Mark Drum
« on: January 19, 2012, 08:04:39 PM »
There is a new player on the market. Mark Drum! They also make bass amps (Mark Bass) and guitar amps (DV Mark). I must say that I'm excited to hear and see how this plays. Their guitar and bass stuff is very good and the price is right, too.

I actually have the Little Mark III. I carry the thing around in my backpack. :) I have their box (2x10) as well, it weights only around 20kg.

That set sounds great!, but I don't like the look of it.

The good thing about this is that it s very possible  they will also produce  an E-drum amplification system in the future ....

       and if it sounds like their compact bass amps .....then i ll be saying ....Wouaw ! ;)

Did anyone checked about the specs ?

http://markdrum.it/product_detail.php?id=1

They mention something i don't understand :
- Piezo sensors: 5 x snare drum, 3 x rack toms, 1 x kick, 10 x ride and crash, 4 x hi-hat

If i read well, there is 10 Piezo sensors for ride and crash, how is that ? Does RJ11 that connections ? I have to dig that. First i see E-drums using something else than TS/TRS jacks.

I dislike the Kick design but there's some good ideas like the way they design the cable management with RJ11.

I found it very intriguing

hi

IMO they use multiple piezo on cymbal tom and snare to achieve positionnal sensing , and some algorythm uses the relation between the sensors to compensate for Hotspots ....

From what i undrestood , the triggering is prosseced within the pads , and RJ11 cables only carry digital signal to the module and power for the triggering device ....

Good idea that RJ11 ... must be cost effective too and quite solid .... i think they just buy cheap telephone coiled cables and voila ;)



here you see the snare ....  it s possible the 4 white dots are the 4 head sensor , ant the fifth is for Rim trigger ...  not sure ,just guessing ...

I have checked videos in italian and this is exactly what they say about the signal processing and head sensors place.

I'm not speaking italian but you and I  speak a language with latin roots so we are able to understand some stuff. Did I just hear va fan curo ?  ;D

I was there, I played it.... it is a higher quality kit, and sound then your typical edrum kit out there. Some similarities I think with 2Box ... in that they are loading sampled instruments.... and have gigs of memory. Personally I'm pretty critical and biased I suppose because I have customized my 2Box kit and love the results so am a little tough to please.

What is pretty restrictive with this one .... well, it is pretty much: Use their pads with their module, rack, etc.... it isn't like it is compatible with anything else. Maybe good for them with the phone jacks ... innovative idea .... but also very restrictive in the other sense.

For a debutant - it seems to be a nice kit.

AT 2,000 Eur/USD, it's not exactly cheap. But there will be more kits to download in the future.

Some nice ideas, but some very limiting factors as well.
I think I read the module is also closed, so no importing of sounds either, from what you saw / heard, is that correct Jerry?
