  • How Hard Can I hit?

    Hey, Here's something I probebly dont want to test out in a store. How hard can I hit the pads without damaging them? Are they extremely fragile, because I hit fairly hard (cymbals and drums) and I would rather not be breaking pads that cost $200+. Can they withstand a pretty good beating or should I plan on lightening my touch?

    Oh, btw, who made those demo's? They sounded great.

      Well Jarek, I made those demo's. I'm glad you liked them. I gotta tell you that if you are going to accept my invitation to play my V's, you are going to have to lighten up that heavy handed sticking. Paul's answer is on target but I've not tested their limits.

        I posted the answer there... You also might want to look into playing smaller sticks. I use 5s usually but I've switched to 7s on Vs. Two benefits: 1. lighter stick = lighter strike (more or less) and 2. lighter stick = quicker movement around the kit.

            That was more of a general question, I do have control over my dynamics. It was more of a, how much can they take, hypatheticly type thing. Where do you live? If you wouldnt mind Id like to test out your v's if you are close by. Ill be gentle.

              Word to the wise: Some have said that hitting these pads hard -- I mean the Roland PD-7/9/5 cymbal pads -- have led to wrist problems. You want to avoid that.

                Well, when you sign your name as Paul, I use all my roket scientest skills and conclude your name is Paul. (pssst. did I get it right?) By the way, are you still working with Arriflex 16 and 35mm motion picture cameras?

                  Boingo, when making the demo did you use sounds from the TD-10 Expansion Card or was it a standard TD-10?

                    Ummm, I've done a lot of demo's. Just for the record, exactly which demo's are you referring to? I wouldn't want to take credit for someone else's demo's. That would ruin my reputation you know.

                      The Demo's on this page....

                      Did you do the Jazz, electronic, fusion and/or rock?

                        You're really making me feel bad. I am constantly clowning. They are Roland samples and are in the TD-10. They are the original TD-10 samples. Since you don't have one yet, you wouldn't know. I'll use 's more often. The technical answers are straight up.

                            Didn't you play them, Boingo? I always tought you did for mr. Roland. What a disappointment
