Comments from customers who bought this item:
Natural and Responsive Feel
Coming as standard with a quiet and responsive mesh snare pad, 3 toms, hi-hat and cymbals, the WHD 516 looks and feels like a standard acoustic kit, but with the extra bonus of being able to change sounds at the push of a button. A dual trigger, velocity sensitive snare and velocity sensitive tom pads ensure a more realistic rim and head triggering, and the cymbals have a choke feature. The hi-hat pedal has a half open feature, giving a more realistic sound, and getting it even closer to an acoustic kit; simple yet highly effective.
Realistic Acoustic Drum Sounds
This electronic drum kit boasts an impressive 400 individual drum, cymbal and percussion sounds, which have been carefully arranged into 29 preset kits, with the ability to change the individual sounds and volumes and store these to 16 user kits. Each sound has been carefully sampled and reacts accurately to how hard you strike the pad, just like an acoustic kit. As well as having control over the sounds used in the kit, you can change the individual volumes quickly and easily giving you further scope for creativity.
Perfect Your Technique
The 80 preset songs have been selected to give a wide range of fun and informative tracks for play along. Perfect for practice, the drum track can be removed so you can take this role yourself. An inbuilt metronome helps you keep time whilst the LCD display lets you know if you play too fast or too slow.
The intuitive learning mode includes a set of exercises designed to help build speed, accuracy and stamina - three of the most useful attributes for an aspiring drummer.
Connectivity and Adaptability
The WHD 516 has been developed to offer a range of connectivity options. The aux in allows you to connect an mp3 or CD player which is great for learning new songs. Play silently using headphones or use the output to connect an amplifier or PA system if you like it loud! The WHD 516 also boasts MIDI and USB capability.
If you want to add to your kit the WHD has additional ports for another tom or crash so there's no need to purchase a whole new kit - the 516 can progress as you do.
Stand Out From The Crowd
The WHD 516 comprises a silver metal rack and stylish white drum pads. As well as showing less wear and tear they are also ideal for anyone gigging or playing in low light conditions as they are more easily seen than the conventional black pads. This kit also features a mesh snare head, giving a realistic feel to your snare hits. If you have limited space, need silent practice options or are simply looking for modern digital functionality the WHD 516 Pro offers a distinctive electronic kit, which sounds and feels like an acoustic kit, at an exceptional price.If you're just starting out or are simply looking for a more complete set up, this kit is available in a package with sticks, drum throne and headphones - WHD 16-Pro Package Deal.
Alternatively if you're after some extra volume, the 516 also comes in a package with an additional amplifier - WHD 16-Pro Amp Pack.
