  • Convert from A to E ???

    I'm thinking' to convert from A to E with (RT-10S for the snare and the toms. What can I do to silencing the rims?
    Does the triggers(RT-10) works as well as the V-Pads(PD-105,PD-85)?

    I have two choices but i can't decide...
    The 1st choice is to buy the Roland TD-9KX and the 2nd choice is to convert my Acoustics to Electronics with Roland TD-9 sound module, RT-10S x4 & RT-10T triggers, V-cymbal pads (CY-12R, CY-8, VH-11), TDRUM mesh heads (14" for the snare, 10",14",18" for the toms & 22" for the bass drum)...

    Which kit has better results? Technically speaking...

    Look up Jman's projects. He uses clear tubing split down the middle to silence rims.

    The RT series will not give you positional sensing. (I don't know if the TD-9 supports PS or not but the TD-12/20 does) The biggest advantage to the center mount triggers is PS.

    Technically, I have seen DIY kits that trigger as good, if not better, than the Roland Pads. I have also seen a lot worse. It is a trial and error process to get it just right. The TD-9 kit will trigger fine right out of the box.

    The big question is whether you want the look and feel of a full size kit and are willing to go through some effort to get it to work right.
