Wittner Model 814 Solid Wood Metronome - Genuine Walnut Wood - High-Gloss Finish - With Adjustable Bell Chime (Not Pictured)

A beautiful, precision, pyramid-style, wooden metronome from Wittner. Solid, genuine walnut wood exterior (not veneer or laminate). 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. What is the difference between the Genuine Walnut model 814 and the standard Walnut model 813?
A. This Genuine Walnut model is made from the wood of a Walnut tree. The standard Walnut model 813 is made from solid Alder or Poplar wood and given a Walnut stain. Both are solid wood, not laminate.

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 Outstanding customer service December 27, 2018
Reviewer: Sandye Fletcher from Columbus, TX United States  
I called Fisher Violins after spending hours trying online to get info on metronomes. After much stress and confusing info I decided to call knowing it was Saturday and I might get no one but took a chance.  Jim answered and was so helpful, answered all questions and gave me excellent info on what to look for and what is important to look for in a metrinome. For a non musical person, this was so helpful.  Ordered online after my conversation. Shipping was quick and it was just what my husband wanted. Thanks

5 of 5 110% Satisfied! August 28, 2016
Reviewer: Gwen Tan from San DIego, CA United States  
I wish there was more I can say than being fully satisfied. I was so glad that Fisher Violins had the metronome I wanted. The genuine walnut was pricey but is well worth it. All the questions I asked were answered promptly and from there I knew that I was to purchase my first metronome from them. It is such a beautiful piece that I hope to someday pass on to my grandchildren.  I highly recommend Fisher Violins.
Thank you so much.

5 of 5 Wittner #814 March 5, 2016
Reviewer: Theodore Koundourakis from Astoria, NY United States  
Thank you for having my metronomes in stock! That tells me that you represent the best of the best! I actually emailed the Wittner Company in Germany and one of the family members contacted me and told me how to find the models I wanted. Thanks to the Internet I found the Fisher Violin Company! The metronomes are both beautiful, thank you again! I will recommend your company to all my musician friends! Ted K.
