    replied to Buying dilemma - Can you help?
    If you want to save money yet still get a great sounding, modern kit, I agree with those who say the ATV kit (aD5 module and aDrums kit) is an attractive option. I've not played the kit yet myself, but I've been researching it for quite some time. Currently, I cannot think of another single vendor solution...

  • I'll preface my comments with a personal bias. As someone who has played drums for many years, I'd rather give up drums and switch to a different instrument than deal with the expressive limitations of low end electronic drum kits. There is a minimum level of expressiveness I want from an instrument...

    Argh! Not a poke at ATV, but more darned patents? Really? Patents stalled innovation in the e-drum world for more than two decades. The last thing the e-drum world needs is more patents that prevent the sharing and evolution of technology....

  • Three thoughts.

    Going the Yamaha route, you need to buy two stands: SS-662 and SS-665. That's because the SS-662 has the 12 inch basket, but the SS-665 has the significantly taller base. Thus, as noted, I dropped the basket and down-rod of the SS-662 into SS-665. Voila. Instant concert...

    replied to PDX100 vs PD120 ?
    Unless we're having a political economic discussion (which we are not), this is totally irrelevant. The build quality and triggering of both pads is excellent. It's just that the PD-120 is a higher end pad. In it's day, the PD-120 was a flagship pad built without low cost in mind. Conversely, the PDX-100...

    replied to PDX100 vs PD120 ?
    Actually, because the PD-120 is an older pad, you can find it for less than the PDX-100. The only reason to go with the PDX-100 is if you want the smaller 10 inch playing surface. The PD-120 offers a larger 12 inch playing surface, more drum like build, better build quality, equivalent triggering, and...

  • subsash and Alan,



    I had this exact problem with my kit. I use Roland mesh pads for snare drum (PD-128), rack tom (PD-108), and floor tom (PD-128), and all three are mounted in snare stands (no rack). Regular fourteen inch snare drum stands do not work well, because once you...

    replied to PDX100 vs PD120 ?
    Myself, there is no question, I'd choose the PD-120 due to its larger playing surface, wood shell, and proper metal drum lugs. The difference between the edge mounted rim trigger of the PD-120 versus the center mounted rim trigger of the PDX-100 is marginal. The head trigger is center mounted for...

  • JmanWord,



    That's a lot of money to have tied up and a lot of modules to keep around! I just wondered if there were any specific reasons you decided to let the TD-50 go. Thanks for explaining. Makes perfect sense....

  • Roland will sell you the parts, but typically what you consider a single part (such as a tom bracket) Roland considers as many parts. So, a required plate inside the bracket, or a required washer, or other required parts are all considered separate parts. It's frustrating because sometimes Roland themselves...

    Hopefully this is okay to ask, why are you selling your TD-50? If this is a private matter, just ignore my question, please. :-)...

    replied to New (4th) cymbal position
    Raven762,

    I've been meaning to answer your questions for a while now. Others have discussed what sounds to put on another cymbal, but there is also the functional aspect and this very much affects where you position the cymbal. I tend to look at cymbals in two ways: (1) a ride surface for...

    zzeezzy,

    Given that you're used to a high quality Gretsch acoustic kit, I would not consider non-flagship Roland modules, such as TD-11, TD-15, and TD-25. You'll find the dynamic and textural response of these modules limiting and none of these modules provide individual inputs, individual...

  • Calabash17,



    I don't bury the beater, but this sounds like a great idea for making the bass drum pad feel better! And, I bet it makes the bass drum pad a bit quieter, too. I'm going to give this a try. Thanks for sharing this!...

    replied to New ATV drumkit: aDrum
    Though I've not yet seen the aDrums in person, they ooze acoustic drum appeal, which is exactly what I've been looking for. As I noted previously, I'd prefer snare and tom sizes that are closer to acoustic drums (such as 14 inch snare drum, 10 and 12 inch toms, and 14 and 16 inch floor toms). Still,...

    Averagebear6,

    I replied to your PM. You got the King KORG for $764? (I'm assuming that's U.S. dollars.) Wow! For Moog and classic analog sounds, I don't think you can do any better, especially at that price. I'm glad you found something that works for you and thank you for your kind words....

  • basschick,

    Another suggestion to help you. You may know this already, but in case you don't... one technical approach to avoid vibration going into your hands and body is "pinch, release, and pinch". It works like this. You hold the sticks with a relaxed, loose grip. There...
