40 million tons of electronic waste are disposed of worldwide every year. We at McAdams Instruments are committed to reducing our contribution to this waste by producing quality products that are built to last and providing custom repairs to extend the life of your metronome. Many of our oldest metronomes are still in use all over the country, decades after they were purchased, the oldest of which are still in service after 30 to 40 years.
Our metronome cabinets arrive for assembly in boxes that were custom designed to be reused to ship the completed instrument. This allows us to avoid creating additional waste with multiple sets of packaging.
We believe in encouraging lasting investments that help support American small businesses! To the extent possible, components in our metronomes are built in the United States and all of our repairs are performed here as well. These have been our priorities since the company was founded over 40 years ago and will continue to shape our future as well.
