The Bodybeat BB-1 is an electronic metronome which vibrates to translate time instead of clicking or beeping. Neurological research supports this new vibration design. It allows musicians to focus on correct timing for their music by triggering tactile impulses to the body instead of the simple audio/visual cues used by standard metronomes. The BB-1 can also be used as a standard metronome, however, by using the audio speaker or headphone jack. As a beginning guitarist, working with the audible click tends to distract from the learning process. This is where the Bodybeat BB-1 differs from the competition. With the Bodybeat BB-1 musicians feel the pulse of every beat. The vibrations are similar to those of a phone or video game controller. By allowing musicians to internalize the beat instead of intellectualize it, this great tool allows one to subdivide beats and further enhance rhythmic configurations.

Pros:

  • It’s small and compact, making for easy transportation.
  • It offers a vibration instead of a clicking or beeping.
  • You can internalize the accent as well as the subdivisions.
  • All musicians can use it

Cons:

  • It’s expensive.
  • It has a light plastic build that isn’t durable with a cable equally lacking in quality.
  • There is nothing to keep it protected like a case so as to stay protected from drum keys, tuners, or a musical instrument.
  • You can’t play the click and the pulse at the same time, integrating ears with the internal rhythm.
  • Overall: While it has less rhythmic patterns available such as a quarter notes as well as an eighth note in a triplet group, the Bodybeat BB-1 is available for all musicians and contains the ability to switch from vibration to clicking with an A440 reference tone.
