advantages of electronic drum kits


hi this is Jonny with Dixie Guitar King in st. George Utah and today I’m going to talk about the advantages of an electronic drum kit over an acoustic drum kit so acoustic drum kits are awesome they have a really nice loud percussive sound but the downside to that is that you have neighbors maybe you live in an apartment maybe you live in a house that’s right next to another house or maybe you want to jam out and play the drums at night so the advantage of an electronic drum kit is that you can do all of the things that you can’t do on an acoustic kit you can play all night long you can play when you have people sleeping in your house throw some headphones on you can go in and you can adjust different parameters of drums you can adjust your kits and change what type of drum kit you’re using you can take parts of one kit and add them onto another kit and create your own kits you can tune individual drums which you can do in an acoustic it too but you can add reverb to individual drums you can really dial in whatever type of sound you want pictured right next to me is the Roland TD 11 k which is an awesome drum kit roland invented the electronic drum kit back in the day and they continue to innovate it today they use a technology called supernatural technology which helps model the way that a real acoustic drum works so when you play a real acoustic drum set or any drum for that matter depending on how you hit the drum and where you hit the drum it’s going to react differently the same thing is true of this electronic in wherever you hit the drum and how you hit it it’s going to react differently because it models the way the real drum sets sound so another advantage of having an electronic drum kit is the recording aspect if you’re recording with an electronic drum kit it’s much easier to get a really good quality sound rather than using ten different microphones or six different microphones you just line out of your drum set directly into the input on the audio interface you’re using and you can record audio or you can go MIDI out and trigger virtual instruments and go in and fix your drums later on using the MIDI feature and virtual instruments so there are huge advantages to using electronic drum kits this is like I said is the roland electronic drum kit and these I highly recommend them over any other type of electronic kit for both sound quality and features so the kit also has a trainer function you can go in and you can play along with different types of backing tracks all sorts of different genres of music you can go and speed them up change the key adjust all sorts of different parameters and really get into a jamming mode so come by today come pick one up right now roland is giving a hundred dollars off on the TD 11 series drum set which means you can pick one up for a significant discount anyway this is Jonny at Dixie Guitar King in st. George Utah you all have a great day you
