Well, yes

Michael466, 24.01.2012

Das Display ist für ein so aktuelles Gerät eher schlecht. Zwar groß, aber mit geringer Auflösung. Es ist kontrastarm und aus leicht seitlicher Sicht kann man schon nichts mehr erkennen.

Das gesamte Gerät einschließlich Chassis ist aus Plastik. Schaun wir mal wie lange es hält.

Das Bedienkonzept ist ganz gut gelöst, abgesehen von der Phrase-Looper-Funktion. Letztere entbehrt jeglicher Logik und ohne Handbuch geht da gar nichts. Im Live-Einsatz würde ich mir den Stress nicht antun.

Der Kopfhörer-Ausgang ist für hochohmige Hörer viel zu schwach. Die Stromversorgung kommt über ein externes Netzteil mit dem bekannten, wackligen Ministecker. Das Stromkabel wirkt billig und unflexibel.

Aufgrund der vielen Unzulänglichkeiten halte ich den Preis für nicht angemessen. Mehr als 400,- Euro dürfte so ein Gerät eigentlich nicht kosten. Das hat wohl damit zu tun, dass es kein vergleichbares Konkurrenzprodukt gibt." data-mt-lang="en-x-mtfrom-de" data-translated="The percussion sounds are OK, the "so-called" drumsounds are rather useless.

Good E-Drums

moberts, 15.02.2013
After a long time, I have the Roland SPD-30 "Octapad" added, since I have an extension or a sounder extension for my TD-4K2.
Generrell like the Octapad very well, the sounds "crack" nice and also Percussionfreunde will have their fun with it.

However, I find the high price for what you get is not justified, since it contains only limited sounds.
The looping function is really first cream, however, it is hard for me to integrate the loops into my normal drumming.

In my opinion, all the "only" looking for a supplement for their e-drum should look for an alternative.

Conclusion: buy from the money rather new pads or better basins for your drums.
