How are the NOMA series Drum Buddies different?

1. All NOMA series Drum Buddies will come with a SPEED PEDAL option.
This means that you can bypass the "BPM" knob on the top by flipping a switch on the back and plugging in a Pedal (included) to quickly bring the BPM back and forth from zero to one hundred twenty.
This could be very handy when playing an instrument thru the Wobble mode and you need a hands-free way to vary the rotation of the can.
You can get some totally weird random "auto-wah" effects that you just cant do with the 10-turn BPM pot on the top.

2. Every Drum Buddy in this series will include SIX CANS as well as a kit and instructional video on how to paint and cut your own cans.
Not all tools and materials are included
(you will need to get a drill press, a bunch of number 10 cans - free from ANY pizza restaurant - and some flat black spray paint)
but there are some essential measuring tools included for cutting precise beats and a special mount for holding the can in place while drilling.

3. Every instrument in this series features a one-of-kind dovetailed cabinet, each built from a different wood by expert craftsman Hunter Roth.

4. All NOMA series Drum Buddies feature a new lighted inside and back panel as well as a glowing platter mount.

5. All NOMA series Drum Buddies feature mirrored tops and anodized metallic pipes.

6. All NOMA series Drum Buddies still include the classic Kick, Snare, Bass, and Space sounds
as well as a totally separate "Wobble" function which allows you to plug any instrument into the Drum Buddy
and effect the sound with light from the can via the yellow pipe.
