Types of Drums & Percussion

  • Acoustic Drums: Easily recognizable on stages and in studios the world over, this is the cornerstone of not only the rhythm section, but of the band itself. Acoustic drums include the three essentials of a drum kit: bass drums, snares, and toms.

  • Cymbals: This category refers to the metal discs traditionally crafted from an alloy of copper, tin, and traces of silver. Cymbals range in size from 4" splashes to enormous 24" rides and are typically bowed in shape with a bell in the center.

  • Drum Machines/Electronic Drums/Samplers: The newest addition to this ancient tradition, these voltage-driven wonders are responsible for the electronic elements of the drumming world. They come in the form of straightforward drum machines, multi-sectioned pads which can be hit to trigger a sound, and complex samplers which dissect, rearrange, and reassemble clips of sounds, or samples, in entirely new creative contexts.

  • Marching/Concert: Big, brassy, and loud, the formidable members of this category produce signature sounds from the dramatic buildup in a movement by Beethoven to lively beat that keeps fans on their feet at college sporting events. Marching snares, quads (elongated toms mounted on the shoulders), oversized bass drums, and more are at home in this category.
