Korg's Wavedrum Dynamic Percussion Synthesizer has returned! With a combination of powerful
synthesis and deep expressiveness, the Wavedrum is an instrument that can open new doors for your
playing. Here's how to get started!
Connect and power up
Mount the Wavedrum securely to any standard snare drum stand, or set on any level surface.
Make sure the POWER button is turned off, and connect the included power supply.
Connect ¼" cable(s) to the Wavedrum's outputs, or connect headphones to the headphone jack.
Press the POWER button, and the Wavedrum will load the sounds selected for Live Mode.
Hit it!!
Adjusting the Wavedrum
Your Wavedrum has a replaceable 10-inch drum head, whose tightness will affect its response, just like an acoustic drum.
Here's how to set up the Wavedrum for the best playing experience:
Using the included drum key (or any other standard drum key), adjust the 5 points on the rim to tighten/loosen the
head to your liking.
If replacing the head, be careful while separating the top and bottom sections of the Wavedrum, which are
connected and cannot be completely separated.
For stability, and to extend the life of your drum head, follow a star-shaped adjustment pattern, rather than just
moving clockwise from point to point.
Test the head (including the center pressure sensor) with various sounds to ensure optimal playability.
If the head pressure needs adjustment, turn the center screw on the bottom of the Wavedrum, and/or calibrate
the head and pressure sensors as described in the Owner's Manual.

    • Don’t store anything heavy on top of the Wavedrum, or let it rest upside-down for long periods of time. This can affect the Wavedrum’s playability. • Remember that Wavedrum uses internal transducers, which can be sensitive enough to cause feedback when placed near loud monitors or PA speakers.
