Whether you are a beginning drummer or a working professional, you'll find that the use of electronics has become standard practice. This book is a comprehensive study of all things electronic. Author Bob Terry clearly demonstrates and discusses the advantages of using (and the many professional uses for) the full electronic drum kit, percussion pad, MIDI controller, and hybrid drum kit. Includes detailed descriptions of each of these components and how to hook them up, audio samples, onstage setups, and more. A terrific introduction to a topic that is ever increasingly relevant!
