Conga-Drums — Here is one of our first basic kits, the Conga. We’ve used this kit since day-1 since it is a very simple construction, with only one sample per instrument. Yet, it shows off the basic functionality of Jambe really well. Use it with hands for a nice response, or try it with sticks for some crazy quick playback, that is impossible to do with a normal Conga!
Handpan — This is a really nice sounding handpan kit.
Rock-Kit — Our standard full drum kit for rockin’ out. Easy to play and modify into a custom kit.
Kora — This kit was created by John Worthington, from Daniel Berkman’s Kora. It shows how a stringed instrument can be such fun to have in a portable electronic drum.
Pate-Drums — This kit was created from some wooden drums on the Cook Islands, called Pate’. The variable in the drums is not the pitch, as we have in our western drums, but in the cadence of the hits. You can get really close with Jambe, since we have such rapid playback response on pad hits.
Snare-Drum — Try this snare only kit, with a lot of different samples on the pads, so you get slightly different sounds wherever you play on the drum surface.
Udu — An African Udu, made portable with Jambe. Great sounds when played with larger sticks.
Taiko-Large-Drum — These kits are really fun to play. As you probably know, taiko drums are not easy to move around and setup, but with these kits in your Jambe, you’ll have the most portable taiko drums ever!!!
