  • E.Drummer from Mexico [DIY apprentice]

    Hello, I'm Hugo from Yucatán, México, looong time lurker on this awesome forum but never had posted in The Foyer, mostly because I wasn't a VDrums user but a Yamaha DTXpress IV one.

    A couple weeks ago, decided to sell the Yammie to get some cash we needed at home. Fortunately, I was able to keep the cymbals and started a DIY four piece kit based on a humble TD-3 module triggered by mesh pads. I may start a topic in the DIY section but want to share the finished kit here.

    I'm aware that the TD-3 is old and limited, but has been pretty functional for home practice, extremely easy to configure a good response with my DIY triggers, and actually like enough sounds to have a couple sets. The HH controller is a FSR.

        Thanks a lot! I'm quite happy with it. Soon I'll post some pics in the DIY section.

          Hi mate. Dont do your drums down, the earlier brains where much more straight forward and easier to play with. Ive been playing a TD6V since 2006 and it does all I need.

          Apart from the Kick KD8, Ive changed all the pads to mesh head though.

            For sure, I'm having a blast with it. Not better nor worse than DTXpress VI, just different.
