    I'm surprised no members responded by now! Anyway, as far as cymbals all Roland cymbals will work with the module except the new Cy-18DR digital ride which only works with the new TD-50 module. So basically any of the Cy crashes or rides. Hi Hat: All the Roland FD pedals will work as well as the VH-10 and VH-11 Hi Hats. Pads is similar, all the Roland Mesh head pads will work except the Roland PD-140DS digital snare which only works with the TD-50, (also rubber Roland pads will work). However for pads since the TD-11 does not use positional sensing you will not get that advantage if using the center mount type pads. Mesh pads like PDX-6, PDX-8, PDX-12 are the less expensive side mount Piezo/Piezo mesh pads and really all you need and they have the advantage of NO center hot spot. But the center mount Piezo/Piezo pads like PD-108, PD-105, PD-128, PD-125, PD-85, PDX-100, etc. will also work. Many non Roland pads and cymbals will also work, so if you are looking at some non-Roland types just ask. Hope it helps.

        WOW guys thanks for the info. The wikipedia link is cool. I bookmarked that!
        So let me pose this question a different way. What cymbals (roland or not) are the best I can get for my td-11?
        I've seen some reviews of non-roland cymbal pads that have dead spots and other issues.
        I have a couple of sellers on ebay that have been very helpful about what they have that will work with my set.
        For the record I also made a couple of the splitters so I can run with 6 toms. so far i think that's going to work. Any thoughts on that?
        Thanks

          Actually, PDX-100 are center mounted Piezo/Piezo. They are great for the bucks

            Correct, and they have the same triggering components as the newer PD128s. (as opposed to the older style trigger components found in the PD125).

                So Let's throw this conversation in a completely different direction.
                Has anyone tried to trigger the zildjian low volume cymbals?
                I'd be curious how they did it.
