NAMM Preview: Behringer Electronic Drums

Fresh out of their boxes on the opening day of NAMM, Behringer Electronics unveils the most affordable full-featured electronic drum kits on the market. And we do mean affordable. The kits will be available for the list (MAP) prices of $299, $399, and $499. Imagine what they'll street for! The highest-end model comes with more than 700 sounds and 100 preset drum sets, chokable cymbals, triple-zone ride and snare, and a rack that’s set up out of the box. It’s also got a USB connection that you can plug into a computer or an iPad. All the kits feature dual-trigger rubber pads. We’ll have the rest of the show to put the kits through their paces and see how the triggering and feel stack up. But at this price point, their mere existence is kind of a story in itself.
