The TOURTECH TT-16S brings a host of upgrades and professional features to the range whilst still bringing outstanding value. Almost every detail of the TT-16S has been upgraded: the frame, the module, the pads, the kick pedal and the cymbals. Significantly, this translates to feel, response and expression, which is good news for drummers!
Whether you are new to drums or you’re an experienced player, the TOURTECH TT-16S provides an absorbing, high quality experience with plenty of player-friendly features and excellent sounds available. There are features here to make recording drums a breeze and there are features here to make jamming away on your kit both fun and rewarding.
The frame (or ‘rack’) of the TT-16S is larger than the TT-12 models but is still eminently compact and portable. This kit sets up quickly and easily out of the box: the main rack is already built which is a time saver!
Once you’re set up and ready to go, you’ll find plenty of fun within the TT-16 module. There are over 450 top quality samples on board that span a range of styles and types. These are arranged into 26 complete preset kits: there are also 15 kits that can be edited to your own preference.
Jam along to 20 built in demo songs or take advantage of the unit’s Aux-in jack to connect your music playing device (phone, mp3 player etc) and play along with your favourite songs.
When you start playing, you’re notice the upgraded, fully responsive drum and cymbal pads. Each pad has ‘Dual Zone’ technology to allow multiple sounds from the same pad: snare can have ‘rimshot’ sounds, for example. Cymbals can also be ‘choked’ by hand for an altogether more realistic playing experience.
USB and MIDI connectivity is included to increase functionality significantly. Trigger separate outboard devices with your drums and record entire tracks of drums to your computer, all stereo panned as they are in your headphones!
Extra enhanced functions include a 3 band EQ section, two different reverb settings and editable drum sounds.
This TOURTECH TT-16S electric drum kit is a sophisticated unit full of pro-level features at a fantastically low price. Learning on a quality kit like this encourages you to play more and it’s also lots of fun! Recording sessions will also be a lot easier and more professional sounding with a digital kit like this: you can achieve a natural performance rather than a stiff, programmed one. All in all, there is something for every drummer with the great value TOURTECH TT-16S.
