Metronome - TICK TICK TICK! – Pyramid Mechanical Metronome Reviews

posted by Deezee on 04/06/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Very good price for metronome, shopped a lot of places and these are hard to get at a reasonable price. - Does not need batteries, other DX models are electronic. - Good TICK TICK TICK sound when pendulum goes back and forth.
Cons:
- Kind of plasticy. - The pendulum came off during shipment but it was easy enough to put back together (even though the instructions says not to open it up), the bottom opens easily and I tightened the screw that held the pendulum pivot holder. - Pendulum feels kind of cheap and might be a bit fragile as it can be bent quite easily.
Other:
The pendulum weight is made of lead (?). Hope it doesn't leak and cause lead poisoning, haha.
Bottomline:
Wanted to get a simple metronome to use for the kids to use when they practice their music lessons. This one is a fairly well made and reasonably priced but the shell is somewhat plasticy.
