I’ll try my best to refrain from making drummer jokes, but I will say that finding a good one is probably harder than hitting all six numbers on the Powerball lotto.
That’s the reason why drum machines were invented, but one dig against drum machines is that it’s nearly impossible to improvise live with them. Instead you have to remain in lockstep with pre-programmed songs and beats.
The Beatbuddy drum machine pedal has changed that, however, allowing musicians to engage intros, fills and rhythm changes as they see fit, with a simple tap of the foot. It’s like having a drummer who can read your mind and is completely at your own control—a concept never imagined possible until the Beatbuddy came along.
