Lovin' my TD-9s!

Comments about Roland TD-9S Electronic Drum Set:

I just got it yesterday, but the TD-9 module is so easy to figure out I've already toyed around with all its features (without the manual). Got the kit set up in about an hour and a half (the first set electronic set I've ever set up). It was easy. Sounds great. Has the ability to customize the set. I've added cymbals to the rims of the three toms which makes it sound like I spent big bucks on a bunch of extra cymbals. Can change the tuning of everything. You can also change the ambiance settings like reverb, room type, etc. Kit is overall quite expressive, though I'm still getting used to the high hat. It's not as smooth from closed to open as I was hoping. The built in kits are awesome and I'd say at least 50% of them are totally usable. I'm going to be recording with it in about a week after I'm solid on it.


V-tour is great!

Comments about Roland TD-9S Electronic Drum Set:

I've never owned an electric drum kit before. I do already own a dm5 unit for triggering my bass drum and octopad. The sounds and editing capability of this module is so much better. I played the kit at a gig on Halloween with no prep except for setting the kit up and playing it for 10 minutes at my apartment. I had no problems using it and I even changed some sounds on the fly during the costume parade. No Problem. Loved it. Set up and break down time is so quick. I bought the V-club cases and they fit perfectly. I am so sick of setting up a kit and mics and submixer. Now it's two bags in the car and I'm done. This does it all and sounds great.


It's awsome!

Comments about Roland TD-9S Electronic Drum Set:

I own an acoustic kit, and to be honest I was really stubborn about using electric drum kits. When I saw all of the features on it, it freaked me out at first! It takes a little while to get used to the size, but its way better than any acoustic kit! If you are on your first kit, get this instead of an acoustic, you'll save a lot more money in the end, trust me, I spent a whole bunch of money upgrading my kit over these past couple years and this would have helped me. If you live in a duplex like me or an apartment, you can just plug headphones in and no one will even hear it at all. I tried it out and it blew me away. You should really think about investing in a kit like this, its a good price for the quality.

Comments about Roland TD-9S Electronic Drum Set:

I am a former part-time gigging drummer living in an apt. When I was active, the only time i heard and got to experiment with my acoustic sound was on the gig...like learning to play a sax with no sound. With a hand injury, I had to quit playing regularly, and lost all interest (in 2000). Electronics were out of my price range. Until they brought out this "budget" kit with the mesh snare and new module. This and the price reduction were what I had been waiting for. In retail, I think they might sell more if they had salesmen that could demo the basics, like balancing the volume of the different kit pieces in relation to each other, and well as in relation to the muaic coming in. Dialing in the different kits is a no brainer. I think they should make it clear that the kick pad is made for a single pedal (to trigger). I made several trips to different stores checking this kit out, and not one was adjusted right. I still think the ride cymbal and hi hat could use more volume (my volume is maxed out). But overall, I love this kit. Mesh snare sounds are great(click is great), rubber pad toms are good (although you have to whack them a bit to get a response) and I like the hi-hat pad (but forget about a double stroke on it and the ride without more top end volume). I love being able to plug in my Ipod, get all the volumes adjusted, and go to town, without bothering anybody. And being able to change kit sounds in the middle of a song makes it all the more fun. I may even get out and start playing again!


Great kit.

Comments about Roland TD-9S Electronic Drum Set:

I personally own a Yamaha DTXplorer, which I love, but I use this kit at church, we have a youth group band. I love this kit, it's amazing, but the price was way out of my range. Lots of people wonder about Yamaha vs. Roland, It all depends on what your doing with it. In the conflict of Roland vs. Yamaha, the only winner is you, they both make great kits.

Great e-kit!

By Big D-Q7Y-p

Comments about Roland TD-9S Electronic Drum Set:

I initially had purchased the TD-9S kit to use for home rehearsal (nice to play at 1:00 AM and not bother the wife), and a few gigs here and there. Since then, it?s become my kit of choice for half my gigs. The rest of the band loves it because they can hear everything I?m doing. The sound guy loves it because it is so easy to mix (even with the single output) and the fact that there is no drum noise from the stage to have to compensate for. I love this kit! Easy setup, easy to use, packed full of features and sounds. From the softest hit to the heaviest rim shot, Roland really has covered it all. Do yourself a favor and add one of the dual-trigger, 3-zone rides to the package.

Comments about Roland TD-9S Electronic Drum Set:

Finally! A review. To start this off GREAT FEEL. This drumset may not have the snazzy mesh pads, but you got a great model. The Hi-Hat sounds are so much more natural. The USB port for playing along with any songs is great. And even if you forget the USB, you'd be smart enough to save some of your favorite songs to the actual module. If I had this, the Hours playing this godess would be A LOT. For the price, it's mostly afffordable. If you have another Roland product but is looking for something more in the brain, this set is for you. The play-along tracks are actual tracks and sound beautiful. If you want the TD12 but can't afford it GET THIS SET!!!!!!!!!


The best bang for your buck!

By JasonB

Comments about Roland TD-9S Electronic Drum Set:

I purchased my TD-S a year ago, and am still blown away by how amazing this kit is. Very quick and easy set-up, great sounds and very reliable triggering. My only complaint is the KD-8 kick pad doesn't seem to have enough rebound, but overall, Roland has released a stellar product that almost anyone can afford. Buy this kit, you won't be disappointed.


From acoustic to this

By hr213

from Union City,TN

Comments about Roland TD-9S Electronic Drum Set:

Sounds are good...snare is excellent. Cymbals have a tendency to double trigger at times if played softly. Sometimes the cymbals dont trigger(rarely). Sounds good through pa. Wiring harness is a little on the cheap side. Bass sounds good. Looks good but overpriced. Easier to play vs acoustic.
