"...ONYX has released DjembePad 1.0, their realistic digital drum simulator and practice pad exclusively for iPad. Goatskin is replaced by a high-resolution IPS display, and the ancient and modern worlds meet. Loudness and tone are user controlled, and sounds include: slap, tone, bass, woodblock, and cowbell. An optional metronome helps aspiring percussionists master the rhythms of West Africa....

...Traditional djembe drums tend to be large and cumbersome, and cost upwards of $100. They're not ideal for taking to a party or a friend's house for a jam session, and they might not make the amateur drummer very popular with their neighbors. Bringing the primal energies of tribal drums to the digital world, DjembePad offers a realistic sound and feel, but the iPad weighs just 1.5 pounds and is 0.5 inch thin. One can practice anywhere, anytime, at any volume or with headphones. The app produces a rich natural sound with subtle variation, which the iPad's internal speaker cannot accurately reproduce. For the power and punch of a real drum external speakers or headphones are recommended..."

"Drumming and drum circles are great fun," commented developer Eugene Klein. "Now with Djembe Pad anyone with an iPad can experience the magic."

Marc, how did you miss this one?

From the site:

"Tired of skin irritation when drumming? Then get some Anti-Monkey Butt Powder! This incredible sweat absorber is ideal for any butt busting activities where legs rubbing together can cause the situation whimsically referred to as "Monkey Butt" which can occur during heaving drumming sessions. Apply the powder inside underwear, footwear, armpits and any other areas prone to chafing. It makes a great gag gift (which is also very practical) for any drummer! You can also use your Anti Monkey Butt Powder for any other activities such as truck driving, motorcycling, bicycling, horse back riding, and sports. Indoors or outdoors, work or play, or on occasions when you sit on your butt all day, don't let your buns get red, use Anti Monkey Butt Powder instead!"

;)

and this!
