Default Yamaha DTXpress IV Special vs. Roland TD-6KW


I'm wondering if anyone knowledgeable in the subject of E-drums can give me a little advice about which one to pick? Both are in perfect condition, there is nothing to choose between them in that regard. I've played with a Roland TD-3KW before, but have never tried out Yamaha.

I'm interested in using this mainly as a practice tool, and also possibly for a few drum & bass / dub step projects. Also interested in using it myself with Pro Tools, so anyone who can advise me in this regard would be a godsend. (I'm learning Pro Tools currently, but am not much of a hardware wizard!)

Also a big question
  • Can i expect to be able to upgrade/expand the kit as i feel necessary?
Can other E-drum manufactures items integrate into these kits? hart etc.

Thanks alot!

I've had several Roland kits, no real experience with the Yammies other than playing around at the store. For one thing, the TD-6 kits have been discontinued. Some places still have left overs but the TD-9 is the newer upgraded version. A little more money, but well worth it in my opinion. The Rolands have mesh pads whereas the Yammies are gum rubber. Some don't care, most would prefer mesh. Hart products are all compatible and inter-changeable with all of the Roland kits. All of the Roland pads, modules and stands are also inter-changeable and upgradeable. Hope this helps.
