Default roland v drums questions

i have been thinking about getting a v drum set. the TD12-K is the one that im thinking about getting the most because it is more affordable. so im wondering if the snare drum can be taken off the attachment that its hooked to and be mounted on a normal snare stand? and does the rack system get in the way in any way when it comes to using a double pedal?
so, for any of you that own these set please let me know what you think of them.

you'd need a snare stand that will close up pretty tight to grasp the 10" snare pad. I've found models that will clamp tight on a 9" PD9, but wouldn't promise that all stands can do that.

I've used several Roland racks with kits of various configurations, and have never had any trouble squeezing a double-pedal in.

I think the TD12 model is a really good deal, you'll dig it.
I kinda wish I'd bought that instead of a TD20...

I think if you can afford it it will be really worth the money.

As for the pedal - you shouldnt have any problems fitting it in, infact, maybe it is easier to fit stuff on an E-Kit, than on normal kits.

well i just went and played on the TD12-k and i did not like the way the rack is near the floor tom pad. the post coming up from the floor that connects to the rack is right in the way of playing. meaning that when i played on the floor tom pad i had to try to get my hand in a different position then i normally would when playing a real floor tom to keep from hitting my hand on the post that comes up from the ground that holds that side of the rack up. if i could find a way around that problem i would like to get this kit.

I have never heard of that problem, and I've never had it when I've sat down at them. My guess is the shop where you tried it out did not have it set up right.

They are great kits though, they sound very realistic/acoustic (on the kits that should)

I bet they didn't have it setup good. I just bought the 6xt or what have you and I ended up setting it up different than they show it being setup. The TD12 rack is nicer yet, you'll be fine. You'll luv it.

Get the TD-12 and get some Hart Dynamics drums. Way more bang for your buck but with great Roland sounds. I have a Hart Gigapro with the TD-12 and it's fantastic. Also, lots of E drummers prefer Gibralter or Hart racks for their drums. The Roland clamps have a reputation for breaking pretty easily.

If you're a handy guy you might want to look into a DIY. It's a lot cheaper and you can make your drums look like they are acoustic. Lots of info on this at www.vdrums.com
