    there's some cool stuff, the new hi-hat is pretty radical- and not in the surfer kind of way. Some nice sounding snares! Nothing too revolutionary though.

    Actually, I think I loved the new rack the best. Come to think of it, it was kind of revolutionary. Might have to grab one.

    What about that picture of the new Terry Bozzio kit? :D I know diddley about drums and I found that impressive, almost as impressive as what I have seen of the man who plays them.

    Yeah, he's one of the few that deserves a kit like that.
    I have more drums than my talent merits, but that way I don't have to aim as good.

    I just spent some time on the Roland webpage.

    now I have serious GAS!

    I would *love* to have that new V-kit...I'll bet it's going to cost like $6000 though :meh::(

    Or, if they introduce it at the old high price point, then the other kits should go down in price. :meh:

    He kills on the Baby Snakes Dvd, course then so does everybody is Frank's Band.

    You think that's bad? Check this out:

    That whole setup is played by two drummers, by the way. :eek:

    Staying a little on topic, I love the V-Drums, but I think Roland has priced them WAY too high. $6000?! That's a bit much, don't you hink. Maybe if the cymbals sounded real, then maybe.

    I could never adapt to electric drums...I've I had to I could play them, but it wouldn't be willingly. If I'm gonna spend 6K on a set, I think I'd go for a nice Pearl Masterworks.

    I enjoy playing my V-drums, but it takes a lot of work and gear to get them sounding usable live. I'd hoped the new module would simplify a lot of that. :-(

    To my ears, that hard work's payed off, though, Mark. Sometimes it's pretty dang tough to tell your playing electronic drums. I've had drummer friends that couldn't believe you weren't playing acoustic drums.
