Makers4Good Announces Gift Ideas for Drummers

New technology for drummers and all profits are donated to charity.

Palo Alto, CA, November 11, 2019 --( Need a gift idea for a drummer? Musicians love their equipment and technology, and drummers are no different. Backbeater is a popular tool for measuring a drummer’s tempo, and its $39 price is perfect for many gift lists.

Backbeater, manufactured by Makers4Good, is a small device that clips to a snare drum and smartphone to display the actual tempo being played. Using the display screen from smartphones, the free app for Backbeater is a useful tool in practice or live performance situations.

Backbeater was created to help quiet the debate between drummers and other band members on tempo speed. With an accurate read out of the actual speed at which a drummer is playing, the drummer can lead the band with more precision. It uses an averaging window of beats that can be adjusted by the user to determine the tempo read out.

For a more luxurious gift, the $59 Backbeater Deluxe includes a mounting bracket to position the smartphone on a nearby cymbal or drum stand for easy visibility. With the ability to save songs and rearrange set lists, Backbeater is a game changer for tech-friendly drummers.

Makers4Good, manufacturers of Backbeater, donates all profits from the sales of the drum tempo monitor to Percussive Arts Society, an international organization for drummers and percussionists. Backbeater is available for ordering at Amazon and with worldwide shipping available.
