Electronic drums are basically electronic musical instruments, mainly designed to replace an ordinary acoustic drum set. The main advantages of these types of drums are that they produce a richer sound, can be more precise and versatile. If you do not want to spend money on an ordinary drum set, but still want the same drum set with all the same capabilities as an acoustic set, you can opt for an electronic set. It has also many advantages compared to the traditional acoustic sets.
One of the famous electronic drums sets available today is the Roland acoustic kit. It has been known to produce sounds that were similar to that produced by a classical acoustic set at very affordable prices. It also has a number of special effects and it is quite affordable. It is quite different from other kits in its design as it produces a real wood-synthesized sound. Some of the effects it comes with are the split/half hit sustain and echo, the "super rebound" sound, the "bounce reverb", the "ultra bounce", the "space down compression" and much more.
The electronic drum set available today is made by the famous music producer, Kevin Costner. The company that produces this type of kit is called e-ktics. There are many models of the Roland electric set available, all of which have been changed and upgraded since their introduction. The most popular among them is the " Command Mesh " TD 07 " Echo Park " TD-08 " command mesh acoustic sets. All of these models of the command mesh acoustic sets are quite popular with professional drummers and music producers.
Although there are several different ways of listening to the best electronic drum sets, the most convenient way is to use headphones so that you can easily listen to the music without having to worry about disturbing anybody else in the room. Bands like the e-ktics have microphones that allow you to hear the music that you are listening to. The advantage of using these types of headphones is that you will not need to stand still to view the recording and you can move around and move the headphones from one place to another. You also get the best electronic drum sets that have the feature of recording directly to a PC. In some of the models, you can even connect your iPod to the system and download the recorded tracks directly to your iPod.
Another important aspect of an electronic drum set is the drum throne. The Yamaha DSI hundred-page drum throne has a top that is covered with mesh heads. The main function of these mesh heads is to make the hi-hat and cymbals to stand apart from the rest of the drum sound. The cymbals and the hi-hat are generally the most prominent feature of any electronic drum set, and so they must be located on the drum throne.
An acoustic drum set usually comes with five tom-tom pads and one metronome. The metronome helps a player to maintain the right tempo for a particular song or a specific rhythm. Some drummers prefer to do their own tuning. This can be done by tuning the tom-toms manually. For a pianist who can master their hands and fingers, there is an option to buy an interactive digital tuner.
One other important difference between acoustic drums and a hybrid kit is that a hybrid kit usually contains two different kinds of cymbals. It may come as a single set of twelve cymbals, six cabinets, or eight cabinets, or it could be a set of four tom-toms and one cymbal. Most of the time, a professional drummer would choose to use the double set of cymbals because it enables him to play with two different octaves at the same time. Also, some advanced drummers prefer to use a double set of cymbals and a single cabinet. So there are plenty of options to choose from.
One more thing that sets the table-top electronic drums apart from the traditional drums is the drum track. This is an enclosure wherein the drummer mounts the hardware, such as the sticks, the hi-hat, and the snare, on the top and places all the other hardware (including the ride-on microphones and footstools) on the bottom. There are hardware kits that come with pads and even cables, but you can also buy separate hardware if you want. Table-top sets come with their own set of cymbals. They have solid bodies and are lightweight so that they can be easily transported from place to place.
