Comments about Simmons SDPC1 Pro Click Metronome:
Lame design! It has a lot of nifty features but the thought that went into this is a joke! It has a huge dial dedicated to a timer (which I never use) which can be easily and accidently engaged. While making adjustments to settings, I would touch the dial without even knowing it thus setting the timer. I'd start practicing and the unit would turn off cause the timer was set without me knowing it. Seems the master volume would be better suited for all that real estate!
Also the programs ONLY remember tempo's, NOT rhythms. You can store a program then move on to using other settings, then when you go back to that program, you have to manually make sure ALL the settings for that program are correct, or your program will be all wrong except for the tempo. It's a shame because you can set up some really cool rhythms but unfortunately, they can't be remembered. I'm sending mine back.
