Natural and Responsive Feel
The WHD 516-Pro Mesh Electronic Drum Kit features a full set of mesh pads for a truly authentic feel, making them both quiet and responsive.
Coming as standard with a snare pad, 3 toms, hi-hat and cymbals, the WHD 516 feels as close to a standard acoustic kit as possible,
but with the extra bonus of being able to change sounds at the push of a button.
The dual trigger, velocity sensitive snare and tom pads ensure a more realistic rim and head triggering,
whilst all cymbals offer a choke feature that gives you the ability to quiet your cymbals by grabbing them.
The hi-hat pedal also has a half open feature, giving a more realistic sound, and getting it even closer to an acoustic kit.
Realistic Acoustic Drum Sounds
This electronic drum kit boasts an impressive 400 individual drum, cymbal and percussion sounds, which have been carefully arranged into 29 preset kits,
with the ability to change the individual sounds and volumes and store these to 16 user kits.
Each sound has been carefully sampled and reacts accurately to how hard you strike the pad, just like an acoustic kit.
As well as having control over the sounds used in the kit, you can change the individual volumes quickly and easily giving you further scope for creativity.
Perfect Your Technique
The 80 preset songs have been selected to give a wide range of fun and informative tracks for play along.
Perfect for practice, the drum track can be removed so you can take this role yourself.
An inbuilt metronome helps you keep time whilst the LCD display lets you know if you play too fast or too slow.
The intuitive learning mode includes a set of exercises designed to help build speed, accuracy and stamina - three of the most useful attributes for an aspiring drummer.
Connectivity and Adaptability
The WHD 516 has been developed to offer a range of connectivity options.
The aux in allows you to connect an mp3 or CD player which is great for learning new songs.
Play silently using headphones or use the output to connect an amplifier or PA system if you like it loud! The WHD 516 also boasts MIDI and USB capability.
If you want to add to your kit the WHD has additional ports for another tom or crash so there's no need to purchase a whole new kit - the 516 can progress as you do.
Stand Out From The Crowd
The WHD 516 comprises a black metal rack and stylish white mesh drum pads with black rims and brackets.
As well as showing less wear and tear they are also ideal for anyone gigging or playing in low light conditions as they are more easily seen than conventional black rubber pads.
If you have limited space, need silent practice options or are simply looking for modern digital functionality the WHD 516 Pro offers a distinctive electronic kit, which sounds and feels like an acoustic kit,
at an exceptional price.
If you're just starting out or are simply looking for a more complete set up, this kit is available in a package with sticks, drum throne and headphones -
