  • PD-140DS Mesh Head

    Hello...
    Does the Roland PD-140DS use the normal Roland mesh head (Roland Powerply Mesh Drumhead - 14 inch | Sweetwater) or does it require a special one since it's digital?
    Thanks...

    In short no, that head is a 2-ply head. the PD-140DS uses a 3 ply head, Drum-Tec has them https://www.drum-tec.com/replacement...land-PD-140-DS

      It's a weird 3 ply head where the center layer is not under tension I think. However I know people here have tested drum tec 3 ply heads and apparantly they work well. However I'd get the original head that the drum was made for.

        How would one go about getting said head?
        The only one I've seen to purchase are the Powerplys.

          Either go through the retailer you bought the drum at, or contact Roland directly. Or use the drum-etc link above.

            Erik at Edrumcenter also carries the 3-ply Mesh head for the digital snare, if you live in the US.
