What is the best new electronic percussion gear of 2018?


We saw incredible innovation in the electronic percussion world in 2018. Top-end technology trickled down into more affordable kits, a new electronic drum brand hit the market with their first complete setup and a veteran drum company wowed the world with a rather clever piece of hybrid kit. 

Whether you’re a bedroom e-kit player, an electro-acoustic experimenter or a weekend warrior, you were spoiled for choice this year. Find out who made our shortlist and cast your vote below.

Last year’s winner: Roland SPD::ONE percussion pads
