  • YAMAHA DTX V.2 or ROLAND TD-8???

    I have a ROLAND TD-8 electronic drum module w/PD-9 dual trigger pads,etc, and I also have a YAMAHA DTX V.2 w/DS11 kit. I would like to know your opinions of which is the better, and please explain why. I'm a guitarist not a drummer, so am not as keen as you players out there on it's individual capabilities. I plan on using this mostly for recording/composing, and practice as well. Also opinions on pads. I appreciate you sharing your knowledge. Thanks!

    TD-8 because of the great sound and sensitive trigger inputs. (much better with mesh)
    DTX because of it's ability in the Midi department

    Put em bothtogether.

      I don't understand the question: if you already do have both, then you know which is the better one yourself? I mean: personal taste is the most important thing, not?

      Theoretically, I would go for the Roland td-8. More contemporary sounds, room settings, sequencer, and the triggering (sensitivity/dynamics) standards from this century.

        Thanks for your op's so far. Keep 'em coming. Sounds like the TD-8 is better w/triggering sensitivity, but the DTX gets points for flexibility, etc. Maybe I will put them both together on my recently acquired huge Gibralter rack stand.
