  • Which kit to own

    Hi gang, new to the form and need some advice. I'm a beginner drummer and currently own the HD-3. Love the kit and what it does, yet the size of the kit is too small for my size. I'm wanting to sell the hd-3 and upgrade, yet heres my question? I have no plans on recording or mixing, but want the large size kit of the TD-30k. Should I go with the td-15k and add a symbol and tom? Just don't think that the brain on the td-30 would be a waste for me.
