Metronomes haven't changed much over the years. Since the early 9th century, they've helped to improve a player's musical performance by producing an audible click at a desired tempo. But, recently Peterson suggested a new method.

Since the introduction of Peterson vibe-clip technology, musicians all over the world are now experiencing a way to internalize tempo rather than merely playing along to a robotic wood block or cowbell. Peterson Body Beat products provide a tactile pulse that can be felt but not heard, can be worn discreetly and allows your ears to focus on the music you're creating.

Introducing the Peterson Body Beat Pulse Solo. This rechargeable active clip-on device gives every electronic metronome the capability to silently convey tempo. Connect the standard 3.5 millimeter stereo plug and give your favorite metronome whole new level of functionality. The Body Beat Pulse will even work with the metronome apps on your mobile device. Use the pulse with the Peterson Body Beat Metronome App and you'll also feel three different levels of intensity for downbeats, accents and subdivisions.

Tempo should be felt and the loud click of a metronome was never intended to accompany your music. Experience the freedom of playing to an exact tempo without your metronome playing with you.

FEEL THE MUSIC | Peterson Strobe Tuners

FEEL THE MUSIC

Regardless of your instrument of choice, you can use the Body Beat Pulse Solo to help with rhythm training in a totally new way.

Free yourself from the traditional audible click and just hear YOUR music. Internalize the rhythm to "feel" the music.

With two intensity settings, you can adjust the vibration feedback to your liking.

FREEDOM TO CHOOSE THE METRONOME APP YOU DESIRE | Peterson Strobe Tuners

FREEDOM TO CHOOSE THE METRONOME APP YOU DESIRE

The Body Beat Pulse Solo can be used with ANY metronome to "feel" rather than "hear" the beat".

Visit the App Store or Google Play market to find a metronome app that delivers the features you deem important. As long as it supports audio out from the 3.5mm jack, you can use the Body Beat Pulse Solo to deliver a tactile pulse.

Make sure the volume on your phone is turned up in the event a pulse is not felt.

It seemed like a good idea with an OEM app to enhance functionality. Unfortunately, the BodyBeat app is not available in my country or region (USA) according to the iOS app store. It would be nice to know the OEM app isn't accessible for a large portion of the market before purchasing.

I bought one of these online at BanjoBenClark. I loved it. I have had a really hard time keeping time, and this helped a lot. But, after I charged it, it did not work. It would miss beats or whole measures. Called Peterson and they sent me a new one right away. The new one worked great for about a month. I practiced for about an hour or two on Saturday and the metronome was working fine. On Sunday, the day that I was all set to make a video to send to my instructor, the metronome did not work properly again. Same issues...missing beats or entire measures.

So loud it is useless. At least the volume on my Metronome Beats app can be turned down. Even if you hold it tightly in your hand, it is still noisy. Maybe I got a bad one but keep your receipt because you may want to return it, unless you're a drummer perhaps. Very disappointing.

OK, well this little thing works well...but I was not expecting it to make so much noise! The first time I recorded someone who was using it, the sound of the Body Beat Pulse Solo could be clearly heard at the end of the song where the last strummed chord of the guitar decays. It's not only annoying, but there's no way to fix that in the recording! I tried repositioning it against the back of the guitarist (a position farther from the microphone), but you could still hear the Pulse in the recording. Frustrating, because I REALLY LIKE what the Body Beat does.

What the hell???!!! Are you KIDDING me? I've been wanting a tactile / kinesthetic metronome for YEARS... Somebody finally creates one and then makes the app an APPLE ONLY product? I ordered this device before I saw the "ios only" designation after spending an hour on my android phone trying to find the app. Utterly ridiculous. Yes, I know it supposedly works with their compeitor's apps, and generic products. Still a fail.

I can't rate this item yet as it still has not arrived. Was ordered on 11/26, still not here 12/10...
Updated 12/15/2020: The BodyBeat has arrived! Many thanks to Peterson customer support for their quick assistance. I think this is a great item and works perfectly with a metronome app I have on my phone, as well as with an ancient quartz metronome I have.

This is the second one I have purchased because the first one has become unreliable. The design is excellent, but the construction could be a little less fragile.

The way it is currently constructed, after two or three times of accidentally snagging it, it intermittently stops working.

The cord is deliberately thin in order to be less visible, but no matter what, it is still visible unless concealed under part of a shirt or vest or jacket, which is easy, so they might as well make the cord thinker and sturdier. Particularly, the part where the cord joins the unit could be a sturdier connection.

Also, for the instrument survey, it has all kinds of instruments, including Northumbrian Small Pipes, but there was no "accordion" or "concertina" for me to select. I play those in addition to mandolin and Ukulele.

Where is the best place to position a Body Beatproduct?

While this is a personal preference, the most popular places are at the belt line, back of the neck or on the shoe. Face the barrel toward the body for maximum tactile feel. Remember there is a high and low intensity switch on the side of the Body BeatPulse Solo.

Body Beat Sync

$155.00

The Body Beat Sync® represents the ultimate in musical tempo reference devices. As a fully featured metronome, it is capable of transmitting the beat by visual, aural and tactile means. Wireless functionality allows two or more Body Beat Syncs to work in synchronicity with one another, allowing the networking of multiple units on stage, in the recording studio, band room or anywhere the precise synchronization of a performance and its performers is required. The Body Beat Sync can store up to 100 user presets consisting of tempo, meter, subdivision and accent pattern. All preset information is transmitted to each synchronized unit as well as the current bar count of the active preset. If the 100 user presets do not provide enough versatility, the “tempo map” from an entire musical score can be stored in the Body Beat Sync via the mini USB cable. A standard MIDI file can be used or a custom “tempo map” can be designed via the free application on the Body Beat Sync website. Additionally, the Body Beat Sync can be driven by a DAW using MIDI Clock via the mini USB cable. The mini USB connection is not only used to charge the Body Beat Sync, but provides a means for always keeping the unit’s firmware current. You will never need another metronome!
