Wittner Model 804M Solid Wood Metronome - Genuine Walnut Wood - Matte Finish - No Bell

A beautiful, precision, pyramid-style, wooden metronome from Wittner. Solid, genuine walnut wood exterior (not veneer or laminate). An extraordinarily handsome and reliable machine. A gorgeous addition to any music studio.

  • 8.5" (216mm) High x 4 5/8" (117mm) Wide at Base 
  • 15.6 oz. (442 grams) 

Q. What is the difference between the Genuine Walnut model 804M and the standard Walnut model 803M?
A. This Genuine Walnut model is made from the wood of a Walnut tree. The standard Walnut model 803M 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. 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.

Absolutely gorgeous metronome

I ordered the model 804 Wittner metronome for my husband for his birthday. I chose it specifically because of the real walnut wood and and Wittner brand. It did not disappoint - it will be a family heirloom. I was very impressed with the customer service of J. S. Fisher. First, I received a personal e-mail from the company owner letting me know that it had shipped. Second, this order arrived earlier than expected - it arrived in time for his birthday, even though I ordered it very late in the game. Third, it was well-packaged to assure it wouldn't be damaged. Fourth, it is just beautiful! Thank you all so much.


Looked on amazon, but found this site and so happy I ordered here. Love the genuine wood metronome...memories of piano lessons as a child, and helps me practice violin now.

Beautiful piece. Looks so elegant and classy. It is a lifetime piece.

Gorgeous genuine walnut metronome

There??s a subtle quality of sound improvement in this excellently made genuine walnut metronome. A bonus is it helps clear my mind into a creative zen place while I??m writing. Rest assured, this is a true investment and NOT overpriced.

Wittner Metronome order

Absolutely flawless transaction. I mistakenly ordered the wrong item, and sent an email requesting to cancel or change the order. JS Fisher IMMEDIATELY cancelled the order, and then the owner called me to ask if I had any questions, and to tell me about the differences in metronomes he carried. After ordering the correct Wittner, (online and after store hours) I received notice the next morning that my purchase was packed and shipped. Arrived in two days. Could not ask for better service. This is the type of business that is becoming increasingly rare: One that places the needs of its customers first. I'm confident J.S. Fisher will earn your return patronage. It certainly has mine.
