Finding a cheap electronic drum kit that actually sounds good isn’t always easy, but fortunately the all-new Tourtech electronic drum kits are here to change things. These highly affordable kits range from the complete beginner options to fully fledged touring rigs with mesh heads, offering a lifetime of high quality performance, superb playability and drum modules packed with sounds you’ll actually want to use!

With 4 kits now available to order, ranging from home practice/beginner to professional touring/studio rigs, we’re highlighting the differences between each Tourtech Electronic drum kit so you can make the right choice.

Cheapest Option - TOURTECH TT-12S Electronic Drum Kit

TOURTECH TT-12S Electronic Drum Kit

You’ll find it difficult to get hold of a cheap electronic drum kit with anywhere near as many features packed in as the TOURTECH TT-12S Electronic Drum Kit. This very inexpensive electronic drum kit is a fantastic option for beginners and those who need a space saving electronic drum kit that won’t cost a fortune. For under £200 you get a 7-piece drum kit with high-hat pedal, kick pedal and ergonomically designed rack-system that is easy to set up and pack down.

The TourTech TT12S sound module, also known as the ‘brain’ of the kit is packed with 250 high quality percussion voices as well as 20 demo songs to play along with and 20 preset drum kits plus 10 user defined drums kits that you can create to your specifications – more than enough to jam along to.

The high quality rubber pads have been designed to withstand years of playing and ensure a comfortable playing experience that beginners and seasoned players alike will enjoy. However, the dual zone snare pad is where this kit really comes to life as you can play two independent samples from the same pad.

You have the main ‘snare’ sound and the ‘rim shot’ sound – both of which can be triggered independently or at the same time.

If you’re just starting out with drums, this is a great option.

These mesh pads have been designed to emulate the feel of acoustic kits and when coupled with the TT-22M module with superior decay times, adjustable sensitivity and crosstalk, it feels and sounds like an acoustic kit whether you’re playing live or recording.

MIDI and USB connectivity is taken care of and you also have an Aux In to jam along to backing tracks too.
