    Howdy and welcome back! Are you playing for fun or for money? If it's for fun, I'd save the money and get a used TD20. Do you build your own pads or use only brand names? If you don't DIY, I think the new pads on the 30 are worth it if you have the cash. I don't see many 30's for sale used yet, so unless you are willing to pay full price, it might be tough to find a 30.
    TD50 Digital Pack, TD30 and TD9 Modules, custom made pads, Gen16 crashes, and hats plus a few other things that I'm not sure what to do with or why they're still in my kit. Bands: Espada http://www.musicaespada.com/ and JamCo https://www.facebook.com/JamcoEntertainment, https://www.jamcoband.com/

        TD20 and TD30 pads are the same...just additional triggers inside the TD30 pads to accomodate newer features in the TD30 module. You should be able to score a great used TDW20 on the cheaper side. If you've got the $$ then just get the TD30...you'l love it.
