e/MERGE is about change, and change in the e-drum market has been way overdue. Pearl Drums has teamed up with KORG to create an all-new electronic-hybrid drum kit loaded with capabilities that are sure to impress any drummer.

There are three key elements that separate e/MERGE from anything that has come before. The all new 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.

MDL1 Module: The Key to Countless Possibilities
Simple yet elegant in design, the e/MERGE MDL1 module features a full library of high definition, natural, organic and minimally processed acoustic Pearl drums. Add to that the very best electronic, world, orchestral and specialty percussion sounds from KORG's vast library of pristine quality samples.

KORG Wave Trigger Technology: Faster than the Speed of Sound
Wave Trigger Technology is fast. As fast as audio. Faster than anything simply trigger based. This speed adds a realism to the playing experience never before available to the e-drummer. Wave Trigger Technology uses parallel processing of your character and your sound and seamlessly layers it with high definition samples of real Pearl acoustic drums to create an end result that is as much a reflection of you as with any acoustic performance. With WTT, sample layers are smoothed, latency is imperceivable, and sensitivity is on a different dimension from anything that has come before.

PUREtouch Electronic Pads: Real Response
The patent pending PUREtouch Electronic Pads were constructed by Pearl and KORG engineers with six layers of material that work together to create the most natural feel of any electronic pad available. Combined with the WAVE TRIGGER TECHNOLOGY, for the first time ever, your choice of stick will impact the sound of your electronic kit. Every area of the snare drum head responds like an acoustic drum from the center to the edge. You can also affect the feel by changing the head tension. If your preference is for a tighter feel, simply tighten the head. Two separate rim triggers are perfectly positioned for cross stick and rim shots, and the snare drum's 14" diameter makes this feel as natural as any acoustic drum.

PUREtouch Cymbal Pack
Each e/MERGE kit includes a PUREtouch Electronic Cymbal pack consisting of an 18" three zone Ride (bell, bow and edge), 15" two zone Crash (bow and edge), and 14" two zone Hi-hats (bow and edge). PUREtouch Crash and Ride Cymbals feature a multi-layer construction encapsulated in rubber with a playing action similar to that of acoustic cymbals, but with a slightly softer feel for controlled sound volume. PUREtouch cymbals have a patent pending feature, based upon frequency, that blends the edge and bow sounds consistent with where you strike the cymbal. Most electronic cymbals include a choke feature that cuts off the sound when you grab the switch located under the cymbal, but the patent pending natural choke function of PUREtouch Cymbals eliminates the sound and instantaneously triggers the natural sympathetic harmonic ring inherent to choking real acoustic cymbals.

Bass Drum
The e/HYBRID kit configuration (EM54HB) features an 18" acoustic bass drum with an internal version of the EMKCB kick pad. Both pad styles feature a red, front mounted LED light that can be controlled through the MDL1 sound module.
