Default Re: Just got a Roland TD-11K-S. What do I need to know?

Right now I've got the brain and tom and bass pads integrated with my DW Collectors kit and am playing around with them as auxiliary sounds.

Having never played e-drums before, the hardest thing for me to get used to is not hearing the pads' sounds from their source but only from the speaker I'm using, even though it's only a few feet away. It makes for an eerie sense of drumming detachment.

But - a new drum feeling? After over 50 years of playing? Aren't many things better than that!
