With the high level of electronic drum sets released at this year’s NAMM Show, it’s no surprise to see manufacturers rolling out more gaming peripherals in the same vein - moving away from flimsy plastic controllers to an altogether more ‘realistic’ playing experience. Omega Music Technology’s GM-1 System is the first for 2010.
Essentially, Omega has released a set of triggers compatible with Rock Band and Guitar Hero, enabling the gamer to play with a real drum kit. Available as a DIY set (see picture 2) for $249 or bundled with a Pearl kit which may well be the world’s largest game controller.
Any noise-level concerns have been taken care of with support for mesh heads and the Choral Choke damping system for the cymbals.
