Hello New Gear – October 2021

September was a month full of new products to say the least – we’re sure that you will find this month edition very interesting 😉 

Millenium MPS-1000 E-Drum Set

This electronic drum set combines the strengths of acoustic and electronic drum kits. The Millenium MPS-1000 has a bold “analog” look thanks to its wooden shell which is then combined with the great sounds and modern features of an electronic drum kit. Playability is excellent thanks to the double-layered mesh-equipped drum pads. The three cymbal pads and hi-hat pad convey an optimal feeling thanks to different sensitivity zones. This revolutionary e-drum module not only offers 820 sounds in 40 presets and 40 user kits with 23 effects, it also has 335MB of storage space for your personal samples and settings. The set comes complete with drums, cymbals and hardware – unpack, set it up and start playing! Check our demo video down below:

Zultan Raw SlapClap 12/14/16

This cymbal stack from Zultan is the perfect match for your drum setup! If you don’t always want to electronically generate the classic ‘claps’ and prefer a natural effect sound, you MUST get this set. The Zultan RAW series stack consists of three 12, 14 and 16 inch cymbals, handcrafted with B20 bronze in Turkey. The stack can be played with sticks, brushes or felt mallets and, by varying the position of the individual cymbals in the stack, you can fine-tune the overall sound. Regardless of whether you make pop, hip hop, R’n’B, soul or industrial music, this is a great complementary cymbal to add to your arsenal. You can find out how it sounds, including the different fine adjustments, by watching the video below!

Zultan Q China 17" and 18"

Zultan just released two new 17″ and 18″ China cymbals. These new handcrafted Turkish cymbals, made from B20 bronze, deliver a dark, deep and full sound with an incredible dynamic range and a medium to long sustain. In this series, the 2-inch outer ring of the upper basin and the dome are hand hammered, untreated and left raw, while the central surface area is polished and glossed. The resulting sonic quality of this cymbal is simply astounding!

ASM Hydrasynth Deluxe und Explorer

The Ashun Sound Machines (ASM) Hydrasynth synthesizer created a lot of buzz when it was launched. At this year’s Superbooth 2021, ASM took it one step further by launching two variations of the popular synth: for those who find the “classic” Hydrasynth too small, the Deluxe version might be perfect (73 large and velocity-sensitive keys with fully polyphonic aftertouch and a vocal range extended to 16 ), while for those who find it too large the Explorer version may be more suited: 37 velocity-sensitive “Medium Size” keys, obviously with fully polyphonic aftertouch. Like the original, the Explorer version also has 8 voices. The sound engine of all models is guaranteed by ASM quality, so you can focus on your creativity!
