I researched the market in a quest to find the best electronic drum pad.
I run into some substantial differences in:
- pre-built sounds
In compare to electronic percussion pads, sample pads offer you more freedom to be creative.
As a drummer, I fully understand features we need from sampling pads, like to have easy to use interface, different metronome options, soft and large pads, good sound, external input jacks, large screen, etc.
I found three pads that currently rule the market. Every professional drummer who decides to add an electronic pad to his set will use one of these three that’s for sure.
In this article, I will compare all the important features and point to you some pros and cons as we go over. Let’s start by checking the front side of each electronic drum pad and dive a little deeper into the interface of each.
