The name Wizzdrum refers to Wizard (magic) and Whisper (low sound level). Wouter Hietkamp, inventor of the creative drum concept, introduces the extended version of the drum kit from the Musikmesse 2014 in Frankfurt.
The Wizzdrum fits in a single small bag, is lightweight (about 19 kilos), is mounted (and demounted) in about 7 minutes and can be played both acoustically and electrically. One of the unique features of the concept is that the drummer doesnt need his feet for playing the drum kit. Instead of using his feet for operating the bass drum and hi-hat pedals, the feet can be used for operating sound effect stompboxes, percussion elements or midi-controllers. This makes it possible to dynamically use sound effects while playing, as well as live looping or whatever it is you want to do with your feet.
When the Wizzdrum is played acoustically the sound level is comparable to the sound level of other acoustic instruments like guitar, piano and vocals. This means that rehearsals can be planned and located much easier (playing in your home is possible) and that damage to the hearing (a common problem amongst drummers) is no longer an issue. Furthermore the neighbors of a drummer will have a lot less reason to complain about the sound level, making it possible to rehearse a lot longer and more regular.
