For over 100 years, the German Wittner concern has made finely-crafted precision metronomes. Computer-controlled technology makes sure that manufacturing standards for Wittner products are maintained to the same exacting levels in the 21st century as the craftsman-built metronomes of a century ago.
In addition to the traditional wooden pyramidal metronomes, Wittner have introduced the "Taktell" metronome. These are compact metronomes that allow the lower section of the pendulum to be visible. The Piccolo and the Piccolino metronomes are plastic and have a "penguin" and "arch" shape respectively. The Super Mini metronome lives within a cuboidal hardwood case of mahogany or blackwood.
