  • A Rock Solid Hey!

    Hey everybody,

    Been using this forum for research when I was looking for a ROLAND kit.

    After some saving up and a decade of wanting to actually own a full good quality drum kit (not those horrible starter kits), that could be played LOUD and didn't need setting up I ended up obtaining a TD-30KV V-Pro.

    It wasn't cheap but worth every penny. I first tried it when it just came out, it caught my eye in a store and holy sh*t it blew me away how an e-kit could be this amazing!

    I'm completely self taught, normally listen to stuff in the car then try to improvise and due to the feel and tone flexibility I was able to improve my playing.

    I like any drummer that inspires me or can play an interesting pattern really but some of my favorite drummers are: Vinnie Paul, Gar Samuelson, Scott Travis and yes, Lars Ulrich!

    My TD-30KV is stock but I'm just starting to expand it, the parts are damn expensive but plan is to add a PD-108, and two CY-14C.

    BTW Rock Solid is one of my favourite settings so thought that could be my username!

    Welcome!!! How about some pics? BEFORE YOU SPEND ALL YOUR MONEY, look into other brands to make those additions and upgrades. For example, Yamaha cymbals cost half as much but look and play GREAT. There are tons of other examples, just hunt around and ask some questions!

      Thanks!

      Yeah I'll try to take some.

      Thanks for the advice, I'll have to have a look into that.

          welcome and you can't go wrong with a TD30, imo.

            TD30KV is KING! I know I haven't been playing for long time at all and I probably only use 10% of it...but I still don't regret having it!

            I just fitted a new CY-14C, the one closest to the VH-13.

            I actually had the cymbal for a few months but couldn't find a used, reasonably priced stand so just got a new one but looks great!

            I've been covering it since I got it and after almost a year it's still dust free.

            I use VF 5A NOVA's with nylon tips, really great sticks for seconds and look good too...I had Vic Firth 5A American Classic but I kinda destroyed them! he he...they were perfectly fine except they started getting splinters and I'm sure I rubbed the coating off my VH-13 a little, oops!

                I built my DYI's for about 80 bucks a drum with all new parts, from shells to hardware to triggers.. Triggers every bit as good as the Roland's, you ought to look into building or converting your own.
