Frequently Asked Questions:
How loud are electronic drums?
Electronic drums do generate sound when being played although at a fraction of the noise generated by acoustic drums. Electronic drums either use rubber or mesh pads producing a much quieter sound when struck. Whether using headphones or an amp, you have control over the level of volume you need to produce.
What is the best way to amplify electronic drums?
There are many options when it comes to amplifying electronic drums. The quickest way is to plug headphones into the drum module if you are practicing by yourself. You can also plug the drum kit into an amp or a mixer and PA system. No matter how you decide to amplify your electronic kit you can adjust the volume to a much lower playable level than what you typically will get with an acoustic kit.
Can I use any kind of drum sticks with an electronic kit?
The easy answer is yes. The only consideration is that with wood tip sticks, there can be sharp bits that come with playing that could possibly tear at mesh drum heads. Nylon tip sticks are probably best but, you really can use any stick you want when it comes to electronic drums.
