Backbeater Musical Tempo Monitoring System Now on Kickstarter!

We are excited to announce the launch of our latest Kickstarter project: Backbeater! Backbeater is the best and most affordable tempo monitoring system for drummers. Attach our Backbeater sensor to your snare drum, open our app on your smartphone (iOS version available now, Android version coming as part of the campaign), and start playing. Backbeater will help you play a consistent, steady beat--every time.

Over at, we have been bringing Backbeater to drummers for several years. Now we have an all-new sensor design, and we're bringing support to Android phones for the first time. Our goal was to design a product that would correctly monitor tempo, display it clearly, and make it easy to use in the playing environments of modern drummers. By optimizing your mobile device’s large screen and interface, we’ve managed to make what we believe is a much better, clearer, cheaper, more sensitive, and more versatile product than those previously available.

Best of all, as is our way, we donate 100% of the profits from Backbeater sales to musical charities around the world. Back our campaign today! You get a great tempo monitoring system, and you help us help music educators and their students. What's not to like?
