Here I craqu has spent several years I wanted buy a drumkit but the problem "neighbors" to me empch. Then came little by little the idea of purchasing an electronic headset on more emmerd ears ... with the adjacent population. After several tests on Yamaha and Roland I ended up choosing the Roland TD-3KV. First for the budget I m'tais fix. But also for sound quality that I find better than the DTX series from Yamaha.
I could take the TD-6DX but I found the difference in cost too lev 500 more for possder a module, it is true a lot more performance, but which is serves little. When you have chosen sounds, you rarely change.
After a few days of use I do not regret my purchase (let it be said) and frankly I take my foot.
Charley: nothing to do with a real hi-hat I can not seem to recall the feeling of a true, the opening of the pedal setting is bizare I can not find the semi openings. The sound is very low when closing the hi-hat. And then the hi-hat cymbals, well it's not it's a cymbal pad, the bounce is different
The pads are a reduced diameter but it is only a matter of habit, I still sometimes rattling chopsticks.
Sounds! sounds! Sounds !, can be its drumkit with the sounds you dessire small onions
The snare drum pad (dp 85) FABULOUS small but Maouscosto, good bounce, bearings are alone.
Tom pads are (identical to charley pad !!!!) will have much better rebounding are very correct, even surprising in the bearings.
The cymbals: rebounds very correct, they do not move like real (this has been bizare) but I am satisfied, only small BMOL there are only 2 sounds. Sound bell when tapped on top is not reproduced.
The Pad Bass Drum: THE PANARD I put a pedal TAMA, I have found no difference, I even found a much better now true.
Module: This possde all the sounds I DSIRE. Branch complement in my walkman or my chain it gives me the feeling that I had when I was doing the scene (must close your eyes, I'm still in my little house) and allows me to play with the great last night i was with "LED ZEPPELIN". Its default when your on Channel 32 and you want to return to Channel 2 or 3 must be pressed again backwards many times. A small digital keyboard would was better.
That is all this has to tell you that I m'clate and I recommend its purchase.

Hello all! Here I intend to buy an electronic drum kit soon, but I hesitate between the td-td-6kV and 3kV of Roland. Knowing that I do not need the sequencer mode TD-6, found now TD-3 with a pad in PD80-r snare, I wonder if it's worth it to € 500 more for the top model.
Deplus I saw a video on the website of Roland US or the sounds of the TD-3 seemed to me more than satisfactory!
I'd like your opinion on this model to facilitate Aquis my choice!
In advance thank you soon

I have now for one month and a half this electronic drum kit and I'm happy.
This is a great tool, which allowed me to make rapid progress: Before I had an acoustic drum in my room and I could never play because I live in an apartment and my neighbors was a two fingers to kill me in pain ...
The sensations of the drumkit are quite well: the mesh pad skin of the snare drum is a success, although it is much smaller than a real snare drum ...
For the other pad, it's okay to work but it is far from being faithful to one acoustic, while the bass drum pad is fine with me!
As for the hi-hat, I am very disappointed. The pedal works very poorly and shape of the pad is not very suitable. To work's enough, but not to work the opening of Charley ... Must be pressed very hard on the pedal for the hi-hat closes.
Finally, to the sounds of the modules ... it's okay but not great. There is little choice on the toms and they'll not like me. For the snare drum, there are two decent choices but they have defaults: the best snare sound change in a big hit, so he is not used to record since it would spoil the whole piece.
I had to spend time on beautiful settings in the module, nothing to do: he disappears, the snare is more dynamic in the song.
The cymbals have a good sound although the choice is fairly limited.
Finally the sound of the bass drum is not bad, the one I took a punch and comes out well on my demos.
The value for money seems okay but it's sad that Roland, left all competition, have a policy that forces people to buy their best models. They could have put the best drum sounds, but they are not made to be bought a TD6, see 12 or 20 ...
I do it again this choice because the drumkit fully met my expectations: I work for 1 to 2 hours a day quietly, replacing a drum machine on my demos.
