Hand a chance to try out the wavedrum global. They also had a handsonic but it was the previous version, the hpf-15.
The handsonic is a laid out more logically, Separate pads, separate sounds. Easy top access sound banks. Made to use with hands, not sticks / mallets. The samples were lacking to my ears.
Wavedrum not intuitive at all. Great sample sounds.
Very difficult to try these out. The store knew next to nothing about their own inventory. Nice guys but this is what drives people to the internet.
I will need to make another field trip or two before I get a real feeling for these devices.
