Default Where's a good place to look for an electronic metronome?

I'm looking for a good electonic metronome - one with lots of practical features.

Any suggestions?

It's not cheap (~$100) but I think that the Tama Rhythm Watch is the best metronome out there. You can set it from 35 bpm to 240 bpm w/quarter notes, eighth notes, sixteenth notes, or eighth note triplets, at multiple time signatures. It has a tap function where you can "tap in" quarter notes to figure out how many bpms a given song is at. I use mine everyday and there's never been a practice where I've thought "If only my metronome could do blah blah blah". I highly endorse this product.

Thanks guys!

I was just looking at the Tama Rhythm Watch just before I can back on the forum. It looks like what I'm after.

I use the Rhythm Watch myself and love it.. all of the features listed before this post and one more that makes my life EASY when playing live, You can program up to 30, (I think) setups in it and go from one to the next with just a touch of a button..

I use one live, mostly to get the tempo just prior to starting a song, (but sometimes throughout), and when it gets close to the end of one song, I step up to the next setup, and then when the song I am playing ends, I hit the go button and I'm ready for the next song...

You can plug it into the fallback, (monitor) system or just use earbuds in smaller places..

It is an absolutely essential piece of gear.

I took a cheapo clamp/cymbal boom and attached it to my hihat, added a "L" bracket that I picked up from a local hardware store and a small length of velcro and it is placed perfectly for me... If you want, I can post a pic of the setup..

Cheers!

I have to say the metronome function is one of the best reasons to own Roland V-drums.

I know this is not what you are looking for but if you ever get the chance to sit down to a Roland kit mess around with the metronome function. It will blow your mind,

I want to buy some level of Roland V-Drums some day - hopefully sooner than later. I've never tried the metrophone function on them, but I have played around on a few models - I like em!

Does the newer version of the Rhythm Watch let you do odd times? The manual says you can, just wanna make sure.

You can set the bar length from 1/4 to 9/4, but that's about it. Compound meters are not possible.

Compound meters? I'm confused. I just meant 3/4, 5/4, 6/4 and 7/4. I especially like 7/4.

Ebay. Has anyone else noticed that most of the metronomes are getting to be too complex? The Boss DB12 is a very hard metronome to beat as far as ease of use and flexibility.
