Raspberry Pi and Pimoroni Piano HAT have found a new musical companion!

With the Pimoroni Drum HAT you can play music in Python, control software drum synths on your Pi, take control of hardware drum machines, or just build it into an elaborate drum-controlled project!

This HAT comes with 8 finger-sized capacitive touch sensor drum pads. Each pad on Drum HAT can be individually watched in Python and hooked up to whatever mad-cap contraption or project you can imagine.

The Drum HAT is compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, Zero, B+, and A+ (any Pi with a 2x20 connector) and comes fully assembled with a treasure trove of examples to get you started. 

Pimoroni designed the Drum HAT and Piano HAT to work harmoniously on the same Pi! All you need is a little creative wiring or the help of a Pimoroni Black HAT Hacke3r.

For all you Pro's wanting to take this a step further, you can also make your Drum HAT output regular MIDI commands with a USB to MIDI adapter and take charge of your hardware synth gear.

Features Include:

  • 8 touch sensitive buttons
  • 8 LEDs (let them light automatically, or take control with Python)
  • Works with Piano HAT

Head on over to the Pimoroni Drum HAT GitHub repository to find a Python library, examples for PyGame and Python MIDI and more!

Product Dimensions: 65.0mm x 56.5mm x 7.0mm / 2.6" x 2.2" x 0.3"
