ION announced yesterday that everyone’s favorite premium Rock Band drumset is getting an upgrade, and will officially be Rock Band 3 Pro-compatible. Now dubbed the ION Drum Rocker Pro Official Premium Drum Set, the Drum Rocker Pro will be available for PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii.
The biggest change from the existing Drum Rock is that the Drum Rock Pro adds the Drum Rocker Pro Pedal, a professional-grade electronic kick drum pedal. The Pro Pedal has a steel base plate, all-metal construction, dual-chain drive, adjustable beater, rubber trigger assembly, and adjustable spring assembly. The Drum Rocker Pro Pedal is included with Drum Rocker Pro, it is also available separately for existing Drum Rocker, Drum Rocker Core, and Rock Band drum set owners.
The Drum Rocker Pro also includes everything the original Drum Rocker included: four drum and three cymbal pads and a fully configurable metal drum rack. The drum and cymbal pads are the same super-quiet, highly responsive pads from the original.
The Drum Rocker Pro will be available Holiday 2010, coinciding with the release of Rock Band 3. Pricing has not yet been announced.
It sounds amazing! Now, if I can just get ION to send me one, I would love to test it out for the site!
