Standard mesh heads on Roland TD series.


Well-known member
I noticed double mesh heads factoy mounted on the Roland TD-1DMK are unbeliavebly expensive. The 6" heads are about $55 and the 8" for the snare about $34...

Is it possible to mount standard mesh heads (perhaps single layer, starting at about $10...)? Does it affect the response of the set? Such prices simply seem to be a nonsense...

you’ll most likely never wear through a double ply mesh head during your ownership of the kit. I had mine for 3 years and didn’t even scratch the surface and i’m a pretty heavy hitter
