Pearl: Welcome to the Throne Thumper

Pearl has developed a new device that helps drummers hear the bass much clearer.
New device to help drummers hear bass
Pearl has announced that it has developed a new device for drummers to get the best out of their drum kits.

In a press release, it said: "It's time to feel your drums like never before. The Pearl Drum Corporation has released a new tactile monitoring device for drums called "The Pearl Throne Thumper".

The device allows drummers to feel low frequency sounds – for example, the thump of a bass drum – which can get lost during a music session.

In general, bass sounds – emanating from instruments like the drums and a bass guitar – can be difficult to hear, suggested Pearl. Tactile transducers alleviate this nuisance.

It took Pearl and Guitammer two years to develop the innovative device, which is set to bring a whole new level to playing the drums.

"The response to the Throne Thumper by our artists has been nothing short of amazing," said Terry West, president of Pearl Drums.

"The Throne Thumper can be used anywhere electronic or acoustic drums are played and it is especially suited for the house of worship market where the drummer's sound level and the entire stage volume is very controlled."
