  • Hello! (drumdevil9 intro)

    Hello all! My name is Eric and I've been playing drums for about 25 years. I've had a V-drum TD-3 Kit for about 2 years. I just bought a used TD-6V module to upgrade. I know I'm behind the times but it's all about budget, right?

    I enjoy recording my own music and collaborating with friends on their musical projects.

    Anyway, nice to be here. I'm enjoying the forum a lot.

    Thanks for reading!

    welcome to the group.

    It's how you play not what you play on that counts. Budget IS important but it isn't the only factor. These v-drums aren't the cheapest of toys. Beware of the compulsion to upgrade. I started with a TD-3 and upgraded a ways up the line. The TD-3 is a very good little module/kit. There are quite a few members playing discontinued modules that still serve them well, so you aren't really behind the times.

    I haven't played along with anyone in a long time, that was in my guitar playing days.

    TD-12/Gibraltar rack/Pintech Concertcast drums 12" snare, 1 12" tom, 2 10" toms, 8" mesh kick, Visulite cymbals, 14" dual zone crash, 13" hi-hat, 18" 3 zone ride and 2 Dingbats, Roland PM-10, iPod, Zildjian anti-vibe sticks, Roc-N-Soc throne with backrest, Yamaha snare stand, Tama Iron Cobra pedal and HH75W hi-hat stand, Sennheiser HDR 110 wireless headphones.

      Welcome Eric. Never worry about the budget. It's the playing that counts.

        Hello Eric and welcome to the forum!

        The td-3 is a perfectly good kit, you will have fun with it...and gradually your budget will improve as you realise you can go without food and shelter in order to feed your drumming habit!

        best wishes...
        TD9+6v with Diamond Electronic pads, and cowbell.

          I just noticed that I made a mistake in my original post. I meant to say that I had just bought a TD-6V to upgrade. (post edited)

          The reason I wanted a "better" module is that too many of the TD-3 snare sounds, while great sounding, have the velocity switching rim sound. I feel that I can't play naturally without getting a rimclick out of nowhere. With the 6V I have a boatload of non-velocity switching snares to choose from. And it has lots of other nifty features as well. I got it for a very reasonable price and I am very happy with it.

          Thank you all for the warm welcome!
