Virtual drum solos on the go

Portable drum device plays with the iPod

Discovery Communications

If there's any musical instrument that might challenge the unhealthy affection for guitars among Cravers, it would be virtual drums. Whether they be of the roll-up or the fingertip variety, percussion seems to be a favorite instrumental variety. So what could be better than a set that plays with an iPod?

The "Mini miJam Drums" don't come with a traditional set of heads but are nevertheless "equipped with a selection of sound effects and background rhythms, including bass, snare, cymbals and the hi-hat" that can be played along with an MP3 player or computer. This 1-pound portable device even includes a set of speakers, which are essential if you insist on embarrassing yourself in public.
