Wittner Model 811MK Solid Wood Metronome - Cherry Stain - Matte Finish - With Adjustable Bell Chime (Not Pictured)

A beautiful, precision, pyramid-style, wooden metronome from Wittner. Solid wood exterior (not veneer or laminate) with cherry stain. Bell can be set to chime every 2, 3, 4, or 6 beats, or can be turned off. An extraordinarily handsome and reliable machine. A gorgeous addition to any music studio.

Q. I can't find the key to wind my metronome.
A. The key is stored on the bottom of the metronome for safety in shipping. Simply pull it from the storage slot and install. Replacement keys and pendulum weights are available to order.

Q. How do I wind my metronome?
A. Locate the key on the bottom of the metronome. Place in the hole on the side of the metronome and turn clockwise to thread it onto the metal shaft. When installing for the first time, you may find that you need to wiggle the key a bit, or adjust the angle, in order to get the key properly situated and onto the threaded shaft. Once the key is installed, simply turn clockwise until the metronome is fully wound

Q. How do I adjust the tempo on my metronome?
A. A small weight is attached to the pendulum (located at the very bottom of the pendulum when initially shipped). Simply adjust its position, up or down, to the desired speed.

Q. How do I turn on/adjust the bell?
A. The metal bell adjustment mechanism (not pictured) is located immediately above the winding key, on the right side of the metronome. When pushed in, the bell will not chime, though it is normal to hear a very faint, muffled, tap on the bell. (If this very faint sound is not desired, we recommend purchasing a model without the bell mechanism). Pull the mechanism out to set the bell chime to every 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 6th beat, according to the meter of the music being played.

Q. Can I leave the metronome wound, or do I need to let it unwind completely each time?
A. When putting the metronome into storage, Wittner recommends allowing the spring to completely unwind. However, the spring is designed to hold tension for long periods of time without ill effect. Under normal circumstances, with occasional use, the metronome may be left wound, or partially wound between practice sessions.

5 of 5 the hunt for the perfect metronome December 19, 2020
Reviewer: Hannah MacLaren from Altadena, CA United States  
This is a gift to a friend who has just taken possession of a restored Steinway upright, c. 1890s, that had been in her family for generations. It was painted a deep blue. The restorer had been asked to redo the pads and the medal strings, but had become so fascinated with this instrument that he did a complete restoration. Thus is deserved an exceptional metronome. I'd hunted on the internet for several days until finding J.S. Fisher, with a most comprehensive array of metronomes, including the perfect one, cherry wood. I called and talked with them about what I wanted, the story of the piano. And they were encouraging, took my order, explained the delivery process. A most gracious and thoughtful experience. If I were younger....their instruments beckon.
