  • How can i brace my roland pd-10?

    i recently bought two roland pd-10 bass drum pads. they are from the 80s and they look really cool...but they don't have any legs. i need to find a way to attach legs or buy some old roland legs. if anyone knows anything that could help, I NEED TO HEAR IT!!

    How big are the holes for the legs? If they have a 7/8" diameter you may be able to fashion some legs using some long Pearl tom mount arms. It works with the older Simmons bass drum pads, not as well as normal bass drum legs, but they'd be at least stable enough to use.

      Do you have any pics of them?That may be helpful for suggestions.Also,what the size of the shell,depth,circumference,etc. may help to.There are a coupl of engineres in here,so we may just come up with something.

        I think this is a set of drums that used the bass drum he's talking about. The dual trigger pads were called PD-21's, and the 4 trigger pads were called PD-31's. The bass drum was the PD-10. I think.. Unfortunately you can't see the bass drum very well in this pic. If I recall correctly though, it takes the same standard Pearl size stands that the Simmons did. 7/8" right? I have several of the 31's, and just saw 3 more for sale at GC used... I think they were $25 each.

          Correction Louis! The PD-21 is a single trigger pad, not a dual trigger and the bassdrum pad from this serie is a PD-11 and not a PD-10.

          This is my first (e)drumkit, which I have sold last year. It's a PD-11, 2xPD-21 and 2xPD-31

            I sure am glad modern day EDrums are a thousand x's more aesthetic (and functional)! No offense, MPCman...

                NOT!

                The less they look like drums the better. See the thread about "modern day EDrums" looking like toys (they really do)...

                      i found a link on this site that has an "ok" picture of the bass pad. http://www.edrums.com/roland.htm
                      it's the second picture down with the gray bass. if some one could tell me how to get the other pictures out i could show you the other side.

                          Gladly ! You need to digitalize your pics, NIN, so that you can load them onto your napster using computer machine you have there. Unless you have a scanner? I'll assume you don't. Go to a Kinkos, Safeway, Longs, Walgreens, etc. and have them put your pics (your negatives) onto a picture CD. Once you load your pics onto your PC, (assuming you don't have a website, like moi) goto: www.zing.com . Follow the simple instructions to create a photo album or simply right click on your image, properties, then copy and paste the http link into your message. Use before your link and after your link. If posting a lone pic use [img] as your prefix and [/img] as your suffix. That's the surest way I'm hip on.


                          Was that thorough enough, Boinger?
