The e-Pro Live electronic drum kit by Pearl drums will be available on the market coming August 6th. Conceptualized to be the first electronic set that sounds, feels and especially looks like a real drum kit, this set combines a lot of interesting features.
The e-Pro Live features 10"x6.5", 12"x7" and 14"x8" rack toms with a 20"x12" bass and 14"x4.5" snare with white heads that give a look of real skins. The drum shells are composed of 6-ply wood along with robust drum hardware and are available in two drums finishes, #31 Jet Black and Pearl's new Artisan II finish. Because the e-Pro Live is made of real drums you can substitute the electronic head for real ones. The Tru-Trac Electronic Heads feature dual zones to reproduce all of the intricacies a drummer hears when playing acoustic drums. The cymbals featured on the e-Pro Live are Pearl's E-Classic high-end electronic cymbals, made with real brass. E-Classics feature a 3-zone plus choke 16" Ride, 13" chokable crash and super responsive 12" Hi-Hats. Traditional rubber EPC2 cymbals are also available and feature a 14" 3-zone Ride, a 12" Crash, and a set of 12" super responsive hi-hats. The e-Pro Live comes with the r.e.d.box. drum module which boasts 128MB of RAM. The full memory is used to accommodate the Original Acoustics of 1000 High Definition sounds and 100 High Definition kits. The sound library includes acoustic and vintage drums, electronics from beat machines to modern digital and a variety of orchestral, concert and world percussion instruments. This drum module also features the ability to flash the memory of the module and replace the Original Acoustics with one large and lush-sounding kit. Drum sampling software companies like Toontrack, BFD, Ocean Way, Steven Slate, Sonic Reality, and Virtual Drum Line will be designing premium kits for the e-Pro Live that will be available for purchase at www.redboxsoundshop.com.
The e-Pro Live is hitting the market with a tag of $3199.00.
