E-MU Systems, Inc. Model 8000 E-Drum Digital Percussion Module

   (0 reviews)

The E-drum was actually developed by Clavia DMI in Sweden, and provided drummers with a single, touch-sensitive pad drum module that offered 40dB of volume range with internal sounds generated from a removable cartridge (containing from one to four 8-bit samples on a 16kB EPROM). A variety of different sound cartridges could be purchased and interchanged in the E-drum, and an optional hardware assembly allowed modular construction of entire drum kits.

This Emu E-drum includes a pitch control, which tunes the pitch either up, down, or no effect (middle position). There is also a Decay control for the triggered 8-bit sound as well as a very warm sounding Treble and Bass controls. The E-drum can be triggered by striking the rubber head on the drum or providing a ¼” triggered input. The E-drum can be powered by two 9v batteries (internal), or can be powered by an 18v DC adapter with an 1/8” plug.
