Re: Yamaha DTX500X...???
The yamaha is great but it really matters what pads you're buying with them. The low end ones they make are not good at all but their dtx pads are my favorite. I like them better than anything that roland makes. Of course, that's subjective. The roland ones are too bouncy for me. I bought a yamaha and haven't regretted it at all. My friend has a roland and I don't care for it much. My local guitar center has multiple demo models set up that you can play, maybe you could go to a local music shop and try them both out and see what you like?
