Korg CLIPHIT Clip Drum Kit (RRP £139)
The Korg CLIPHIT is a new kind of drum kit! Attach the clips to any surface any instantly turn them into a drum kit. Practice with any surface using Korg's sensor clip technology and EFX programmed sounds.
The Korg CLIPHIT is a new electric drum kit that's great for practice or relaxed playing. Simply attach the clips to any object - a magazine, a desk or almost anything - instantly transforming it into a snare, hi-hat or cymbal. If you prefer something a bit more traditional you can also attach these clips to practice pads using them to play drums or any of the programmed EFX sounds that include things like dog sounds, cat or hand clapping.
CLIPHIT is an electronic drum kit composed of three clips with internal sensors, as well as a foot switch. You can attach the clips to almost any surface and play drums in real time. The drum volume changes as you vary the force of your strike, and can also be adjusted independently for each clip and pedal. There's a 3-inch speaker with 2W output and a bass-reflex design, delivering great-sounding tone for your drum performance.
Eleven different combinations are provided, including snare, hi-hat, toms, cymbals, bass drums. If you add an optional pedal switch, you'll be able to simultaneously play a total of five different sounds, three with the clips and two with the pedal, expanding your drum performance to hi-hat open/close or double bass. EFX programmed sounds such as conga, tambourine and hand-claps are just some of the wide variety of sounds included in the CLIPHIT.
In addition to using the clips and the pedal, you can also strike the CLIPHIT itself with your hand to play the snare or other sounds that are assigned to "CLIP 2." The CLIPHIT is designed with plenty of flexibility: you can use this capability in conjunction with "CLIP 1" and "CLIP 3," when using the main unit and the pedal switch, or when simply using the CLIPHIT by itself. (If a clip is connected to "CLIP 2," striking the CLIPHIT itself does not produce sound).
The Korg CLIPHIT is compact and easily storable, but also looks good enough to leave on display in offices, studios and living spaces. Four AA batteries allow up to six hours of operation, allowing you to enjoy playing in a wide range of situations. There's also an AUX input so you can connect an MP3 player and jam along. There's endless ways to use this fun instrument.
