All You Need To Know Concerning The Various Types Of Drum Sets From Jim Laabs Music

By Michael Grinder

Figuring out what drum set is the best for you can be rather hard. The fact of the matter is that there are actually only two types of drum sets. These are acoustic and electronic. It is important to remember that there are some things that one will offer that the other does not.

Many believe that the backbone of most western music is the acoustic drum set. An acoustic drum set can include any number of drums. While this is true a basic set will have four drums and two cymbals. The drums included are the snare, bass, mounted tom and floor tom. While the cymbals will be a hi-hat and a crash or a riding cymbal.

The electronic drum set is a much newer innovation. This does not mean that it is worse than the acoustic drums. In fact many people will find these to be preferable for many reasons. The number of drums on a basic set will vary depending on the manufacturer. Some will offer a basic that is the same as an acoustic set while others will have more drums or cymbals.

An acoustic drum set can be much better than an electronic one for a number of reasons. Acoustic sets generate sound themselves so you can get a range of sounds that are not available on the electronic set. Music that needs brushes will work better on an acoustic set. Acoustic drums are thought to be much better on stage as electronic ones rely on the monitor speakers for volume. As there is no wiring it is easy to set them up. Additionally they are a much cheaper option.

While it may seem that acoustic drums are the better option at this point you should keep in mind that electronic drums do have advantages. You will never have to worry about the neighbors or what people think when you start learning as you are able to plug headphones in. Additionally there is never a need to tune the drums and they are compacts and store with ease.

Finding the right drum set for you can be rather difficult. Just keep in mind that there are some things that one kind can do that the other can’t.
