Cherub proves once again that not only can it deliver value to music
consumers, it also truly understands what consumer wants. From its compact
design to its enormous array of features, Cherub continues to outpace its
competitions. No other device on the market has so much features built
into it. This device is by far the best value metronome/tuner combo on the market.
The metronome function of this device contains
volume control, beat simulation with Cherub's revolutionary technology for visual sensing of tempo, beat selection, and rhythm
selection. The tuner function of this device comes with a tuner pickup and
contains features such as transposition, # and b mode, and pitch shift.
The device even has a strap hole built into it, like the ones on cameras. You can attach a strap
to the MetroTuner and carry it or hang it.
Metronome Features - Like all Cherub metronomes, the metronome features one of the widest range of
beat and rhythm settings on the market. The beat and rhythm patterns are
highlighted by the
chime and clave sounds. It has 7 beat (time signature) options. This helps to highlight strong beats in the music.
For example, if there are 2 beats in a measure, the first beat will be strong
while the second will be weak.
It has 12 different rhythms including duplet,
triplet, quadruplet. The beat
settings combines with the rhythm settings will fulfill any rhythm requirement
you may have. Perfect for helping students to learn sophisticated rhythm
The metronome also features Cherub's
revolutionary visualization for beat simulation. Unlike a traditional
metronome where the pendulum swings side to side, Cherub's new technology
simulates the ups and downs of the taping motion of a hand while counting beats. This is done
through the LCD display. Additionally, it also simulates a strong beat
with a bigger motion, a medium beat with a lesser motion, and a weak beat with the least amount of motion.
The metronome, though only pocket size, even
comes with volume control. It produce the loudest sound for metronomes in its
class. The volume control allows the metronome to be used even with loud instruments.
Tuner Features - As with all Cherub tuners, this model offers supremely accurate
tuning and fast response time. This tuner combines the best of the 3
technological worlds of digital VU meter, LCD and LED. Digital VU meter offers the most accurate response to tuning, perfect for precise tuning. LED
tuning guides offers the easiest visual tuning indication. And LCD offers
the best readout of tuner operation.
This chromatic tuner can tune all 12 notes.
The tuner has 4 transposition modes (C, Eb,
F, Bb). Transposition is used when tuning instruments played in
different keys. For example, piano, violin, etc. are played in the key of
C while alto saxophone is played in the key of Eb and French Horn is
in the key of F.
The # and b mode of the tuner allows the half
notes to be displayed all in # or in b. This is used as a preference by
tuner features a very easy to read digital display and easy to use button
The display registers the note name and mode automatically.
The device has a built-in mic but also comes with
a precision pickup for improved acoustic tuning. For string instruments (violin, viola,
cello, and bass), the pickup can be clipped onto the bridge or any part of the
instrument to pick up the sound of the instrument for tuning.
For band instruments, the pickup can also be clipped onto any part of the instrument to pick up sound.
For guitars, the contact microphone can be clipped onto the scroll or any part
of the instrument.
A pickup is better in transmitting sound into the tuner than a built-in mic that always comes with a tuner.
This is because a mic is more likely to pick up background noise that causes interference with the sound from the instrument.
This pickup comes with proper cushion so it will not damage the finish on the
instrument. The clip has a 1-1/2" width range. This allows the
pickup to clip onto any part of the instrument that is as thick as 1-1/2".
The MetroTuner is compact pocket
size. It can easily fit into any case or bag. It also comes with a
built-in stand that allows the metronome to be placed in a easily readable
position. As with all Cherub metronomes, this model is
very well built to resist damage from accidental drops.
