This is a highly functional drum machine from Digitech! The SDRUM Strummable Drum Machine allows you to create drum beats just by strumming the low and high strings on the guitar. The video below goes into great detail on how to use this thing! It comes with the external footswitch which is great for easier dialing between beats and tones.
SDRUM is the world’s first intelligent drum machine for guitarists and bassists. By simply scratching across your guitar strings, you teach the SDRUM a kick and snare pattern that forms the foundation of the beat you want to hear. Based on this pattern, the SDRUM supplies a professional sounding drum beat with different embellishments and variations to perfectly complement your beat. Gone are the days of having your creative flow disrupted by searching through lists in a frustrating attempt to find the beat you want. The SDRUM stores up to 36 different songs. Beats are played from a choice of 5 different kits covering a wide range of genres. The pedal also supports three different parts (e.g. verse/chorus/bridge) for each song that can be switched on the fly for enhancing live performances and exploring song ideas. SDRUM is the fastest way to go from a beat idea to a working drum track.
