“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Handy Drums Mallets do not require a complicated instruction manual to use. Over 50 samplers and smart algorithms work in the background to power a seamless experience behind the simple user interface.

Access all of the essential functions intuitively.


Each drum and cymbal was sampled at multiple dynamic levels to ensure the instrument’s fullest dynamic range when played back. Handy Drums Mallets were recorded at up to 10 dynamic levels.


Up to 10 samples per dynamic level

Our ear instantly knows when a computer plays the same sample repeatedly (such as a drum roll). This is because when a real human hits a drum, each stroke that follows is always slightly different from the previous one, regardless of how great a drummer they are.

Each Handy Drum Mallets drum and cymbal has been sampled numerous times at every dynamic level. During playback, a different sample is triggered each time, ensuring that no sample is repeated sequentially.


All Handy Drums samples were recorded in 24bit wav format for the finest resolution and sound quality.

To achieve larger-than-life yet completely natural-sounding drums, every step of the sampling process is just as important. Starting with choosing the right drum for the job, tuning them, placing them and the microphones in the right place, every aspect of the process was carefully thought out before even a single note was played.

The instrument and room are then captured using the highest-quality mics, preamps, and converters to preserve every fine detail.

Sound so natural; you can almost touch them.

Handy Drums sound like an actual drumset being played right in front of you in a room instead of a bunch of individual drums sounding in their own separate spaces.

We achieved this realism by recording the full breadth of acoustic drums and their natural ambiance, then meticulously editing and mixing them in post-production.
