  • New GEWA-DW G9 E-Drum Workstation

    Basically, it's been developed by GEWA and DW, to be introduced at the Frankfurt Musik Messe in April.
    https://www.bonedo.de/artikel/einzel...-dw-drums.html

    translated:
    "At the Frankfurt Musikmesse 2018, Gewa Drums will present its novelty in the e-drum segment. For some time now there are rumors, now at least we already know the name and got some more information about the Gewa. The module is called G9 Workstation, according to Gewa it was tinkered and developed in the department GEWA Electronics over three years. The hardware and the drum components are to come from the distribution partner DW Drums.
    The Gewa describes the G9 with the following attributes (Quote Presse-News) "A unique operating concept, outstanding storage and connectivity options, a feel that is in no way inferior to the acoustic drum set, one of Drum Workshop (DW) specially developed hardware, other components of the new brand DWe and a software solution that allows the drummer to select from a variety of different sounds online, are just some of the features that the GEWA Drum Workstation G9 fundamentally different from previously known. "
    How many set-ups there will be, how the purchase prices are designed and whether the G9 works with pads and pedals from other manufacturers, we will find out everything at the Frankfurt Musikmesse for you.
    The G9 will be exhibited at Musikmesse 2018 in Hall 9.0, Booth C80 and presented in daily product demonstrations."

      All I can tell from the article and pictures is the product has carbon fiber side panels. As to what this product is (module, playing surfaces, features, sounds, storage capacity, interfaces, compatibility, expandability, etc.), who knows? I looked on various Gewa Music and third party web sites, and could not find any details. Gewa Music seems more like a distributor than a developer, but I don't read German so perhaps I missed their development efforts. Here are the Gewa web sites I checked:

            I must admit, like Alan, my reaction to vague press is about the same. Real products are promoted with details, specifications, demonstrations, etc. When a product is announced as this one seems to be, I pretty much consider it vaporware.

              Yea, it's not vapor, but they are obviously hiding its true capabilities. If this thing sells, it will probably be purely due to the DW hardware. I'm just kind of hoping it ends up being killer acoustic e-kit offerings I can add to my Rolands and Mimic.

                Actually, yes please! The e-drum world has quite a few next generation modules now, but where things continue lacking is playing surfaces. Currently, the only next generation option is ATV and what they're offering is quite limited. If DW offered a full range of e-drum and e-cymbal pads in proper sizes, that would be fantastic! I'm not holding my breath with hope on this, though. :-)

                  BTW, I believe that at the current state of things, the company that will bring an affordable but good drum pad/cymbal line - would get a lot of money immediately

                    Problem is, lots of people talk and dream but never buy things, once its time to buy, they are gone, telling it's expensive when they see new things, when they have more then 6000$ or more gear worth in edrum electronic and are not willing to even sell them.

                        It'd be hilarious if you were correct, and the only thing DW provided was a stand. lol

                              What they say on www.gewaelectronics.com (as viewed by the search engines, translated from German)
                              The next chapter of digital drum technology - GEWA Drum Workstation G9 - A new concept in all aspects. Playability, usability, sounds and look. Presentation: Musikmesse Frankfurt 2018
                              These are bold assertions, hope we will be surprised.

                              That said, looks like GEWA made some researches recently involving positional sensing:

                              Percussion instrument and method for detecting an attack position of a percussion instrument
