Default roland td-9kx2 vs yamaha dtx 560k

Recently I went to a shop with yamaha e-drums.He played the drumkit dtx 560k and 700 with silicone pads
technology.It was amazing...
i have a kit roland td-9 kx2 and I want to jump for oxe dtx 560k
following comparison in my opinion:

hihat :
roland has a vh 11 which is better than the Yamaha in feel

pads :
yamaha has pads with less bounce and feel similar to acoustic kit
but the roland has larger pads

cymbals:
The Yamaha has two cymbals from 13 iches with better feel and choke from the rolands cy12 & 13 for me.

kick drum:
kd-9 it-s super ,quieter and better feel from yamaha kick pad

rack:
roland rack mds-9 its most adjustable from the yamaha

the end

module:
roland td-9 v2.0 its better sounds from the dtx500 and usb port,would rather compare it with yamaha dtx 700

please write my Your choices and preferences for these e-kit too
...

thanx

If you're wanting advice on switching from your roland td-9..I'd say go for the DTX750..it will be an upgrade from your current e-kit…I wouldn't consider the DTX500 series to be an upgrade...

Roland and Yamaha both have their strong points. Both are very good. Personally I prefer the Yamaha overall, but you need the DTX700 module, not the DTX500 module.

If you sell frequently, it may be easier to sell the Roland, but it sounds like you prefer Yamaha sounds so you should probably take the Yamaha.

What are you after?

Better pads?

Better cymbals?

Better sounds?

Between the major ekit builders you are going to get varying degrees and even then it is very subjective to your personal taste and experience. For example, some folks love Roland mesh ... some folks love Yamaha silicone.

Sometimes it is getting the most bang for your buck too. If all you use your ekit for is "practicing" ... in my mind ... your ekit would have to be really bad to invest in a new one. So, I question why you want a new ekit? Have you maxed out your Roland pad count perhaps?

I am sure in its day your TD-9 was "the bomb". I say keep it ... keep your money ... and spend it on drum software, or a new iPad ;) If you really want to get rid of your money ... I can PM you my mailing address :)

ok the dtx 560 it;s the lower from my kit ,maybe go for the dtx 700 for the sounds and silicone pads
my roland td-9 it's super but has more bouncy from a one acoustic set and I say maybe silicone pads have less bounce...

thanx for reply and Sorry for my bad English

Okay ... so you want new pads.

If it were me, I would then decide what I want to do with the module.

The DTX500 supports the silicone pads.

The DTX700 module has a few more pad inputs, a lot more voice support per pad, MIDI in, and lot more other "stuff" ... but for $500 more (just the module) than the DTX500.

So you kind of need to ask yourself is the DTX700 "worth it".

Don't take me wrong, I am not trying to turn you away from a DTX700. As you can see from my signature ... I have a DTX700 ... LOVE IT. Super configurable ... the multiple voice support per pad is awesome! So I can definitely recommend it.

All I am saying is that if all you need are the pads ... a DTX500 could get you by.
