We say :
Roland's SPD-SX is a wonderful and intuitive percussion sampling pad that can be used in conjunction with any acoustic or digital drum kit. Featuring 9 pads, you can use a range of preset percussion sounds or assign your own samples to the pads from your computer using the software provided.
We recommend putting your SPD-SX on a solid PDS-10 stand given that you are going to hit it - a lot!
