Electronic Drum

Electronic drums are an alternative to acoustic drums and they come in a variety of sizes. Some come without the remainder shell, where as more expensive models keep this to make it look and feel more like a real drum kit. All come with a sound module which is where you can change the volume and style of kit, and you can also use this to connect it to your device to run the Freedrum app or other DAW such as Garageband and Ableton. Naturally, you can also connect headphones to the sound module so you can practice as quietly as possible.
