Wesley Chau has been the driving force behind Drop The Beat – a wearable drum kit that aims to allow drummers to become more involved with live performances – as opposed to sitting not so quietly at the back.

The main components of the vest are neoprene, velcro and piezo sensors. Each drum pad has a sensor inside it and can be moved anywhere on the vest depending on preference and performance intent.
