  • Upgrading Roland TD-11K V-Drums pads?

    I'm about to buy my first electronic kit. The Roland TD-11K V-Drums V-Compact Series Electronic Drum Set DOUBLE COMPLETE DRUM BUNDLE for $1419.99 at Kraft Music.

    I want to know precisely what pads are compatible with the TD-11 Sound Module. All of them? For example, can I replace the PDX-8 pad as well as the three PD-8A pads with PD-100 (or PDX-100) and PD-120 pads? And can I replace the CY-5 and FD-8 with the floating hi-hat? What pads would one suggest for the best quality at the lowest cost? Also, there are ways of expanding the sound library on these kits, correct?

    All of them, at least the ones Roland make. You could replace any of the pads you mention with the alternatives you listed, including the hi-hat (VH-11 only).
    The PDX-100 is the best value-for-money Roland pad going right now. I'd focus on those if I were to upgrade.
    You can't expand the sound library on any Roland module. They are fixed at the factory. You can tweak the sounds in different kits to varying degrees, and for some modules, you can buy pre-set settings from VExpressions (VEX) for the TD-11 here: http://www.vexpressionsltd.com/apex.html

        Welcome to the forum, fractalofself!

        Have you considered getting a used TD-9 instead of a TD-11?
        ...more 'Bang for the Buck!'


        Happy Drumming!

            That's good to know. I had seen a table on the Roland site, I believe, that showed the compatibility of the pads among the modules but it just seemed to good to be true. But thanks for the tip. When the time comes, I will probably use the PDX-100 considering the affordability. I'll definitely look into the VEX presets. Thanks again.

              Thanks..I may be on here quite a bit in the near future considering I'll have the TD-11k in a couple of days and I'm bound to have a lot of questions. I decided to go with the Td-11 module because I reeeeeally wanted to go with the most affordable kit that had supernatural sound engine.
