    WaveDrumMini is awesome!

    Amazing instrument from Korg. This drum is so playable, easy to transport, and perfect for performance art.

    Worth it?

    The sound is great but... No tempo control for presets? No midi? I feel as though I paid too much for it.

    It fits in the nooks and crannies...

    I am not a drummer, but play one in my home studio. I think I'm pretty good at table drumming, so when I saw the Wavedrum Mini I thought I had found the "drum" that was right for me.

    First, I don't think that this will work to meet your stand-alone drum needs. The pad and mic clip are velocity sensitive. Which means, in order to get different tones, you have to strike the pad ad different speeds. I found this very difficult to do when trying to do a traditional backbeat.

    As well, some of the tones are kind of toy like and not really great for the traditional rock or blues work that I was trying to accomplish.

    Here's where it's great. If you're working with drum loops and you want to add a little more human feel, this is for you. When working with loops, I found this adds a less mechanical feel. I have found myself adding 5 to 7 additional tracks of percussion that really brings life to my recording.

    It's a great accent piece... not a great center piece. Therefore... 3 stars.
