Electronic Drum Kit Information

Electric drum kits are a realistic alternative to acoustic drums, giving users flexibility, control and variable volume level. Electronic sets allow different sounds to be assigned to any given pad giving drummers nearly unlimited potential for many different drum sounds.

Advantages of an Electric Drum Kit

The modern electronic drum kit has several advantages over the conventional acoustic kit:

  • The electric drum kit and cymbals can produce as much or as little noise as you would like them to. With the addition of headphones, no one will be able to hear you practice. This makes these electric drum kits useful for people that live in close proximity to others, or for professionals looking to have the accurate monitoring headphones can provide.

  • Full electric drum sets take up less space than a conventional kit and can be packed down if necessary. This is perfect for people concerned about space at home, or the gigging musician.

  • The majority of electronic drum kits have built in play along songs and metronomes, meaning you have a head start when it comes to practising.

  • You have control over what your drum kit sounds like, making it easy to play in a variety of styles with just one kit. Some electronic sets even let you edit the sounds or upload your own!

  • Some electronic drum kits have very realistic acoustic drum sounds. This does depend on your budget however, as more expensive kits tend to have more realistic sounds.
