So how do you find a snare like that in comparison to an acoustic one? Same response levels? Can you accent/rim shot properly? I've wanted to get one for awhile but was confused as to which price points/brands would give me something authentic that was worthwhile to practice on.

Very sweet! And, you are going to love using this for practice ... ekits are just amazing for practice. Wait to until you figure out the groove check and metronome possibilities. Get back after a few months and let me know if you agree. Joey

I would kill for that for when I do my woodshedding. Rolands are definitely the best e-drums.
Nice camera too, very clear pictures.

I was wondering about price too. I was thinking about doing the same thing and piecing together something as well.

I bought everything individual. For the Roland stuff (TD12, VH11, PD125 and KD120) I payed around € 2200. If you're looking for a complete kit you're better of buying the complete TD12K or TD20K kit but I wasn't looking to spend € 1200 more for a rack (for which I don't have the space), some toms and cymbals. At the moment I like playing small kits and for me this is perfect for practice and some recording at home. If I would want to have toms I'd use some old rubber pads or buy some new (which are only € 70) and place them on normal stands. In that case I would have the snare and kick pad of the TD20K and hihat and module of the TD12K and it would still be cheaper compared to the complete TD12K.

I went to a store first to compare the different pads (I only got to compare Roland pads) mostly because I wanted to know what's the difference between this hihat and the more expensive one of the TD20K and this kick pad and the cheaper one of the TD12K. In my opinion there wasn't really any difference between the hihats but I liked this kick pad a lot more than the other one. The pad of the TD12K is smaller and made more noise and also this one stands a bit more stable. It also feels better but I guess if you tune the TD12K pad not so tight it would also feel better. The snare pad is more bouncy than a real snare I guess because of the mesh head. If I would put on a normal head it would probably feel exactly the same but also make some more noise. Accenting and rim shots work very well though if you listen more carefully you do notice it uses only a few different samples but it's enough to play with.

I'm very pleased with the amount of noise the mesh heads make (or maybe I should say don't make). With headphones on I've been playing till 10.30pm and none of my neighbours even noticed. Also it's great that you can turn the volume down so it's better for your ears and you don't have to turn the volume of the metronome or the music you're playing with all the way up to hear it.

If "€" means euro, € 2200 = 3006$ USD,

zZounds prices....
VH11 = hihat = 395$
TD12 = brain = 1395$
PD125 = snare = 345$
KD120 = bass = 425$

The conversion I made came up with 2795,10 USD. But prices here are a lot higher. If you take the zZounds prices and only add taxes you're almost at the same price I payed, and then still you'll have to add some transport costs. I did however get a little discount by taking a price list of a german online store (where everything is a bit cheaper) to my local store. Usually if you show them prices that are lower than theirs they look if they can lower their prices to be cheaper but this time they couldn't do that but I got everything for the german prices so that saved me some money.

Nice set-up, but I don't know why you say you couldn't fit a rack in there. I have a complete TD-20+ on a transplanted rack in the same size space. A complete TD-12 is only $3200 from most of the US chain stores.

I've always liked this idea. The execution is very neat - small e-kits are great for home practice and project studios. Great work.

When I bought the first parts for this kit there was more stuff in that room so a rack would have probably blocked the doorway (I only had the kick, snare and hi-hat at that time). I have some more space now but I don't have the need for a rack and also these stands can be easily exchanged with any other kit.

The TD-12 is 3200 here so that would be around $ 4380. I've spend about the same amount for the complete kit (including all hardware) by getting discounts from retailers, buying the 8" pad second handed and ordering parts in Germany.

Or you could just wait for the TD-20KX. Totally new stuff -- better sounds. But I don't know how pricey they are??
