The best drum app of them all.


Please fix the glitches.😿 It takes the awesomeness out of app. This is the best drum app of them all! Wear it with pride.

Great Update

F$&@kin' nicknames

Really like the integration of my music library to play along to. Like the the ability to change the pitch. The layout is more playable than some others with a little practice. I used to play drums a lot long ago. Still haven't gotten a good hi-hat open close sound though, maybe that's me. Would be interested to see a drum app that forgoes the traditional drum set up in favor of one more geared for playing beats with the fingers; maybe place the hi-hat and ride cymbal to be played by the same finger.

Best Drum App!


I have tried dozens of the drum apps, and this one is by far the best. As a pro drummer, I am especially happy with the sound quality and selection of available drum kits to choose from. Other drum apps include a few different drums, this one gives you more than 20. I like how easy it is to move your fingers around the set. If you are a drummer, or want to be one, definitely get this app.
