  • Any help for a newbie to electronic drums?



    Hey whats up everyone.

    I just went to the shop today and traded my 9pc. Tama Kit in on a V-Pro kit. I did much research on the drums, and the module that's with it.

    Now my questions, is there any hidden dangers with these drums? Things like trigger weakness, or the mesh heads not holding up with heavy hitting and so on.

    I just regestered to the forum today so I really havent had the time to sort through any posts to read about all this.

    I guess what I am asking is for all the "masters" if you will, to e-mail me any help or comments about the kit I bought. And where to get the patches and everything else I might need in the future.

    One more thing, then I will stop babbling.

    Reguarding double bass. I can not go with out it! LOL!! Anyway, the kit I bought has one bass drum trigger. Should I get another trigger and put two separate B-drum triggers on the floor, or would it be cheaper/easier to use a single mesh style trigger or something similar and use double bass drum peddles?

    Thank you for any help you can give and I hope I didnt drag my post on too long!

    Peace,
    ~ Justin ~

        I figured as much, thats why I said for everyone to e-mail me instead. But I am searching right now anyway.

        Thanks,

          Good man. You just passed the first step in becoming an edrummer.

            I bought an extra KD-7 kick trigger when I got my V-Pro Kit and it works well for me. I have read somewhere on this site that the new mesh-head kick is much more responsive (read: has more bounce) than an acoustic kit, but I don't actually know that first hand. Even if it is/does, you'd be better served to try one out at your local music store and garner your own opinion.

            Enjoy the new V's.

                  Don't get the tired bouncey mesh ones that all these guys use. You're not banging out Slipknot on all that bouncey sh|t.

                  Plus, with the KD-7s, you can save some money and buy two more kick pedals and 2 more KD-7s, and you can have double-kick with two different sounds at your disposal at all times. Five pedals at your feet - HiHat controller and FOUR kick drums.

                  THAT, my friend....is double bass magic.

                    LOL!! Well I do play Slipknot, and some Fear Factory too, and I understand what you are saying!!

                    Although my drumming is not that far along, I will attempt to do such a task someday!

                        , plenty of , and , , triggered acoustics, , and a plethora of PA blah blah freakin blah...I mean does anyone care about the specifics of pedals, speakers, processors, hardware or anything that I'm using?? :confused: Hmmm, maybe this is an appropriate place to mention that I tried out a new cymbal stand the other day...

                            You know I use "they Rule" or "It Rules" all the time, but it just hit me. Who or what do they rule???? Is it that they rule over all other kick triggers???? Are they good rulers or bad ones? Are they kind to the poor other triggers that they rules over? Or are the mean and wicked type rulers???

                            Why am I afraid of the KD-120 all of a sudden?

                              Because it's ridiculously overpriced?
