  • Hpd-10

    I dont know if the hpds are considered v drums or not, and I couldnt find a thread about them - except for one 10 vs 15 that quickly degenerated into a marriage: plus and minus topic,

    so, can someone direct me to a thread about the 10, or can we start one here,
    mostly extolling all its features and clapping ourselves on the back over our cleverness in buying one...

    I'll start: I love having the 10 in the living room, under the sofa, where i can pluck it forth and drum during sport matches...producing my own samba section as it were...

    and one negative: I wish it had bodhrans...

    anyone want to join me here?

    I have an HPD-15, which I love. I keep it in my office and play it when the mood strikes me. I love having access to all sorts of hand drums I don't know how to play! Every once in a while I will sit in with a blues band and play percussion on it. Good times.

    And, strictly speaking, Bodhrans are not hand drums.

      you mean because it is beaten with a striker? I call it a hand drum because it held by the hand, but I get your point, that definition would exclude congas...on the other hand the 10 has taiko drums that are beaten with sticks..

      I was on my way to get a 15 when I noticed that the 10 was coming out, and was considerably cheaper, about half of the 15, as well as being somewhat sleeker...

      bt, great fun, yes...

        I play the 15 all the time. As a percussion accessory to a TD-10 kit at church and as percussion/full drums at prisons several times a month.

          It is odd that Taiko is in there but Bodhran is not. I wonder if one of the other instruments can be used to fake a Bodhran?

          d4e, I bet the HPD-15 is perfect for your situation. If you had the choice though, would yourather have the HPD-15 or an SPD-S? Just curious.

              I haven't used an SPD-S but I use all 21 triggers on the HPD-15 so I can't imagine it would be as useable for my situation.

                  I'm guessing, do i win a prize?

                    Complete novice, but isn;t the D-Beam moe of a gimmick than a useable trigger? (Just asking... I've only ever toyed with these.)

                      Actually I don't use the second outboard trigger (1 bass pedal).
                      15 pads
                      2 ribbons
                      d-beam
                      bass pedal
                      hihat (adding closed/partial closed sound)
                      split section of front right pad(dual zone). Extra sound.

                      So I guess I am only using 20 pads and a hihat but the 21st trigger is there on the outboard trigger jack.
                      (plus 4 more variations when you hold the front left pad to mute the other main pad sounds)

                      The D-beam while a gimmicky trigger is actually very useful for accent sounds and one-shot percussion accessories. It can also be used to control parameters (some interesting sound shaping) of other sounds but I haven't really gone there much yet.
