Pearl EM-53HB e/MERGE Hybrid Electronic Drum Kit

Manufacturer: Pearl
e/MERGE is about change, and change in the e-drum market has been way overdue. When we looked closely at every aspect of the current e-drumming experience with KORG, together we knew we could make a dramatic difference. And that difference begins with the all new e/MERGE module.

Simple yet elegant in design, the e/MERGE EM-MDL1 module features a full library of high definition, natural, organic and minimally processed acoustic Pearl drums. We then added the very best electronic, world, orchestral and specialty percussion sounds from KORG’s vast library of pristine quality samples. But, the module is only part of the change.

There are three key elements that separate e/MERGE from anything that has come before. The all new EM-MDL1 e/MERGE Module, KORG’s amazing Wave Trigger Technology and Pearl’s acoustic-like PUREtouch Electronic Pads all combine to create an exceptional e-drumming experience.

e/MERGE blends the dynamics of Wave Trigger Technology with the e/MERGE Module Powered by KORG, and the sensitivity of the PUREtouch Pad System to create an exceptional e-drumming experience.

e/Merge is available in two configurations, e/Hybrid and e/Traditional. The e/Traditional features an electronic bass drum pad and stand while the e/Hybrid features an 18" acoustic bass drum with an internal version of the EMKCB kick pad.
