    Roland spd sx. No sound from pad nr. 1

    You can assign any of the pads to function as "all sounds off" check your pad 1 is not set to this?? As Bermuda said - full factory reset is an option.

    Anyone clean just one side of an old old cymbal? I did...

    Drum use for situation

    I have one set of drums,one snare,one set of cymbals and I play everything on them. Minimal differences, such as wood species or dark vs bright cymbals for example, are completely lost on the vast majority of people.

    Remo Colortone Snare Head. Opinions please.

    That was me ;)- (Nobody see's them but me and I think they look cool) They sound good - they're really just a clear (albeit coloured) two ply - but I couldn't get on with the PS 77 on snare - very boxy sounding on my particular drum (aluminium) and a very thick 'feel' to it - but then I'm used...

    Does anybody use a tilting hi-hat stand?

    I use a bog standard dw 5000 stand ( I cut the legs off to rack mount it ) and tilted it by loosening the two drum screws that allow the foot plate to fold up for transport, leaning it over to where i wanted it and doing them back up.

    Total Noob Help Decide on These 3 Kits

    The Pearl WS is by far the better option - for all the reasons already stated. Keep the sizes you like and re-sell the others as a shell pack and recoup half your outlay - well worth the time and effort of a 90 min drive.

    Need some advice

    This is where I struggle, been solely on the Roland for 6-7 months now - I know getting back to my A kit will be a trial. Brain expects my hands to do things same speed as the smaller e kit. So much so I'm thinking of breaking the bank to get one of these.......
