The development of the Drum Set
- Nov 13, 2018 -

The original form of drum set can be traced back to 1890, when the drummer of stage band abandoned the traditional drum score and expressed the rhythm sense with free expression. The emergence of modern rhythm started at this time.Drummers from the jazz and ragtime bands of New Orleans used the bass drum and snare in their marching bands, using a "double-click" technique in which the bass drum and bass were placed in positions where they could fight back against each other, and played by one peson simultaneously with the head and handle of the drumstick.They often improvise according to the different styles of music, and the bass drum is sometimes played with a handle in addition to the head of the drumstick.
The Ragtime period from 1910 to 1920 was characterized by the bass of the marching rhythm played on the left hand, while the syncopated melody was played on the right hand.Left and right hands form rhythmic stress.Although the drummers at that time liked to play freely and not according to the drum score, they could understand the drum score and understand the syntax of music, and their main purpose was to bring the drum playing to the stage to play important roles.
In 1920, when Jazz was at its peak, the young drummers took a new look at Drum Solo, their own innovation in rhythm and technique.Among many drummers, we need to know Vibes, Bells, Chimes, Timpani and other percussion instruments to be called first-class drummers.
After 1935, the reputation of the drummer reached its peak, and the drum art was widely popular among the public. People could hear and see the drum playing everywhere.Any stage show has an excellent drum solo.Some famous drummers even have their own bands.Drum playing skills and performance forms are constantly and rapidly changing, and many conformists are eliminated.
Jazz drummers often play in circuses, sideshows and other occasions, and a large number of traditional percussion instruments and some novel alternative percussion instruments have been used in succession due to the need of music cohesion and sound effect, and gradually become the exclusive percussion instrument of jazz band.Like "Cowbells," "wooden fish," "tanggu," "tonggu," "bell bell," and "washboard," have all been used for a long time.Of course, many percussion instruments did not become standard instruments in drums, and in the 1920s, some were eliminated and some improved.For example, a drum in China i s replaced by a drum that can modulate the pitch of the drum.

In the 1950s and 1960s, as a result of new technology and the rise of rock 'n' roll, double-bass drums were already common in jazz bands, with the exception of exotic percussion instruments such as Bongos.The number of drums has also increased to seven or more.Some traditional percussion instruments, such as cowbell, have also been revived.
