  • TD-8 vs. TD-10


  • #2
    I'm of the opposite feeling. I love the td-10 (expanded) and the td-8 is just ok to me. The TD-10 seems to have a lot more GOOD sounds that I can make a lot of vaired kits with, where the td-8 has some good ones, but only a few in each category that seem usable to me. I have the td-10 exp at home and I use the td-8 at church (with multiple outputs for board processing).

      It's all a matter of budget and needs. If you can afford the exorbitant price of the TD-10, and you desire the extra features, buy it. Can't afford it or don't need it, buy something else. The TD-8 meets most peoples needs and $ for $ it would appear to be a best buy. That is a large part of the reason many people prefer or recommend it.

      I got the TD-10 before the TD-8 was offered. Now that I am used to the few extra features, I like them and am not anxious to give them up. I also like the larger pads that come with the V-Pro. While I may think that makes the brain and the kit that comes with it superior to the V-Custom, the fact is it is purly personal taste and to state one is better than the other is absurd.

      So, listen to what others have to say and promptly forget it.

        TD-10 exp all the way. I use both and the TD-8 just doesn't cut it for me. I can't seem to get the sounds tweaked as easy as I can on the TD-10. The 8 outs on the TD-10 is the best for recording just plug and play.

          I personally prefer the 'air drums'. I never miss a beat and they sound as good as I want them too.

              Absolutely! It's my favorite kit! It does get tweaked from time to time. I have to confess; I've been attending Tweakers Anonymous.

                My opinion (borrowed):

                10 is more, isn't it? I mean more than 8. I mean it's two more then, isn't it?

                When you're onstage, and you're all the way up...what have you got? You've got 8, that's what you've got ...8. Where can you go from there? Nowhere, ...you're at 8, aren't you?

                But if you've got then the 10.......

                        I think the TD-8 would sound better if it were done in Doubly .....

                        One of my all-time favorite movies!

                        "Mr. Derek Smalls on the bass! He wrote this!"

                        I sometimes wonder how much more black the TD-10 could be, and the answer is....none. None more black......

                          Nisse Nas, when the td-10 came out it was a smashing module for its time. Only: we had to wait long for the expansion board.

                          In the meantime Roland released the TD-8 with specs like:
                          - more sounds
                          - some better sounds
                          - larger sequencer (with songs)
                          - without the weak td-10 compressor and without some effects.
                          - without the COSM edits, which were discussable on the td-10 (turning a piccolo into a 36 inch deep snare).

                          All: for less money.

                          Okay, now the TDW-1 expansion board is there, people are still happy with the td-10. But don't forget you pay another $ 240 for it. And: there won't be a TDW-2 expansion.

                          Still need effects and more inputs? Go for the td-10. But I can imagine a TD-8 with a Lexicon MPX-100 will do the job as well. For less money.

                            Are there really more sounds in the TD-8? I know number wise there are, but isn't that because every snare on the TD-8 needs 3(Brass, wood, and steel) of them to equal 1 on the TD-10!! The question should really be: How many more sounds are there really??
