  • new to thread, and a question?

    Hi guys, i played rockband and loved the game so i decided to buy myself some e-drums. I bought pads for the yamaha dtxpress iv special by accident, thinking it was the whole kit. Made a mistake. So now im trying to piece together a set with these pads.

    so im ordering the rack for the pads but my question is do i need the dtxpress iv special module for the pads or could i use another yamaha module, or even the roland module?

    If so which module would you recommend? keep in mind i have a limited budget of about 700.00 maximum, but would like to keep it to 500.00 if i could. thanks guys.

      Im from Canada, so i guess US money or cdn money. same basically. But my main question if someone has the knowledge, can my yamaha dtxpress pads work with roland module? i have searched all over the internet. thanks in advance.

        Yamaha's single and dual-zone pads will work with a Roland module. Yamaha's three-zone pads will only work fully with the proper Yamaha module.

        You may want to see if someone at

          And the foot pedals for the high hat aren't compatible without an adapter so be careful about that too.

            ok thanks guys, So i got the pads and now the rack for the dtxpress iv special, however the module here in Canada is 750.00 plus 12% tax, compared to 450.00 in the US but they wont ship to canada. But the good news is a store here sells the dtxpress iii module for $200.00 new, as i guess it is the last one they have and its discontinued, so they are selling it.

            Is this the good deal? or should i just go for the iv module?
