Metronomes For Sale to Good Homes Friday, March 28, 2014

Ah, the metronome!  The little tyrant, the little boss.  It ticks or beeps to keep us in time (or in line?).  It helps us count correctly, to sort out rhythms.  Ultimately, it helps us play better and more accurately.  Early in our studies, we acquire a metronome.  Thus begins the love/hate relationship with a mechanical device.  Our two best sellers here at Stanton’s are the Matrix MR500, which clicks and has a little red light, and the Wittner  MT40, which is digital and beeps.  The third best seller is the Korg TM50, which is both a digital metronome and a tuner.  (The tuning function doubles the “tyrant” value.)   The tuning function on the TM50 is great.  It plays pitches over 3+ octaves, and can tune accurately for about 5 octaves. It works well for strings and winds alike.   So, do you own one of these devices?  We have them!  For more about these or other metronomes, call us at 1800-42-MUSIC, email us at, or visit our website,  Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
