You may probably have heard this before from your school teacher, and its indeed true that Drums & Percussion Instruments are the most ancient instruments of all, known to mankind from the earliest days of civilization. It may not have been used for entertainment then, but today, Drums are an important part of human culture and used in all kind of music around the world.
And Percussion Instruments include many more instruments besides drums. In fact, any instrument that produces sound because of beating or striking it is considered to be part of the percussion family. There are many who also consider piano to be part of the percussion family because the sound is produced by the hammers striking the strings.
Nonetheless, percussion instruments are also great for introducing children to the wonderful world of music.
Here you will find drum sets, electronic drums, and percussion accessories for every level of player.
The drum kit consists of a mix of drums, with the snare drum mounted on a stand and placed between the players knees. A bass drum played by a pedal is operated by the foot. One or two tom drums are usually mounted above the bass drum and one or more cymbals are also part of the drum kit. Drums may be played with either sticks (wooden or bamboo) or brushes (steel or nylon).
Electronic Drum Sets
Thanks to electronic drum sets, more parents are now willing to get a drum set for their growing child; these drum sets allow you to practice without rattling the whole house.
These sets have volume control, and you can also plug in headphones so that you can play at odd hours and not wak up your neighbors. These drum sets are best to experience a quiet percussion session where only you’re listening to the sound.
Electronic drums make ideal beginning sets, so students who are a little shy to practice out loud can just play to themselves. An extra benefit of electric drum sets is that some come equipped with built-in metronomes to keep you on time.
