More drumless sticks

The “drumless” movement started by Aerodrums continues to grow with the launch of PocketDrum which consists of Bluetooth drumsticks that pair with a mobile phone.

The solution from AeroBand was originally launched on Indiegogo in 2019, when it attracted over 5,000 backers, and then picked up another 4,000 when it relisted last year.

The drumsticks pair to the AeroBand app via Bluetooth 4.0. The app features three modes for beginners learning the basics and pros honing their craft: tutorial, game and freeplay mode.

The sticks can also be paired with GarageBand to play, record and share projects with the world.

According to the manufacturers, the sticks have a 6ms latency, respond to velocity and provide the player with realistic haptic perception. A single charge will give you around 10 hours of drumming.

AeroBand’s PocketDrum is available in Pure White, Night Club (black) with synchronised LEDs, and Too Real (wood). They retail direct from AeroBand for $99.99 (or $159 with two foot sensors), but are often on promotion with deep discounts.
