Compact Electronic Drum Kit with Headphones Digital Drums 400
About this deal
As the most important elements of any drum kit, with these digital iterations you can expect to experience some impressively nuanced, detailed and great sounding drum tones - all powered by the formidable TD-50X module. The modules are another key point of progression when you get to spending the big bucks, with super high fidelity drum sounds and loads of effects and ambience customisation coming as standard.
Featuring digital hi-hat, ride and snare pads, the 706 offers the kind of playability and natural feeling that Roland has made its name upon. Many professional drummers nowadays started out on a kit of this size and specification, through practise alone they have achieved a career doing exactly this. Both kits take advantage of the powerful new TD-50X module, which delivers digital ride, snare and now hi-hats.But you might be surprised how good some of the better wired gaming headsets can sound on an electronic drum kit. Some intermediate e kits will integrate traditional drum hardware into their setups too - most commonly a hi-hat stand, with an electronic pad mounted to it.
The built-in sounds are just fine for practice, especially if you spend some time tweaking with the trigger settings and built-in EQ.These digital drum kits provide flexibility, control, and variable volume levels, enabling drummers to play with a wider range of sounds and effects than ever before. Gigging with an electronic drum set would be best for someone who wants to change drum sounds often, or someone that uses a lot of pre-recorded samples.
Most e-kits at this level come with mesh heads (or a worthy equivalent in the case of Yamaha’s TCS silicone pads), meaning you’ll have a fairly realistic feeling e-kit to cut your teeth on. People may use them to trigger ‘one-shots’ - single sounds like hand-claps, synths or similar - and some people use them to trigger entire backing tracks. A good pair of drumming headphones, regardless of if they are designed for studio or consumer use, should have the following characteristics. The best thing about kids electronic drum kits is they can be set up and played at any time and anywhere there’s a power source to plug into. The Nitro Max Kit includes everything you need to start playing drums right away – all in a lightweight, compact, stylish design.If you hear less of the tapping on the pads and more of the drum module, that is better for an immersive drumming experience. The snare pads are covered in a slightly different material to the rest of the pads, this material better emulates the dynamic feel of a real snare drum skin. So, as you can see – you very well could be happy with some normal headphones and not need to upgrade to a more higher quality studio set.
You can set the kits up comfortably on any flat surface and the pedals are connected to the kit via wire, like many other electric drum sets. They are usually designed for comfort over style, and might not be as portable or sleek in design as consumer level headphones.Commonly found on many high-end electronic drum kits, mesh provides a greater sense of realism when practicing and playing on an electronic drum kit as it perfectly emulates the feel and response of hitting a traditional drum head. The DMK has been discontinued and the 02KV is an ideal replacement for those looking for a beginner-friendly kit from Roland.
