V-Beat Drumsticks

Drumstick

Nothing beats bashing seven bells out of a drumkit. It's the most satisfyingly primeval musical experience known to man. Unfortunately drumkits are cumbersome and expensive. And unless you've got a team of roadies, they're about as portable as anvils tied to battleship chains. But who needs a drumkit when you can create percussive pandemonium with the V-Beat Air Drum.

V-Beat Drumsticks

Controller

Comprising a pair of motion-sensitive sticks attached to an electronic 'brain', this nifty set up allows all you Bonham wannabes to indulge in a bit of crash, bang wallop without a drumkit. Yes, really. Simply hit the air where the respective drums and cymbals would be if you were sitting at a traditional kit and you'll hear the corresponding snare, tom or cymbal. Ka-boom-chi! You even get a pair of foot sensors for some bass drum/hi-hat action. Just attach them to your shoes and kick away.

Foot pedal

The main unit comes preloaded with three melodies to jam along to, and there's also a free-play mode and fill-in mode. Keep practising and you'll be playing that tom fill from In the Air Tonight before you can say 'yes, but why a gorilla?' What's more you can choose between four drumkits: acoustic, electronic, pots and pans and ethnic (at least we think that's what they are).

It doesn't matter if you're a complete novice with the rhythmic ability of Sooty's mate Sweep, or a proficient skin-basher in need of a portable rehearsal device, the V-Beat Air Drum is ideal. Of course it goes without saying you'll look like a total headcase bashing away at thin air, but if you've ever tried setting up a full-on set of drums you won't care. So go on, give it some stick. Boom-boom!

I bought these for my boyfriend for Xmas and he absolutely loves them! He hasn't stopped playing them, thank god for the headphone socket which means he can play to his hearts content. Would recommend to anyone.

I don't know about the actual product layout, but the image at the top of the page does indeed show the hi-hat in the wrong place for a right handed drummer, it should be on the left of the player, beside the snare. The cymbal highlighted in green on the diagram at the top is actually a ride XD.
Matt Taylor, Milton Keynes - 25th November 2009
Just ordered these... i play drums a little bit but can't afford to buy a real silent drum kit. Actually, I think, if the price was say even 60 pounds, but the sticks were much more accurate or had features like changing the layout of the drum set, it would be still worth it, and I'd actually buy those. . But still, looks fun!
Evgeny, England - 22nd November 2009
Despite of what others say, the hi-hat is not on the wrong side of the drum kit. In your left hand you have the hi-hat, high tom and crash cymbal, in your right hand the snare, ride and low tom. I like the toy but in my opinion it could be fine tuned better. Sometimes it will play the snare drum more then you actually strike it.

This is absolutely smashing. I got this for my daughter, but good job I didn't tell her about it.. Now it's MY toy. Well actually, scrap that, it's not a toy at all. I managed to get into the rhythm with quite a good number of songs (mostly rock ballads since I love Metal!) I connected the headphone socket to my beloved NAD amplifier and the sound is absolutely awesome! Deep bass and crisp highs... Take it from me...worth every penny.
