Re: Roland vs Yamaha vs Alesis?
Well, yes, Roland for sure. i bought an Alesis dm8 usb kit which, to put a not too fine spin on it, fell apart when I hit it at some points during the first month of playing, first one pad then another. The Roland TD-11 beats it soundly (no pun intended), especially when you download something like the VEX kits.
