What is the Wizzdrum?
The Wizzdrum is a new instrument (patent pending), with the following characteristics:
â¢ Acoustic on the same level as vocals and guitar, so the whole band can play acoustic with rhythmic support (whisper)
â¢ Electric amplification opens up a new dimension of playing drums
â¢ Amplification is simple with 2 microphones by compact placing
â¢ By adding sound effects (reverb, delay en others) a new sound arises (compare the revolution in music by the electric guitar)
â¢ Operation of the sound effects with the free feet
â¢ Looping while you play
â¢ The Wizzdrum is suitable for each sound level, so also for (very) large venues
â¢ Wizzdrum has therefore the advantages of a conventional drum set and the advantages of an electronic drum set and therefor more to offer than both alternatives
â¢ Playing at home without disturbing the neighbors or hearing damage; acoustic or electric with headphone. No special rehearsal room necessary.
â¢ Compact and complete:
- Requires very little space on stage or at home
- Active position in the band (performing standing up)
â¢ New playing techniques:
- Playing the bass drum with both hands
- Great speed because of the compact - short range - drum kit components
â¢ It all fits in one bag of about 50 x 40 x 40 cm (transportable by bike)
â¢ Built up and break down time is very short (around 7 minutes)
â¢ The Wizzdrum can easily be moved (plug and play)
Rehearsals, gigs and travelling will be a lot easier with the Wizzdrum
â¢ Because of its compactness the price level is low compared to conventional drum kits especially considering the included amplification of the standard kit
