The trumpet is a brass instrument that has been around for thousands of years and were originally used to send men into battle or to signal the beginning of a hunt.
However, today the trumpet is an instrument used to make beautiful music over multiple genres. In fact, no great jazz or classical ensemble is complete without the trumpet.
Most trumpets are made with three to four valves that allow the player to vary the pitch or sound that comes out of the instrument. While you might think that only having three to four valves would make the trumpet an easy instrument to play, you would be mistaken.
To really learn to play well, you need to be taught. Trumpet lessons will provide you with both the knowledge of the correct way to use the instrument as well as the practice required to elevate your playing skills to an art form.
One of the questions most drum beginners have is, “What are the best drumkits?”
Acoustic drumkits are the traditional ones – metal cymbals and wooden shells. Electronic are pads with rubber or plastic drumheads, and the sound is heard through a headset or an amplifier.
Beginners and hobbysts certainly have different needs than a pro player. Not only that, a first purchase commands much more care from a beginner. And to complicate things further, pricing is quite similar.
So, you need to consider practicality. Do you have a proper space where you can enjoy the sound of your acoustic drums or will you annoy neighbors with the noise?
As for space, the floor footprint required is similar for both types, however cheaper electronic drums have smaller pads, so your playing position is cramped.
However, the most important distinction is the feel. Rubber pads simply feel different compared to an actual drum head.
Consider these three elements when choosing your drumkits. And have fun!
