  1. 1. A Brief History of American Drum SetPresentation by William “Billy” M. Baker
  2. 2. Creation of the Drum Set• Military Brass Bands used to play with multiple drummers• Over time they started playing indoors and using fewer players out of A Brass Band in a parade necessity• Drummers were forced to play multiple percussion instruments simultaneously• The arrangement they used for this purpose evolved into what we now call a “Drum Set”
  3. 3. • Drum Sets went on to incorporateDrum Set Setup cymbals in addition to snare, tom-toms, and a bass drum • Drum stands and foot-operated pedals helped to develop the drum set and make it more practical • These developments enhanced the playability of the drum set • Drummers soon became much more than just time keepers
  4. 4. Jazz Age• Drummers reached new heights with the development of Jazz• Grooves played in a “swing” broken triplet form• Improvisation, solos, and media open the door to fame for drummers• Famous drummers of the time included Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa (hear his intro to Sing, Sing, Sing now!)
  5. 5. Rock Music• Drum equipment becomes more sturdy and durable for louder playing• Grooves include straight eighth notes and a strong back beat.• Sets become more diverse: include multiple bass drums and new varieties of cymbals• Famous rock drummers include John Bonham, Neil Peart, and Ringo Star (pictured here)
  6. 6. Funk• Similar instrumentation to Rock, but different feel• Drummers put more groove in their grooves with syncopation and sixteenth note driven cymbal patterns• Music for people to dance to• David Garibaldi of Tower of Power makes new strides incorporating Latin influences
  7. 7. So Many Other Styles As Well!• Disco• Latin (Samba, Bossa Nova, etc.)• Blues• Country
  8. 8.
