  • TD-9KX vs TD-9SX

    Hey all,

    Been a long time between posts.

    Just found out about this great little module.

    What's the difference between the TD-9SX and the TD-9KX?

    Is it just a name difference for US and global markets and nothing else ?

    Cheers!

    Yep, just a name peculiarity between the US and the rest of the world. K and S seems to mean the same thing.

      Some say it is the difference between "Set" and "Kit". Just a regional thing.
      I say that they are completely different. And the SX is far better since it is further up the alphabet.

        Uh 'K' is first, so that means it's better!!!

            Definitely not. Let's take a look. K = 11 and S = 19, both prime numbers and odd. But represent them hexidecimally, the language of computers, and you get B and 13. B is the 2 letter of the alphabet and 2 is even! 13 is still prime, still odd and is the day of my birth. Ipso facto, the 'S' is so much better it defies logic.

            Yes, rubbish, see above. But I am not a Yankee, I am a Clevelanbd Indians supporter. That's like mixing up Chelsea and Manchester.

              Yes, but if take into account the aciprocating pendulum and the angle at which the radial arm reaches at K-S<=/radius*Pi, then subtract the gravitational pull when the tide at on the west coast is at the lowest point. Then take the root of the derivative when the limit gets closest to zero....DAMMIT S is STILL better!!! Curse you!!!
              Fine...Canadians make better drummers so THERE!! I'm just kidding, Dave Weckl is god.

                From Roland US website -
                The TD-9SX components are packaged in two boxes as follows:

                * Box 1 (TD-9KX)
                (1) TD-9 Percussion Sound Module with multi-pin cable harness and module mount (1) PD-105BK Mesh Pad (3) PD-85BK Mesh Pads (1) KD-8 Kick Pad (1) CY-5 Dual-Trigger Cymbal Pad (1) CY-8 Dual-Trigger Cymbal Pad (1) CY-12R/C V-Cymbal Ride/Crash Pad (1) FD-8 Hi-Hat Control Pedal
                * Box 2 (MDS-9)
                This includes the drum set rack, and the clamps and arms for both the pads and cymbals.
                - so the "S" represents the set with the stand. The "K" means the box with the kit stuff in it. Or something like that.

                  Not really. They are truly two different names for the same product. It probably just ships in the TD-9KX box in the US. In Europe, a TD-9KX comes with an MDS-9 also.
