Möglichkeiten bis zum Abwinken... Nach 4 Jahren immer noch begeistert!

Ein bis jetzt konkurrenzloses Instrument. Für Finger-Drumming, Hand-Percussion und mit Stöcken gespielt deckt es nahezu die ganze Bandbreite der Percussion-Welt ab. Klar gilt auch hier - wie bei Edrum-Sets: Nicht vergleichbar mit dem direkten Feel akustischer Originale. Aber: Elektronik erschließt stets andere Welten des Ausdrucks und da geht eine ganze Menge. Es braucht Jahre bis das ausgeschöpft ist...

Dennoch gibt es einige Wermutstropfen: Da wäre zunächst das bescheuerte externe Netzteil. Billiges PVC-Knitterkabel... Ich hasse diese Dinger !!! Nicht nur Roland nervt uns zudem mit verschiedenen Varianten dieser mistigen Teile. Nicht mal innerhalb einer Produktfamilie kriegen die das gebacken für alle Teile dasselbe Netzteil zu verwenden! Dümmer geht es kaum...

Und was mir auch gar nicht gefällt: Fehlende XLR-Ausgänge...

Trotz dieser Faux-Pas: Leider immer noch alternativlos.

Das Roland HPD-20 Hand Percussion Pad Handsonic ist wirklich ein Einzigartiges E- Percussion Instrument. Es ist professionell und sehr solide gebaut. Es macht wirklich spass damit zu arbeiten. Es ist halt ein Profiequipment aus dem hause Roland.

Mein Fazit : Das Roland HPD-20 Hand Percussion Pad Handsonic ist ein muss für jeden Drummer und Percussionist und darf in kein Studio oder Proberaum fehlen.
