Finger drum w/ mad zach

Very well explained. Thanks!

Phenomenal expressive fun

We got the Midi Fighter 3D and the Twister, both black on black. The programmable buttons have amazing color, smooth touch, and produce great results. Our daughter, Summer 'Drummer' also has a great time turning rainy days to rainbow days with these remarkable devices, sized perfectly, responsive for sonic expression through multi-dimension. The videos are great for kicking off ideas with techniques and insights. Get yours today!
