Guide to Tourtech Electronic Drum Kits

Tourtech has become the go-to brand for providing affordable, high-quality accessories to musicians. However, their electronic drum kit offering delivers the same bang-for-your-buck ethos to aspiring drummers.

Tourtech Electronic Drum Kits

The Perfect Introduction to Drumming

Tourtech are a relative newcomer to the electronic drum market who  offer a wide range of affordable products designed for beginners. These electronic drums contain an extensive feature-set at a great price - making drumming accessible to more people than ever before! All the drums in the range are under £500. 

Tourtech drums deliver features that are usually reserved for more expensive brands. These include all mesh heads - which mirror the feel of acoustic drums and ensure the pad is also much quieter. Two of their starter kits are even completely foldable.

As with many brands, the Tourtech modules come packed with a huge sound library. The module is the brain - the source of the sounds and what all of the pads plug into. This easy-to-use interface boasts hands-on dials and buttons, and useful coaching functions, which help you learn and work on your timing. An onboard metronome/click track function is particularly helpful with this. The sensitivity can be adjusted too (this allows you to tailor your kit and tweak each pads level of response).

That's not all. Spare inputs let you augment your kit with add-on drums or cymbals, while USB connectivity ensures you can connect your kit to your production setup for some effortless music-making.  

Use the auxiliary input for connecting your phone, tablet or other smart device to play along to your favourite tunes. The head and rim of each drum can be played in the same fashion as an acoustic kit (allowing for cross stick techniques etc, While choke-able cymbals (with multiple sensors) mirror their traditional counterparts. All Tourtech kits come with a years warranty as standard.

But if that isn’t enough, we also offer a number of Tourtech drum kit bundles that include multiple accessories to get you started! Coming with a pair of sticks, a drum throne and headphones, these all-encompassing Tourtech bundles are even more ideal for drummers that want everything they need from the get-go.

Tourtech Electronic Drum Kit Features

All models offered by Tourtech are space-saving, well-made and packed full of features that will make learning and practice engaging for you. Not only that, but they also sound great! In this next section, we take a close look at the amazing features that these versatile kits share.

Responsive Pads

Tourtech kits sport responsive and expressive pads, which accurately pick up the nuances in your playing to make sure that your beats sound dynamic and human. So if you’re a player that likes to add some spice and articulation to your patterns, these pads will pick up ghost notes no problem!

With the flagship TT-22M kit including realistic-feeling mesh heads, these provide you with the playing experience and stick bounce that you would expect from a real acoustic kit. If you want something closer to the real thing, it’s a fantastic option.

Ergonomic Modules

These kits are not just about how great they feel to play. That’s because Tourtech has also ensured that their kit’s sound modules are filled to the brim with ergonomic features and technology.

Boasting multiple presets, you can flick between different drum kit sounds that’ll suit a number of styles, from jazz to metal! Unlike an acoustic kit, with electronic kits like these you aren’t limited to just one sound, but can instead find the right voice for a particular song and even create your own user-defined drum presets!

With USB and MIDI ports for PC connectivity, these modules also sport aux-ins for streaming music through the kit from an MP3 player, smartphone or laptop. This lets you jam and practice to your favourite songs, making you feel like a bonafide rock star! These modules also come with 20 demo tracks that can let you improvise freely, to help you develop your own signature style.

The TT-12S kit is a great way to get started with the drums. It features a super small footprint, foldable rack, quiet pads, and it's easy-to-use and very easy to set up. It’s a great present for a family member or loved one who wants to learn the instrument. 

The foldable rack (which is rare at this price point) can even be set up left-handed with very little effort - catering to drummers of every type. It's also height adjustable, ensuring plenty of growing space for children.  

With 7.5” rubber pads and half cymbals, it provides a configuration that's a great place to develop your skills on. You'll be able to easily translate these over to a full acoustic kit too. 

A great advantage of this kit is the simple sprung bass drum switcher pedal, which is quiet and ideal if the kit is going upstairs, or in a flat. The kit also has an auxiliary input for a music source, as well as USB connectivity and various teaching functions.
