      The first (visual and tactile) impressions are positive. Seems quite sturdy and has a decent rubbery surface coating so it is not so loud. Definitely less loud than my previous China-wannabe Millenium MPS-200. But this also depends on where it gets hit. To me it seems quite fine. This was one of my main concerns.

      As I just got it yesterday, I did not spend enough time playing it to provide some more useful feedback in terms of sensitivity and triggering, etc. Used it very briefly to try some (bad) VST samples and was not really happy. Will have more time tonight so I'll just use it directly with the sounds from the module. That should be a decent raw test.

      The size is quite decent to fit any kit and the visual effect is pretty good, as expected.
      It mounts on a regular cymbal stand, no any extra bits and pieces required, which is quite convenient. It does not rotate due to the design. I use 7A sticks and they do not provide enough power to swing it much and cause any significant unexpected movement or rotation. It swings nicely. However, I keep it almost vertical so the effect is minimal but still quite natural. That part of experience goes nicely with the realistic movement of the Yammie cymbals.

        OK, it turns out the cymbal works great. The issue really was just a bad china sample last night. The cymbal behaves quite well. It is sensitive enough without any adjustments on the module. I think I have CY-8 settings there, or something like that. Haven't really touched those for a while, which is a good thing, I guess.
        The signal strength can be controlled not only by the power of the hit to the cymbal but also by the length of the stick touching the cymbal, as well as the location where it hits. I believe this would be exactly the same with an acoustic cymbal. After all, this is a piece of real metal with a rubber over it, and a sensor on the other side. So no wonder it behaves like a real metal cymbal.
        All in all, I'm quite happy with it! Triggera passed the first test for me. Guess now it's Krigg's turn. Sometime in the near future, I'll be getting one of those to mount on a bass pedal. The KD-9 gets really annoying by constantly moving away. There are probably other ways of solving that particular issue but I'm also slowly moving towards removing all the TD-11K parts and making the full kit available for sale now that I've assembled almost a whole another kit separately.

        mayhemkrew, thanks for that video once again. That was really the key argument for me.

          Glad I could be of some kind of help.

            This is like the opposite of my kit evolution - I went from a TD-4 on a rack, to TD-4 on stands to using an SPD-30 with extra pads and pedals - took a few years though...

              savagealexis Sounds very similar. I feel I need to make up a bit for the missed 20 years, hence the GAS. But with every new piece that falls into place, I feel the kit is closer to how I imagined it. I'm now very close to that point. Just a few minor improvements remaining, none of which need to be done soon.

                Minor change visually but a significant one for playability. A proper hi-hat stand, 2-legged, to reduce the clutter of stand feet. Feels good to see the hi-hat moving when tracking time. Just feels like real drums. Coupled with VST sounds, this now really feels like an acoustic set. Dream come true.

                There are also a few additional tom and cymbal arms to make everything stay in place but reduce the number of stands required. Some extra are there to support a few additional splash cymbals or percussion elements (still would like to have that woodblock sound, for example).

                  Loved the story of the progression of your kit. Nice setup and nice view out the window. If you have a prescription for GAS, you may want to discuss a change with your physician.
