Featuring an all Birch 6-ply shell with a Solid Black Lacquer finish and bearing edges cut to a 45 degree angle on both sides with dual-layer mesh head. This allows the multi-sensor technology to capture even the subtlest responses; the ATV aDrum Artist Snare Drum not only looks like a real drum set, it plays like one. The Kick Drum has a Trigger Output on the shell for easy access and works great (but not limited to) with the aDrum Artist aD5.

Multiple Sensors:
With its multiple sensors in drums, abnormal hot spots that would usually cause loud obtrusions are brought to end giving you a smooth natural dynamic playing experience.

Maple Wood Side Rim:
The side rim features a beautiful contrast between the natural wood and the lacquer paint, and uses the maple material that's ideal for ATV's newly developed frequency-specific detection technology. The strike feel of wood and the side stick sound are perfectly matched to ensure great playability. Rim shot and side stick can be played separately without having to use a side stick button to switch between them as on previous systems, giving you much more freedom in your performance.

Realistic Drum Size:
The visual interpretation of the aDrum Series reflects the sound your ears hear. Giving you a realistic playing experience not only because of its striking feel of acoustic drums but of also its stylish looks thanks to the beautiful black high-gloss lacquered shells. The aDrum Series kit still maintain a compact size we love from electronic kits to adapt to home or studio spaces.

Built Like A Tank


These ATV Artist E-Drums are built like Tanks! I wasn't a fan of the piano black so I re-wrapped every drum in turquoise oyster. Taking them apart & putting them back together showed me the quality craftsmanship. The housing for the triggers is quite impressive. There is a bracket attached to each top lug. The top plate which houses the 3 cones is screwed to the top of the bracket. These 3 cones are triggered from the drum head. The bottom plate which houses the 3 piezo triggers is screwed to the bottom of the bracket. These 3 piezo triggers which sit directly below the cones trigger the rim. The way these plates are tightened down to the brackets is super solid. Unless you have some serious patience I wouldn't suggest taking these drums apart. I would put these ATV Artist E-Drums & Cymbals (all cymbals are 3-zones with a 360 degree playing surface) at the top of the E-Drum market at this point in E-Drum History. No need to repeat what the other reviewers have already said. You definitely will not be disappointed if you purchase anything ATV Artist Series.

The ideal electronic snare drum


I use this with my electronic drum set with my ATV aD5 module. This snare works so well, is sensitive, and is very responsive. And it's built tough, enough to last a long time. But the best and most unique thing about this snare is that you don't have to click the 'cross stick' button on the module, if you use the ATV aD5 module. It is designed so you just play without needing to do that, if you have the aD5. Hit the head, then a rimshot, then go into cross sticking without changing module settings. This makes it so much easier, and really a joy to play. The three piezo cones are spaced around the rim, so there's no mid head hot spot. I love everything about this snare.

Great sound E-Snare


The reason for purchasing the ATV is because the Roland PD-128 (used for my snare) has hot spotting and there is no way around that. So for for my style of playing , especially on the snare that was a big issue. The ATV have multiple triggers around the rim so, No "Hot Spotting" yay!! The side stick attachment works for cross sticking very well. If feels, looks and plays very close to an acoustic snare.
