The Floordrum came to life because we wanted to spice up our duo performances without relying on limiting backing tracks.
We explored options like the Farmer Footdrum, but it was a bit pricey for us. So, we tried out different solutions like the Roland SPD-ONE and Ortega Horsekick.
However, we wanted more sounds and pads. This led to the creation of the Floordrum, a compact, lightweight, and versatile Foot Drum solution.
The Floordrum offers musicians a range of features and benefits that make it a fantastic addition to any performance:
1. Portable and Light:
The Floordrum is super light, weighing only 6.5 kg, and its dimensions are 45x80 cm. You can take it with you wherever you go to make music.
2. Diverse Sound Library:
Inside the Floordrum, you'll find a variety of top-notch sound samples. It includes 5 kicks, 7 snares, 6 hi-hats, 2 rides, 2 crashes, 2 toms, and 18 percussion sounds. You can mix and match these sounds to create up to 30 different drum kits, giving you endless creative possibilities.
3. Easy Sound Customization:
Just like traditional e-drums, the Floordrum allows you to adjust various settings to get your ideal sound. You can tweak instrument settings, volume, sensitivity, and more to match your playing style.
4. No Unwanted Sounds:
We've carefully designed the Floordrum to prevent unwanted sounds, a problem known as "crosstalk." This means you won't accidentally trigger neighboring pads while playing dynamically. However, if you want to get creative, you can easily play two pads at the same time. For example, you can combine a cymbal with a kick drum or add a tambourine sound alongside a snare drum. The Floordrum offers endless possibilities for experimenting with your music. Additionally, it's ergonomically built to let you play up to three sounds using just one foot, expanding your rhythmic options.
5. Versatile Connections:
The Floordrum can connect to your computer via USB MIDI. This means you can use it with external sound modules or drum software like EZ-Drummer and Garageband. You can also set it up to switch drum kits using apps like Setlistmaker via MIDI, making your live performances smoother.
Handcrafted in Sardinia, Italy:
Each Floordrum is lovingly handmade in a small workshop on the beautiful island of Sardinia, Italy, with the help of our family. We may not be a big company, but we take pride in creating each instrument with care and precision to ensure top-notch quality and performance.
In summary, the Floordrum is not just a foot drum; it's a versatile, portable, and easy-to-customize percussion tool that puts creative power right at your feet. With its wide range of sounds, user-friendly features, and handcrafted quality, the Floordrum is your perfect companion for making music your way.
