Drummers may often perform at the back of the stage behind the spotlight, but they’re the backbone of the music and the anchor of the band. Acoustic drum sets, also called drum kits, are what we typically think of when we think of the drums. This gives the drum more of a tone heavy sound with good projection and resonance. And drum heads with perimeter sound rings mostly eliminate overtones (Howie 2005).
Often, one or two electronic drums are used alongside acoustic drums to simulate the sound of a missing drum. In 1920 Ludwig and most other drum manufacturers gave into the inevitable and adopted the swivel nut design and made it their own. Drum kit yang pertama kali dikembangkan karena pertimbangan ruang dan keuangan di bioskop di mana drumer didorong untuk menutupi bagian perkusi sebanyak mungkin.
Today, a typical drum set or drum kit is composed of a number of different drums and cymbals. Founded in 1984, Kumu Drums is a small Finnish family business that makes high-quality drum sets by hand. This movement and shuffling of ownership in the market place gave rise to a new generation of drum companies, some of which had been living in the shadows of the majors for many years.
While today solid shell and block shell snare drums made from Maple, Mahogany and Walnut are a unique feature offered by expensive custom drum manufacturers, in the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s and even 50’s (Slingerland only), all the major drum manufacturers made drums this way.
So let’s say you check out the edges on your drum kit and don’t think they’re up to par. They have almost the same parts as acoustic drums but they definitely look very different. These drum pad silencers absorb the sound that hitting the drums with your drumsticks make while at the same time still preserving a good amount of the same natural stick bounce and feel of your drum set.
