Quite strange and very small handheld drum machine. Seven non-velocity sensitive pads and seven sounds (well, actually eight if you count the "Sonyy!!" sample in one of the preset patterns). Eight preset patterns with adjustable tempo, no user patterns. Works only with two AA size batteries. Has a very low level output (microphone level approximately), but on the other hand the same batteries seem to last forever. Lo-Fi sounds for a man with a tight budget! =)

There also seems to be another Sony Drumpad, a blue one, with user patterns and propably different sounds. Dunno anything about this one.

Comments About the Sounds:
Quite Lo-Fi drum samples, but somehow appealing. The Hi-Hat is actually very good if you wanna have a dirty, compressed sounding Hi-Hat! =)

(Thanks to UralTEK for this info.)
