Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but seeing as ultimate-drums.com doesn't exist and UG doesn't have a drums section I'll ask here and brace myself for Pit style answers.

Basically I'm looking for an electronic drum kit, I've got a budget of around £1000 and want to know if anyone has experience with this one:

It's a Roland TD-3KW if you can't be bothered with the link. I'll also need some sort of monitoring system so was considering this:

and the rest of the budget will end up going on a bass drum pedal, throne and some sticks.

So Pit, any drummers in who can help/have experience with that kit... or any kit really? (or anyone who just wants an excuse to inform a few people that he/she cums blood)

I'd go in to a music shop that specialises in drums, they would be pretty good to ask as opposed to a bunch of guitar players...

You had to sneak it in there, huh?
Poop.


Yes, poop.

I've done that, although I'm slightly cynical of anyone who has something to gain from selling me something so am just trying to get as many oppinions as possible. I hoped all the blood cuming may have granted somebody super powers style drum knowldge by now

I've tried a Roland VDrum (I think it was the top model, 't was at my guitarschool). Not being a drummer and thus having no experience I can't be very accurate, but it seemed very realistic when compared to an acoustic drumset. I'd definitely buy a roland VDrum if I would want to buy an electric drum set.

To be fair, I did kind of encourage it, blood cummers are always welcome in my threads

I've tried it out. Good entry level kit for learning and practicing I suppose. Good enough for recording demos probably, but nothing beyond that. Definitely wouldn't gig with it. Just don't think it's versatile enough or sounds realistic enough for gigs or quality recordings. I would definitely recommend it for learning or quiet practice though.
The setup:
Fender MIM Fat Strat (midnight wine)
Fender Blues DeVille 410
Digitech GNX3 Multi-effect
Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric

Well first thing is I'd really reccomend getting an acoustic set, everythings bigger, it sounds better, funner (imo). But if you're set on an electric drumset Rolands are really good.

If you're in the Market for an electric set I would also recommend Roland's Vdrums, obviously you would have to get an earlier model but overall I think they are of better quality, you can get hundreds of more sounds, and the heads are usually mesh witch makes for more bounce, much more realistic. I'm not sure of the exchange rate from U.S. dollars to Euros, but you can probably find some for near 1000. I would suggest going to Guitar Center, but I don't think they have them in Wales do they?

Cheers man, that's what I was looking for, only really going to be using it for small jams and recording stuff I've come up with so it's probably what I'm looking for. Any idea if I could Midi it in to Reason and use the drum sounds and effects on there to record?

Wish I could but unfortunately lack of space meant selling my acoustic kit.

I've tried the small pad things, but wasn't really impressed+seeing as the tax man is giving me money back figgured I might aswell get something significantish to show for some of it instead of slowly drinking it away lol

It's not worth it unless its at least a TD-9, trust me.


Will have to find somewhere that has one and try it, I was tempted by one of those but was also tempted by a fretless bass, seeing as I already have a bass I may get a better kit instead
