The patented WalkaBout™ Drum is a guitar-shaped, strap-worn, fully-acoustic percussion instrument with a surprisingly familiar feel that is capable of replacing an entire drum set with quality sounds. Debuting at the NAMM 2018 Show in Anaheim, the WalkaBout is experiencing great reviews everywhere it is played.
There are several tech innovations that come together in the WalkaBout. Proprietary internal bracing optimizes the number and quality of sounds. SounDots, magnetized accessories, allow you to further customize your sound. The body is manufactured for us by Kala Brand instruments. And a dual-source mic/pickup system designed for us by LR Baggs creates a great-sounding instrument that’s plug-and-play.
We believe the WalkaBout™ is a musical game changer. Drummers are finally set free to step up to the front of the stage. Bands finally have a legit way to add percussion to unplugged sets, open mic nights, smaller band venues, even jamming while camping or at the beach. And we’ve seen musicians use it for everything from Rock and Hip Hop to Latin and Americana. Simply put, the WalkaBout™ is inspired fun. Drummers—take a stand!
