great Roland build quality; silly programming

Ferrari Quest, amazon.com
25 December 2011
  • Summary: Out of the box it took about half an hour to get up & drumming. There are no headphones or monitor, no seat, and no sticks, so you're going to need all those things too. There are 10 preprogrammed kits, and only 4 of them would ever be used for real playing. The basic kit sounds are good; I wish the snare rimshot was programmed differently from the head, and I wish the cymbals could be choked by hand.

Small, portable, quality ok, but lacks in settings

  • Summary: Overall it's a great practice kit, but the lack of config settings both in hardware as in the sound (software) is a real pain. For instance, the cymbals, and especially the ride, is very low in volume. You can only change the overall volume, and overall pad sensitivity, not specific pad volume or sensitivity.

Good, not great.

  • Summary: I've had my HD-1 for 48 hours, and I've probably spent 8 to 10 hours playing them. First the good: I'm short on space and the HD-1 is very compact. You can get some decent sounds out of the snare drum. Rim shots are easy and sound OK. The bad: Very limited adjustment options for drum heads and cymbals. You can't do much to change the angles or tilt, and for me not being able to tilt the snare drum is a big annoyance.

" Pratique ... tant qu'on ne la transporte pas ! "

  • Excerpt: J'ai pu emprunter une HD-1 au batteur de mon groupe l'an dernier. Au début ça devait juste être pour une séance répèt-retrouvailles avec un ancien groupe dont j'étais le batteur, pour un week-end. Au final je l'ai gardé presque 6 mois ...
