E-Drums, what’s out there?
Choosing between an electronic drum kit and the acoustic set can be difficult. If your decision is based on noise and space, then the electronic drum set might be a better option for you. Here is some advice on how to pick the perfect electronic drum set for you.
Technology is evolving and advancing every day, and we want to make sure you get the drum kit you love. Checking out reviews on products is also important. This website Best Electronic Drum Sets has great reviews on some electronic drum kits and some great advice. There are many factors to consider before purchasing an electronic drum kit. These factors include price, space and size, sound and volume, feeling and sound quality, and durability.
Price is very important in making a decision on the best electronic drum kit for you. Determining your price range can help narrow down the choices you have. Something also to consider is that the kit you choose is ready to play right out of the box. Not all drum kits include everything you need in order to start playing, thus you will need to purchase few things to play the drum kit. This option may become costly because those necessary accessories will add up in the end.
Space is another important factor when deciding the best drum kit for you. Before you start shopping, you have to determine how much space you have available for your kit. Depending on your living situation not all electronic drum kits will work. A lot of the high-end electronic drum kits could have a larger or similar footprint to an acoustic set. At my church, our praise band uses an electronic drum because of its size and portability since they need to setup and tear down on a weekly basis and stores the equipment in a small room.
Sound is one of the most important aspects to consider in your decision. One of the major reasons for going with an electronic drum kit over an acoustic set is noise. Many think that all electronic drum sets are quiet but that is not true. The kick pad with pedal is usually the noisiest part of the electronic drum kit and most kits have loud kick pads. The drum pads on the electronic drum set come in different types that can help with volume. There are four different categories of pads: mesh-headed, closed-cell foam and silicone, rubber over steel, and acoustic-headed with dampening inside. The pad you want can help you narrow down the kit for you, but keep in mind that the type of pad can affect the feeling and sound quality.
Feeling and sound quality of the drum kit is a factor that can be subjective. You need to make sure the feeling of the pads and cymbals fit your playing style. Same goes for the sound quality. We all have different opinions about how the drum kit should sound. However, the sound quality that the manufacturer uses on their modules can also help you decide. Everyone wants a drum kit that sounds natural, something that sounds as close to the real thing.
Finally, there is durability of the drum set. Sometimes there is a reason why the electronic drum kit is at a lower price point. In order to get it to that price, the manufacturer had to compensate with its quality and durability. I believe most people would want some level of durability so that what you invested for this drum kit doesn’t go to waster after playing it a few times.
There are other factors that were not mentioned that you should look into and consider before purchasing a drum kit, but I thought these were few of the most important aspects to consider. I hope this helps you find the perfect electronic drum kit!
