Think of an electronic drum kit and you think of the 1980s – the drummers from period horrors like Spandau Ballet of Dead Or Alive producing some flat beats from even flatter drums. Those early kits faded away – but now the techno-drum has returned, courtesy of the Traps E400.
And it is much-improved, looking more like a real kit, but with less weight and with the option to do some silent drumming – just plug in your headphones. The kit includes two cymbals, a hi-hat, three toms, a snare drum, bass drum and the stool. So just about everything you need for making a racket.
Not a bad price for a full drum kit too – around £450.
