Cool I am an acoustic nut!!!

I played V Drums on a recording some time ago and in rehearsals but find them a little too sensitive. Give em a good bashing and the blooming lot fires off!!

Double bass drum riffs sound life a quad bass kit............. Very Happy

Very Happy I know what you mean by that bonz. As said - only ever had an acoustic kit play behind me. Prefer to feel the beats going through my back and vibrate right through to the front if you know what i mean. Can't imagine an electronic kit doing that for me. Had a feeling you were a bit of an old school traditionalist just like me Wink Very Happy

In the interests of balance, I'd like to say that I've played a V-drum kit both in the studio and live, and it was great - felt just like a 'real' kit. But then, as mentioned before, I AM the politest drummer in Hampshire, if not the whole of the South of England! To an extent, it's horses for courses - if volume is a consideration, then V-drums give you far more control for balancing the overall sound.

Mind you, having said all that, you WILL still have to pry my acoustic kit from my cold, dead fingers. Wink

Very Happy Don't get me wrong Tanj, my son loves his V kit but swears he doesn't get the response through the sticks to his arms as he does on his acoustic kit. Very Happy

Cool My point with V drums is exactly that!

The drum response is flat and the cymbals just don't respond like the good old tin things. I use a range of cymbals from an 8" splash up to a thumpin' 20" Avedis Zildian crash (loverly jubilie!!) I his them and they move freely. The V Drum cymbals are very heavy and do not move!

After a session on the V Drums I end up with a bad case of RSI!!! Cool
