Work on your timing and rhythm with this loud and easy to read Snark Metronome.
This new Snark metronome works great for banjo. It's low priced, has a lot of features and fits in your case too.
I know a lot of people might think using their Iphone or Smart phone as a metronome is wise but I'd rather knock over something made of hard plastic then my expensive phone. Handling an Iphone with picks on is not easy, not only that, maybe turning off the phone when you practice isn't such a bad idea too.
This Snark metronome has some great features too like six sounds which include wood block which is my favorite. Also cowbell, (I could use a little more cowbell and..... are you kidding me, Dog Bark? I wont be using that one, might chase away a stray cat with that sound but not keeping time with it. I'm already trying to reason with you that metronomes are EXTREMELY helpful to your banjo playing and not annoying, no one needs a dog bark to send them away from metronomes for ever!
