough to hear while you're playing, but it is not high and obnoxious (like so many others). I seem to drop it constantly, yet it continues to work. I don't think I've ever had to replace the battery and I've had it for at least 5 years!

Love it except 2 things...

By Johnny Guitar

from Sacramento, CA

See all my reviews

Comments about Wittner MT50 Metronome:

This would be the perfect metronome if it had two more things: a volume control, and a selection of diferent click-tones.

I love the rotary dial, it is much much much more convenient than ANY digital metronome. For proper use of a metronome, you want to practice and "ladder up" in speed just a few BPM faster at a time. This is PERFECT for that.

It's loud enough to play against, but a little too loud sometimes. volume control please.

The sound of the click is bit like a wood block. But I wish there were selectable tones.

      Comments about Wittner MT50 Metronome:

      Wow, I was just browsing the metronomes and saw this unit that I've owned for over 20 years. Yeah, I've dropped it and all kinds of things. The sound isn't terrible loud, so I usually run it through an amp, which works.

        Comments about Wittner MT50 Metronome:

        Very simple to operate, reliable, and durable. Tick sound is pleasant and moderately loud. Timing increments and range are the exact same as the traditional pendulum wind-up Wittner metronome. If you are used to that one this is a great portable alternative, with no winding and no surface requirements. Uses a 9v battery, not included. Size is similar to a pack of cards but slightly thicker.

          Started taking lessons on guitar and this metronome works great for me. I do not like the metronomes that produce a digital/electronic tone which were sold at our local music stores. My ear responded better to the tradtional "tick tock" sound. Love the small size and kick-out stand, produces a loud sound and nice quality.

            I saw someone on YouTube using this metronome on a "lessons" video. The metronome was not even mentioned, just used. When I went shopping on MF for a Metronome, I selected this one based on those 20 minutes of actual use that were taped. I'm glad I did. Very happy with it.

              Comments about Wittner MT50 Metronome:

              I grew up with the classic wooden obelisk made from mahogany. Although I still have that, it now goes "tick....tock-tick..." Not good for keeping a steady beat. When I found the Wittner MT-50, I was finally satisfied. Having used the electronic, credit-card-sized metronomes (which were serviceable for the time), I had no hope of finding a pleasant-sounding metronome in these days and at this price. I now use it exclusively for my own practice, and recommend it to all of my piano students.

                    Actually bought this for my husband who is hard of hearing as someone mentioned that it was a little loud - but even my husband thought the same. Would be great if it had a volume adjustment but I suppose for the price that would not be so. Otherwise works great!!
