DB-30: Dr. Beat

OverviewIt’s portable, reliable, and fun to use — the DB-30 helps musicians take their music to higher levels by offering a set of features that defies its diminutive size. Much more than just a simple timekeeper, this pocket-sized metronome can lay down a variety of rhythm patterns and time feels to practice along with, and it has a few timekeeping tricks up its sleeve as well.     


  • Handles time signatures up to 17 beats per measure
  • Rhythmic beat patterns in various styles
  • Headphone output with volume control


Choose Your Pattern

Pick from a menu of nine rhythm types and 24 beat variations, including combinations of odd-time signatures and clave patterns for practicing Latin rhythms. Who says practice has to be painful? Put some extra spice and groove into your next practice session with the DB-30!


The DB-30 adds value with its smooth-flowing LCD needle for visual tempo assistance, and two bright LED lights that visually assist your practice. Other helpful functions include Tap Tempo for finding the right pulse fast, internal reference tones (12 semitones), Auto Power Off for optimizing battery life, and headphones jack so you won’t miss a beat, even in noisy environments.

A shopper asked: Dear friend, I need it to be rather loud for ensemble practice. Is this the case for the DB-30? Oct 23, 2012

Adam BStaff: Without knowing how large of an ensemble, here are my thoughts. By itself, I do not think this would be loud enough for an ensemble practice. If you have the proper cables and amp, you can plug this into a speaker to get more volume. For most smaller metronomes, they work well for individual practice, if you need to rehearse with an ensemble typically a amplifier is needed. Oct 23, 2012
