View Full Version : Electronic Drum questions

I might be getting an electronic drum set (a Roland V-Drum TD-4K) because of space issues/noise issues, and I have a few questions about how it works..
Could you connect headphones to the brain, and then put music through them too? Or do you need an amp, because that would just defeat the purpose of no noise..
And do you need to buy some extra stuff, like mixers or something? Because I'm on a pretty tight budget..

Yes you could just plug in a pair of headphones and youre good to go. You dont any mixers or anything like that. The td 4k has an aux input so you could plug in your ipod and play along with your music. Hope this helped

Thanks, glad i would be able to hear both at once.

Yup. Most Roland kits have an 1/8" stereo input.
The TD-4 is no exception.

yes, it will work great. Saved a lot of hassles from my neighbors. The other great thing it does, I think the TD4 has a metronome in it too, (i have a TD9), it also does this thing where it charts your hits whether the bass, snare, top or ride on a graph to let you know if you are in the pocket. I was real happy with it.

The TD4 brain doesnt have the graph to see what pads are being hit and the metronome, its a smaller unit, without the fancy display. I think it still has lights to show which pad is being hit, and likely a metronome, but I havent looked that closely at the td4.
