A lot of experts will tell you that one of the most important things while drumming is to make sure you get the right drum heads. These basic elements of your drum are known to be responsible for more tha 80% of the quality of the sound you create, and while the rest of the materials and elements are also important, the drum heads should be given special care and consideration in most cases.
Of course, choosing the best and most durable drum kit is a good idea. However, to save money and make sure your drum heads continue to perform well in the long run, you can also consider protecting them while you play.
First of all, while playing it’s a good idea to practice the right posture. This can not only help protect your drum heads so you don’t have to replace them as often, but may also increase the overall lifespan of a drum kit and help you save a lot of money in the long run.
Another way to protect drum heads is to cover them or to cover your drums entirely. Special materials can be used for this purpose that will not alter the sound that the drum creates, but can still be efficient in protecting the drum and the drum heads. Some products even exist to help you practice your drumming quietly while acting to protect your drum heads from damage.
