Terrific for solo or full band practice!

Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

I used the DB-88 for many years nearly every day with my bands until the DB-90 came out. The DB-90 has even more great features, but it's basically just a great, solidly built, metronome. One reviewer wrote about the failure of the built-in stand, but I never use it anyway and don't need it. Another reviewer wrote about the annoying accent, but if you don't want that, just turn it down or off. If you have a piece with multi-meter and/or tempo changes, this is one fantastic tool! You can program an entire song with up to 50 changes. The reference tone with multi-octave range is a nice feature as well. It's great for concert, marching, or jazz!

Terrific, but Fatally Flawed

Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

This is a terrific metronome for serious rehearsal. I particularly like the flexible subdivision and variety of rhythm patterns. The volume control is excellent and the controls are logical and easy to use. However, the built-in, folding table stand is flimsy beyond belief. It was barely usable out of the box and failed completely in seven months, making the metronome essentially unusable without making a stand of some kind. I would not recommend this unless it is to be firmly mounted on a solid support (a mounting post and threaded collar are included for this).

Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

I use this metronome every day. It helps tremendously with everything. If you are anywhere near serious about getting good you need a good metronome, and this one is it.

Amazing for loud marching bands

Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

When I used this in corps we could hear the drumlines Dr. Beat over our own in the hornline. Used best with high school marching bands that are very powerful but get off beat. Drumlines respond and perform better when rehearsed with Dr. Beat.

Comments about Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat Metronome:

Overall great metronome. Does the basic and same functions as the Beat 88. I love the great different drum program beats it supplies but since I use it mostly for marching its really useless for me. The accent is very annoying when using it as a regular metronome. But it's just as valuable as the 88. I use it most everyday. Worth the money.
