You don’t need an iPod to make these drumsticks work, but that ubiquitous name is in the product title anyway. The iPod Digital Drumsticks are motion-activated and have installed six background rhythms if you want to just go with the flow. If you’re really into banging out the bit, however, access the different buttons that allow you to approximate snare, bass, hi-hat, and crash cymbal effects. You might find the headphones overkill at that point.
Since this product comes to us from Hammacher Schlemmer, it has a sort of real-world quality to it,, including a control module that you can attach to your belt, for easy transport from gig to gig.
Want a pair? They’re just US$29.95.
