    The TD-3 directly supports the PD-105 and PD-85 (PD-80R) in the trigger settings. Just buy them, plug them in, switch trigger types and go.

    You will only get the rim sounds on the snare input, however.

    When you buy the pads, you get everything you need. Just swap pads.

        Ash,

        You can use other brands of pads. I added Pintech mesh pads and a cymbal to my TD-3. They all worked well with my TD-3. I added a 12" snare, 3 mesh toms ( 1 12" and 2 10" toms) I added the 8" Mesh kick pad. The first thing I added was a Dingbat to use as a cowbell or other sound. I added a 14" Visulite dual zone crash. Everything worked well and it was much nicer to play on.

        I've since upgraded to a TD-12 ( much bigger learning curve) and put everything on a Gibraltar rack. I did have to send my ride back, a manufacturing defect or some shipping damage.....but the new kit is almost fully up and running. It's a very different experience on a much bigger rack.

                Ash,

                with the TD-3 you can do rim shots and cross sticking on the snare only. The TD-3 doesn't support dual triggered toms.

                If you wanted to do rim shots on the toms with a higher numbered module, you would have to make sure you got dual triggered toms. Brian of Hope Drums is VERY helpful with Pintech products. I got mine Pintech stuff from him. I was a little hesitant about buying the pads untried. The local GC didn't stock them. I ordered them on-line. I'm very happy with them.

                TD-12, Gibraltar rack, etc.

                    The module provides that capability, yes.

                    If I'm not mistaken, the Pintech dual zone pads require 2 inputs, so I'd be real careful about checking that out before laying out any cash...

                      If your gonna upgrade your snare. I suggest you look at a Roland PD-105 Dual Zone Pad

                      As for just needing single zone tom pads, yes you could just go with the Pintech Concert Cast Single Zone Pads for your toms

                        Not to sound like the unofficial Pintech spokesman but...

                        The current generation of Pintech drums would just use one input with a stereo cable.
