  • New drummer on the forum :P

    Hello!

    Well I'm new to this forum and I'm here to get some suggestions on buying a decent vdrum
    I've playing drums at home (my neighbors love me ) for a year but since I've moved to a flat that's not an option, so I'll have to buy a vdrum for practice.

    I'll try to learn as much as I can while I'm here

    Welcome to the forum...and there is a lot of advice here, as we all have our own favourites!

    Good luck and hope you find one you love as much as I love mine! (first td6. then td-9)...

      Istarion,

      Welcome! You'll learn a LOT here. I certainly have.

      V-drums are not silent, the biggest complaint is low frequency vibrations going through the floor disturbing others. There are posts here on ways to deal with that. You can also hear the sticks hit the pads or cymbals too. For example, when my son tried playing my TD-3 kit, using headphones late at night, we could hear him. The drum kit is just below our bedroom.

      The other big new member question is "What kit do I get?" . It all depends on what you want to do, how far you think you'll go with it, and the real factor, how much money do you have/want to spend? Conventional wisdom is get the best gear you can get right away, upgrading usually costs more in the long run.

      Case in point, I bought a TD-3KW about a year and a half ago. I've upgraded to a TD-12 module, Gibraltar rack and Pintech mesh heads and cymbals. Quite a difference in the kits, size, cost, etc. I haven't even begun to figure out the TD-12. These v-drums are addicting and things can really add up.

      Good luck! You'll be much more informed than I was when you decide to make a purchase. I found this site a bit after I bought my kit. There are a lot of members who really know their stuff and can help you out a lot.

      Again, welcome !!

        The only decent V-Drum is the TD-20. Or maybe two TD-20s.

          Its all down to what you can afford mate.

          If you got the feel you can make a upturned bucket sing.

            ...I second that. Just look at a Johnny Rabb video: it doesn't matter what kit he uses, he makes every one sounds great.
