EFNOTE 7

The Power of Full Scale

Electronic Drums EFNOTE 7

Snare drum stand and cymbal stands are optional.

Hi-hat stand and kick pedal are not included.

The Power of Synergy

EFNOTE 7 gives drummers a whole new experience and exhilaration with the overwhelmingly realistic touch of full-scale shells/cymbals, and the brilliant sound remastered to match them perfectly.

The Authentic Presence

20 x 15" kick drum and 14 x 5.5" snare drum with white sparkle finishes that shine brightly on stage. 14” real hi-hats and unparalleled 20" ride cymbal...

Everything is for fascinating you and your audiences.

The Beauty of Proportion

The depth-caliber ratio is precisely designed to evoke the beauty of sound and appearance.

Specially customized the 11 x 8" rack tom and the 15 x 15" floor tom are one of the results of EFNOTE's uncompromising pursuit.

The Expandability for Customized Setup

EFNOTE drums are most beautifully expandable thanks to not only perfect pad compatibility but also excellent design uniformity.

Visit the Customize page for customized setup examples.

Describing Textures of Vintage Drums

Good old collector's drum sets are newly recorded for EFNOTE 7, are mastered carefully with minimal processing. The Tru-Aco sound technology brings out the full texture and original vividness of the sounds.

Evolving ELISE Sensing Chip

The ELISE sensing technology is improved day by day, for capturing fine rolls, strokes from soft touches to extra-hard, and slight nuances of footwork.

Advanced Sensing Structure

The sensor design optimized based on many years of experiences. It evens out the sensitivity and conveys the player's intention and dynamics without deterioration, to support perfect playabliity.

Touch and feel the new experience.

The 20" Ride Was Born!

The ultimate comfort that the electronic cymbals have finally reached.

The 20" diameter provides slow wobbling of edge and the quick response of bow/cup, and the uneven smooth surface that simulates a hammered cymbal makes sticks bounce naturally.

The Finest Hi-Hat Cymbals

Thanks to the remarkable Tru-Motion technology with multi-optical-sensor (patent pending), ultra-high precision gap detection and unlimited free movement of top/bottom cymbals are realized, which were difficult with conventional electronic drums.

The Unwavering Confidence

The 20 x 15" kick drum props the whole drum set on stage by completely absorbing impacts of the beater throughout the large head.

At the same time, its quietness is much improved over the conservative design with a small pad on the head.

14" - More Solid, More Delicate

The new 14 x 5.5" snare drum with exclusively optimized multi-sensor responds to delicate touches.

Moreover, 10 lugs allow for high head tension and larger side rims ensure unprecedented comfort.

Experience the True Low-Rebound

The unique rebound of the acoustic floor tom that may stop sticks, achieved by the new 15 x 15" floor tom.

We have achieved both the realistic low-rebound that was difficult to achieve with 14" or less and stable sensing.
