Guitar Hero 5 official drum kit revealed

Chris Davies - Jul 16, 2009

Hot on the heels of Logitech’s Guitar Hero drum kit, unveiled yesterday, come the first images of the official redesigned Guitar Hero 5 set.  No details are accompanying the two images, but Activision have released a new video showing gameplay in the upcoming title.

Functionally the two sets will likely do much the same, each offering twin cymbals and three drum heads, together with a kick pedal.  Although Activision are yet to confirm pricing, we’d expect the GH5 kit to be cheaper than Logitech’s version, which will no doubt attempt to capitalize on its positioning flexibility, premium hardware and the convenience of being able to fold it flat.

Guitar Hero 5 itself is expected to launch in September, so we should know more details by then.  The game is available for preorder for PS2, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360, complete with a guitar controller.
