Paying The Roland TD-30 Live Is A Dream!
I just purchased the TD-30 from Sweetwater, Summer of 2015. For the past several years I have played live on-stage with a Roland TDW-20 Expanded module and kit. The New TD-30 Module upgrades me to a level of sound and "feel" of an acoustic drum kit. And with the excitement of hundreds of kits and thousands of "tweaks" to get every trigger exactly the way I want in a way I can't with acoustics, I command the stage. I use my TD-30 with my TDW-20 original trigger pads. Everywhere I play musicians and fans ask me so many questions about V-Drums, but more specifically, my new TD-30. I tell them I have never looked back once I had made the conversion to V-Drums. I also use along with my TD-30 kit, a Roland SPD-30 Octapad, a Roland SPD-S sample pad, and two Roland SPD-SX sample pads. Belive me, I am a living, live on-stage advertisement brochure for Roland products. I am constantly talking all my Roland gear up with other musicians and encouraging them to explore all that Roland has to offer the modern progressive drummer. Roland V-Drums and digital pads and samplers give me and my band an edge and a sound no other band in the area can offer, and I am seeing more and more of my fellow drummers adding Roland samplers and pads to their kits or considering the investment into a whole kit. My band refers to my Roland V-Drums as my "cockpit", and for good reason. It does resemble a command center of a space shuttle or star ship! I love playing my Roland V-Drums and pads and I tell you, I recommend the Roland TD-30 Sound Module to you with two, very enthusiastic thumbs up!
