Top Customer Reviews
First, a quick summary:
- Great features on the device (More on that later)
- Pads feel good to hit, the snare especially
- Very adjustable
- Cymbals lack diversity in sound
- Doesn't come with a bass kick
Altogether I'm very happy with this purchase. Roland has made a great set and I don't have buyers remorse.
Now back to the size stuff. Take a look at the photos below. When folded up, the sides measure 2' 5" in length, the middle section measures 1' 2" and the height of the whole unit with the cymbals down is 2' 5". Hope this helps everyone out.
As for sounds, this unit is great. Quite the variety of pre-programmed sounds, which can all be fine tuned to exactly what you'd like. Programming is as complex as you want it to be. I found it to be rather intuitive, but if not, the cd-rom instructions and videos were nice. Still messing with everything, but I've loved what I've discovered in the few months that I've been using it.
For the cons, I'll try and use colloquial terms. The cymbals just don't have that lovely diversity of sounds you can achieve with acoustic ones. Sure, these work very well for digital ones. Strike harder for louder sounds, hit the rim for rim sounds and so forth. However, you can't really crescendo, fortissimo or decrescendo with them, which makes them limiting to the music or effect you are going for. Also, sticks don't really have a factor any more. Coated or plain, they all produce the same sound when the pad is hit (surprise, surprise, I know, just wanted to point that out).
If you have additional questions, please feel free to ask and I'll my best to reply to them. No, I don't work for Roland and I'm not a shill. This is my first foray into Digital Sets, I still prefer acoustic sets, but I needed something small and diversified to be mobile with. This really fit the bill.
So... I go to the music stores and badger the drum guys for feedback and recommendations. Pretty consistently vague at best about Alesis. Roland and Yamaha seem to be the conventional choice while Alesis promises big and falls short in reality. I have written reviews on both kits if you want to hear more of my whining or perhaps my specific complaints.
The TD11K does everything it promises. It is responsive and functions precisely as you would want or expect it to with a decent variety of kits and voices to satisfy in all likelihood any level of drummer. Simply put, when you hit a pad it makes a noise which sounds like a drum... If you don't hit a pad it doesn't make a noise.
The TD11K is user friendly and easy to navigate and tailor voices and kits to your preferences. The USB thumb drive allows you to load loops as well as full MP3 tracks which you can play along with.
Don't be mislead by physical appearances. The TD11K looks very similar to the Alesis DM6 which both look like a toy next to the Alesis DM10X but neither of the latter are worth taking out of the box in my opinion. Read some blogs, there are people that are very happy with Alesis products. I was not and have reviewed all 3 kits in an effort to same some of you the trouble I encountered.
Now... If you can afford the Roland TD11KV (with mesh heads, about $1600) I would heartily recommend that upgrade or you can do like I did and upgrade with mesh pads purchased separately. The TD11K comes with PD-8A pads which are rubber and single zone pads for the toms, and a PDX-8 (8" dual zone mesh pad.) for the snare. I have upgraded to a PDX-100 (10" mesh head dual zone) for a snare and PD-85 (8" mesh head dual zone) for the toms. The feel and response is worlds apart.
I like the TD11K I anticipate using and enjoying it for years to come. If someone hands me $4,500 I would confidently throw it at a TD30K-V pro even though it would be wasted on a poser like me.
Read the blogs... Do a search for Roland Vs Alesis vs Yamaha... Do the research before you invest... Better yet, go to Guitar City or Sam Ash or any local retailer that carries electronic kits and TRY THEM OUT. Amazon is always competitive in pricing with reputable sellers.
The set-up is very simple - took me about an hour to put it together.
*** Just FYI, this kit DOES NOT include a kick pedal, throne, amplifier/speaker, or sticks, and the headphone port only accepts a stereo jack. To play it straight out of the box, at the very least you will also need to purchase a kick pedal, throne, sticks, and a pair of headphones with a stereo jack adapter. In order to play without headphones, the amps designed specifically for electric kits run about $250. I've tried using guitar amps, but the sound quality is garbage, and I don't have any speakers to try out. Also, if you want to play double-bass, you can get away with purchasing a cheap traditional kick pedal, as you can program the high-hat pedal to act as a second kick.
