Title:
ELECTRONIC PERCUSSION INSTRUMENT
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2018/043069
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
[Problem] To provide an electronic percussion instrument that allows for a performance similar to that of an acoustic cymbal choke. [Solution] In an electronic cymbal 1, the output of a musical sound is controlled in accordance with the results of detection from a strike sensor 3 when the strike sensor 3 detects a strike on a striking surface 2 (S8). While the musical sound is output, if a user touches the striking surface 2, an electrostatic capacity sensor 5 outputs an output value in accordance with the contact condition so that the musical sound is attenuated in accordance with the output value while being output (S4). Therefore, the user can attenuate the musical sound being output in accordance with the contact conditions on the striking surface 2, thereby silencing the musical sound by way of the action similar to that of the acoustic cymbal choke that is the action of touching the striking surface 2.
