View Full Version : Guitar Hero 4 Drum Set

05-14-2008, 02:54 AM

Courtesy of this month's Game Informer.

Instead of four pads, it has three low pads and two elevated cymbal pads. You can also activate star power at any time by crashing both cymbals at the same time.

I gotta say, I already like it more than the RB kit.

Oh, one more thing:

It's gonna be wireless out of the box. ^_^

Also, vocals and create-a-song are confirmed too. As well as songs from Van Halen, The Eagles, Sublime, and Linkin Park.

I like already better than the drumset for RB. Hopefully it works.

Create-a-song, eh? Sounds pretty cool. Drum pads look like they're made of play-doh and cymbals look like paper.

ermm... a drum set...its guitar hero not band hero... i might just get the game not the package like i did with the GH3

Based on the picture, I don't like the Hero drum set as much as RB's. Plus, Activision is just RIPPING off RB...they should have paid Harmonix more money and listened to their ideas...instead they are now just ripping them off.

I think the drum kit looks ugly as sin

Even though I do like the drums design, I just do not have enough room for both sets of drums. If the Guitar Hero IV (which is going to sound stupid now with this announcement) will work with Rock Band, I will trade in my Rock Band drum set and buy this. However, knowing Activision, they will not make it work with Rock Band and the Rock Band drums will not work with GHIV. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if they make where you have to use the mic they make.

Yes!! linkin Park (my fav band) will be in the game. As for the drums, I hope there not loud when you hit the notes. But the drums do look a bit better than Rock Bands.

well... red and green are symbols on Rock Band and Yellow are symbols on GH4. So I am guess these will not work?

No double bass pedal means no metal =(

And I have to agree that they are taking a strange turn if they are making a drum controller for a guitar game, it might be good to do something other than mindlessly strum for a few hours but they could just make it Band Hero or something.

it has been stated that they will have special tracks that are especially for drums for songs They are just aiming for a harder Rock band

Hopefully when you have to hit the symbols they are not just circles running down the screen. I hope that they will be more like half symbols running down the screen.

I hope of 3 things:

1) A stronger kick pedal, but easier to use.
2) Sort of like Wrestling Games, but GH4 have CAWS for Create a Song, if you catch my drift, in which people on the internet will post how to create songs such as "Number of the Beast" Thunderstruck" etc.
3) I hope you can change the tune of the guitar in Create a Song so you can have more effects.

I like the look of the new Drum Kit. Reminds me of the drum game from the arcades. Hopefully they don't have a loud, annoying sound like the RB drums or I won't get to play.
