We all know that electronic drums are very demanding on speakers. You need to be able to project the thundering lows of the kick drum and the floor toms and also the really high highs of the cymbals. Drum amplifiers help you achieve that ideal and make yourself be heard.
A drum amplifier is essentially always ready to power up electronic drums and other instruments that are also MIDI capable. Here's a sweet fact: they are compact, so they will provide great amplification for your electronic drums without taking up a lot of space. Basically, drum amplifiers give you the biggest subwoofer inside of a compact package.
Sweetwater carries drum amplifiers that reproduce your kicks' and cajons' deep bass alongside your cymbals' and tambourines' ear-tickling high end while having enough power to keep up with a combo. Electronic drum amplifiers are something that you can really, really feel and control. They are loud, powerful and work beautifully.
Amps really thrive off of giving you a great sound which you will be able to EQ with the EQ knobs - these usually have a really big dent in them, so you can actually EQ with your drumstick if you can't reach the drum amp with your hand. Also, drum amplifiers have an extra line input, so you can plug in at least one extra instrument.
Typically, you want to search for a drum amp that has a subwoofer and some tweeters in it, so you can handle the high frequencies as well as all those mid-range frequencies. Look for a versatile drum amplifier that you can also use to power up other musical instruments. For practice and utility purposes, keep an eye on drum amplifiers that have several ports, like for headphones. Also, it's nice to have amps with a good EQ and other effects in order to add beauty and clarity to your drum beats.
Whether you're drumming at home, at a studio, or onstage, amping your drums will help you get a top-notch sound. Drum amps really shine when you use them to practice with your entire band. You can't practice with just your headphones, after all. If you have headphones on without a way to send the other instruments to them, you won't be able to hear the band very well.
We also carry drum amplifier systems that come with satellite speakers. These can be put inside of the subwoofer itself, thanks to a little compartment where you can fold the speakers inside. This is a really nice feature if you like to think your drum amp system as your portable companion.
