Nothing Compare to Roland

By Kruegmeister

from Shelby Twp, MI

Comments about Roland PDX-8 V Drum Electronic Drum Pad:

I Started off with a cheap set that was pretty good by alesis. I slowly upgraded to some used roland PD-6 pads which were alot better. Then I got a Pintech Mesh Head Snare Which was good but then I got the PDX-8 for my snare and some used PD-80 pads for my Toms. There really is no comparison. The Roland stuff is so much better in my opinion. It feels better it seems more responsive. I have become a firm believer in the Roland gear and have replaced everything on my set a couple pieces at a time. This PDX-8 is very light but quite durable. The Light weight is good for Rack Systems. The Rim Shots are much more natural than what I experienced on my Pintech Snare that I was using. The Pintech was good but the Roland is just a little better and more responsive in my opinion.

A versatile drum for a versatile drummer

By RawDawg69

from Philadelphia, Pa.

Comments about Roland PDX-8 V Drum Electronic Drum Pad:

When I first saw the PDX-8, I thought it was a cool looking drum. When I first picked it up, I was a little leary because it felt really light, and I wasn't too sure of the plastic base. I should have known better, it's a Roland. I've had a pair of them for a month now, and I have used them as snares and toms. They seem to be holding up, and I have come to appreciate the fact that they are lighter. I somehow think it won't cause so much stress on my MDS-6SL. I couldn't be happier with my purchase of the PDX-8.

Decent upgrade

By Buffytvs

from Racine, WI

Comments about Roland PDX-8 V Drum Electronic Drum Pad:

I own 3 of these pads. Currently I have them set up as toms 1-3 in my td-8 kit. These pads have as good a feel as any of the other mesh head roland pads I own. When used as a snare, I found positional sensing was not as accurate, as with my pd-85 or pd-125. As a bonus I have been able to reliably trigger rim sounds on my td-8 with these pads,by stiking the rim at the 7 or 5 o'clock position, which is something I was unable to do with PD-85's. Overall I would recommend this as an upgrade from any gum rubber pad, and I love them as tom replacements.

Comments about Roland PDX-8 V Drum Electronic Drum Pad:

In early 2006 I purchased this drum set for my practice space, one of the sensors lost contact due to corrosion(something spilled on it a very long time ago) I bought the replacement pad, set is good as new, with some improvements over the old sensor, sensitivity had to be turned down from stock setting as the feel is more natural than the original. I am old still soaking sensor with corrosion inhibitor in hopes of reviving so as to have a back-up or use as alternate sound pad.
