I purchased one PDX-6 V-Pad to add a fourth tom to my Roland TD-9K kit. After playing with the PDX-6 pad, I quickly realized that it was so responsive and with a feel like a traditional drum head, that I no longer enjoyed playing on the rubber PD-8 tom pads that came with the TD-9K. So I purchased two more PDX-6 pads and I am very happy with them. I'm drumming more now, because the mesh heads are a pleasure to play, and I think my playing has improved. I was originally worried that the smaller playing surface of the PDX-6, which is about 1" less in diameter than the PD-8, would be a problem, but it's not an issue for me. I'm now planning to replace my one remaining rubber tom with a mesh-head pad, but I haven't decided whether to get another PDX-6, or a PDX-8, or move my existing PDX-8 (snare) to the tom 4 position and buy a newer mesh pad for the snare. But for now, I know for certain that the PDX-6 V-Pads are a great upgrade from the rubber pads, and well worth the price!
The Roland V-Pad is a great drum pad! Players of any level will appreciate the way the V-Pad reacts to every drum stroke. The product is extremely durable and will not break. It even has adjustments to change the tension on the pad, ensuring it will never get too loose feeling. This pad came with my Roland TD-4 kit as the snare. It works excellent, allowing me to do tricky rolls that would not be possible with a rubber head. The mesh makes such a difference! Also, the rim trigger on the pad works perfectly how its supposed to! This pad can take a beating!
I am currently using a Roland V-Drum Kit, and I love it. It came with this type of head. It works great and serves its purpose, however I would still suggest that you purchase the Roland Dual-Trigger Mesh V-Pad, if money is not a problem; but this product will serve you just as well, and costs a fraction of the price.
I have been using the Roland V-Pad with my Roland TD-4 drum set for about a year, since starting lessons. Very pleased with purchase. Reliable preformance every time. A very responsive mesh head with a good 'feel'. Quality product at a decent price.
This drum pad is great for any kit. I use it for my SD7K from SIMMONS as a snare and I love it. It's great for rolls, triplets, etc. The bounce is so great and it's really responsive. I recommend this for everyone beginner or expert. I've been playing for about a year and a half and am disappointed I didn't buy this sooner! Great value!
