Acoustic Drums vs. Electronic Drums
« on: May 07, 2016, 08:34:44 PM »
Magandang gabi sa lahat!

Dahil sa problema ko sa kapitbahay na masyadong O.A. na dahil sa drumming ko. Ok kaya kung palitan ko nalang to ng Electronic drums?
Beginner pa kasi ako kaya gusto ko talaga yung acoustic drums. :(

Sa mga naka experience na sa both drums. Any PROS and CONS please? Thank you!

Cheers

Electronic Drums
Pros:
-obviously di maingay
-can change sounds
-can "add" more sounds via VST plugins
-easy to record
-saves space

Cons:
-different feel from acoustic, especially cymbals
-depending on model, no rimshots/rim clicks/ride bell
-will need loud PA for live band practice
-parts and repairs are expensive
-depending on model, hi hat controller can be iffy
-depending on model, may not be able to use own pedal or no double peds

Acoustic Drums
Pros:
-real feel
-highly adjustable and customizable
-superior sound quality if you buy the right heads and cymbals and tune correctly

Cons:
-loud AF
-won't sound good if you don't know how to tune
-changing the sound can get expensive
-can be muted for practice but sound will not be as low as electronic
-takes much more space

Iba pa rin talaga pag Acoustic kesa sa Electronic.. Ibang feel sa stick rebound.. Mas masarap pa rin acoustic..

Give and take na lang kayo ni kapitbahay. Wag ka mag drums ng mga tipong gabi na o hating gabi lalo na madaling arraw at malamang naman nagpapahinga na/pa mga tao. Wag din naman sobrang aga. Hapon pwede na. As long as sa loob ka mismo ng sarili niyong bahay ikaw nagdadrums, walang pakealam dapat don si kapitbahay kasi karapatan mo yon at nandon ka sa teritoryo niyo.
Planning for a Band Rehearsal Studio business. Baka may alam kayong space for rent around QC area lang. Please PM me. Thank you.

Tama ka talaga jan brod sa teritoryo. Masyadong makikitid lang talaga utak ng mga taong to. Hindi naman ako nagdrudrum tuwing gabi. Usually hapon lang. On weekend, sometimes sa umaga. Pero seldom.

just want to add up another good reason to buy E-drums,

1. portability (depends on the model)
2. easy to play along tracks
3. the features of COACH (if the edrums have it) I mean c'mon it can tell you accurately how bad or good your timing is.


Now if your issue is the dynamics and "play feel", I guess you just have to play acoustic drums if you have chances. I practice with E-drums (roland td4kp) and during our rehearsal and worship night I use acoustic. If I may share my experience, practicing rudiments with practice pad feels different with applying it to acoustic snare, toms, cymbals etc. But the thing is I gotta practice. So my point is, E-drums is a great practice source since you have issues with your neighbor when you play on you acoustic. Because in the end, practice with E-drums is a LOT better with no practice at all.
