I use it for 1 month, I also own a roland HandSonic HPD10 and an electronic drum.

The HandSonic and Wavedrum are very different, though complementary. I use the HandSonic more like a drumkit, the sounds are very clean, very clear, very roland. For Wavedrum, it seems more an acoustic intrument that needs treatment, the dynamic is much greater than the HandSonic is not easy to mix. It feels like a mix between acoustic instruments and a synthesizer.

Like many, the hit is very pleasant, there are basically four areas of games.
The ai:
Varies according to its strike force, in general a different sound is triggered qd were claps very loudly.

The edge of the skin:
bah it feels natural sound!

The center:
You can play with pressure. (As on the hpd).

By tapping on the top, it can trigger another sound.

I speak of impressions playing because perceived support four distinct sounds:
PCM 2, 2 by mike. (See spec).

In short it is quite expressive, although not yet perceived as a real.

Certain preset its really very nice, and we discover new ways to play, even on the presets that have been playing quite often.

There grossomodo 40% preset classic djembe, snare, congas ... and the rest of preset synth-style, it helps to create ambiences very peculiar.

I would do without hesitation that choice, I was expecting this kind of buying the perceived HandSonic, and finally not at all. It is more agreeable to the djembe, congas, instruments "simple" on the HandSonic Wavedrum that offers fewer expressions and suffers from its too "square". For the cons HandSonic allows more of his playing 3 instruments at the same time, to the samba, or perceived set / drumkit is clearly more suitable. Basically the Wavedrum is intrusment HandSonic when in fact 2 or 3. I love both, I do not know which one I would choose if I had to have one.

Caution is however a trick to turn the volume x2. Then the volume is an adequate level without being "very strong" that I have no problem.
