I've done it... I've dropped my metronome on a tile floor and now it only ticks a ppp. Luckily it was a $20 Witmer (sp?) What does everyone recommend that has a louder than most "tick" ??? I've heard the Dr. Beat are nice... but which one? I've noticed that Franz no longer makes the electric box... or at least no one seems to have it for sale. I had one years ago and lost it during my non-playing days. Thanks!
