York, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom, 2009/03/27 - Launched this week, the Digital Drums 502-J Electronic Kit by Gear4music is an advanced drum set, which retails at a fraction of the cost of a high end electronic kit.
This is a fully featured 5 piece set made up of a snare pad, 3 toms, hi-hat and cymbals, and is shipped with both kick and hi-hat control pedals. It is the ideal answer for an expert player looking for a practice kit or software trigger.
The 502-J includes 215 multi-sampled drum, cymbal and percussive sounds, which react precisely to the strength with which the pad is hit. Organised into 30 fully customisable kits, the 502-J gives you a solid foundation for building your own unique sets. 50 backing tracks are included, with the ability to remove individual drum parts from the music.
Each drum pad has a precise velocity response, allowing for everything from the subtlest rolls to the harshest hits. Interchangeable drum heads mean that this kit can be customised to personal preference.
The 502-J has an array of advanced connections onboard. Each pad has an individual audio output, as well as the main stereo output, allowing for advanced routing and effects combinations. An auxiliary-in allows for connection of an external sound device, allowing for jamming and creating with favourite songs. The addition of MIDI out means the sonic possibilities are expandable to a large range of sounds – just hook the 502-J up with an external sound module or software based instrument.
Mike Langley, Drum and Percussion expert at Gear4music (gear4music.com), said “we have worked hard to develop an electronic drum kit that offers professional level features at a price point achievable by everyone. The Digital Drums 502-J exceeds this specification, providing a highly flexible kit that should meet the needs of the most demanding of drummers.”
UK RRP for the Digital Drums 502-J is £299.99. The kit is also available in a package that includes stool, headphones and extra drum sticks for £329.95. Both products come with the Gear4music one year warranty.
