Well I can tell you the TD3 is not Awesome but it does work. There are limited sounds compared to the higher roland stuff but way more then 10.Glad to see someone in the same position as me...i guess, means we should get double the help
Yeah the roland v lite is nice, just the pedal, i cant use that at all, and the toms are so small its annoying.
I cant find the td3 used anywhere locally, but it does look awesome. Do people not get any other brand of kit? or is roland the way to go, cause noone has recommended me anything yamaha or alesis so far :S
Are pianists cheating when they play organ? They're different instruments.
...OK slightly off topic...
BTW...his argument is that e-drums allow drummers to tune the mesh head tightly and therefore have faster rebound without compromising for sound.
I will watch this space with interest. My issue as well. Another important factor for me is space; I don't want a whole rack of stuff.
I keep trying out the Roland V-Drums Lite in shops but it never grows on me. Trouble is, the module only has a limited range of kit sounds (10) with only two normal acoustic kit settings, and neither are quite what I want.
Hi Polly, One of the bands I play in has a set of Roland TD12s. I think they are great for rehersal and playing in small clubs. I have had them home to dial in sounds. The other good thing about them is they are so quiet. I was screwing around playing to some of the loops that were in the brain, my wife comes down stairs and says, Do you know its 2:00am. Time flies when you are having fun. But in real life I can't stand playing them, They just are not real drums, You cannot be as dynamic as you can with real drums and the rubber hi hat and cymbals are a joke. They hurt my hands and wrist for some reason. Brass bounces better.
I think one or two pads and a decent brain would make a great addition to a drum kit.

My wife got me a set of Vic Firth drum mutes for my B-day. I don't know if its a present for me or for her lol.Thanks for the info, Doggie. It Thing is, it costs over $6k in Oz. I won't be spending much more than that on my next car!
I'll probably just end up getting a kick drum practice pad to augment my current "setup" - a quiet pad on a djembe with two books on top to raise it up higher than the louder pad on my computer chair ... and hustle for the band to gig more often
