  • I got attacked...

    ...by GAS!

    I went to the music store today and guess what: I came home with a VH-11 and Gibraltar hihat stand ! From the beginning I didn't like the CY-5 as a hihat (did I mention that anytime here?) and the VH-11 is a big, big improvement to me. Really: it's great! I'm using the CY-5 as a crash now, it's fine for that.

    So, it's gonna be a great weekend!

        I also did the same thing a few months ago and let me tell you, you will absolutely love the VH11 over the CY-5 in terms of playability.....there's just no comparison.

        The VH-11 comes as close to the real thing.

        Congrats.....what's going to be your next purchase?

          Hi eric, I think you will also love the CY-5 as a splash - seems to be made for that.

            Stop it, guys, just stop it!! I already have that VH-11 seed planted in my fool head and I've been trying like mad to convince myself that the CY-5 is just fine. Sigh. I'm doomed.

                  Wow, I really like the VH-11. Should have bought it earlier!

                  Let's see what's next on my wishlist: double bass pedal and another tom (probably get a PD-125 to use as a snare and use the PD-105 as a tom). That's probably all for short term. I want to expand my kit as I grow as a drummer, not vice versa.

                    What do you currently have as snare and tom? When I bought my td6-kv, it came with 1 mesh pad only - PD-105 as the snare but within a few months, I upgraded my snare to the pd-125, moved the pd-105 to the bass tom and upgraded the 2 toms to pd-85.

                    I've got all mesh pads and do prefer them over the rubber toms.

                    It looks like you are following the same path as me...

                      Cool on the upgrade eric! I've heard nothing but good things about that VH-11.

                      You know, this GAS thing is bad. I've notice that several of the recent new members to the board have said, "I just got a TD-20!" Now, this is bugging me a bit as I have been edrumming now for about 3 years and I don't have a TD-20. I am using a TD-12 that I have been totally happy with. Yet, when you combine all these new edrummers starting out with a TD-20 with all the talk about the TD-20 expansion card, I am now feeling that I am missing out on something very important even though I don't play in a band or record or anything anymore. I just play for my own pleasure and jam with friends! I don't NEED this upgrade, yet I MUST have it! It never ends!

                          My TD-9KX came with one PD-105 and three PD-85's. I'm happy I went with all mesh when I bought the kit.

                          Thanks Fullback! And I guess GAS may never end once you get struck by it!

                            Hi Eric, I'm on the same plan.
                            over time, I'll have the pd125 as a snare and move the 105 over to the right side. Hopefully I can cram a second 105 on the same rack extension.

                            Either that or grab an MDS-12 stand and opt for 4 X pd105's and 1 pd125 for the snare.

                            How do you like your VH-11 ????
                            TD-9KX 3 X PD-125/ 2 X PD-105/ 4 X PD-85/KD-85/KD-120/KD-8/Cy-5/cy-8/3 X cy12R/C and 1 CY15R 2 X CY14C and a good ol VH-11!

                              Hi RC, the VH-11 is just great. And having the CY-5 as an extra crash is just what it's meant for (I think).

                              I also like the thought of having 4 PD-105's for toms, but for now I cannot justify the upgrade from the PD-85's would cost. And what to do with PD-85's?
