I couldn't find much in a search, so I was wondering if anyone has tried these:
How are the pads? Has anyone tried them with a Roland brain? Here's why: I talked the guy at Sigler Music and he quoted me a price of $45USD for a kick assembly and $35USD for a tom/snare, and you can use a mesh head (all 8"). For me, this means that it would cost me roughly $75 to try the bass drum, in hopes of a quieter practice/better feel than my TD-3 rubber kick assy. I was looking into a DIY project, but if these things work, I'd rather not bother with that right now. I'm sure the brain is crap and the pads are not as well-constructed as Roland's, but for 75 bucks, it might be worth trying it.
Any guidance is appreciated!
P.S.: I see the chinese have licensed the Simmons name and are marketing this same (ok, strikingly similar) kit as a "Simmons" for about 50% more than what Sigler Music is charging on Ebay. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/produ...it-?sku=443369 Or maybe Simmons actually designed the kit and the chinese manufacturing group (or wherever they're made) are selling it under a different name? lmao
