Drum Sparx uses any standard XLR microphone so the user can interact with the device using any type of sound they choose. Anything from boom boom boom to actual clicking sounds can be used with the Drum Sparx.
All the real magic happens inside the Drum Sparx. We take the user created sound and analize it to determine how the Drum Sparx will function.
We made the Drum Sparx super friendly to use with almost any type of standard PA gear. Once the brains of the system has processed the information it will send out the appropriate signal.
The Drum Sparx PRO is integrated with a beautiful full color touch screen GUI. Make adjustments to any of your settings simply with the touch of your finger. While our enrty models utilize control knobs for your settings.
Playing drums since he was a teenager, Risty Bryce knew at a young age that music was the only thing that would give him freedom from reality and the “spark” that would forever change his life. He was playing in local bands, writing songs, recording music, playing shows, and loving every minute of it. But just when things seemed to be perfect, a paralyzing issue was about to change his life. That issue was a disease similar to MS. As the disease began to steal the use of his legs from him, he eventually decided to back off from playing and focus on his diagnosis.
Over the next 10 years he would be more consumed with doctors and the hope of a way to reverse the diagnosis resulting in him almost completely abandoning drumming altogether. Not being able to play his drums with the use of his legs killed his spirit, and in turn, made him feel inadequate at drumming. What once was as easy as breathing was now the hardest thing for him to do. Just as he was about to call it quits on playing drums, a few changes brought him to ask the question, “Why can’t I find a way to play the bass drum without the use of my legs?”
Watch the video to learn a little more about Drum Sparx and how it works as well as see it being used. Risty Bryce is featured in this news story by Siouxland News KMEG in Sioux City Iowa. He had only been using the Drum Sparx for about one month at the time of this video.
