The features of this Roland TD-20SX electronic drum set are many.

Roland A: TD-20SX Electronic Drum Set Pros/Cons.

It is the most advanced electronic drum set available from any brand, with the well-known mesh-head pads that perform far better than the pads by any other maker and were said by more than one user to be better for feel than an acoustic kit. The “brain” is second to none, with 920 sounds, 100 kits etc. and allows you to choose mic positioning and beater type as well as the sound itself, also with added ambience, and everything is very customizable.

The new hardware on the Roland TD-20SX Electronic Drum Set provides a very stable and solid setup, which is a big improvement on the earlier versions, and the looks of this kit are stunning too. The improvements on the earlier TD20 are significant, with new sounds and dynamics, as well as the new much-improved hardware. The “key tuning” is said to be remarkable.

Amazon does of course sell the additional components not included in the TD 20SX package, such as kick drum pedal, snare stand, and hi-hat stand.

One of the customer complaints was that to have more than one user preset, you need to pay for additional memory. Other than that, the only consistant complaint was the cost . . . it’s not a cheap kit, but if you are serious about drumming, it’s the best there is, period.

Alternatives to the Roland A: TD-20SX Electronic Drum Set

There are no real alternatives to the TD-20SX because it is the only “best electronic drum set” there is. The only factor that would really make someone choose a different set is the price, and of course there are many less expensive electronic drum sets available.
