  • Need advice on buying mesh pads

    Come next week, I will be ready to drop 300 bucks on my kit to buy mesh pads. I need to know where I can find 3 good tom pads for my setup to replace my PD8/PD9 setup. If I can land 4, that'd be grand, but 3 would be enough. Any suggestions? I search on ebay, but yeah. it seems difficult for me to find something I can e assured of, then again it's like that everywhere, but I thought I'd ask here for some suggestions on what I should look for. Please help me whenever possible. Thank you.

    $300 for 4 pads? or even 3? why not 4 or 6 pads for $300?
    Where you ask? Try fantasy land drum sales dot com! Probably based in Nigeria somewhere!
    Seriously, you can find 2 pdx6 pads for $200 on ebay right now. Your aim will have to be really good as they are really small !

    Sorry for the sarcasm but really?!! , Everyone wants a Roland TD-30 KV VPro kit for under $500
    I'm sure there is a POed ex-wife out there looking to sell one along with a almost new Harley Davidson fat boy for under $1000 but by the time you find her she will have sold them last week!

    Good luck in your search

      Never say it can't be done because it's perfectly capable. Just have to care about it enough to look deeply into it. Can't limit one's self with two words and zero action. Besides, I have a couple of decent leads now and for all I know, they may be hot or cold leads, but Never know until the time sets it's self.

        OH D... I just saw the "Good Luck With Your Search" statement, and I want to say thanks. I do have a feeling something can come of this, and even if I have to step outside the price range a bit, that's fine too, it may take longer, but so be it. End results are what makes it worth it. I read your other thread post about the pDX100's and I am taking that into consideration seeing as that's a good concept.

          Good that you saw that post for the 3 PD85's. Sounds like a fair deal if not too scratched up!

            Who knows. If the scratches are where they can be touched up, then I am not too worried. I'm not too worried either way really. Their performance is what matters first. I can always refurbish their appearance.
