  • Crrrrrraaaack

    Hey all. I had my first battle wound yesterday night. FYI...it IS possible to overtighten your mounts. As I was tightening my TD-8 module, I hear crrrrack. Nothing more disheartening than that.

      My friend drove over his Vstudio in his car a couple of weeks back. It made a very similar noise!

        Was that on purpose, or by accident? I hear they make for good traction if you are stuck in a muddy ditch. (hey, just trying to get to a hundred)

          Funny you say that Steve I did the same thing about a year ago to my TD 8 module .Well I didn't but I sat it on the ground in a case (soft bag) and a friend ran it over. Luckly my tech is real good at circut board repair (38 solder breaks) and he made it useable and my insurance claim made me enought to get me a TD 10 exp on ebay so it all worked out for once. I am not using the td 8 much anymore the td 10 is much better live for me with seperate outs. Well theres my story from the road . See YA

            Once I saw a woman accidentally back her car over a violin. It made more of a "bbbbbbbbbbbbrrrrrrrrinnggggg" sound along with a loud crack! Splinters everywhere!

            The neighbor lady backed over her cat a few times when we were kids. Y'know the old, "I think I hit something. Better pull forward... There it is AGAIN!" routine. I was fortunate to NOT witness that event.

              Maybe Roland was in your neck of the woods sampling to get all those really cool drum sounds.

                I saw all of this talk about running over drum modules, so I had to try it.. I set up my ddrum 3 on one side and my ddrum 4 on another...I got a running start and WHAM.... I must have launched 3 feet in the air....however since the ddrum3 is a bit taller than the 4, I didnt get a square launch and eventually rolled to the right... I landed square on my roof and totalled my vehicle...

                I went back to see what happened to the brains....you guessed it... not a scratch or dent. Steel casings I suppose.

                  Oh and in case you're interested..the amount to replace a broken mount on a V set is $20.00. What a rip! Roland says that it is not a part covered under warranty. This ranks right up there with not giving us the instructional video with our kits and charging us $50.00 after we just spent $3,000. Way to go!
