Electronic drum kit

An electronic drum kit often resembles an acoustic drum kit, but pads mounted on stands replace the standard shell and skin setup from a conventional drum kit.

The pads can be made from rubber or, in more expensive drum kits, a mesh system. When they are hit they trigger a corresponding drum sample. It is normal for an electronic drum kit to have its own MIDI sound module, but it can also be used to trigger a sampler or a software instrument on a computer.
