Better Response, More Durability In A Rubber Pad!

The ideal rubber pad for toms and hi-hats, the Roland PD-8 is a redesigned and upgraded trigger that features a new rubber formula for better "feel" and response as well as longer life. Dual-trigger support lets you play more accurate rim shots and better-defined bow/edge cymbal sounds (when used with a Roland TD-series module).

The best for V-6 drums

I have bought several versions of the mesh drum pads but have found that these rubber pads have a much better response for two totally different sounds from the center to the edge for the V-6 drum module. Easy to program for a personal sound combining select sounds from different factory drum kits to build your own.

That's the ticket!

I had always wanted to add a fourth tom to my Roland TD-6V drum kit. It wasn't quite as easy as I hoped, because I couldn't just "Plug and Play." ;) ...but after reading my drum kit's manual closely, I managed to find the procedure for setting up the new pad. In other words, it pays to read the fine print! :D Kudos also to my Sales Engineer Matt Emick, who contacted his Roland rep to make sure I could "make the connection!"

Great supplemental pad for a TD-30.

I needed a pad for a ride cymbal for my TD-30. I was hoping I could use the edge trigger for the bell but it does not trigger with the same sensitivity thus just the 4 rating. I use this pad for my ride cymbal and mounted on the same rod I put a BT-1 for the bell. That works well.

Its Roland so I wasn't supprised on how great it is and the quality but to say that it blows me away well it did not do that. Im sure the more expensive ones would blow me away. I plan on buying at least 3 more of these pads.
