The Best Roll Up Electronic Drum Kits 2017

Roll-up drum kits are a great option for drummers that are low on space, low on budget, in need of a quiet practice solution, or those who travel a lot.

These kits can be easily stored, folded, transported, and played on a tabletop or floor. They generally contain everything you need to get started, including foot pedals. You can also play using inbuilt speakers or connect your headphones for quiet practice.

Roll up drum sets are a great gift for both adult and kids that would like to practice and record playing drums.

MIDI roll-up kits allow you to connect your roll up drums to your laptop and record your beats. This can be great for tracking your practice, as well as recording into music production software.
