BopPad Reached Kickstarter Campaign Goal In Just Over 3 Days
Keith McMillen Instruments (KMI) started a Kickstarter campaign for BopPad. Its goal of $35,000 was reached in just over 3 days.
BopPad has a wide dynamic range and measures strike velocity from the softest hand drumming to the most hard-hitting drumsticks blasts. A robust tuned elastomer surface covers a 10” circle of a patented Smart Sensor Fabric to give you traditional feel and a new dimension of expressivity.

The BopPad Editor software will be available as a desktop download and iOS app, but for ultimate accessibility they’re also developing a WebMIDI app so you can design presets for BopPad from a web browser.
Smart Sensor Technology
BopPad takes advantage of Smart Sensor Fabric Technology from BeBop Sensors, a leading supplier of fabric sensors & winner of the 2015 Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation award.
At the core of BopPad is a single large sensor made from the 8th generation of BeBop’s Smart Sensor fabric. BeBop develops sensors for OEM clients in Automotive, Sports & Fitness, Safety and Consumer Wellness.
BopPad can also be used as a conventional practice pad with a realistic feel and portable, lightweight design.
Currently, BopPad is available with early bird discounted pricing on Kickstarter set at $199.
