  • Rolad TD-8 Vs. Yamaha DTX2U

    Recently purchased a Pintech concert cast series e-set & now in the market for a new module.
    My experience w/ e-modules have not gone beyond the TD-7.
    Currently looking at both the Roland TD-8 and Yamaha's DTX2U module.
    I will be using my set strictly for home practice & light studio work.
    Any preference from experienced users of either one would be deeply appreciated.

    Just listen to both modules. Although the Yamaha DTX is an old chap some people prefer it over the Vdrums because of the sounds. Some others don't. So listening yourself is the only way to go

      That's about the best advice I've read on this site.

        Thanks for the suggestions, although right on the money .... was hoping for a little more personal insight.
        Time to get familiar with both & off to the music stores!.

        Thanks again .... Dana

              The DTX has a great function, if you set up a pad to play a chord or bass line, when you start a song and hit the melody pads, the chords and bass line change automaticaly so you can play these parts as you play along to the songs on the DTX.

                  Boy! .... Wish I could, but like many I'm with house, wife & children (not totally a bad thing ... but very limiting).
                  A conclusion to my saga ... went to my local
                  "Guitar Center" & picked up the Roland TD-8.
                  Tried both modules with varying degrees of pro's & con's, a tough decision for sure.
                  Yamaha had some nice sounds & features as noted by a few of you ( many thanks!) yet the TD-8 seemed to be the best fit for me.

                  Added note: As suggested elsewhere on this site, search the web for the best price & then bring it with you to the "Guitar Center", they will indeed match or sometimes better that price!.
                  Walked out yesterday with a new TD-8 for $675.00.
                  Perhaps not the best price I've heard of but certainly very reasonable.
