The MA-1, a compact card-type electronic metronome, has been further improved. The MA-2 is an indispensable unit for rhythm training, and solidly covers the functions of a metronome. In addition to basic functionality such a wide tempo range and a generous number of beats and rhythm patterns, it also provides user-friendly features including an improved display, a loud, crisp sound, and additional functions such as a newly provided “timer mode.” Choose from two different vivid and stylish color schemes for the body: blue and black, or a black and red.
The MA-2 is equipped with a newly designed electronic buzzer. It’s more powerful, providing easily audible sound that won’t be buried by high-volume instruments or high frequencies.
You can choose from three different methods of setting the tempo: pendulum step lets you specify a numeric value just as on a mechanical metronome, full step lets you specify the tempo in one-step increments, and tap tempo lets you specify the tempo by pressing a button in time with the song you’re playing. You can also combine a time signature of between 0–9 beats with eight types of rhythm, supporting many types of musical practicing.
The folding stand lets the metronome stand on its own in an easily visible location. The sliding battery cover is designed as one piece with the main unit, so there’s no danger of the cover being lost when you replace the batteries.
When using alkaline batteries, the unit provides approximately 400 hours of continuous operation. As the remaining battery power runs low, a battery indicator appears in the display, making it clear when the batteries need to be replaced. Even for extended practicing sessions, you can concentrate on your performance without worrying about battery life.
