When most people think of drums, they think of the kit their friend used to play in their after school band or a behemoth they saw on stage one night at an unforgettable concert. In realty though, that's only scratching the surface. There are a wide variety of specialty drums available to help you get the absolutely perfect sound you're looking for. When buying a specialty drum the first question you have to ask yourself is "what kind of sound am I hoping to achieve?" Different drums produce different results; A Toca Kalani Flex Drum, for example, offers a vastly different sound than a Toca Ashiko drum. Are you looking for a drum that pops, or rather one that has a deep low-end for carrying the rhythm? The way you tune your drums may also be a factor in your decision. Do you like a modern tuning mechanism? If so, you would definitely want to try the mechanically tuned Ashiko drum. All you have to do is grab your wrench and tighten the bolts on your tuning hooks until you find your perfect sound. On the other hand, if you're old-school, the rope tuned Ashiko could be right for you. Both offer fantastic sound, all you have to do is decide how you want to achieve it. If you're more interested in accompaniment than showcasing your drum prowess, you may want to look at the bass pedal drum. It will easily allow you to stomp a beat while singing or playing your favorite guitar. Some can even plug into an amplifier to further extend the range of their sound, making them an ideal choice for busking or playing in intimate venues where space is at a premium. At the end of the day, it's simply a matter of personal taste. There are a variety of drums that suit everyone's needs; it's all about discovering the one that works best for you. One thing is for sure, when you find the drum you have been looking for, you're going to love bringing your rhythm to life with it.
