Alternative sounds, contraptions, traps, accoutrement! They’re all the rage and have been for a very long time. However the current preference of alternative sounds on the drum set span the realm of new, acoustic inventions as well as electronic pads and controllers. In this episode we give you some historical context for the implementation of alternative sounds and then run down the list of our favorite, current acoustic and electronic alternative sounds.
