I have a couple of old, but good, Roland TD6 and TD8 drum kits and now that my abilities have improved, I fancied an upgrade. A new kit seems out of the question at this point so I turned to Ebay.
I was hoping Ebay would be awash with kits in the run up to Christmas but, surprisingly, no. Plenty of overpriced older models and nothing along the TD12 lines I was hoping for. I did find a TD30 for around £4,500 but why would you buy a second-hand TD30 when for probably with a little haggling, you could buy a brand new TD50 for around £750 more. And the TD30 featured wasn’t the much-desired TD30KV. Apparently, this was one of the greatest kits Roland have ever made and everyone says they couldn’t understand why they stopped producing it.
So it seems at this point, only a Roland TD30KV will do. I suspect I may be in for a long wait. But if you do see one, tell it I’m looking for it.
Incidentally, I dropped by my local drum store and while they had an excellent selection of conventional kits, their V Drum selection was pretty limited. Anyway, it was nice browsing and being around fellow drummers for twenty minutes.
