Roland TD 4KP compact size issues...
 
Hey, so I am roughly 6 feet tall, and I am wondering if the Roland TD 4KP is going to be too small for me to comfortably fit... does anyone have any experience with the set or similar ones??????? Even beyond size, does anyone have experience with this set?

Dimensions of kit (Width (W) 39-3/8 inches Depth (D) 47-1/4 inches Height (H) 49-1/4 inches)

FWIW I used to gig with a Roland TD-6 kit with no problems whatsoever (and I'm 6' 5").
However the TD-6 rack (craptastic as it may have been) allowed for much greater flexibility with regards to pad placement.
I'd have concerns with the TD-4KP (based on the images I've seen) because you don't seem to have that many points of articulation (love the way it all folds up neatly though)!

You could always put the legs on top of some sort of platform doohickey if you need more height (leave the pedals on the ground though, obviously).

I would assume that Roland has designed the kit to be comfortable within normal height ranges, and six feet isn't exactly abnormally tall (I'm about 6"2' myself). Of course, it also depends greatly on how high you sit on your drum throne.
