GEWA G5 – This is for Performers!

today6 July, 2021


After the successful market launch of the GEWA Drum Workstation G9 in 2020, GEWA music presents a new kit in its Digital Drums range of products.

“This is for Performers“ says it all. The GEWA G5 targets the advanced drummer who wants to focus on his performance in a simplified way rather than the technical refinements of a digital drum kit like the GEWA Drum Workstation G9.

The GEWA G5 PRO BS5 will be available as a 5-piece kit in a stunning Black Sparkle finish. The shell sizes are: 10×5″, 12×5″, 14×5″ for the toms, 14×5″ snare drum and 18×14″ bass drum.

The GEWA G-Series cymbal set – MADE IN GERMANY – is also used in the G5 series. This includes 2x 14″ crashes, 1x 18″ ride, and 1x 14″ Hi-hat. All cymbals, even the Hi-hat, have three zones and can be choked at the edge.

On the hardware side, GEWA relies on a specially developed stand solution. This includes 3x tom/cymbal stands, Hi-hat, snare, and module stands. A matching bass drum pedal is available separately.

In the GEWA G5 module, the touchscreen has been replaced by hardware buttons and a modern OLED display. This makes operation particularly intuitive and all important functions are directly available. It is a simplified approached in comparison to the GEWA Drum Workstation G9 which is targeted to the professional drummers.

The technological base is the same as for of GEWA G9. This means that no compromises have been made in terms of sound and trigger behavior with the GEWA G5. The G5 uses the exact same sound library and is 100% compatible with the GEWA G9.

“The G5 module also offers many of the G9s’ great features such as the 3D Sonic Image room samples, USB audio recording, Bluetooth audio + MIDI, third-party pad compatibility, 4 effect channels and many other great features” states GEWA.

The GEWA G5 PRO BS5 will be available at the selected GEWA Digital Drums resellers in August. Pre-orders are accepted by July 9th, 2021.


SRP: € 3.890,00  (incl. 19% VAT – Germany)
