Where is the best place to find electronic kits in Ireland?

Electronic drum kits have certainly come on immeasurably in recent times. No longer can they have the accusation of poor imitation sounding hits levelled at them, or the suggestion that they're in some way inferior to play than the real thing.

Obviously everyone is going to have a preference for one kind or another, but the fact is that any gap between the two varieties of drum kit has certainly all but disappeared.

What we have today are highly specced devices driven by high tech computer "brains" which contain all the information and parameters needed for the drummer to set his kit up just the way he wants. On higher end kits you can change drum sounds, tuning, type, simulated microphone position for recording purposes, level balance, tone, add effects and compression, layer sounds... you name it and it can probably be done, such is the power behind these electronic drum kits.

However, none of this is any use to the drummer searching for a reputable supplier of electronic kits in Ireland. Normally we would recommend you search online for, well... pretty much everything, but in the case of an electronic drum kit we're going to rein that back in a little and instead recommend you buy local.

We're not after getting conscious about the economy all of a sudden or anything like that, it's simply a case of logistics. These kits are big and heavy, and the last thing you want to have to do is send one back if it doesn't work. No, instead it's much wiser to suck up the additional cost and view it as a "convenience" fee.

It might surprise you to learn that there are actually quite a few options available to you in Ireland when it comes to electronic drum kits. We have listed some below, but we recommend you call in and speak to someone in each of these stores in person until you find the kit, and the price, that is right for you.
