Value For Money : Excellent
*** Excellent, excellent value for money

Roland Standard model upgraded with a basic snare 12 "mesh head (against a real dimension of 8.5" for the base model), hit a hat (charley against the pedal that is not top) + an additional CY6 crash. I am amateur bass player base, but former percussionist.

So RACK TD6 / Hit Hat VH11 + Foot / 3 x PD-8 toms (8.5 ") / 1 x CC (12") PD 125BK / 3x CY-8 / Pad KD-8 + GC GC Pedal Pearl / TD Module -6KW / Roland headphone / Head / Amp 10W (also 30, 100 and 200W)

in Rab FD8 (charley original pedal that I keep for resale) and one PD-8 with associated cables
I wanted to find my old feelings of drummer, frustrated at the time of not being able to play apart. (In years 75/85 y'avait nothing but the silent drive) and ca .... does it!
Note that I have children (thus the Smurfs), which also like the beast in addition to their basic instrument.
Sound: Perfect for me, the samples are nice but the pieces of rhythm to work on a background. The Pads are correct, especially after the upgrade charley and snare.
You can make a real drum roll, all shots are played and rebounds. The chabada cymbals is also very correct.
The bass drum makes, but I think change GC pedal for a double chain more responsive. I do not have the level nor the utility for a double pedal.
General Notice
Perfect. There's no more apparent in this price range, especially in time.
The Special Yamaha DTX also provided a hat and a cymbal hit added, but the sound module is not up to the Roland.
The new drumkit without hit hat, no bass drum pedal and a mesh head pad of 8.5, is about 1400 euro. With my upgrade (over 600 euro and more at the best rates ..... German) and a seat, a headphone, a 10W amp I have not found better (but I also have a 30W, a 100W and a 200W making it possible to really change the sound)
In short: not bulky, good sound (headphones or amp) good feelings (with hat and hit Pad 12 ") as easily resalable or Yam DDrum with less financial loss because the quality of ... TD6KV is known.
A tip: buy second-hand TD6KV to € 800 / 900 you can buy an upgrade of the pads. Another strategy: buy a 500/700 TD3KV then resell the module (looking at trigger) and buy a module 6 used (approximately 350 / 450) from a guy who goes from 6 to 12, for example, sells its etqui module (I tested it exists, but be patient!) Best time for buying used of course the early summer.
Ignore the prices indicated on the rating sites, they are ... Virtual .. no one sells for prices for the simple reason that there are 50 sellers for a buyer! The buyer decides if he is patient and that the seller is pressed .....( from -10% to -50% in real prices that the sellers want)
