      Thanks. Thereís some features that the Yamaha kit has over this, but I figure you canít go wrong with Roland. Plus itís a newer kit so the module and software should be solid.

        Congratulations!

        I try to be the voice of reason: Don`t upgrade the Ride and HiHat to fast: you will have fun with your TD17-KV, upgrade when it Limits your Playing. Which for a beginner is not going to happen for a Long time. Also, having new gear in a year or two will inspire and motivate you again and you will really feel the difference if you have played the current Setup for a while and then get nicer Additions.

        The TD-17KV is a really nice kit. Way better base for potential upgrading and a Long lifespan then the TD1-DMK: The TD-1 Module is just to limited.

            For the price you can't go wrong, nice choice, you basically got base sound from TD-50 much improved patch, with the essential base feature from td-50 and the importing wav engine, all package way lower then the td-50 sound module.

              So I just picked up my kit and I feel like I got a pretty solid deal. The online promotion changed to the free VH-10 hi-hat, but the store manager threw in a free drum throne because that was the online promotion earlier this week. Definitely giving this location a 5 star review.

                Just bought a TD-17KVX. Guitar Center had it on sale for $100 off. Also bought the RDT-RV throne and the RDH-PK-100 noise eater hardware pack (kick drum beater and high hat stand), but they won't ship until next month. Stoked!

                Now need to buy some headphones. Looking at the Roland V-Drum headphones vs. the cheaper but highly-regarded Audio-Technica M-50x. Any opinions on that?

                  I use Sony MDR 7506 headphones. They're commonly used in studios for a reason and less expensive than the M-50x.

                    I just bought the M50x's and they are excellent. They are super comfortable, they sound great, the cable is long enough without the need for an extension cable, and the headphones can handle the punch from the kick drums with no issues. (No buyer's remorse here!)

                      I bought those first for exactly the same reasons, but after trying them I returned them. I thought they were uncomfortable (the cushions weren't thick enough) and the cable was too short. And they didn't sound half as good as the M50x's, IMHO. To me, it was worth the extra money to have these cans sitting on my head so I enjoy my drums for longer periods of time. I just knew that if I had kept the SONY's, I was going to hate them and my decision to keep them in the first place. (But again, just my opinion.)
