    Comments about Korg Wavedrum Mini:

    I got this as the Stupid Deal of the Day, couldn't pass it up. It's lots of fun to make some noise on, but has some limitations which would make using it in a performance setting less than ideal. I invited my neighbor over to check it out, he's a very picky drummer who doesn't like electronic percussion much. He was having a blast! It's really quite dynamic and responsive, and the clip-on trigger is a super cool tool. I might get some batteries in this thing and my microcube amp and do some busking with a buddy of mine, but trying to use it in a band situation would be a stretch.

    Being a drummer, it let's me have fun, get creative,and not bug others. I bought it on a whim during a STOD. Only regret is not getting two. With two and the remote sensors I could of had a mini drum set with me anywhere and played anytime.

    More toy than musical instrument.

    Pros

    • Easy To Use

    Cons

    • Not Functional
    • Not Gig Worthy Cheap
    • Poor Quality
    • Sound Choices Aren't Grea
    • Sounds Poor

    Best Uses

      Comments about Korg Wavedrum Mini:

      I wanted to add this to my live rig (guitar player) to cover things
      Ike hand claps, DJ scratch, other hand drums. Too many sounds missing. This is more toy than musical instrument. it's too cheaply made to take to gigs, the sounds are poor and I returned it. Unhappy this was advertised as a real instrument as I had to eat shipping (the "free" shipping") when I returned it.

      Don't waste your time. Not worth the stupid deal price.

      Cool Drum

      Cons

        Best Uses

        Comments about Korg Wavedrum Mini:

        I purchased this for jamming with friends on acoustic instruments when no drum kit is available. The numerous voices imitate almost any drum or percussive sound you can think of.
        Striking the pad in various way varies the sound.
        The clip can be attached to other items and sounds attached to it to create a mini kit. Battery power allows for usage where no power is available.

            Comments about Korg Wavedrum Mini:

            I hadn't actually seen the product in person. I thought maybe it had some ethnic percussion; I probably misunderstood. The concept of being able to use any surface as the drum is cool, but the sounds are useless for my music. Maybe if you're a rapper you could use this. I couldn't. I generally like Korg products. I had a Karma for years. It was a good price however.

              Comments about Korg Wavedrum Mini:

              Ordered with the idea of using as a trigger for aux sounds to use while playing out. Not really designed for this use. Its really cool and has some sweet sounds, but not functional as a play out tool. Studio use or practice, even jamming around with your buddies it might be a very functional thing, but just seems like another gadget or toy to me. Quality and workmanship is awesome though.

                  Comments about Korg Wavedrum Mini:

                  This unit came in perfect, brand new in the box condition. As always, Musicians Friend/UPS fails to disappoint.

                  One issue came up early when noodling with the buttons. An error code E1 started blinking...ohhh no. I looked at the owners manual and it says, SEND THE UNIT TO KORG.

                  I checked all the various websites and forums. One thread referred to a 2gb Micro SD card attached to the PCB. One blogger stated that removing this card will reset the E1 Error Message.

                  So, I tried it....and it worked.

                  The repair took 20 minutes. Unplug from the wall. Unscrew the fasteners, pop the back off. Remove the PCB, take out the memory chip by pressing slightly inward to release it. Put, it back in. Put everything back like it was, and it should fire back up ready to use. Again, this worked for me. I hope this helps.

                  I'm loving this little unit, great sounds to improv around. If you have another looper it really expands the possiblities with guitar accompaniment. I have it running through a Fender Gdec3 15. Perfect for the DIY drummer.
