    Hey guys I just signed up as a new member about an hour ago.. Not only am I new to vdrum forums but im new to drum's in general. Anyways I just wanted to say hello to everyone. I hope I don't ask TO many newbie questions.. *search has been my friend so far....*

    I have always loved drums but just now am I able to really afford them and play. I have always just had some el cheapo's to bang around on, oh and of course rockband with the ion kit ..

    Now its time for me to really get started. My first step is I ebayed a td3. I figured I will bang around on my little ion kit with that brain While I research and put a nice set together. So far im thinking I will A. Piece a Hart Pro series or B. go with there studio master 6.4 kit. (I know hart on roland forum, try not to scorch me to badly) However my dads neighbor has a hart set and I really fell in love with it. My local drum shop has rolands so I was able to play them aswell. Just the hart's seem to feel better to me I guess.

    To start I have been running threw tutorials at and bought Mel Bays dvd/ book combo.

    Well im rambling.. I just wanted to say hello.

              No worries! There's a fairly decent segment of the population here that plays Hart gear. We're happy to have you joining us!

              Keep us posted on which kit you decide to get, and be sure to post photos once you've got it all together.

              Welcome aboard!

                What Vader said. This site has, fortunately, morphed into a very general edrumming site. Sure, it's heavy on Roland and Hart, some Pintech, not enough Yamaha but we strive very hard to avoid the pointless brand bigotry ("Tastes Great!", "Less Filling!", "You Suck!").

                Well, except with Behringer.

                TD-12, DTX502, SD1000, EZDrummer, Diamond Drum 12" snare, S1000 toms/cymbals/kick, PCY10/100/135/155, CY-5/14, Hart Ride, Hart Acupad 8" kick, Epedal Pro II, Concept 1 pads/cymbals, SD1000 & Roland V Sessions racks, PD-7, Kit Toy 10" splash, DMPad ride, SamplePad, PerformancePad Pro

                      I haven't had a problem with my lil ion set.. I bought it and the game for 300.. so it was a sweet deal for me. But I guess I cant complain to much only having a 300 dollar set lol.

                      Im sure if I had a "real" set like you guys the ion would be junk. Im waiting on my used td3 module to get here.

                        A working Ion kit verses' a dead TD-20 makes it junk , and my trusty Behringer mixer "with lots of effects and channels" and the B300 watt powered speakers are still working (more than the wife ever has
                        ), It will be with trepidation I turn them on now .
                        You cruel Behringer hating ppl
                        Mind you one channel is starting to give up on the mixer with about 20 hours use
                        You'll enjoy your TD-3 the sounds are very good.
                        Nothing of importance here
