When Moody Blues drummer Graeme Edge devised the first electronic drum with Sussex University professor Brian Groves back in 1971, there was no way they could've predicted what kind of rise in popularity that electronic drums would have over the next decade. From Rush to Devo, electronic drum sets played a significant role in defining the sound of the 80's, and their playability and sound continues to improve each and every day. The versatility and realism of electronic drum sets can surprise even the greatest players. In fact, modern electronic kits have the capability of perfectly mimicking the sound of a regular acoustic drum set, to the point that even the most finicky of players can't tell a difference. Not only that, but they're a great option for drummers who need to keep the noise to a minimum, but wish to continue practicing late at night.
Whether you have kids or simply live in a busy neighborhood, you can always just grab a pair of headphones, plug into your electronic kit, and play as hard as you'd like without disturbing a soul. Today, there is no shortage of top-quality electronic drum kits constructed by the biggest names in drums. From 2Box and ddrum, to Simmons, Yamaha, Roland and Alesis, these manufacturers have designed immaculate electronic drum kits that are precise, durable and playable for drummers of all ages and skill levels. A great choice is the ddrum DD1 Electronic Drum Set. This incredible sounding kit has a five-piece configuration that consists of four single zone pads, a hi-hat controller and a pad, snare and cymbals. You can even plug in an MP3 player and play along to your favorite songs. Another affordable option is the Simmons SDXpress2 Compact 5-piece kit. It's super-compact, has 193 different drum sounds, 10 song styles, and a song recorder. It's highly recommended for beginners and casual players alike. Electronic drum sets are not what they used to be. Modern electronic kits can give you a near infinite supply of various drum sounds, suitable for any genre of music. Simply put, an electronic drum kit is a fantastic option to consider for any drummer.
