Senstroke, the first connected object for drummers presented at The NAMM Show in California.
Created by Jerome Dron, Redison is a French startup company that transforms the drumming market with the Senstroke innovation: connected sensors attached to the drumsticks and linked by Bluetooth to the smartphone that allow drummers to play at any time. Thousands of players are already using it all over the world.
In order to conquer faster the global music market and launch the official commercialization of Senstroke in the US (in stores and on Amazon), Redison announces its participation at NAMM, the largest show of musical products in the United States. It is the perfect opportunity for the company to introduce its new learning mode integrated into the application and to unveil Senspad, a new generation of connected drums.
Senstroke, the first connected object approved by professional drummers
On the market since 2019, Senstroke is the first connected solution for drummers, capable of capturing and identically reproducing every drumstick’s stroke and rebound and the associated footwork. Using Bluetooth technology and its free application (iOS & Android), the sensors do not require any specific equipment, apart from a pair of drumsticks, to which they are easily attached.
Senstroke is an innovative musical instrument, unique in the world, intended for both professionals and beginners wishing to practice, record themselves or play drums wherever they like, thanks to this intuitive and easy to use tool. The sound quality and the rendering of the recordings offer musicians the possibility of continuously improving their work. By associating angle and stroke velocity, the sensors transform each impact into MIDI notes matching the sound expected by the musician. This note is then processed by the application to generate in real-time the sound of the virtual element stricken.
A few months after its launch, numerous users have integrated Senstroke to their daily musical life: professional drummers, music professors, musical partner schools and the general public, thanks to a large distribution network in Europe, in large music stores (Thomann, Woodbrass, La Baguetterie, Gear4Music etc…).
