Acoustic Drumkits

Drum Kits - Rapid-fire Beats

Drum kits are assorted collections of drums and cymbals that can be played simultaneously by a single drummer. It was earlier called a drum set or a trap set, and was assembled to meet the needs of jazz and r...

ck music.

The size and the kind of percussion instruments in a drum kit differ from player to player and from band to band.

If you would like to take up playing the drums, you should become familiar with everything that makes up a kit, where to find sets and how to learn some simple music.

So, What Do You Need In Your Drum Kit?

A good kit consists of the following

  • Splash cymbal
  • Hi-hat
  • High tom-tom
  • Ride cymbal
  • Snare drum
  • Floor tom-tom
  • Bass drum

Accessories like stands, sticks, mallets and brushes form the supporting cast.

The simultaneous playing of drums and cymbals requires lightning fast reflexes. Different drummers like to place drums to their own taste but the most common arrangement is as follows:

Bass drum, which is the biggest drum in the kit, squats on the floor. Next to it stands the floor tom-tom and the high tom-toms are mounted on top of the bass drum. The snare drum rests on a stand.

The hi-hat consisting of two cymbals is also placed on a stand while the ride and crash cymbals, also mounted on stands, are arranged to its left and right.

However, it is not easy to single-handedly play such a large collection of drums. It requires hand-leg coordination and proper placement.

The 1980s saw the arrival of the electronic drum kit produced by companies like Simmons, Yamaha and Pearl.

These drum sets use pads or triggers mounted on acoustic drums to play sampled or synthesized sounds and have given another dimension to the traditional kit. But no electronic drums will ever be considered a replacement for a proper kit.

Convenience For The Solo Percussionist

The drum kit, a combination of percussion instruments arranged such that a solo percussionist can handle drums, cymbals and percussion conveniently at the same time in form of a kit.

Drum kits can vary massively depending on the sound and purpose the drummer requires from the drums and cymbals.

And only the drummer himself can truly choose what sounds he wants to beat from his own drums.

From Conventional Drum Kit to Electronic

Kits (also known as drum sets or trap sets) have been an intrinsic part of music, live or recorded since the early 1920's right up to the late 1980's before conventional drums were often replaced by synthesizers. It was during the 1980's that various musical giants like Roland, Simmons & Yamaha created the electronic drum sets to produce synthesized sound of drum beats.

During the early 1970's, huge kits were seen to reach their zenith with drummers like Neil Peart and Terry Bozzio creating drum ensembles. Large kits allowed them to contribute not just melodiously but rhythmically as well, but now the trend is again towards compact drums kit.

All kits have various tunable parts since the snare drums, bass drum or kick drums, hanging and foot toms, along with small percussion instruments mounted on the bass drum all need to be fine-tuned at frequent intervals lest the melody goes out of your drum's creation.

Even Keith Moon, before he smashed his kit and drums and kicked them into the audience could mesmerize us with his drumming.
