Millenium Drums debuts NonaPad

Europe’s Millenium Drums has released its new electronic percussion pad, the NonaPad.

The multipad offers “controlled performance with a great feel and an eclectic library of sounds (and) nine velocity-sensitive pads (capable of producing) expressive playing styles with ease,” according to the company.

The NonaPad boasts 608 onboard sounds and 30 preset kits.

Eagle-eyed readers will recognise the instrument from its other iterations: the ddrum NIO, dbdrums nPad, Avatar PD705 and Gear4Music DD90.

The Chinese manufacturer, which sells the pad direct under its Avatar brand, has a strategy of releasing the instrument via regional distributors which can customise it for their local market.

The Millenium version has 512 MB of space for user samples.

NonaPad is on sale now for €198 from Thomann.
