Metronomes & Apps For Bodhran Practice

by MichelleStewart on February 20, 2014

I often get asked what metronome I use so here’s a little run down.

My favourite metronome has always been the Korg MA-30

(The blue one I’ve used in some of my YouTube videos).

However, I’ve recently discovered the Tempo Metronome App (by Frozen Ape) which is pictured below.
It’s now my new favourite metronome app because it lets you choose the time signature and offers lots of subdivision of the note options.

If you’re looking for metronomes with ‘Tap’ Functions To Figure Out Beats Per Minute here a few others:

Steinway & Sons Metronome App

Pro Metronome App
https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/pro-metronome-beat-sound-light/id477960671?mt=8

Metronome TS App
https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/metronome-ts/id286847782?mt=8

If you’re a drummer and not already using a metronome as part of your regular practice I would highly recommend doing so.

If you don’t already have a metronome I hope this info helps you find the right one for you.

I bought a used Korg -MA30 for $19.00 on Amazon. Looks like new.
