ATV no longer makes the Aframe so we can longer get them new. We still get a lot of inquiries for them.
We saw the Aframe for the first time at Winter NAMM 2017. We played on it and talked to ATV engineers that designed it. To say this is different is an understatement. Its an electronic hand drum with tons of creative ways to play it. It gives the user a lot of range of sounds. There are built in effects and a state of the art battery system so you can stay charged up and mobile. With this instrument its better to talk about how unique and new it is than specs and features. If you can see uses for a unique new instrument in your drum arsenal then get one on order today. Here is a short video to see it in action. ATV has a bunch of videos up on Youtube now and there are people playing them.
