Whether you're a beginning drummer or a working professional, you'll find that the use of electronics has become standard practice. This digital book is a comprehensive study of all things electronic. Author Bob Terry clearly demonstrates and discusses the advantages of using (and the many professional uses for) the full electronic drum kit, percussion pad, MIDI controller, and hybrid drum kit. Includes detailed descriptions of each of these components and how to hook them up, audio samples, onstage setups, and more.

“Electronic drums, sampled sounds, and digital recording have become a way of life for drummers in the music business. You can't avoid electronic instruments and technology any more ... In this book he will show you, as he has shown me, all of the important things you need to know about incorporating electronics into your drumming.”

– Kenny Aronoff

Voted #1 Session and Pop/Rock Drummer for five consecutive years by Modern Drummer magazine
