  • V drums in concerts with battery packs instead of mains power

    Hi,

    I am not sure whether this has ever been discussed but I was wondering whether anyone had any experience of using v-drums (mine is a roland TD20) in a concert/gig environment where there is no mains power. Is it possible to use battery packs instead? Do they come with amps/speakers etc..

    The reason I am asking is that I play in a brass band and we do several park jobs during the summer and it would beneficial to use the same kit as I practice on at home. However, there isn't usually main power in the middle of parks/garden fetes etc...

    Thanks in advance for any advice that you can offer.

    Just a thought:
    Try a small portable - https://www.electricgeneratorsdirect...enerators.html
    Really extreme - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bE2V8Mva9Hc

    You can get them cheaper elsewhere.

      You could use a car battery and an inverter. And, no, amps and speakers are not included in the standard kits - but maybe in some dealer's offers (but will be unsuitable for outside use!)

        warning: if you use a generator use a good spike protector / conditioner. ive seen two marshall tube amps get toasted running on a generator. one of them was mine.

          AGREED! I use one as part of my equipment.
