No drums on hand? No problem. The DigiTech SDRUM pedal lets you lay down innovative beats with a simple strum or scratch of your guitar strings! It packs a plethora of studio quality drum samples with 31 quickly accessible slots, making it a great pedal to use live, to record, or just to get a jam going.
Joining the family of ‘Band Creator’ pedals, the SDRUM turns your guitar into a fully blown rhythm machine.

The level of control it brings makes it a diverse, powerful too packed full of exciting sounds including a collection of ride cymbals, hi-hats and kick and snare pads.
Scratch in your beats
Simply ‘scratch’ your guitar strings the rhythm you want and the SDRUM will do the rest. Adding embellishments as it goes, it will give you a full on drum groove to play along to. It works like magic!

Here's what Digitech say about the SDRUM:
The DigiTech SDRUM is the world’s first intelligent drum machine for guitarists and bassists. By simply scratching across your guitar strings, you teach the SDRUM a kick snare pattern that forms the foundation of the beat you want to hear. Based on this pattern, the SDRUM supplies a professional sounding drum beat with different embellishments and variations to perfectly complement your beat. Gone are the days of having your creative flow disrupted by searching through lists in a frustrating attempt to find the beat you want.
The SDRUM stores up to 36 different songs. Beats are played from a choice of 5 different kits covering a wide range of genres. The pedal also supports three different parts (e.g. verse/chorus/bridge) for each song that can be switched on the fly for enhancing live performances and exploring song ideas.
SDRUM is the fastest way to go from a beat idea to a working drum track.
