Here's what's WRONG about this metronome. 1) there is no volume control, so you hear a constant LOUD BLIP everytime. So while practicing by yourself, you'll soon become irritated at listening to the horribly loud sound that you just will simply turn it off. 2) the headset jack is also set on loud, so if you put headsets into the jack, they will be beeping at maximum sound; making it so u can put the headset on the floor and still hear it from 10 feet away. (not lying) 3) It's bulky and impracticle to carry in a clarinet case or flute case. 4) no volume control 5) Since this is an old model, the newer cheaper models can go in increments of 1 instead of increments of 4's. Further reason not to buy this bulky product. (go for the cheaper electronic ones) Good things about it 1) multifunction comes in handy, but it doesn't cover the bases like the 150 dollar metronomes.
