Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

If you're a veteran tub thumper and haven't secured your own BumChum, you're too late, with 2010's product of the year superseded by the much less interesting sounding BC Gigster.

Session drummer JR Robinson likes playing with it...

The launch of the BumChum last year left drummers excited by the possibility of monitoring their bottom end thump through the magic of bone conduction, via the discrete throne-mounted unit.

Well progress is inevitable, and, Porter Davies, the people behind the tool under the drummers, have now launched the BC Gigster, which promises the same tactile response while dropping a few features which shouldn't be missed by most jobbing percussionists. Including the BumChum moniker.

Porter and Davies also promise optional extras including an "extra low throne base plus other accessories".

Best of all, perhaps, they've dropped the price to £599.

Meaning more drummers will be able to, as pro drummer John ‘JR’ Robinson puts it, eliminate a subwoofer on stage thus eliminating stage volume."

Oh, and in case you're wondering the BC stands for ... it's bone conduction. ®
