For The Love Of Drumming

Ever caught yourself doing the air-drums in the middle of a song? Van Halen and WWRY get me to do that all the time. Well, the option of using a portable instrument like the Y-Drum is a good one, especially when it works out good for beginners. It is a mobile, accessible and easy to use; making the percussion practice even more fun.

As Kévin explains, “Everyone can build and customize his own set with the pads. All the system is synchronized via Bluetooth. So just set up or choose a drum set with the Roland’s application installed on the smartphone, the tablet or the computer and start to play!”

  • Great but without ergonomic considerations!

    This is a great concept except that it will not work without having the pads on pedestals. The reason is that you cannot reasonably drum on a desk or table with sticks as the surface is too high and your shoulders would hurt too much after one session. Lower the surface and your would need to be farther back because your feet cannot get under the surface (knee in the way). You would need longer drum sticks. and that is one reason you always drum at the knee for the greater part as any higher would cause physiological problems long term.

    I like it though. Now put them on a tiny pedestals array that folds around and held down by your stool.

    I think it is an excellent idea. No one is stupid enough to compare this to a real drum kit it’s just a bit of fun. Half the fun is finding somewhere suitable to play such as in the park. On a picnic bench and hoping the dog doesn’t mistake your symbol for a frisbee. haha I am also about to buy an “iloud” manufactured by ik irig, perfect for jamming in the park. Best of luck with your endeavours. PS don’t listen to the naysayers.
