Looking to start up an iPhone or iPod Touch-based band? Here’s the latest musical instrument to make its way to Apple’s portable wonder-device.

Seung yi Lee’s Drum Meister lets you use your fingertips to play drum sounds on little tiny pads that look just like their real-world counterparts. The app includes sampled sounds of a variety of snares, cymbals, a tom and a nice kick drum for that extra thump – 10 drums in all, and all on screen at the same time. The drums support multi-touch and you can slide your fingers across multiple drums to quickly play a riff. And since it’s a true polyphonic sampled drum kit, you can pound on ’em all you want without the sounds cutting off.

One of the coolest things that Drum Meister lets you do is rearrange the position of the drums to suit your personal style and finger positions – plus the positions of the drums actually influences the position of the sounds with a 3D surround effect. It’s really slick if you’re listening through a pair of headphones or plugged into an amplifier.

You can even set one of the cymbals or the kick drum to be activated by a shake of your iPhone. Drum Meister also supports live recording of sessions and comes loaded with a 25 pre-recorded tracks for your enjoyment. No word on any online-sharing of tracks, but hopefully that’ll come in the near future as many iPhone music apps now have this feature.

But enough of my yakkin’. Here’s a video clip of this awesome application in action:

Drum Meister is available now over at the iTunes App Store for $1.99 (USD), a whole lot cheaper than an actual set of drums – and a whole lot quieter, especially if you play them through headphones.
