A metronome being something I spend a lot of time with, I consciously sought out one that really works for me.
And I chose this one for the sole reason: being able to dial the tempo.
It’s just so simple and intuitive. I hate those metronomes that have a digital display of beats, with up and down buttons to change tempo. I find that I have no patience for pushing those buttons and waiting for the machine to adjust the tempo. A dial is so much more intuitive, you just grab and rotate. I don’t need to zoom in on the exact beats-per-minute, I just need to get to a ballpark tempo so I can practice with it.
I like this Sabine because it’s just simple. I seldom use it for anything other than just generating simple beats. No frills, no distractions. That’s what I’m looking for in a metronome.
