  • backup module?

    how many of you guys have ever had a module die or flake out on you at a gig and wish you'd had a backup?

      I gigged with TD-10 module for at least 15 years no back up no problem [thank goodness for Roland quality.]

          Never had a module die. If I'm gigging outside the country I'll have a spare anyway. Had Alesis pads and TrapKat pads die, but easy enough to work around those issues.

            Yep, I've had this raised by bands I've played in who have no experience of e-drums and were nervous about live failure.

            FWIW my experience is like most here - never had a failure live of TD-20, TD-30 or TD-50 (and I kept the old models as backups )

            Once at a rehearsal when I had been doing a huge amount of sound editing the previous day on a TD-30 the module went a bit strange at the rehearsal so I did Factory Reset then reloaded everything from the memory card backup and all was perfect thereafter - only took a few minutes to do that.

            Oh, and once I sat on my TD-20 years ago when setting up at a gig and bent some of the pots - still worked perfectly though

            Whatever you think of Roland they build solid gear.
            TD-50 upgrade kit, Jobeky Prestige Custom shells, Paiste signature cymbals, DW Hardware, Allen & Heath mixer, pair Lewitt LCT 140 overhead mics, Fohhn Xperience III PA, Fohhn XT-33 active speaker drum monitor, Porter & Davies BC Gigster drum throne monitor

              Rick Allen triggers and mics a real kick and snare "just in case".situation allowing ,that's probably the best meat and potatoes solution.

                Terrible time to bring this up. I have a gig tomorrow night

                I have a TD20 that I bought used and have spent a LOT of time tweaking the sounds and building kits (25 kits for 50 songs)

                I have a TD10 that I could use in an emergency but I have no kits built.
