The big advantage of an electronic drum kit, or e-drum for short, is that it basically has no built-in speakers and can therefore be played very quietly. Only the beating noises can be heard. In contrast, with acoustic drums, the volume is very dominant. Some e-drum models can also be positioned to save space. Instead of skins, silicone pads are used on the e-drum. Depending on the price range, these can vary greatly in terms of quality and touch dynamics. So-called mesh heads are special drum heads that are used on well-equipped e-drums to improve the feel of the drum.
