  • TD-9, VH-11 and double bass pedal setup

    Is anyone using the TD-9 with a VH-11 and double bass pedal and does he (or she) has a good and comfortable setup? If so, do you have a picture of it?

    I'm struggling with it, maybe because of the dimensions of the MD-9 rack. I either have one bass pedal half under the snare, so my legs hit the snare constantly, or the hihat is jammed to the stand or just too far off to use it comfortably when playing 16th's on the hihat or the hihat has to be put in between the two bass pedal which would be hard to do.

    I just ordered a VH11, and I have a TD9 with double bass pedals, so if I find a solution (I hope I do) I'll let you know.

      I've got that exact setup. I keep my double kick width the same as it would be on my acoustic kit. The hihat pedal is sidled right up to the left bass drum pedal and the rack is outside of the hiihat stand, practically touching it. I also find the hihat to be a little farther away than I prefer, but I've just accepted it. I don't know that there is any 'solution', unless Roland actually increases the size of the VH11 to 13" or 14".

        Hi Eric;

        What I did was offset the kickpad to the far right of the frame ( Just inside the right rear leg of the mds9 rack). This keeps your right leg from not hitting anything. I have not added the VH-11 but I have enough room for my second bass pedal on the left as well as my hi hat pedal.

        VH-11 real soon!

        cheers

            Do you mean you moved the kickpad all the way to the right (so it's just left to the right leg of the stand) or did you put the leg inside the frame of the kickpad?

            Hi Ham, I've never seen one of those (didn't even know they made them: hihats which can be used by someone with no legs ). But seriously, might be worth looking into.

                Yes, but my head is not as fast for doing that really smooth double bass songs! By the way, seeing your other thread: is your snare attached to the MDS-9 rack or is mounted it on a snare-stand.

                  it's attached on the mds-9 rack.

                    OK, but it doesn't look like it's attached directly to the snare tube. Did you attach another tube?

                        Hi,
                        have a look at my kit here: http://www.vdrums.com/forum/album.ph...&pictureid=389 I'm going to swap places with the floor tom and the right hand hihat for testing. I beleive that doing so will leave my right arm in a more relaxed position for playing the hihat.

                        I have extended my MDS-6 rack with 2 1,5" pipes at the edges, and it should resemble a MDS-9 pretty at this point.

                        Thanks,

                        Kari
