Re: Used Roland TD9 vs New Roland TD11KS
I got my TD9kx (all mesh pads) around 2 years ago used for $1,000 at my local store and I love it.
If you can get your hands on a mesh kit, I'd definitely recommend it....try craigslist, ebay, etc...
For the upgrade to v2 you don't need to send your module anywhere or pay anything....you can find it on the internet, save it to a USB and then install it in the module. I upgraded mine around one year ago so I don't remember exactly where I found it but it's definitely out there. It has better sounds IMHO.
