ATV have become known for making high-quality, stage-worthy electronic drum kits with impressive sounds. The EXS series brings ATV's reputation for sound and build quality to more space-saving kits.
This is the EXS-2 model, it's more stripped down and affordable than the larger models in the EXS range, but still retains the impressive xD3 drum module. This kit features an 8" kick drum, a 10" snare drum, two 8" toms, an 8" floor tom, a 12" hi-hat, a 12 cymbal for crash, and a 12" cymbal for ride.
Compact Yet Comfortable Playing
The EXS-2 is much more compact than its larger counterparts, perfect if you don't have a huge amount of room spare in your home or studio. Despite not having some of the more advanced features the larger models have, the EXS-2 is still an impressive kit that's comfortable to play.
The lightweight cymbals have a sensor that faces you and helps keep the size down. The zone is very responsive to your playing including how and where you strike it.
The benefit of the EXS-2 is that you still get an all-mesh kit. This kit features two-layer mesh heads that are durable yet sensitive, able to handle a broad dynamic range. The kick drum is also a compact design that feels great to play - sturdy with an immediate response.
xD3 Sound Module
At the heart of the EXS range is the xD3 sound module. The result of detailed studio work, the xD3 features excellent drum samples for impressive drum sounds. ATV have aimed to capture the natural resonance and dynamic range of acoustic drums, even taking into account drum position and ambient sound. There's no fear of sterile sounding drums with the xD3.
With electronic drums, it's important to have a responsive playing experience. The xD3 is highly responsive with low-latency so you won't have to worry about lag messing up your rhythm. You can also store and recall parameters for drum and cymbal sensitivity allowing you to set your ideal responsiveness.
The xD3 is full of features to help make your playing better and more enjoyable. The actual sounds contained in the module are, of course, the most important feature. The xD3 comes with five distinct drum models covering genres as wide as rock, pop, metal, and swing. All these models are recorded to capture a real sense of space so there are no flat sounds here.
The onboard metronome function allows for visual monitoring of your timing and strike strength allowing you to analyse your performance and help you play more efficiently. The xD3 comes with backing tracks recorded by professional musicians and also features record and playback functionality for listening back to your performances.
