Wittner Model 806 Solid Wood Metronome - Black - High-Gloss Finish - No Bell

A beautiful, precision, pyramid-style, wooden metronome from Wittner. Solid wood exterior (not veneer or laminate) with black, high-gloss finish. An extraordinarily handsome and reliable machine. A gorgeous addition to any music studio. Hand-crafted in Germany.



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. 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.

Q. Does Wittner use all metal parts?
A. No.  Under the solid wood exterior, Wittner uses a combination of metal and high-desnity, high-quality, composite gears and mechanical parts.  Metal expands and contracts with changing temperatures.  So, to ensure accuracy, certain working parts must be made of composite.  Where strength is required, as in the plate that holds the mechenasim to the solid-wood housing, metal is used.  The base, the black background behind the pendulum, and the feet are also composite.
