Dream Theater began their mammoth "A Dramatic Tour Of Events" world trek in July 2011 with the final leg in South America taking place in August 2012.

BeatBuddy - The First Guitar Pedal Drum Machine

BeatBuddy: The First Guitar Pedal Drum Machine - Hands-free control of a beat through your amp. Insert fills, transition from verse to chorus, add accent hits. Easy to use!

It’s so much better playing music with a beat rather than playing by yourself, but drummers can be hard to find and drum kits are tough to carry around. Drum machines can be difficult to use, particularly during live performances, often requiring a mixer and table-top setting.

Enter BeatBuddy: the first guitar pedal drum machine. It’s durable and easy-to-use as a guitar pedal, providing full creative control. Insert fills, transition from verse to chorus, and add accent hits—all with a tap of your foot!
