Default Changing / upgrading the Brain

As Beaker very kindly helped me yesterday with sorting my head out about what i need for an electronic kit .. one i can build on...
If i was to get either a TD 9 / 12 / 20... even if i got the 9 could i upgrade by changing the module to a newer version?

ive seen a 9 and a 20 so im wanting to know..

Check out this wiki for the input capabilities of all Roland modules: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roland_V-Drums

Just be aware of the TD9's 8-input trigger harness connector, which may not adapt to another module.

Generally, triggers are all the same. The just send an impulse from a simple piezo and the module decides what to do with it.

Besides price difference the TD20 has more expressiveness when it comes to playability on both the drum pads and cymbals. If you can afford the TD20 or even the TD12 (If you don't need the extra outputs) then I would get the TD20 for sure. The TD-9 also uses the wiring harness which could be difficult to replace in the future, but if its all your budget allows then get the TD-9.
