Singular Sound unveils BeatBuddy Mini drum machine pedal

Downsized stompbox is available for half the price of the original BeatBuddy

Singular Sound BeatBuddy Mini

We loved the concept of the original BeatBuddy 'personal drummer' pedal, and now Singular Sound has announced a downsized incarnation, the BeatBuddy Mini.

The BeatBuddy Mini offers the same ease of use and live beat control – tap the footswitch to fill, hold to transition, double-tap to end – as its predecessor, but in a more compact enclosure, with controls for volume and genre/song/tempo, plus a diddy LED screen and footswitch compatibility.

Although there's a smaller feature set – with fewer upgradable features, limited drum set versatility, and no compatibility with USB, SD cards, MIDI or headphones – the Mini comes in at half the price of the original: $149, as opposed to $299.

The BeatBuddy is available from December – you can preorder now at Singular Sound.
