Too expensiveExcellent feel, just like the real thing. These drums, like all Roland equipment, are seriously overpriced!!

Great snare upgradeI was looking for a larger snare over the 8" pdx-8 that came with my td-11kv kit and was torn between the 3-4 major urade choices available from sweetwater. I thought 12" was too large and that 10" would be perfect considering the biggest tom is 8" and I was right. This ended up being the perfect fit for my situation. Do yourself a favor and move the 8" pdx-8 pad over to replace one of the 6" toms and use this baby as the sanre. You wont regret it. Its thick and very realistic as a snare and the trigger action is spot on as expected. I was a little hesitant to get this as my new snare upgrade considering it was only 200.00 but I was blow away by how perfect it ended up being. It has a cool chrome ring around it making it all the more realistic and once I tightened the head it was playing perfectly on both rim and center triggers. So now I use 1 6"tom 2 8" toms and this as my snare. Perfect!..check this one out. Its an awesome upgrade to any roland kit below the 15kv. Anything above the 15kv (ie. the td-20 or td30 kits) will already have pads of this type. Good luck and enjoy!

hot spot on roland V pad PDX 100I find a hot spot right in the center of my snare pad. Upon some research via different V drum sites these pads have this problem and there's not much you can do to remedy it. the sound cone on this pad is centered right in the center on pad . Changed to suggested parameter to no avail.The PDX 6 and 8's the sound cone is on the perimeter of pad. Other than this it's a pretty good pad. Maybe someday Roland can remedy this problem
