Best Value

Korg TM-40 – #1 Seller on Amazon.com

For less the $24 this metronome/tuner combo is the best value on the market in our opinion. It’s a full featured metronome that offers many beat modes and subdivisions. It has a tap feature, for finding tempos by ear. The tuner can be calibrated from 410~480, and also offers a pitch reference mode.

Boss DB90 Dr. Beat Metronome

This is the flagship metronome from Boss. One of the most feature rich metronomes on the market. At $143.00 it’s not cheap, but if you are in the market for an incredibly full featured and easy to use metronome this may be your best bet. Because of it’s size(size of a medium hardback novel), this metronome is not the most portable option. The DB90 offers easy access to subdivision which are controlled by the sliders on the face of this metronome. You can save different settings and even volume levels of subdivisions to presets. Tempo is controlled easily with the turn dial.

Korg OT-120 Wide 8 Octave Chromatic Orchestral Tuner


This is a more heavy duty, professional orchestral tuner from Korg. One of the most feature rich metronomes on the market. It’s very heavy duty, but still small enough to fit in most cases. One of it’s most unique features is a sound back mode, in which the tuner listens to what note you are playing and then play that note back to you as a reference pitch.
