I've been looking for a different one as well, and this struck me as a good idea. Anybody currently use?

Do you own a laptop ? or a computer near your kit ?

Download the Amazing Metronome

http://www.sheetmusicnow.com/tools/metronome.exe

For your budget there's the Qwik Time metronome which are affordable http://www.metronomes.net/QtMainPage.htm

You can keep saving and order the TAMA Rhythm Watch RW105, excellent metronome for it's price.

I use a Metrognome as well. It's not very loud and limited in the tempos it can play, but it's very discreet and easy to use.

I also have a Tama Rhythm Watch. I recommend it highly.

Although I realize that sometimes a metronome can seem expensive, and that a person might have to wait a bit longer to save for a good one, (as opposed to getting something right away to begin with).. I would still say save your money and get the best you can..

A metronome is often one of the most overlooked pieces of gear that ANY musician should have.. Buying a good one is worth the wait, and will pay for itself in spades down the road..

Peace!

Yep.... The 105 has 35 to 250 bpm, a beat setting from 0 to 9, seperate volume settings for quarter, eigth, sixteenth, triplet, and master notes, 29 programmable settings, remote switch, earphone jack, tap function, 9 volt internal battery or external power source.

It's great little unit that works well live or at practice.

Peace!

It is an amazing piece of equipment that will help you become a better drummer. Please, for the sake of music, save up and get this metronome.

I second that. I got a Rhythm Watch for Christmas and my bandmates have noticed I have become steadier. It's worth the investment.

You too ! I've bought mine with my Christmas money I received. I thought that my time was good, I found out that I was out of time very often :-(
