  • Need help choosing between TD10 and TD8 kit !!!

    Hi all,
    I need to get a electronic drum kit to aurment my acoustic live.
    I need to find out once and for all the main differences between the TD10 and TD8 ( besides the prices ). The salesman told me that the TD8 is a newer version with better sounds than the TD10 without the expansion option BUT the TD8 already have most of the sounds of the expansion board already included onboard...is this true ??? Thanks

    Yes it's true. The TD-8 has more sounds than the TD-10 even with the expansion board. The TD-8 also has a larger sequencer. However, if you like to tweak the sounds a bit more, want to have some effects and or the new cymbal pads with trigger functionallity then the TD-10 exp. is your way to go. But don't forget the price difference

      Perhaps the TD-8 sounds also were developped in association with Spectrasonics. Who knows...

      But if you own both the td-8 and td-10 and state that the sounds are different, I believe you.

        Another consideration is the number of outputs you want. The td-8 has 4 and the td-10 has 8. I have the td-8 and it is fine for me but I wouldn't mind some more outs. IF you are looking for a module to use with your acoustic drums the td-8 will probably work just fine.

        You should decide what you want out of the module. Acoustic sounds, percussion sounds, are you going to use the sequencer ect.? Once you figure out exacly what you want out of the module check out all the modules including the dm, ddrum, and buy the one that best meets your needs.

        good luck
