“Logitech’s premium guitar and drum controllers have made it easier for Guitar Hero gamers to get into the music with even more realism,” said Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech’s director of product marketing for gaming. “Now if you love to rock out on Wii, you’ve got the gear to match your level of commitment to the game.”
The Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller for Wii features a maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, and metal frets. It has a white finish with a glossy-black pick guard on a one-piece wood body. To help minimize audio distraction, the strum bar and fret buttons are built with a noise dampening design so you can focus on the music. To help you rack up points by tapping notes, the guitar controller also incorporates a touch-sensitive slider on the fret board.
The Logitech Wireless Drum Controller for Wii has three fully adjustable drum pads and two cymbal pads. Each piece can be positioned to best suit your style and reach. The quiet and responsive drum pads are designed to give a lively feel without distracting from the music.
The Logitech Wireless Drum Controller’s recessed rim design helps you score points and avoid accidental rim shots for better game play. To help you enjoy a durable, responsive drumming experience, the kick pedal uses a stainless steel surface and an adjustable spring.
Both the Guitar Controller and Drum Controller are licensed for Wii so all you have to do is snap the Wii Remote into the controllers. Both products also feature an analog stick for navigating menus.
The Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller for Wii and the Logitech Wireless Drum Controller for Wii are expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in October for a retail price of $199.99 (U.S.) and $229.99 (U.S.) respectively.
