  • TD-30KV purchase... where, how, why, etc

    Fellow drummersÖ I was fortunate to recently receive some inheritance. I already know I want to upgrade from my current TD-15K to a TD-30KV. I will have the 15 permanently set up for the bands weekly rehearsals. Iíll use the 30 for home practice and gigs (man Iím tired of the tear down/set up routine).

    I will need to replicate buying the throne & foot pedal. Alan Vexís kit is inspiring and will probably expand on extra cymbals (Can I leverage the extra's somehow?)

    I will talk to both to Sweetwater and Kraft and see what kind of bundle I can get.

    I was thinking of approaching my local Guitar Center?

    Iíll visit eBay, but only to look for connections. Iím not going to buy used or from an individual. I need some protection for a little while.

    Iím seeking suggestions from you all on where and how to shop for the best deal/value for the money. And maybe things I havenít thought about with the kit.

    I think it will be soon. Before Christmas? After the New Year?
    Thanks in advance

    Congratulations on your inheritance, macarina! - it appears you made quite a buck!

    The best value for the money would be a new TD-30 module, and the rest bought Used (cymbals, rack, pads) combined.

    As to 'Why':
    You prefer Modeling over Sampling. You are already familiar with navigating a TD-module. You have some completely different reason.
    Hence you will know why, if you set your sight on a TD-30. Happy bargain Hunting!

      Also...don't forget about RMC http://www.rmcaudiodirect.com/ Calling them usually yields the lowest prices that the others struggle/or reluctant to match.

      I agree RMC and also try Sweetwater (SW used to deal better in the past than they do now not sure what changed).
      Good Luck
