  • millenium pads vs roland


    i saw on www.thomann.de that u can get very cheaper than roland some pads from other manufacturs (like millenium), for your kit, like snares and kicks and i was wondering:

    1.Are they worth it (the difference with roland products is huge !)
    2.Could they be connected with the td-6v module i have
    3.has anyone here tried them is she/he satisfied ?

    how do u explain the price difference (just compare the 12' snares in example to see what i mean)

    Ex E-kits:
    ''Lernean Hydra'' ( a bounche of roland pads with a td-6 module)
    ''Lucy'' (Diamond electronic drums with a td-12 module)
    current E-kit
    ''Cherry Gretschy Lady'' (Gretsch Catalina Ash 6 piece A to E kit-Roland td20 module-A to E cymbals)

    " Mrs.Catalina'' (Gretsch Catalina maple 6 piece kit-Paiste signature+Masterwork custom made cymbals)

    They will work, and you can add mesh heads and rim silencer, but don't expect Roland quality: millenium drums with TD6

      I can't comment on the Milenium pads.

      On rare occasions I will put in a good word for Pintech products. I've been very happy with them and saved some money on them.

        I think that the newer 12 inch mesh drums are much better quality.n fact Thomman seem to be making alot of gear at the moment (just got the catalogue today). Definately worth checking out I think.
