The Electric Drums for Beginners range is an excellent starting point for anybody looking to learn how to play the drums. Many people have already taken advantage of products within our beginner electronic drum kits category, especially the Carlsbro CSD130 which is exceptionally user-friendly to fledgling percussionists. Starter electronic drum kits are the ideal way to start, keeping noise levels down whilst being a fun way to stay active while learning.

What are electric drums for beginners?

Beginner electronic drum kits are musical instruments that are designed to help people from all age groups take up playing the drums. They are made up of a group of drum pads and cymbal triggers which are connected to a strong frame, when hit with the sticks the kit will reproduce the assigned sound back via headphones or an external amp. Drum signals coming through headphones this way renders rehearsal almost silent, allowing drummers to practise whenever the moment calls for it.

On each starter electronic drum kit you will see that there is a box also attached to the frame, this box is a sound module and acts as the brain of the kit. The modules have a lot of functions including hundreds of different sounds and styles, the ability to record your drumming and a timekeeping metronome option. Then when you are finished with your drumming session, the kits will collapse easily for simplicity of storage and transport

Every cymbal and pad on the beginner electronic drum kits can be re-mapped, this means that you can alter pads to make different sounds. For instance, you could change a cymbal into a snare drum sound if you wanted to do so, the option is there to experiment with. Primarily the function was designed for the accessibility of drummers who prefer their kit set up a certain way while performing.

When and where is best to use a starter electronic drum kit?

One major aspect of beginner electronic drum kits is that you can play them anywhere there is a power source and at any time of day. The kits are compact-able as noted, they fold away easily for simplicity of storage and transport when on the go. You can comfortably set the kits up on any flat surface and the wired pedals act in the same way as normal pedals do, akin to most beginner kits.

On paper, it is fully possible to play an electric drum kit at any time of day thanks to the in-headphone playback, you can even play well into the night. If you’d rather be heard just connect to a drum amplifier, although it may be appropriate to rehearse during the day only to avoid disturbance. Nearly noise-free playback is naturally the big pull to an electronic drum kit as noise disturbances will be a polar opposite of an acoustic kit.

YouTube and other similar web services will certainly be full of free drum lessons for those just getting to grips with the drums. Research some topics such as how to play a basic beat, the optimal drumming posture and tips on playing to a click track. Subscribe to a few channels that provide the general public with tutorials and search their previous videos for extra tips and tricks.

How to set up an electric drum set?

Building and putting together your kit is pretty straightforward and consists of three steps. Firstly, separate the drum kit packaging from the drum parts themselves and set them on the floor for easy access. Secondly, start building the frame of the drums, as the pads and cymbals will be connected and tightened to the frame via a hand twisted mechanism. Thirdly, connect the commander sound module and plug in the pad and cymbal wires, activate and start playing.

Once you have set up the kit it can be folded away easily without having to repeat construction, just ensure you twist all tightenings so they are secure. Snare pads are coated in a material that is different from the other drum pads, this coating helps to simulate the expressive dynamic of an actual snare drum skin. The coating used on the snare pad is extra durable as this is perhaps the most struck drum note on the kit, right beside the bass drum and hi-hats.

Each pedal is linked to the system via wires as noted above, the responsiveness from the pedals is very accurate and plays just like a real kit. This allows drummers to play their hi-hats properly, to explain, the cymbals sound like they are opening and closing with the pedal but the cymbal doesn’t actually move. This tends to be the case for many of the more affordable electric drum sets on the instrument market today.

Can I use these kits for MIDI purposes?

These kits contain MIDI outputs, meaning connecting your kit to computer software is a possibility, this allows the recording of drum tracks right into music projects. Tracks are recorded directly into a DAW or digital audio workstation, there is many free DAWs you can access from the internet. The drums on this page are all over £200 but are all full of different drum sounds to experiment with freely, making the kits exceptional value for money.

Most pro percussionists these days began their careers on a starter kit of some kind, proving that practise alone can help you achieve a respectable arts career. It is never too late to take up a new hobby like drumming, especially if you are not going to cause a noise disturbance while you learn. Take a moment to research what kit works for you and consider upping your budget slightly for additional peripherals and software upgrades.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Electronic Drum Kits Good For Beginners?

Yes, electronic drum kits are a great entry point for any beginner player to start learning drums. They are simple to use, and compact in size when compared to a traditional acoustic kit, allowing you to reach each pad and cymbal much easier.

Can I Use Headphones With Electronic Kits?

Yes, the module section of each kit that plugs into mains power will feature a headphone connection, and some kits will come with headphones included. By using headphones with an electronic drum kit, you can hear the drum samples that the pads are producing without disturbing anyone else in your household.

Which Electronic Drum Set Is Best For Beginners?

There are many beginner electronic drum kits that we provide, and each of them will be better for different people. For example, we offer small kits that are intended for use by kids, and we also offer large full-sized kits with mesh heads that are perfect for beginner players who want a more realistic feel to the drums.
