  • Hello from a new vdrums forum member!

    I'm a long-time and former "acoustics only" drummer now getting back into the drumming scene, and much to my surprise, vdrums are the reason for my return; townhouse living will really put a damper on a drummer's love....

    I've been reading lots of posts in search of answers to the many questions I've had about vdrums and just wanted to say hello and share with everyone that I've finally ordered my first vkit - a new set of TD-9S from ebay, brand new in sealed boxes for $1495 US. Weeeee!

    Being a rock guy at heart, I'll be hooking it up to my DW7002PT for some double kick loving. I will also be upgrading to a KD-120. I've read lots of opinions, but when I actually got to try one with a 7002PT in Guitar Center, I fell in love with it (so much better than the KD-8 - IMHO). The KD-120 seemed to be tensioned just a little on the low side and it felt so damned good (to me). Never played sixtuplets (3 on the top and 3 on the bottom) so fast in all my life!

    Anyway, I'll also be adding a couple of other upgrades down (PDX-8 will have to go in favor of a PD-125) the road and will frequent the classified here.

    Thanks to everyone's contributions and answering my questions without even having known it.

    Hi Koneill

    As I'm new here myself having just got a kit (weeee! ), I know how you feel, I've been reading a lÚt on this forum for a long time before getting a vdrum

          Thanks all...

          I should be getting my kit Saturday. Can't wait! Any good websites out there that list tricks and tips for the TD-9S?

          I was in Guitar Center playing the one there today (sanity checking my purchase ), and I was a little concerned with the sensitivity of the pads until I started messing with settings such as sensitivity, threshold, etc. Luckily I was able to dial in some pretty satisfactory results.

          I'm sure the vdrums will require an adjustment (from acoustic drums), but I can't wait to start playing again!

              Thanks, TNT! That's a great thread. I'll continue poking around the forums for additional golden nuggets.
