Comments about Roland HandSonic HPD-20 Digital Hand Percussion Controller:
The Handsonic is a lot of fun to customize and play, especially if you're patient, and enjoy tweaking. The out-of-the-box kits are hit or miss, as usual, but with a little tweaking, you can make most of them sound great. If you are familiar with other Roland percussion instruments like the Octopad or V-Drums, the tweaking is similar and flows well. I use it for my own enjoyment and have not used it to play out. I find it relaxing and a real joy to play.
