A drum kit is an extremely complex equipment, which consists of multiple components and instruments, a range of colours, and multiple different volumes. Despite this fact, the drum set is one instrument, which can’t exist without any of its parts. If you take away one piece of a kit, the whole instrument will sound completely different. Anyway, with or without that part, the instrument has to sound great.
Drums are divided by style, tone, price, selection, colour, music, etc. Still, there is one common division of the instruments by what they are doing in songs. To make a long story short, drum sets can be unofficially divided by music styles.
So, how can these sets make up the track and the music in general, as they are everywhere in the modern music? The purpose of the drums is to provide rhythm to a song. Based on a particular genre, they have slightly different missions. For example, in house music, they provide a time-keeping element and the base of all the other instruments. Across all genres, in general, all types of drums define the structure and the form of a song. They help to create the form of a track.
And now, let’s look how drums are divided depending on a certain genre, style, and size.
