Where have you been all my life?

Comments about Singular Sound BeatBuddy:

Great product! Stellar Customer Service! This baby is built sturdily. It gets a lot of hits from me and has never even hinted at missing a beat. I'm almost 62 and had just about given up on my playing days. I bought this pedal as a curiosity item, and boy, has it renewed my interest in playing again. I even have built up callouses again like when I was 20! It's a tad spendy, but find a way to get one. One thing to note - To get a full range sound, don't try to play it through a regular amp. Find something with a good frequency range, like an old stereo...seriously. What I have done for this bad boy is to buy a Harbinger APS-15 15" powered PA speaker with an on-board mixer and 5-band eq. I got it online from GC for $149 and it mates perfectly with the BeatBuddy. I can't say enough about my BeatBuddy, so I'll shut up now and go play.

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Functional
  • Good Quality
  • Great Versatility
  • Improves Sound

Cons

  • Poor Loop Variety
  • Significant Time To Learn

Best Uses

  • Click Track Substitute
  • Live Drummer Replacement

Comments about Singular Sound BeatBuddy:

I am a worship leader at a contemporary style church. I've been without a live drummer for almost a year now, and the BeatBuddy has been a life saver! It's incredibly realistic and consistent sounding.

It has a large library of drum loops, however I'd estimate that only about 50% of them are usable for regular songs. And many of the usable loops are so similar to each other that they're really not distinguishable. I wish it had less 'repeats' and a few more usable unique rhythms. Other than that, I have no complaints. It's a fantastic tool!

Comments about Singular Sound BeatBuddy:

Like this allot but it will take a while to learn how to properly use it. Everything is well documented. Web user forums and manufacturer web sites are all very helpful. I emailed for technical assistance and got response same day. The company seems to be very customer service oriented. Construction is very good.

Comments about Singular Sound BeatBuddy:

I use my BeatBuddy for jamming and composing the blues. The BeatBuddy has the sounds of live drummers that kick your creative juices into overdrive. The BeatBuddy inspires you to play better than ever before. Hook up to a home stereo or a P.A. and it sounds awesome.

    Comments about Singular Sound BeatBuddy:

    Love it!!! I just wish it had a better memory then a little card. Specially for the cost of it. But it is very fun right out of the box. It likes to move around a lot. I don't like using Velcro on my pedals. So I will have to figure something to help. The sound is very good and love the metal !!!!!!!!

      Comments about Singular Sound BeatBuddy:

      I use this in my little studio. Have not had it very long. I really love it. It's a little pricey. I know it's new ,but I worry a little that the memory card might go bad. They have a free download to fix it if your card is corrupt. I have had good cards from other things that I have losses everything and then in this case I would have to buy another card ,but maybe it lasts a long time. They make more drum beats for you to add but they want more money and more money. It already costs a lot, so I really don't want to spend more money even though they look like they have a good selection. But again after the pedal and they foot switch that's a lot of money and if you keep buying there updated drum beats it could end up costing a lot. I do love it.

          I can do fills and turnarounds easily; plus it gives you slight variations in the fills.
