  • Greetings from Alaska

    New drummer here just saying 'hi'. I've already gleaned a good bit of information just lurking on the forums, so I thought I should sign up and contribute.

    I recently decided to get into drumming and, thanks to my wife wanting to retain her sanity, I decided to go with a TD-3 after doing some research. So far things are looking good, but I'm only a couple of months into this journey. Every time I read through the forums I pick up something that pushes me to learn a little more, so you guys are inspiring me just by sharing your experience.

    Welcome to the forum proper then. Glad you've found it helpful and inspiring, long may it continue. Good luck learning, a steep learning curve for sure, but it'll all come together in the end.

        Welcome J,

        I started with a TD-3 and continued to be nice to my wife and here a couple years later have made a significant upgrade.

        The TD-3 worked well for me and I have fond memories of it...

        you can upgrade things a bit, I added a Pintech DIngbat for another trigger, then mesh pads. That made quite a nice little kit. After that it didn't make too much sense to upgrade things much more.

        welcome, you'll love the v-drums.
