Pearl Drums is well known for making one of the best drum kits, snares and hardware in the world. But the company is not only about acoustic instruments. They also make fine electronic products such as the E-Pro Live hybrik drum sets which were a big success on the market. Now the time has come to present their newest idea – MalletStation  Adjustable Range Electronic Mallet Controller.

It’s a big thing for every mallet player. Doesn’t matter if you are just a beginner or a professional musician. MalletStation is here to help you develop and enjoy playing. It has many useful functions, such as the adjustable low note range function allows you to set the fundamental diatonic note of the instrument to what you need—low D xylophone? No problem! The malletSTATION is powered exclusively by Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, and Android devices through USB Bus Power, allowing performance almost anywhere with minimal set-up and equipment.

Designed in collaboration with Keith McMillen Instruments, malletSTATION’s tech-forward design features KMI’s Smart Fabric Sensor technology allowing the silicone bar material to have an extremely sensitive, natural response, including mallet dampening and aftertouch control, and all can be easily tailored to your individual playing style.
