If you are planning on learning to play the drums and you don’t want to upset the neighbors, you may want to consider investing in an electric drum of some kind. With an electronic drum you can listen to the output through headphones so that you can practice without bothering those who reside only a wall away.
Today’s electronic drums are capable of emulating the sound of traditional kits with pretty precise accuracy. They are also designed to reflect the difference in sound depending on how hard you strike the surface. In the past, this kind of technology was rare—but it is becoming standard for the electronic drum of today.
Besides the helpful noise reduction, the electronic drum is far more economic in space and easier to store and transport than the standard drum set. They are also designed to be durable so that they can tolerate the impact of the most relentless drummer. Even if you already have a standard drum set, an electronic drum might be useful for allowing you to practice after hours.
