  • IS THE TD 7 GOOD ENOUGH LIVE?

    I was wondering how the TD7 is live - I have currently only used headphones.

    Has anyone on this BB used it live - if so please let me know how you got on. I am hazarding a guess that the cymbal sounds are as bad live as through headphones.


    Cheers. Damien.

      just wondering what your comment meant?

      I made the choice to buy the td7 as it was only £250 and it will be a good interim measure until my TD8 VDRUM kit turns up!!!!

      Roland seem to be quite slow delivering in this country - are you having the same problem in the US?

        Is it good?

        The module? yes. It will work okay.
        The sounds? compared with todays Roland modules: Mmmm... there are better sounds in my opinion. I think the Roland td-6 will blow away the td-7. And it's not an expensive module as well.

        Cymbal sounds always have been a weak point for e-drums. Especially for Roland.

          I also recommend the TD-6. I plan to buy one as a backup to my TD-8!

            I have used a TD7 live, at the time I thought it was not bad, however I now have a TD10exp and there is a difference.

            If you want to use the TD7 you will need a good sound system – see JBL or Mackies via the search facility – I also tried the TD7 with acoustic cymbals and had mixed feelings about it, most of the time I was happy, but in quieter gigs it did not sound right.

            There are some great bass, and tom sounds in the TD7

            If I was going to use the TD7 live today I would be happy with the system I‘ve got
            2 * JBL G2
            compressor
            and sound reinforced by band’s PA

            Basically give it a try

              I also did use the TD7 live for about 5 years. I have the same experience as Daveb. I liked it a lot, although I wasn't happy with the symbol and crashes sounds. The TD10 is a lot better on stage. When I bought the TD10 I did one stupid thing, I trade my TD7 module. I only got a little money for it and now I need some extra triggerinputs!!
