    This is my sound system for my drums. It is a bit much ($) for starters (or not, depends on you) but it will put a permanent smile on your face. You might not need or want a system like this - it is very strong. I am sure others here can give you some input regarding a lesser system, if you want.

    Amp: Crown K2 http://www.crownaudio.com/amp_htm/k.htm

    Speakers: MI-Series Cerwin Vega V-253 http://www.cerwin-vega.com/products/index.html

    There are no negatives that I can find in my system....well except the fact that my system can tear your head off, if pushed.


    What is the most important getting the amp or speakers right?
    IMHO, the right impedance matching. Here is some info on it.

      Thnx,

              I use a Crate keyboard amp that has an EQ so I can adjust for the sound I like. The bass apm you may lose the highs you want.

                Unless you have an outboard mixer, then EQ per channel (in use) can be applied.

                    Ok so it sounds like a keyboard amp with EQ is a great option.

                    What sort of output do you have, is the wattage high enough?

                    Also does anyone use effects modules to enhance the sound, if so why and which ones?

                      300 watts per channel more than enough for me...

                      BBE Maximizer for sure and noise gate.

                          Thanks guys this has been really helpful, also did some searching in post postings.

                          outcome, well I used the vdrums at a jam session last night FOH was a great sound (we have EV FOH speakers. However the roland keyboard amp I was using as a monitor was naff. So bought a JBL EON 15G2 today (chosen over mackie because I got a better deal.

                          It looks as if I am on my way, next item will most probably be a sound maximiser.

                            Svook, this one's for you. You posted this a while back:

                            "I am using a Focusrite Compounder, Drawmer DL251, Alisis 3630, BBE 882, Aphex Aural Exciter C2- model 104, Lexicon MPX-1 and Behringer Tube T1951 EQ."

                            How about a diagram? I know this would be a lot of work, but I am interested in how you run your V-drums through all this equipment. The more detail the better.
