Re: How hard can I hit electronic drums???
I kind of wondered about this too since I recently bought an e-kit.
I have a mesh head on the snare only and I hit it hard sometimes like I do with my acoustic snare.
Aside from having a different bounce feel it behaves like an acoustic drum. If I hit it to hard it does a simulated choke. The Kevlar mesh head can take it no problem. I don't worry about going through it. The electronic components of the drum can also take it.
So just like when playing an acoustic drum there is no point in hitting beyond a certain pressure because the drum will not make more sound.
I kind of like old drums:)
