Electronic drums have been around for a couple of decades now, and technological advances have improved both their sound and feel. But these high-tech marvels have typically come with one unacceptable feature—sticker shock! Leave it to the gear-heads at BEHRINGER to break this vicious cycle with highly affordable, great-sounding electronic kits that are as easy to play, as they are to transport and set up.

We know how much you love to play, so we designed our XD Series drum kits for fast and easy, tool-free setup. Just pull the kit out of the box, position the drum and cymbal pads the way you like 'em and plug in; it's just that simple. And when you're finished playing, just fold up the kit and stash it behind the couch or underneath the bed. Now your significant other will still respect you in the morning!

The way drums “feel” is one of the most important factors, especially for drummers who use electronic drums for practice and then return to an acoustic kit for live performance. So we gave our pads a natural rubber surface, which mimics the feel of real skins and minimises false triggering. All of our kits feature sturdy, extruded aluminium frames, which provide a solid foundation for the drum and cymbal pads. You'll really appreciate this added stability when you're rockin' out full-tilt.

Easy setup and feel are important, but how do they sound? Thanks to their vast libraries of top-notch studio and live drum, percussion and cymbal sounds, XD Series drums sound great! Whether you choose the ultra-compact XD60-LE or full-size XD60-USB with 110 sounds each, or opt for the XD70-USB with 735 sounds, you'll get professional, studio-grade sounds that will simply blow you away. And if that's still not enough, you can always use XD's MIDI capability to build your own library via external MIDI sound modules. Plus you can program and store your favourite kits for instant recall.

Acoustic drums sound fantastic, but can cause real volume issues, especially in a small club or when you need to practice at home late at night. XD Series drum kits provide the ideal solution, allowing you to control the volume and still satisfy your desire to rock out. You can practice with the built-in metronome or play along with your favourite tunes thanks to the convenient Aux inputs and USB connectivity. Output options abound including headphones (your neighbours will thank you), stereo and mono Main Outs, plus USB/MIDI for hooking up external sound modules.
