For all you drummers who play in churches or smaller venues: what kind of drum setup do you find works for lower volume music? Our church right now is going through the age old electronic vs. acoustic drum debate. Some people don't like drums period and continually complain about the volume and noise, while others like acoustic drums and wish it was louder. The past couple weeks we've been trying electronic drums and I've talked with a number of people who feel that e-drums lack the flavour of acoustic drums. As one of the regular drummers I don't want to go to electronic drums just because a couple of people have complained, but we need a happy medium as a solution. I think that going with electronic drums would be a reactionary step and I really don't think it's the solution. I don't think I've ever talked with a drummer who would choose to play an exclusively electronic kit over an acoustic one and I think e-drums are plan b at best. I think it is possible to manage the volume of the acoustic drums. How do you guys go about managing the volume of drums in church and what is a good way to present the benefits of acoustic drums to the congregation?
