EFNOTE 5X   e-drum-kit

Eine neue Marke. Eine lange Erfahrung.

Die digitalen EF NOTE edrums sind das Ergebnis der Bemühungen eines Teams von Musikern und Ingenieuren, die Produkte für ein führendes japanisches Team entwickelt haben. Jetzt nutzen sie ihr Fachwissen, um ein neues Abenteuer zu beginnen.
Eine neue Soundtechnologie, neue und innovative technische Lösungen und ein modernes kosmetisches Design machen den Gründer von EFNOTE stolz darauf, dass diese Modelle „ein neuer Standard für die nächste Generation“ sind.

Im Jahr 2018 beschloss eine Gruppe qualifizierter Ingenieure, die in den letzten 20 Jahren die Kategorie der elektronischen drums entwickelt und innoviert hatten, einen anderen Weg einzuschlagen. Ein fließender Ansatz für die Entwicklung elektronischer drums war erforderlich, nachdem man die Grenzen der Arbeit für einen führenden japanischen Musikinstrumentenhersteller gespürt hatte. Ein Ort, an dem sie die Beschränkungen der Kosten und der Massenproduktion aus dem Fenster werfen konnten.

A new brand. A long experience.

The EFNOTE digital drums are the result of the effort of a team of musicians and engineers that have been designed products for a leading Japanese team. Now they are using their expertise starting a new adventure. A new sound technology, new and innovative technical solutions and a modern cosmetic design are making the founder of EF NOTE proud to say that these models are “a new standard for the next generation”.
 
In 2018, a group of skilled engineers who had developed and innovated the electronic drum category for the last 20 years decided to pursue a different path. A fluid approach to developing electronic drums was needed, after feeling the limits of working for a leading Japanese musical instrument manufacturer. A place where they could throw the constraints of cost and mass production out the window.

EFNOTE WAS BORN
 

Das 10-TEILIGE EFNOTE 5X setzt mit seinem exzellenten Klang, den außergewöhnlichen Pads und einem noch nie da gewesenem Hardware-Design neue Standards. Das EFNOTE 5 ist eine absolute Weltneuheit - erlebe eine neue Dimension im E-Drum Sektor!

Für den überragend naturgetreuen Sound sorgen aufwendig produzierte Multilayer Samples. Jeder der 128 Werkssound besteht aus 127 Einzelsamples, wodurch eine außergewöhnlich hohe Dynamik erreicht wird. Die Sounds sind alle editierbar, für eigene Kreationen sind 83 User-Speicher vorhanden.

Das kompakte Sound Modul hat ein stabiles Metallgehäuse und wird über ein Touch Screen LC-Display bedient. Mit seinem übersichtlich strukturierten Menü ist selbst ungeübten Nutzern ein schneller Zugriff auf alle Funktionen und Einstellungen möglich. Die Sounds lassen sich stimmen (Tuning), abdämpfen (Muffling) und klangregeln (EQ). Außerdem hat man ein virtuelles Mischpult, über das sich die Sounds individuell in der Lautstärke regeln und beliebig auf die Ausgänge routen lassen.

Das integrierte Metronom und die Rhythm Box sind ideal zum Üben. Außerdem kann man Songs und Play-Alongs auch über Bluetooth ins Modul streamen. Das EFNOTE 5 Modul hat auch ein eingebautes USB Audio Interface, über das 8 Spuren digital zum Rechner übertragen werden können. Zusätzlich hat man 4 Analog-Ausgänge, das EFNOTE 5 eignet sich gleichermaßen für den Live- und den Studiobetrieb sowie für Unterrichtszwecke.

Snare, Tom Tom und Stand Tom haben hochwertige, 6-lagige Birkenkessel, sind mit Mesh Heads bespannt und mit jeweils drei Sensoren ausgestattet. Mit dieser Multi-Trigger Technologie wird eine einmalig hohe Sensibilität und äußerst präzise Ansprache gewährleistet. Zusätzlich verfügt die Snare über eine dritte Spielfläche. Dies ermöglicht eine 100% genaue Trennung zwischen Cross Stick und Rim Shot. Ein fehlerhaftes Auslösen der Trigger ist somit absolut ausgeschlossen. Die 16“ Bass Drum ist mit 2 Triggern bestückt und damit auch ideal für den Einsatz einer Doppelfußmaschine geeignet.

Die Cymbal Pads, auch die Hi-Hat, sind 360° - also von allen Seiten bespielbar. Somit ist eine Vorrichtung, die das Verdrehen der Becken verhindert, nicht mehr notwendig. Bei den Crash und Ride Cymbals handelt es sich generell um Triple Zone Pads, bei denen sowohl der Rand, die Fläche als auch die Glocke bespielt werden können. Außerdem verfügen alle Cymbal Pads über eine Choke Funktion zum manuellen Abstoppen.

Für ein akkurates und höchst sensibles Spielverhalten sorgt letztlich das innovative Hi-Hat Pedal, welches nicht über einen gewöhnlichen Schleifkontakt seine Position erkennt, sondern mit einem optischen Sensor arbeitet. Mit einem an dem Pedal angebrachtem Gewicht wird das Hi-Hat Top Cymbal imitiert und somit ein realistisches Spielgefühl erzeugt. Das EFFNOTE 5 wird mit doppelstrebigen Snare- und Beckenständern geliefert.
