Default Handsonic 10 vs Wavedrum

Hi All,

I was thinking of getting some accoustic congas untill I came accross the Handsonic, then I bumped into the Wavedrum.

Does anyone have these or used them? Which one is better and which would you recommend?

I don't know a whole lot about them or about playing percussion other than tapping on any surface that'll make a sound.

What I want is to be able to add live percussion to my tracks.

Default Re Wavedrum


I was looking for a single compact unit that would help me practice for the Samba Brazilian drumming I have just started. I am a beginner drummer that used to have a full kit but never used it.

I also looked at the Roland Handsonic but then came accross the Wavedrum. Some 10 years ago this unit cost in excess of 3,000 in the UK (seen a second hand one for sale for an amount in excess of that even). Now its 399 in the UK and I have had one for 3 days and can't keep my hands off it.

It has a real drum head (which you can tighten/loosen) rather than the rubber of the Handsonic and uses 24bit PCM sounds vs the 16bit Roland sounds. It behaves exactly in the same way as a drum head and you hear your hand, stick, brush etc exactly as it is meant to. It has significant (and quite complicated) levels of editing all aspects of the sounds so you can tune the sounds to how you want them.

Unhestitatingly recommend this - it will make a drummer of you - it is so infectious. Well done Korg!
