Singular Sound Announces BeatBuddy Mini

BeatBuddy-MiniSingular Sound, makers of the popular BeatBuddy pedal-controlled drum machine, announced the BeatBuddy Mini, a new, smaller version of the drum machine / effects pedal.

The original BeatBuddy retails for about $300. The BeatBuddy Mini, which will retail for about $199, will have many of the features and functionality of the original pedal: full, hands-free, creative control of the beat. Musicians are able to insert fills, transition from verse to chorus, add accent hits, drum breaks and more — all with the “simple ease” of a guitar pedal format.

You can find a complete comparison of the original and mini BeatBuddy here.
