Pacific Digital to Intro DrumXtreme DX-150, Its Deluxe USB Digital Drum Set for PCs at NAMM Summer-Session Show; Like Original DrumXtreme, It Features

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 16, 2003-- Additional pad and foot pedal add new capabilities for the experienced drummer

Pacific Digital Corporation will introduce DrumXtreme(TM) DX-150, its deluxe USB digital drum set for PCs and laptops, on Friday, July 18, at the NAMM show in Nashville. Like the original DrumXtreme, the DX-150 is a compact, electronic drum system in a "rack" setup. It has all the features of the original -- and it has an additional pad and kick pedal that add new capabilities for the experienced drummer. The new foot pedal adds hi-hat open/close control. The new pad provides a customizable percussion trigger (toms, cow-bell) or cymbal trigger (for example, ride, crash, splash or China).

The DrumXtreme DX-150 features professional-quality sound that can be played full-blast through the computer's sound card -- or through headphones for privacy. Plug-and-play DrumXtreme DX-150 plugs into a PC's USB port, is easy to assemble, and sets up or folds down in minutes. Set up, it measures 41-inches high, 22.5-inches deep and 32-inches wide; folded, it measures 33-inches high, 6.5-inches deep and 32-inches wide.

DrumXtreme DX-150 comes complete with six drum pads, two kick-pedals, a rack/stand, drumsticks, cables and a DX-Box audio host. It features one-cable USB connectivity and -- since it plays through a PC -- no power plug, batteries or additional speakers are needed. It includes a CD software tutorial with three training videos, a play-along four-level drum game, exercises, an interface to select from 14 different drum sound banks (with over 130 usable sound samples), and a "tone effect" feature that helps beginners develop snare, tom, hi-hat, and crash and ride skills. It also includes full documentation and a CD with pre-recorded play-a-long scores. DrumXtreme DX-150 is available now at an MSRP of $399.

"DrumXtreme DX-150 has features that experienced drummers want," said Tony Tate, Pacific Digital's vice president, sales and marketing. "It's also great for beginners because they can start with the features they are comfortable with, and use the more advanced features as their skills grow. Our new distributor, Harris Musical Products, thinks it will become standard equipment in recording and lesson studios across the country."

DrumXtreme DX-150 will be distributed by Harris Musical Products (www.picksbythepound.com). A data sheet and photo of DrumXtreme DX-150 are available at www.PacificDigital.com.
