    Product Description

    Please Note: you will need sticks, a drum stool, headphones, a kick pedal and a hi-hat stand (all sold separately) to get the most out of this kit. 

    The e/Merge drum kit is one of the most exciting innovations and collaborations in recent drum history. The key to this collaboration starts with Korgs powerful e/Merge MDL1 module which has a massive library of high-definition samples - organic, natural and minimally processed acoustic Pearl drums. 

    Next, they added the very best electronic, world, orchestral and speciality percussion sounds to create an incredibly versatile hybrid drum kit. The 3 key elements that separate the e/Merge from anything that's come before include the MDL1 e/Merge Module, Korgs Wave Trigger Technology and Pearls acoustic-feeling PureTouch Electronic drum pads.

    Wave Trigger Technology & PureTouch

    Wave Trigger Technology was created by Korg to add realism to playing with an electronic kit or pad. It sends audio signal so fast that hitting the electronic pad will send the sample so fast that you feel like you're playing an acoustic instrument. This gives you a sense of realism that most other electronic kits simply don't have. 

    When this is combined with Pearls PureTouch pads you feel like you're playing an acoustic drum kit.The PureTouch cymbal pads have 6 sensor layers that respond to every nuance of your playing and even sound different depending on the stick you're using! You can choke the cymbals like you would on an acoustic kit and can even be tightened and loosened to respond like an acoustic cymbal would.


    Pearl hardware is notoriously, well, hardy. It's been built for the rigours of the road and can take a serious beating without moving an inch on stage or in the studio. The only other thing that'll look familiar from an acoustic drum kit is the

    Mr Graham Wilkins1st Mar 2020

    Most responsive kit we've tried. Everything seems well made, sounds really good. Still working on the final little tweaks. We wanted to reduce the live sound of an acoustic kit, and the E-merge has accomplished this perfectly
