The E&MM Electronic Drum Guide


On the following two pages you'll find a list of all available (or soon-to-be-available) electronic drum-kits and rhythm-machines. In the latter case, we've confined ourselves to those devices that offer the user some degree of programmability, since the market for machines with only factory-preset rhythms has contracted considerably in recent months as a direct result of increased competition from the programmables, which offer far greater artistic freedom as well as greater programming versatility.


In the case of electronic kits, we've included any device that has strikeable pads, so that as well as full-size kits such as the Simmons models, you'll also find downsized machines such as The Kit and Mattel Synsonics. Hybrid devices that offer pads as well as rhythm-pattern programming, like the Music Percussion Computer and the new AHB Inpulse, are also listed here.

Where firm retail prices have yet to be announced by manufacturers or distributors, this is indicated by 'TBA' in the listings. Prices for these instruments will appear in future issues of E&MM, as and when they begin to be implemented.
