  • V-Club owner: Should I buy a TD-10?

    I stopped by a music store today to buy some sticks and happened to mention I play E's. The guy led me over to where he had a used TD-10 module (unexpanded) and said he wanted $600 for it. This seems to be a good deal to me.

    However, $600 very much a stretch to my budget after buying my V-Club set, though. I figure I can probably unload the TD-6 (either to him in a trade or on FleaBay) to recoup some of this. I'm strongly considering this.

    The one thing I'm wondering is are there actually features that the TD-6 has that the TD-10 doesn't? I know the TD-10 has the COSM modeling and various things that the TD-6 doesn't have. But the TD-6 is a much newer module, and I thought that it might have things not found on its older cousin.

    Or, said more simply, are there any compelling reasons to keep a TD-6 when I can probably get my hands on a TD-10? Finally, does anyone know if the TD-10 will fit on my V-Club's mount for the TD-6? Are the holes in the same spot?

    I am very close to going back and buying it, but I wanted to hear some opinions on if $600 is a good price for an unexpanded TD-10 (assuming it's in decent working condition) and if there is any reason whatsoever that I'll prefer the TD-6 to the TD-10. The guy said he offers a 30 day guarantee if it's broken or whatever, so I'm not worried about that.

    Thanks for any and all input!

    Oh, and if anyone has any comments on the sample quality between TD-6 and TD-10 (someone who's tried both) that would be helpful too. I don't care all that much about the "gimmicky" sounds. I have heard the toms are much better on the TD-10, but I like some of the snares on the TD-6... Does the TD-10 still have good snares?

      so you'd better budget for buying one, too.
      Wow, the TDW-1 seems to be about $269 where I've looked... Any chance I'll be able to live without it, or is the base TD-10 really that lacking in the quality sounds department? $269 is a lot to pay for a ballad ride sound

      How bad is the S/N ratio on the TD-10? It amazes me that a higher-end product would have a lower S/N ratio than a lower-end product, but I guess that's what years of improvements will do.

      Also... Roland talks in very general terms with "improves sensitivity and dynamics in hi-hat and cymbals." Is it more that the TD-10 is really lacking in this department, or is it just that the TDW-1 improves on sounds that are already very good? Are the cymbals on my TD-6 going to sound better than the cymbals on an unexpanded TD-10?

      Thanks for your info! Still torn, though.

        Okay well I couldn't help myself, I went out and got the TD-10 and it seems to be in good working order. All inputs and outputs seem to be working.

        Feefer, I do think there's some more noise in the signal than on the TD-6, but not so much that I notice unless I'm listening for it.

        But I have yet to figure out all the various menus and such on the TD-10 (after finally mastering my TD-6!) and I'll be doing that shortly. Cymbals seemed to sound very dead until I selected "PD5" as the trigger type, I guess if I add on the TDW-1 I'll see the V-Cymbal models show up....

        Anyway right now things look good, just gotta find my way around it and decide if I like it over the TD-6. If not, there's always E-Bay. At least there's nothing wrong with it that I can tell, not bad for $636 after tax!

            Let me guess, you were going to try to talk me out of buying it and then ask me where it was?
