  • What would you do with $8,000...

    Howdy,
    It's been a few years since I've posted but I try to check in from time to time to see what's new. However, I need to get up to speed quick!! I've been playing a TD-10 exp kit at my church for the last several years and it is finally time to upgrade/replace. I found out today that I have a budget of $8,000 k to do whatever I want . The only restriction is that I must stick with the e's, no a's...and that's cool with me.

    So I'm certainly leaning towards a TD-20 kit, but that's only about $4,650 of my budget (from BPM). What would you do with the rest of the cash? What are some things/additions to your kit that you can't live without? HELP ME SPEND THIS MONEY...

    $8,000,000 for drums? What kind of budget is that? Any fool knows it will take at least 3 times that amount! Being the kind souls that we are, we will try to suck it up and help you out. (me thinks you may not have meant to add the K)

    It would help if you provide a little more detail. Does this include any amplification or outboard processors, DI boxes, mixing boards, etc? Do you do drama's or have a need for various unique sounds like glass breaking, gongs, triangles, vibra-slaps, etc? Some places rarely use them, others would if they had inputs for them. I think the TD-20 (& expansion board), handsonic, extra v-cymbals, kicks, etc, would be standard recommendations. Do you need to replace your pedals, snare stand, hi-hat stand and throne or will you be using the existing stuff?

    You might think about a TMC-6 to add additional cymbals or drums. They will require additional stands, clamps, boom arm's, etc. I'll let some more ambitious souls actually put values on this and think it through in depth. I'm much too lazy for that .

    Of course you have our sympathies. None of us would want to be in your shoes and be forced into this task.
    Kit Pic 1 Kit Pic 2 Kit Pic 3... And FOR SALE I have: 3 PD-9's, MDS-10 purple rack w/cables/pad and cym mounts. See classified posts for details or PM me.

      An $8,000 budget and orders that you MUST buy e-drums???

      I think I've finally found a church that makes me want to get up early on Sunday mornings!

      I think a monster kit (Hart or Roland) built around a TD-20 module is a given. Of course, you'll need a few extra cymbals and auxillary pads for good measure. Don't forget an SPD-S as well.

      But, depending on the size of your church band, how about adding a second percussionist with their own set of racked toms, maybe a smaller module, some Handsonics, maybe an SPD-S, too? Could be useful if you usually play a lot of music with extra percussion parts. It would free you to handle the primary drum duties on the main kit while letting someone else in on the fun to handle all the little extras.

      Just a thought! Wow, what a GREAT problem to have! Enjoy!

            Take it to Vegas and double it!

            Seriously though, what is the musical style and setup of this church? While I doubt so, there may be a need for a second TD-20 to expand for more triggers. Are there percussionists? Could you use other percussion modules and/or triggers? As someone already asked, what about amplification and monitoring? Personal monitoring?

                  I would buy the best a-kit I could get
                  Ask not whether something is useful -- ask what it is useful for.

                  Roland TD-12, Iron Cobra hihat stand and bass-drum pedal from TAMA. My accoustic kit is a Yamaha Power-V Birch with Paiste Alpha-series splashes, crashes, and hihat. My ride is a Zildjan Ping Ride, 20" I think.

                    TD-20 module with the pads of your liking. Axis pedals. Drum throne you could only dream of. Buttkicker. Speakers of your liking. Small(er) module for percussionist use (I kinda think about a setup of 2 Hart 12" toms with timbale sounds, a few cowbells (a to e-conversions?), PD-7/9's for other percussion sounds and some cymbals).

                    Wow, what a dream of a "problem"...

                      Hm, ok guys, easy easy on the consumption fury...

                      if its a church, and you can get the kit you want using half your budget, doesnt the church have any charities that need the money?

                      As a non-christian, i dont know about these things, but I would certainly think that any money you dont need should go to alleviate other less fortunatel people's distress...

                      sorry to inject a bit of morality into this context....I know, i am such a downer....

                        A TD20 with the VEX Drummers Dream and a laptop running Superior Drummer 2 along with some form of amplification would probably help you spend a large portion of your budget. You'd end up with a VERY versatile rig

                            Seriously, I would spend the rest on additional pads. And a real good bass drum pedal such as DW500, Pearl 850, or TAMA Iron Cobra power glide.
