As a guitarist/drummer I use an Electric kit. A variety of sounds at a fraction of the volume.

Does anybody own or play a Roland kit and can you explain your custom patches? I Might make a 'Double Kick' set which actually has a nice ringy snare and some nice splash/chinas, and certainly none of that 'Wash of reverb over the doublekick that sounds like a thousand kicks'.

Wish I could help you. I briefly had the "toy" Roland kit that fits in a corner, but that's as close as I got. If I ever get out of this fucking shitty apartment I live in with the thin floors and walls, I'm definitely getting a proper electronic kit, even if I'll never be the next Marco Minnemann.

I'd also love to hear some inputs on this. I'm electric drum shopping as well - not that I can play them worth a damn, but so that my drummers have something to bang away on that isn't shitty when they're here.

I am no expert either - but if the set has the correct interface can't you just use it to trigger Superior drums - which should mean you can make them sound pretty damn good for not a hell of a lot of money.

It's a really quality kit. I use it for some Bonham stuff, some metal stuff and other 'stuff'. It's a processed sound, but it's amazing compared to other electronic drum kits. It just takes tweaking your own preset, experimenting with the volume mix, the very customisable reverbs, tuning and dampeners (weight, tape, blanket ect).

Very nice.
