My metronome on my phone is much louder than any stand-alone metronome I've ever had

Yes! Hook it up to a Long Ranger system and practice your scales and arpeggios on the field! :-)

<I would agree that my iPhone app is far louder than any digital or mechanical metronomes I have ever used. But even then I use a Bose iPhone speaker system. (Wired, not Bluetooth. I got it in like 2008.)>

Hey, it works in a desktop browser, too. In the search window type "metronome" and you get this:

In and of itself, it is not that loud, but if you are in a bind this works well enough. I imagine that if I ran this through my iMac's external Bose speakers that it would be QUITE loud.

I had no idea that Google have something like, always when I used Google I had to go on some pages- weird O.o

I forgot to write that I was asking about "mobile" small metronome which one I can take with me while I'm going somewhere out of home or practice room

I don't know what the big deal is, here...??

I just plug my DrBeat into my ol' 1970's Woodson PA.

I only have to turn it up to about 2. :P

Loudest metronome? Dunno. However, even though I'm very hard of hearing, I get by nicely with my inexpensive Seiko SQ44 even when practicing FFF passages on my bass trombone and my tuba. The clicker on the Seiko is very loud. It also has an earphone jack.

My Korg KDM-2 is plenty loud.

On the other hand my phone is more often nearby with juice in the battery.

I have a rather nice stereo in my studio. I plug my Dr Beat into it and turn it to about 20 out of 100. I also have a portable PA speaker that I occasionally use when out of the studio.

I"ve always liked the Korg KDM2 [/url]http://www.hickeys.com/search/products/sku057452.php[/url] which has a great loud sound, is easy to use with one hand and can also handle an earpiece if desired. We still have a few in stock at Hickey's.

We're also pretty excited about the replacement - new Korg KDM3 which is the updated version of the KDM2. It is smaller, sounds great and can also be manipulated easily with one hand. We've got this in stock now - just not yet on the website.

We're waiting for delivery on the new Korg IE1M Metronome, In-Ear metronome - has anyone tried this yet?

I've spent a lot of my metronome time without actually playing the horn. "Air and valves", as they call it, is good for figuring out breathing and phrasing, which is a good portion of how a player gets out of tempo. And, without the extra noise of playing, it's a lot easier to hear the metronome.

Yesterday I used the online metronome on the laptop, output to the Presonus interface and to the PA system. However loud it needs to be, it can be now.
