OVERVIEW

Practice effectively with quality sounds, varied drum patterns, and learning tools.

The Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome features Rhythm Coach functions with an onboard microphone, a reference-tone function for tuning, an instrument input, MIDI input, and other handy tools.

The Boss DB-90's note mixing function allows you to instantly create a variety of beats by adjusting the levels of 5 different note values. Front-panel sliders, buttons, and a large rotary dial provide instant, hands-on access to edit parameters. Select 4 different click sounds, plus a human voice-counting sound that will help you know your place in the bar. The DB-90 is also equipped with realistic PCM drum patterns, for developing your accuracy and rhythmic feel effectively.

Plug Into Rhythm Coach

Rhythm coach has 4 training modes to help build your accuracy, speed, and endurance. With the Boss DB-90's microphone, you can use the Rhythm Coach functions with acoustic drums or plug a Roland V-Pad into the trigger input. Play along and chart your progress.

Many Uses

Drummers can connect to the DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome via Roland V-Pads or the internal microphone. Guitarists and bassists can directly plug into the DB-90 without any other gear required and monitor via connected headphones. And for those who wish to sync to an external sequencer for more elaborate accompaniment, they can do so with the DB-90 metronome's MIDI input. This stage-oriented feature of the Boss Dr. Beat Metronome is especially useful for drummers.

FEATURES
  • Trigger input to access unique Rhythm Coach exercises
  • MIDI in for syncing to external sequencer tempos
  • PCM sounds with drum machine-style patterns
  • 50 memories

This is absolutely the best metronome on the market. People said earlier that you can't keep the light on when it says clearly in the instructions to press and hold light and power at the same time and it will remain on. The built in coach feature is great for warmups. I love the memory settings because during high school I had drumline, jazz band, show choir, and my other bands songs all programmed into it with space for more. The bad thing was when the battery died all my tempos were gone and it was a pain to redo them all.

Bought this and returned it the next day. It's got fantastic features, and the memory is ample (I think there are 50 spots to save "songs" and it's easy to plug a pedal in to switch between them). The problem? After you've spent 45 mins programming in all your songs (yes it takes that long even when you get good at it), any time the unit loses power even for a second, like when switching batteries, it loses everything in it's memory. Even worse, it loses all it's memory when you have fully charged batteries inside and you plug in the AC adapter! Unbelievable.

How to retain the memory on DB 90 when changing battery

Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

To prevent memory loss, purchase the power adaptor, plug it into the mains power, turn it on----then plug it into the DB 90, you can now remove and replace the 9 volt internal battery without losing the memory.
Make sure you turn the mains power on first, if you don't the inserting of the plug will disconnect the internal battery and memory will be lost. I don't recommend trying this with the flat round disc batteries which are in other different metronomes as arcing could occur

      Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

      This is by far the best metronome I've owned. I don't
      know what more you could expect from a metronome.
      Yes, the light does stay on. Worzit 1 was right,
      "DB90" will become synonymous with "metronome".
      Pay a little extra now, in the end, you'll be glad
      you did.

        This is one of those products that everyone assumes you have because it's the industry standard. Eventually DB-90 will be synonymous with "metronome" just as "Kleenex" is for tissue.

          Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

          Lots of features. The display is VERY small. Many of the key indicators are too small to see quickly. The blinking light is also to dim. I also have the Tama Rhythm watch which has a better display and much easier to use. It does nto have all the features of the Dr-90 but is much more practical for a drummer.

          Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

          Our praise band uses this metronome. As the worship leader, I ask the drummers to please use it. Playing with a metronome makes the band a much tighter band. We find the battery lasts through about two weeks of services. This would be six services and approximately six to eight rehearsals. We use an Aviom system for stage monitoring and have a dedicated line for the metronome. The roller dial is useful for quickly dialing up the next song tempo.

          Not bad but not great

          By 

          from Hawaii

          Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

          This is a decent metronome. Easy to use for a practice tool. The biggest gripe I have is that the battery life is very limited. I cant get over how fast it eats up batteries. Yes you can plug it in to a wall outlet but then it is not as portable and becomes cumbersome.It would have been awesome if there was a built in tuner. A audible tone works but for the price, there should be a built in chromatic tuner too.
