  • EF Note

    Looks like we’ve got another edrum manufacturer in the mix, and like ATV, it’s made up of former Roland employees. I saw a Facebook post from NAMM that mentioned the new EF Note company, and after doing a bit of googling, I found this press release about the company’s North American distribution deal. Have a look: https://artesia-pro.com/artesia-ef-note/

    I’d imagine we’ll learn more about their offerings once NAMM hits full speed this weekend. Should be interesting!

            So anyone found a video of how it sounds. Specs mean nothing as we know if it doesn’t sound right. Still exciting that there is a new player. The more the merrier
            Roland TD30 module on TD20 kit SD3 with various kits. Pearl Masters Kit, Yamaha 9000RC original natural wood finish. Cymbals from Zildgian Pasite and Sabian. Loads of percussion bits. Cubase and Wavelab always current versions.

              From their website:
              In 2018, skilled engineers with a 20-year career who felt the limits of product development at a major electronic musical instrument manufacturer in Japan, gathered together pursuing flexible ideas that are not tied to cost, and the non-logical attraction of musical instruments.
              I love the phrasing.

                EF Note? I'm getting the vibe that those cymbals are made at the same factory ATV uses.

                Not sure I like grey rubber but I understand they had to differentiate on looks.

                Launching with mid and high-end modules though, great specifications, looks 100% promising at this stage! But yes, as always, we need to hear it first.

                  Looking forward to check the module's sounds and also know if is compatible with other brand's pads (couldn't find this information on their website)....

                    Module looks interesting - let's hope it's not proprietary in some way.

                      The hi-hat on the EF-Note 5 model appears to use a 6 pin output.

                        Interesting, I hope they have designed a retainer / clip to hold that PS/2 connector as they are not robust in the slightest!

                          Good catch. From the footnote in the brochure this is just a prototype.

                          Perhaps more importantly, why do they need a 6-pin connector? That hints at multiple sensors in the hi hat.

                              They're losing me already with proprietary connectors, and I haven't even heard it yet.
