Now that’s where I’m sure, have been sure, and would never ever change my view.
Electronic kit's? filth, pure filth. They take away the essence of what a drum kit is, everything that’s enjoyable, physically, and sonically is instantly taken away by electronics.
I’m not a drummer, by any means, but all of my enjoyment from playing the drums comes not only from the physical interaction, but from the fact that you can do so much that electronic kits just can’t do, and if you’re technically limited like me, an acoustic kit is essential to exploit all these little noises and subtle strokes, everything you touch on a "real" kit makes an interesting sound, just grabbing hold of a snare shell, gently ticking a cymbal with a brush, and a million other things.
OK, the dynamic range of an electronic kit, and the range of sounds you can get from it is laughable, compared to even the cheapest, most basic acoustic kit.
Just don’t even go there, electronic pianos, fine, electronic vibes, amazing, electronic anything else, but drums, no, please, just leave it out.
