Electronic Drums

An electronic drum is a new electronic musical instrument that is intended to replace an acoustic drum kit or other percussion instruments. An electronic drum is made up of an electronic or digital sound module that generates the synthesized or sampled percussion sounds, as well as one or more electric sensors or sensor-equipped pads that activate the sounds. The sensors or pads, like normal drums, are struck with drum sticks or with the hands and played in the same way as an acoustic drum kit.
