EFNOTE 7: Full-Scale POWER
EFNOTE DRUMS uncompromising pursuit to offer the most realistic sounding electronic drums while retaining the playability of an acoustic set delivers the beauty of sound, appearance and authentic presence on stage and in the studio with EFNOTE 7. With over 20 years of R&D from the world’s best electronic drum engineers, EFNOTE 7 gives drummers a whole new experience with the overwhelmingly realistic touch of full-scale drum components, with a brilliant drum sound library remastered to match them perfectly.
Collector’s and Vintage Drums Tru-Aco™ – Recorded and Re-mastered to Perfection
The EFNOTE 7 comes with meticulously recorded collector’s drum sets and have been mastered carefully with minimal processing. The Tru-Aco™ sound technology brings out the full texture and life of classics from the most coveted collectors’ sets, based on Gretsch®, Ludwig®, Slingerland®, Yamaha®, Noble & Cooley®, Zildjian®, Sabian®, Meinl® and more.
EFNOTE 7, Technology for musicians at its finest: Perfect Playability
The EFNOTE engineers employed the Ever-Evolving ELISE™ Sensing Chip technology for EFNOTE 7, which improves day by day, for capturing fine rolls and soft strokes to triple forte, and nuanced footwork. EFNOTE 7’s Advanced Sensing Structure optimizes the sensory design to even out the sensitivity and convey the player’s intention and dynamics without deterioration. Thanks to the remarkable Tru-Motion™ multi-optical-sensor technology (patent pending), ultra-high precision gap detection and unlimited free movement of top/bottom cymbals and hi-hats are the new standard in electronic drums. The result is perfect playability.
EFNOTE 7 Drums full scale collectors’ dream – Synergy, Authenticity and Proportion
The EFNOTE 7 sparkles with authenticity, offering a 20 x 15″ kick drum and 14 x 5.5″ snare drum with a smooth, white glitter finish that shines brightly on stage. 14” real hi-hats, 15 x 15″ floor tom with “True Rebound” and an unparalleled 20″ ride cymbal.
Feeling and hearing is believing, and drummers will experience “True Low-Rebound”, a unique rebound of the acoustic floor tom that deadens stick strokes, and is achieved by the new 15 x 15″ floor tom. The EFNOTE 7’s depth-caliber ratio was precisely designed to create synergy between sound, sight and feel. EFNOTE’s uncompromising pursuit of this resulted in a customized 11 x 8″ rack tom and the 15 x 15″ floor tom.
The new 14 x 5.5″ snare drum’s added multi-sensors are exclusively optimized to respond to your most dynamic touch. 10 lugs also allow for high head tension and larger side rims to ensure unprecedented comfort.
The Ultimate 20″ Ride diameter produces a slow wobble toward the edge while having quick response at the bow/cup zones. This cymbal is special and has a natural bounce that just feels great!
