COVID 19 UPDATE: We are pleased to announce that all 15 PMT Stores across the UK are Covid Secure and are now open. MORE INFO.
Electronic Drum Pads are gaining popularity now, not just amongst those who play electronic drum kits, but as an essential part of an otherwise fully acoustic drum kit, adding an extra dimension and more versatility to more traditional setups. These "hybrid drum kits" are now used by many professional players in big bands such as Coldplay, Muse, Rush and others. At the PMT Online Drum Shop you'll find a wide range of electronic pads by brands such as Roland, Yamaha, Alesis and Nord. All items in-stock and worth over £99 are available for FREE Next Day Delivery, or for Reserve & Collect in-store.
Alongside electronic drum triggers and trigger modules, electronic pads are essential tools for creating a versatile 'Hybrid Drum Kit': the core of your setup will still be the natural sounds of your acoustic drum kit, but now you can use modern technology to expand this setup and shape your sound further, with extra drum & percussion sounds, samples and more!
Just like a modern guitarist today may use an electro-acoustic guitar with loopers and other fx pedals, now drummers find it useful to add an electronic element to their sound - while still retaining all the power and immediacy of their acoustic drums. Some things never go out of fashion, after all.
Electronic drum pads, on their own, can also be used a good practice tools.
Visit one of our PMT House of Drums drum shops, spread across the UK, to try an electronic drum pad for yourself - our drum experts will be at hand and glad to help you with any questions you may have, and, who knows, if you decide to buy an electronic pad you might as well revolutionize the way you play drums, forever!
