Drum Shields vs. V Drums
In recent years some drummers in churches and recording studios have tried V-Drums, the top selling electronic drum kit from manufacturer Roland. The design and technology of these electronic drum kits allows drummers to let the equipment control the volume of percussion rather than having to adjust their particular playing style. However, many drummers find major problems with the artificial sound of electronic drums and for those that prefer the natural acoustic sounds of traditional drums ClearSonic has a solution: clear panel acrylic drum shields.
Technology advances in the hopes of making products better but in some cases the results are more problematic than the solution. Electronic drums, in particular V-drums, are a case in point. While the sound volume is easy to control many drummers have voiced complaints about artificial sounds on cymbals and snares, velocity scaling, kit mapping, annoying glitches with cable wires and the awkward sound of double hits when pads are struck. Many V-drum kits also patch in to software programs that can have their own set of problems. Log on to any drum site chat room and you'll find a long list of V-drum players who have a laundry list of issues stemming from electronic drums.
