  • Howdy all!

    Greetings from Colorado!

    Just wanted to introduce myself to the forum. I recently purchased a Roland TD-9SX. After many long years of yearning and drooling over kit after kit, I finally went for it and am very happy with my purchase. The mesh heads rock!

    I consider myself an advanced beginner. I played a bunch in high school (way too many years ago) so getting back in the groove has been slow but steady. Thank God for AC/DC, playing along with them makes a newbie like me feel like a veteran (not a diss on AC/DC [one of my favorite bands], just fairly simple drum beats).

    I've been lurking around this site for a few weeks, and can see that there are quite a few of you ready and willing to provide me with the sage advice I'm looking for. I look forward to getting to know you all.

      Hi and welcome by another TD-9K(S)X player!

      Hmmm...that gets me thinking: would it be interesting to start a thread or poll which kit (or combi) you play and perhaps why and why you like (or hate) it? Or has that been done already (and died out)?

        Nice to hear from you Squid.

        Have you got 8 arms.

        This drumming lark will be a breeze for you if you have. 4 sticks, 4 pedals. Think of the computations. Awesome.

            there have been polls asking for instance to choose between a 9 and a 12, and plenty of what kit should i get? threads were the upperclass (12/20 owners) cast dispersions on us pond lifers who have lesser modules....and the advantages and disadvantages are thrashed thoroughly....

            course, if we had the dosh, we would ALL have double td-20 setups!

                Another welcome from a brother Colorado-an. Or is that Colorado-ite? On the other side of the mountain (Grand Junction) but with this forum almost like right next door.

                Shalom

                      I know what you mean. You can go throwing money at bigger and better kits till the baliff comes round, but it wont make you a better drummer. On the contrary, youll spend more and more time tweaking and less and less time playing.

                      It dont matter what you play as long as the sound you get satisfies your ears.

                      A good drummer will make an HD1 sing.

                      Me, well I got a TD6KV with a PD125 snare, Cobra double power gluide, and an extra crash cymbal, and `Im happy as a pig in sh-t'.

                      This gives me all I need.
