SDRUM Strummable Drums™ From DigiTech®

Under new ownership, DigiTech® returns to production with its SDRUM Strummable Drums™, the first-ever intelligent drum machine for guitarists and bassists. Boasting studio-quality samples and five professional sounding drum kits and BeatScratch™ technology, SDRUM allows users to create drum patterns by simply strumming strings.

As a player scratches across guitar or bass strings, he or she “teaches” SDRUM a kick/snare pattern that defines a desired beat. Once that pattern is established, SDRUM then enhances and enriches the beat, resulting in a realistic accompanying drum part. From the five different kits, users are able to choose sounds appropriate to a broad variety of musical styles. Via the KICK and SNARE Pads, players can audition the various kits and tap in specific beats, while the GUITAR AUDITION Button enables the user to turn the drum output on or off while strumming.

Up to 36 songs can be stored in SDRUM, and the unit supports three different components – e.g. verse, chorus, bridge – for each that can be switched on in real-time to easily facilitate live performance and aid in composition and creativity. Additionally, JamSync™ functionality facilitates compatibility with JamMan® loopers, further boosting SDRUM’s capacity in concert, practice, and studio settings.

The compact SDRUM (5.25” x 3.15” x 2.3”) is similar in size to most compact effects units and fits easily on standard pedalboards. A sturdy metal chassis, robust footswitch, and four knobs (GROOVE/KIT, LEVEL, TEMPO, and HAT/RIDES) ensure that SDRUM is stage- and road-ready. 

Eliminating the need to sift through libraries of rhythm patterns in search of an appropriate match for individual songs and styles, SDRUM is the fastest way to go from a beat idea to a working drum track. Visit for more information.
