Amplification for Roland Vdrums

Recommended Posts

I am looking to buy an amp for my Vdrums. I am need something that will good for playing with a band. Does anyone have any recommendations? Been looking at review sites, but it gets a bit confusing after while. It would be good to hear from anyone who is using an electronic drum with an amp.

My son is looking at the same requirment. He has a Yamaha DTX, & has tried a few options.

A must is 15" drivers, as 12's & 10's will not handle any kick drum or low tom sounds.

Ideally a Powered, 150watt minimum, wedge, (1 X 15 + horn), + an additional passive wedge, (Extension cab) 1 X 15 + horn.

Or a small PA amp & 2 1 X 15 + horn Cabs.

Thanks for the response. That is realy helpful and confirms my findings as I have been trawling the Vdrums forum and think I have an option. The JBL Eon G2 active PA amp gets a lot of positive thumbs up. Its a bit pricey, but it sounds like it handles the top and bottom frequencies. Has your son tried this one?

JBL Eon's are good, but, you will need either a grahic Eq, or parametric Eq between the drum module out, & the input of the JBL.

As you need to pull out the " boxy" mid frequencies usually present as you increase the level.

This normally cant be acheived with a standard bass & treble controls.

My son is currently trying a Carlsbro powered wedge, (1X 15 + Horn) & an extension wedge. Inexpensive & works Ok, as the amp section built into the powered wedge has a 7 band graphic to manage the EQ.
