Default Boss DB66 replacement

Well after many, many metronomic miles my old Boss DB66 bit the dust has been put out to pasture.

Impulsively, I almost purchased a DB60 to replace it. I don't have a need for any of the more advanced features of a DB90 plus I don't want to pay $180.00 for a metronome.

Before hitting the purchase button I got to thinking about what I really want in a metronome and the droning DINK-dink-dink-dink (head throbbing) of the old DB66 immediately came to mind.

I want a metronome with more pleasant sounds (cowbell, woodblock, clave). Something that sounds a bit more musical. I like to keep the purchase price in and around $100.00.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

You need an Oompa Loompa. Plus they can sing and dance.

Maybe I can find a barking poodle with perfect time. That would be an improvement.

Watch it. Your band may just end replacing you with the poodle.
