  • Hello...first post here! TD-3 Owner

    New owner of a TD-3. Enjoying the peace of practicing in the basement without the family freaking out.My TD-3 was a great deal at $850. What level and sensitivity do you guys set your drums at? I'm a big fan of the #15 setting so far.Rocking away to the Ramones at wee hours!

      Congrats on your new kit and welcome to the forum. I understand the whole freak out thing but I also include the neighbors in my freak out mode. I play so bad I kinda feel obligated to give them a little something should I ever make it big.

          Hello. I just went through this. I have a TD 12 - but the process is the same (I think). The sensitivity setting is really a function of your playing dynamics. Mine do vary , but after experimenting a bit, I believe I have them set between 8 and 12, depending on the pad/cymbal. If you rock out, and your amps go to 11, crank 'em up! Make sure they are set to meet your dymic range requirements, and have fun.

            Welcome ekim,

            I've had my TD-3 just over a year now. I usually just stick with kit#1. I'm not all that fond of the other ones. I haven't messed with the settings all that much.

            One thing you might want to consider is adding a Pintech Dingbat. I recently added one to my TD-3 kit. I ordered it from Hope Drums, dealt with Brian, nice guy, very helpful. You can assign it any sound the module has. I wanted to add a cowbell, but you can add what ever else you want or need. It's nice to have another sound.

            Enjoy your v-drums! This is a great place to learn more about them.
