We are continuing in 2017 with the strategic partnership with Classic Drummer Hall of Fame. You have control over what your drum kit sounds like, making it easy to play in a variety of styles with just one kit. An extra benefit of electric drum sets is that some come equipped with built-in metronomes to keep you on time. Children regularly ask their parents to buy them a drum to play with, and if they don’t have one, they’ll drum on anything at hand.
Acoustic drum sets usually consist of a hi-hat, a few toms, a snare, a bass, and cymbals. A secondary factor that affects the sound of a drum is the tightness that the drumhead is fastened to the shell of a drum. When the steel drums were first developed, the elite classes looked down on both the music and the players.
Similarly, most hand drum percussion cannot be played easily or suitably with drum sticks without risking damage to the head and to the bearing edge, which is not protected by a metal drum rim, like a snare or tom. There are also two new snare drum models: Brushed Aluminum and Chrome Over Brass The most popular snare drums in the world are made of these materials, and now they’re available as Kumu drums, too!
There have been many other types of drum kits and company names that have played an important and influential role in the history of drums. It arose from the need to clear the counter-hoop (rim) of an angled marching drum (due to the single-point attachment of the drum sling).
Much the same considerations apply to bass drum pedals and the stool, but these are not always considered breakables, particularly if changeover time between bands is very limited. The drum head is attached to the actual shell using lugs that press on the shell through hoops.
