It's nothing more than a timing device, get whatever is cheap.
digital metronomes can usually be set to any tempo. mechanical ones usually go up in notches.
you can also change the volume on digital metronomes.
there is something about old large mechanical metronomes though.
Of you play guitar somewhere near a PC, there are plenty of metronomes to be found online.
Get one... Even if it's one of those old mechanical ones, it'll improve your playing 10-fold. End of story.
Totally agree, I find that just the visual aspect of watching that thing swing back and forth get;s me moving my body around and "locking into the beat" more then with the digital kinds. Sadly you can;t do the complex beats that even my crummy old "digital" one can do...
I have a Wittner model 836. It's simple and effective. I like it!
I use drum loops instead of metronome but when I need to use standard metronome, I use the one built in my keyboard...

I have a simple electronic metronome that can make a click, or flash a red LED, or both. I enjoy playing to backing tracks more. There is something so sterile about the metronome. It is good however to use it, to improve your timing.
I use one about half the time I play I use it mostly for rythym guitar. I know lead work so well i don't really need one for it.
I use a free online metronome, but prefer my basic drum machine.
thanks for your posts. very informative and appreciated
I mainly use a free one on my smartphone, or the metronome on my electronic keybard. Also sometimes I play to a drum machine on my computer. Personally I think I benefit from bth metronome and drum beat practice, it seems they teach my brain slightly dfferent things.
that makes sense. one is mechanical and one is rhythmic.
thanks for your input
