Hi guys.
I have been playing music for 21 years and drums for 16 years.
I am recently getting into electronic drums now that the technologies are allowing drummers to play lower dynamics and trigger sounds. Things are sounding better (Superior Drummer 2.0) and feel better (Roland, Hart, and now Aquarian!).
For those of you with much electric experience, I have a few questions.

1. Wich triggers are better? Hart or Roland? (drum only, not cymbals)

2. When running software like SD2, does the head/brain/module matter?

3. What affects the sensitivity and dynamic response more -- the module, or the triggers?

Thank you



pwc

I really wish I could help but I have never played an electronic kit that I felt comfortable with - those cymbals just don't match Bosphorus .... Smile

I like the Yamaha gear. The sensitivity comes from the pad, but if the module doesn't know what to do with it, it is pointless. Save yourself some money and look into the Yamaha gear, it is awesome and half the price of Roland.

You can only find out what your preference is by trying one yourself. Try going to one of your local stores and test one. In my opinion, always go Roland. Those things are DURABLE. I've pounded as hard as I could on those before and there's barely a mark on them.
