How to Choose Between Electronic and Acoustic Drums

Electronic or Acoustic Drum Set? Find out which one best suits your musical lifestyle.

As a drummer, many a person has asked me if I prefer electronic or acoustic drums. Every time I am asked this question, my answer is always the same: yes. After giving the inquirer my pointless answer, I then proceed to tell them the facts.

In regards to the electronic drum set, it has many great qualities such as having a wide variety of instruments and effects with which to create a customized sound, having more control of the overall volume of the set, and most important, portability. The electronic drum set is ideal for gigs in which one plays in a small room with less overall volume. Also, if he plays these small gigs on a regular basis, it is much less work to pack up and move than an acoustic set because it weighs so much less and almost every piece is attached to the main rack. Another great feature of the electronic drum set is the absence of the sound of the sticks hitting real drumheads. The use of rubber pads reduces the volume vastly and takes the edge off of the overall sound of the set. The downside to playing electronic drums is that you lose the feel of acoustic drums. Yes, the sticks do bounce easily off of the rubber pads, but the feel is just not the same. Also, when one goes to crash heavily, he is let down by the lack of power that is felt when crashing on an acoustic set.

Concerning the acoustic set, the feel of hitting real drums and real cymbals is simply incomparable. With acoustic sets, the drummer is hitting real drums and this allows him to feel the music in a way that electronic drums do not. Acoustic drums are ideal for larger settings where massive volume is a must. Also, acoustic drums engage audiences more than an electronic set ever could. Audiences at larger gigs such as concerts in auditoriums to smaller outdoor music events want to feel the music, and acoustic drums fulfill this desire. The downside to acoustic drums is the lack of control of volume when needed and the fact that they are much heavier than electronic drums and have more detached pieces. This causes the acoustic drum set to be much less portable.

As you can see, there are many pros and cons to each type of drum set. The set most preferred is the one that meets the requirements for the gig at hand. For anyone wondering about my experience with these types of drum sets, I own a Pearl Forum Series acoustic set with Zildjian A series cymbals and a Roland TD-6V electronic set. I love both sets and I prefer playing the set that meets the needs of the current gig.
