The price of traditional drum kit has fallen steadily over the years, owing to high market penetration of electronic drum. Fewer additional accessories, such as cymbals and heads minimize the operational cost of electronic drum, over the longer run. Moreover advantages, such as less acoustic noise, on board headphones for silent practice, and overall portability of electronic drum kit makes it one of the popular alternatives of traditional acoustic drums.
