    Re: Electronic kit for University

    The TP65S is one option for the snare upgrade. It looks like the basic rubber pads but has three zones. It's the cheapest upgrade option. You can also get the TP100 or TP120 pads, which are the...

    Re: Need advice. What snare to buy?

    The XP pads (or TCS pads, same thing) work with ANY of the current DTX modules -- DTX500, DTX700, and DTX900. So, as scorch whammin pointed out, you could get a DTX500 for less than $300 if you...

    Re: Need advice. What snare to buy?

    Yamaha has stated that the new TCS pads will not work properly with previous modules. In fact, the "newer" modules are basically the same as the versions they are replacing, but with the added...

    Re: Need advice. What snare to buy?

    What module are you using? If you're using anything less than the current DTX modules then the newer Yamaha snares won't work properly for you. I believe the Roland snares will give you some trouble...

    Good choice. You're going to be very happy with that TD-9.

    Re: Vexpressions from comp to set?

    All of the instructions should be right there on the Vexpressions website. If not, shoot them an email. I hear those guys are super nice and helpful.

    Re: Electronic kit for University

    The DTXplorer, in my opinion, is the best entry kit there is. It's cheap, has a great module, reliable hardware, and folds up for easy storage (perfect for a dorm or small apartment). A brand new...
  8. Re: Yamaha DTX500K... How do I add a Tom and a Cymbal???

    Yes, you need a splitter. One that will split the stereo jacks into two mono jacks. If you look on the back of the module you'll see that certain inputs are labeled as "3/7" or something like that...

    Re: TD-4K2 vs ALESIS DM10 Studio

    1) The TD-4 module has MIDI out. You can plug it straight into your computer and use whatever drumming software you'd like. The Alesis Trigger IO is so that you can use MIDI without having a drum...

    Re: Acrylic Cymbals

    Your best bet is to upgrade to Yamaha's other cymbals — PCY135, PCY155, etc. They are reliable, accurate, and have that real-cymbal swing. It's as good as it gets when it comes to eCymbals. Nothing...

    Re: New drummer looking to upgrade

    If you're willing to spend $1,500 on the TD20 module then, as others have said, you may as well upgrade everything. In your situation I'd get myself a Roland TD9 kit and spend an extra $60 to load...

    Re: Simmons or Alesis?

    Alesis is better quality than Simmons in all aspects. That's not to say that Alesis is the best, but it's certainly better than Simmons. If those are the only two kits on your radar, go with Alesis.

    Re: Sabian B8 16" Rock Crash

    Many people assume the metal automatically determines the cymbal quality, which isn't entirely true. B8 is cheaper mainly because it's easier to make. Whether it sounds better or worse than anything...

    Re: What to use to clean the brass

    All of the cymbal manufacturers have their own line of cymbal polish. They all work well but can require significant elbow grease depending on how dirty the cymbal is.

    I own the XS20 Super Set (14" hats, 10" splash, 14-16-18" crashes, 20" ride) and they are great cymbals. I just wish I could've mix-and-match the set so I could get the traditional finish hats and...

    If you're looking for a "realistic" hi-hat the RHH135 is pretty much your only option. Be aware though that it is a two-zone cymbal (bow and edge) and the DTXplorer only supports a single-zone hi-hat...

    Re: Splash pad - instead of PCY-10

    Yamaha has begun producing the PCY-100, which is a 10-inch 3-zone cymbal. You can find them for around $100. You probably don't need 3-zones, though, so you'd be paying $100 just for the cymbal...

    The TD4 is indeed an entry-level kit, both in hardware and the module. Not saying that what you purchased isn't good, it just pales in comparison to Roland's top-of-the-line stuff. Even the mesh...
