    MOPLAY SMART DRUM D3 – Systemized Electrical Drum & Rhythm Game

    For those that are passionate about drumming and the heart-pumping rhythm that comes with this exciting musical activity, it can be hard to start learning and improving your drumming skills. Obviously, the main reason is not in the difficulty of drumming itself, but instead, it is actually directly related to all of the potential noise that you’ll be doing when drumming, which, not only can be quite annoying and disturbing to the rest of your household, including other family members or roommates, but also to all of your close-by neighbors, of course. As such, instead of going with one of the typical drum sets that you’d normally find on the market and which are also commonly known for their loud drumming noises, consider getting yourself the MOPLAY SMART DRUM D3.

    The MOPLAY SMART DRUM D3 is a systemized electrical drum set that works like a rhythm game with SMART software installments to teach users about drumming.

    Working together with a Companion App that teaches you about the basics of drumming with interactive lessons recorded in 7 different languages while also featuring popular songs from various genres like Pop, Rock, and more, this revolutionary smart electrical drumming set ultimately allows users to master the art of drumming by simply playing a rhythm game via the App, which works in a somewhat similar way to how the renowned Guitar Hero games work.

    The main difference between this systemized smart electrical drum and the Guitar Hero games is that, unlike the Guitar Hero series, you won’t be pressing any buttons on a plastic guitar. Instead, you’ll actually get to play real drums by using drumsticks, and as such, you’ll ultimately get a much more immersive and realistic feeling of how drumming works.

    Finally, since the set’s rhythm game is color based (just like your typical Guitar Hero games are), from the time you’re able to get a grip on how to catch that moment of the color bar touching the red line, you are all set to becoming a master of drums.

    So, let’s have a more detailed look at the MOPLAY SMART DRUM D3 and check out exactly how this smart electrical drumming set is designed to work.

    DESIGN & SPECS

    Starting with the size of this smart electrical drumming set, the MOPLAY SMART DRUM D3 comes at a reasonably compact size, taking up a reasonably small space, as the entire set only takes up an area of 47.24 inches by 47.24 inches.

    Then, for the set’s design, this smart electrical drumming set features a simple, sleek, and very minimalist design throughout its entire body, which features a Black Matte Finish that gives it a nice and discrete look, thus allowing the set to easily blend in with the rest of the room.

    Additionally, the MOPLAY SMART DRUM D3 also features a very solid construction, as the entire set is mainly made of Rubber and Silicone (used as the set’s outer materials) as well as Metal (which is used for the set’s internal frames).

    Moreover, for keeping this electrical drumming set perfectly in place, we have a Specialized Drumming Mat, which not helps to keep the entire drumming set stabilized, but also helps to absorb the vibration of its several drumming components.

    Now, for the set’s actual components. This smart electrical drumming set is composed by a set of four (x4) Black Mesh Pads that are used as the set’s dedicated high-end drums, but without the loud noises that acoustic drumming sets are know for.

    The set also features Cymbals that already come pre-configured with Noise-Balanced Sounds. (On a side note, know that you can also get this electrical drumming set with White Mesh Pads, instead of Black ones).

    In addition, this electrical drumming set also includes a pair of high-end Acoustic Drum Pedals, which, once again, also come accompanied by a secondary Black Mesh Pad that’s used specifically for the set’s pedals.

    Thanks to set’s pre-configured Noise-Balanced Sounds from its Cymbals as well as thanks to its Acoustic Drum Pedals, the MOPLAY SMART DRUM D3 can easily bring you a realistic drumming experience.

    The set also comes with a Adjustable Tablet Stand, which is where you’ll install your Smartphone or Tablet to keep an eye on the MOPlay Smart Drum App.

    Last but not least, since this smart electrical drumming set also comes together with a pair of pre-packaged earbuds, you can conveniently drum all night long, even on quiet nights, and all of that without you ever having to worry about waking up and upsetting your family or neighbors and ending up listening to any potential noise complaints.

    SET UP / INSTALLATION

    Now, for setting up your MOPLAY SMART DRUM D3, know that unlike your typical accoustic drumming sets, which, in all honesty, take FOREVER to set up and install, this smart electrical drum set is much, much simpler to set up, which means that installing the whole set on any room is a fairly easy task.

    Embedded below, you can find MOPLAY’s Official Video Guide for the entire set’s installation process:

    Summing up the main steps of the set’s set-up process, you just have to Assemble the set’s Kickpad, then Adjust the set’s Pedal to stabilize it, which is then followed by Adjusting its Hammer Angle and Length, Assembling the set’s Cymbal, Assembling the set’s dedicated Tablet Stand (which is where you’ll be watching and following the MOPlay Smart Drum App), set up the set’s Cabling to its Pad, and finally end up by Changing the Kick Pedal Mode to which ever one you prefer.

    HOW DOES IT WORK?

    So, as said before, the MOPLAY SMART DRUM D3 is a straightforward and practical systemized electrical drum that’s designed to work as a rhythm game based on SMART software installments.

    Basically, the set’s Snares, Highs, Lows, and Floor Toms are designed with Color-Based Mesh Pads, for which those same colors will also correspond to the set’s Smart Drumming Software, which is none other than its Smartphone Companion App (meaning the MOPlay Smart Drum App).

    As such, after selecting the song that you would like to play, a Color Bar for Rhythm appears on your device’s screen (can be either a Smartphone or Tablet), for which the MOPlay Smart Drum App will then start dropping Color-Coded Bars on your device’s screen with the upcoming rocking tunes from your selected song.

    Then, all you have to do is to beat the set’s Color-Based Mesh Pads to play according to the beats and rhythm of the falling Color-Coded Bars that you see on your device’s screen. Overall, this Drumming App is extremely easy to understand visually as well as to follow, which ultimately makes it easy for users of all drumming backgrounds to learn the sense of beat and rhythm, even including those with no past drumming experience.

    With all that said, by using this practical but straightforward system, anyone that sits in front of this smart electrical drumming set for the very first time can easily visualize how drumming is meant to work, which then will eventually allow them to master the 68 basic patterns and highly complicated fill-ins that come with drumming.

    THE SMARTPHONE COMPANION APP – The MOPlay Smart Drum App

    Now, for the set’s Smartphone Companion App, called the MOPlay Smart Drum App, which is available for iOS, Android, and Windows. Note that the MOPLAY SMART DRUM D3 already comes with a free 3-Year Subscription Coupon included with each purchase for its Specialized Drumming App.

    Via the MOPlay Smart Drum App, users are offered an already prepared set of Interactive Lessons that already come pre-recorded in 7 different languages (including English, Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and Korean) so that they can practice a total of 68 different Basic Beat Patterns.

    Thanks to that, complicated fill-ins are not an issue when playing drums with this electrical drumming set.

    Furthermore, after choosing what song you want to play, users can also choose between 3 different Drumming Difficulties (Easy, Medium, and Hard), and they can also choose between 4 different Drumming Speeds (1X,  2X, 4X, and 8X).

    What’s even cooler is that after playing your song of choice on this awesome electrical drumming set, you can check your ranking and scores via the App’s Live Ranking System. Thanks to the App’s built-in Drumming Scoring & Ranking System, not only you’re allowed to check your drumming skills objectively with live rankings, but for each new song-level that you go through with higher difficulties, you’ll also be able to see your level of improvement.

    Because of this Live Drumming Scoring & Ranking System, you’ll always be challenged to improve your drumming skills, which obviously is a great feature for any competitive drummers out there, as this allows them to compete live with other drummers on regular basis.

    And what’s even better about this Live Ranking System is that if users ever want to reach higher levels, they’re also able to take unlimited 1:1 lessons by simply interacting with online lesson instructors.

    Lastly, for times where you’re looking to choose a song, the MOPlay Smart Drum App will also feature Monthly Song Updates, for which after its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter is concluded, MOPlay promises to offer you 10 brand-new songs every single month.
