Seeing this brings back memories of high school. I used to take piano and voice lessons at a community music school, and the classrooms had these same metronomes on top of the pianos, which were older and beautifully crafted instruments from an earlier, more elegant time…
A Franz! They don’t make those anymore. Pity, they were the best metronomes EVAH.
Man, we need more Bakelite gadgets,
This is completely a high school memory.
In the practice rooms of our h.s. band room, where these metronomes sitting on a crusty, upright piano.
I the diamond shape on the top of the casing does not light up, adjust volume…or do anything.
It adorns a weird, white diamond.
Bakelite? how about a Admiral radio/record player?
