    It's a good option if you want the most cost-effective way of upgrading to 10" Roland Mesh pads.

    Currently, the 10" PD-105 in the UK retails for around twice as much as the PDX-8 (which retails around the same price as the 8" PD-85).

      The pdx is NOT repeat NOT a ten inch mesh head!

      It is the SAME mesh head and same surface area as the pd-85 (hence the pdx-8 designation.) the X means that they have moved the RIM triggers out a little bit (to a ten inch diameter, there is a plastic holding strip inbetween the mesh and the rim), making it easier to hit the head without hitting the rims...the RIMS are ten inches apart, but the mesh area is the same as the pd-85.

          I stand corrected.

          Technically, there's no reason you couldn't use them for tom pads.

              if you like the feel of it (I dont, but that is just my opinion)
              you can use it for whatever you want...remember, the module is 'blind', ie, you can tell ANY pad to be ANY sound...so put your PDX-8 where a tom is now, hit it a couple of times, and if you like the way it feels, then go for it, get as many as you desire....

                I have the same dilemma. The thing disturbing me is, I will end up with a mesh low tom and rubber high tom... Feels strange. And I don't want to move it to the floor because the floor is least used in my kit. It seems to me the sensible option is to get one more PDX-8 for the high tom...
