Who had the crazy idea of inventing the drums one day?
The origins are not so old, even if the snare drum was invented in the middle invented in the middle of the 19th century and the bass drum in the 17th century, both both in Europe.
Before, to have a percussion drum set in an orchestra, it was necessary to hire had to hire several musicians: one musician to play the cymbals, another to play the another to play the bass drum, a third for the snare drum, etc.
The bad tongues say that it is a stingy producer who invented the drums, tired of paying several fees for performances that could possibly replaceable by a single instrument...
What is more certain, and more probable, is that it is jazz musicians who are at the origin of the musicians who are at the origin of this original assembly of percussions, at the beginning of the beginning of the 20th century. It is for this reason that we called these first sets these first sets were called 'Jazz'.
