Gear Code:

This electronic drum kit is great for beginners. It comes in a big bag that includes all the pieces, plus a pair of drum sticks, headphones and a stool. If the drum sticks break, we kindly ask you to buy a new pair for the next person who borrows the kit. A manual with instructions on how to assemble the kit is in the bag too. We recommend that you place a rug under the kit, as the two parts where you'll place your feet will slip on the floor otherwise.

Keys & Synths

Miditech Midi Controller

Gear Code:

MC01

+ 353 1 6744888

This might look like a keyboard, but it is in fact a midi controller. The main difference between the two is that a midi controller is just a set of keys and knobs that receive midi information when connected to a computer or another device. Hence, if you play it on its own it will make no sound. Make sure you have a computer to connect the controller to, and a software to edit the sounds you'll be making.

This midi controller was donated by Gavin.
