Available in a range of colors, the Korg KDM-3 Digital Metronome doesn’t have a swinging arm, but its traditional shape and onboard display lets players use sight and sound to find their groove. Beats per minute can be set between 30 and 252 either manually or using the tap tempo feature. Users can choose among eight metronome sounds or play along with 19 onboard patterns. Korg says the onboard speaker is strong enough to fill a practice room, while the 1/8″ headphone jack doubles as a line out that can feed a sound system for group rehearsals.
