Default Electronic Pads To Compliment Acoustic Kit for Live Gigs

Hey Guys

I've been thinking about getting some electric pads to help expand my bands sound, but have absolutely no idea no clue about any products in the market. I already own a pretty top notch acoustic kit, and was thinking maybe an electric bass, snare, hi hat and maybe 2 more pads for effects would be a nice addition to add some contrast and originality to our music.
I would be looking not for drum kits that play like standard acoustic ones, but which have lots of options for editing and creating sounds, with a bit of a more dance-y feel. Any opinions or suggestions would be much appreciated. Sorry for being such a noob!

Oh and this is a band from my area who's drummer does something similar... just if that's a bit of a pointer.

Look into a Roland SPD-S. Not only does in have 180+ on board sounds to play with ... it's a sampler, so you can put basically "whatever" you want into it.

Roland SPD-20 has heaps of ethnic instruments and 8 pads.

SPD-30 has 8 pads and can create loops.....

I have both and they're both good.


The new Yamaha padset looks very good - 12 pads and some good sounds and sampling too (I think).

yamaha dtxmulti 12 is bad arse!!!! (i love mine)
12 pads
5 more inputs (for triggering your toms /kick/etc)
1400 sounds
samples (if you need it to) << this means you can put sounds into it
the best part is you can do it all USB

the spd 30 doesnt sample
and the spds (you have to use a 512 flash card - good luck finding one of those anymore)

i love the m12!!!

Less than 1 minute search on eBay ... type in 512 flashcard ... netted 41 results.

and when it breaks at a show will ebay be there to help you
its old technology, and outdated
not to mention the spds only has 2 trigger inputs and the pads are lackluster at best

My kit is a combonation of a Roland TD-12 electonic with a Pearl Studion Series mixed in. I love the combonation. Its a great idea for you to mix them, especially if your going for more of a dance style. As for what to get, it depends on your price range. You could go with a lower end Roldan kit, they sound great and have alot of variations of sound. If you want to go higher end, the Roland TD-20 is an awesome set. I played it in my local Sam Ash and loved it. That would deffinetly have enough sounds to satisfy your hunger for a techno feel, it has 100 pre-set kits! Look at my profile picture, it is my combonation kit, it might give you some ideas.
