Ayant un petit groupe de musique nous nous sommes procuré cette pédale dans le but de l'utiliser comme métronome il y a de ça un an. Nous avons été surpris de la qualité sonore et les banques de rythme de départ sur la carte son suffisant. Avec les multiples ajustements, BPM, Rythmes variés et jeux de batteries on fini par trouver un rythme qui convient. Même que c'est rendu que sans ce rythme, il manque quelques choses à notre band. Ça ne remplace pas un drummer mais c'est surprenant. Utilisation simple et intuitive, Vraiment efficace,

By far the best practice aid ever! I went from feeling like a bad newby to stage worthy just by adding a drummer that sounds so real!! It makes practice a fun experience instead of work.

Works as advertised and easy to learn and use. Sounds fantastic... and all the beats, transitions and fills are realistic and fluid. I am a former drummer who is now playing acoustic guitar and singing, and this is the coolest thing ever. So much fun to play with. I've only had it a month and already have over 45 songs programmed in sets. I am not a professional yet, but soon.
