5. Configure Your Drum Kit

Now that the sensors are updated, charged and connected all that is left to do is configure your drum kit. In this latest version of the Freedrum App you can configure your kit in many different ways. Placing the drums and cymbals where you want gives you the chance to play left or right-handed and personalise your experience.
