The History Of Electronic Drums Part 1: The First Electric Drum Sets

How did electronic drums become a ‘thing’? Did someone invent them in their basement? Did a fairy drum-mother float down from the sky to bless us all with a kit we could use for quiet home practice, out-of-the-box effects and pre-EQed studio sounds?

You used to only be able to get rhythmic drum samples by playing a keyboard or pushing buttons on a synthesizer – not by striking a surface with a drumstick. That’s where the real magic happened.

It took nearly 50 years of innovation to get to where electronic drums are today: not just an alternative to acoustic kits, but an incredible instrument in itself.
