Logitech has always been expanding its wide range of products and items for both business as well as home use. The company now adds two brand new offerings to its gaming section with the Logitech Wireless Guitar and Drum Controllers. Both these new rocking items are specially fashioned for the Wii console. The Guitar and Drum controllers are licensed by Activision and possess high-quality materials similar to that of their real counterparts.
The instruments are compatible with the Guitar Hero titles including the latest Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero. Setting up the controllers are a as easy as pie. They are both licensed for the Wii with the system’s remote easily snapping into the products. Gamers can navigate through the menu via the instruments analog stick.
The Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller sports a stunning maple neck, complete with rosewood fingerboard and metal frets. Players can espy a vibrant white finish with a shiny black pick guard. All this is featured on a one-piece contoured wood body. The strum bar and fret buttons incorporate a noise dampening design which helps reduce audio distractions. Those integral points can be acquired through the touch-sensitive slider located on the fret board on the neck.
“Logitech’s premium guitar and drum controllers have made it easier for Guitar Hero gamers to get into the music with even more realism. Now if you love to rock out on Wii, you’ve got the gear to match your level of commitment to the game,” commented Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech’s director of product marketing for gaming.
The other offering from the company comes in the form of Logitech Wireless Drum Controller for the Wii. The instrument comes loaded with three fully adjustable drum pads and two cymbal pads. The positions of pads can be adjusted according to the comfort of the drummer. Players will also be able to experience an authentic feel as the pads are responsive and quiet. The drum possesses a recessed-rim design which reduces accidental rim shots and enables gamers to easily stack up those points.
A stainless steel surface and adjustable spring adorns the kick pedal of the drum kit controller. All these attributes offer players a highly responsive, durable and authentic drumming experience. The Wireless Drum Controller boasts of easy and quick set up. When done, players can fold back the instrument in a matter of seconds. This way the controller can easily be stored away anywhere.
