About Drum Monitors

Drum Monitors are purpose built, specially designed speaker systems for faithfully recreating the wide array of sounds produced by your digital drum kit, at volumes to be heard along with your bandmates. There's also nothing quite like the freedom of playing without being encumbered by cabled headphones while hearing every nuance of your digital kits tones.

Digital drum kits can produce a very complex and wide ranging series of tones, from high impact, low frequency kick sounds, to sparkling, shimmering cymbal sounds, to the whole array of synth sounds at your disposal, so you need an amp that can do it all at once, and that's where electronic drum monitors come in.

Why Should I Choose a Drum Monitor?

  • Faithfully reproduce the complex frequency spread of your digital drum kit
  • Play out loud at a volume to keep up with your bandmates
  • Gives you the freedom to play your digital kit without headphones or in-ear monitors
