Default My Roland HD1

This is my new Roland HD1. Some consider it a beginners kit, but it is also a budget kit for those of us older experienced drummers getting back into the swing of things.

Here are the pics!



















just kidding...




here it is.... :D

I am very happy with the kit. Going price is 799.99 or 999.99 if you get the addons. I wouldnt get the monitor Roland makes with it...there are better ones for a little more moolah. I am doing a rent to own on it from a local music store.

hi mate i can't listen to your recoding because you put it on rapidshare which is terrible because to download unless you pay you have to enter a security code which is supposed to be only the letters attached to a cat. Which is ridiculous, i bet it's actually impossible and they're only pretending you can download stuff for free so then people will buy subscriptions thinking anyone can download their stuff. Well sorry mate but it's not true. Only people with RS subscriptions can. Just thought you might want to know in case you have stuff on the site that you really want people to hear.

I've messed around with one in a local drum shop, and found them very fun to play. I wasent really paying attention to if it caught all the roll notes ect, but found the sound pretty darn good. Not to mention its on the smaller side so it can fit into corners. One of my favorite settings on it was the one with all the human sounds on it, kindof like beatboxing. There a blast to play and I could spend atleast an hour a night playing them (if I had the money). Have fun!

Well I am renting to own, this kit. Whenever I get the dough I will get an acoustic kit and use these as samplers. (For lack of a better word).

Well there is the rub in this thing. I have read many posts from around the web with drummers that dont like the feel of them.

I am convinced that the the seat height is more crucial to this kit than to other e-kits or acoustics due to the nature of the kit and the pedals themselves.

With acoustics, it's been my experience that you can keep a throne at just about any position and get a good feel off the bass and hat pedals. But I dont have a throne yet. (As I said, I am just starting back). I started with a kitchen chair and the pedals were hard to work. I have a computer chair that adjusts, and now that the height is correct, the pedals are very easy and comfortable. Very natural feeling. I dont play flat footed though. lol
