I'm learning jazz style drumming, where the hi-hat foot pedal is used a lot. The hi-hat pedal on the TD-1K is very quiet and cannot be heard when the ride, snare and bass drum are all being played. It's the only part of the kit which cannot have it's volume increased, which is very annoying. If I had known that before I bought it, I would have gone with another kit. The other issue I have is the layout of the individual pads/ Cynbals: The available space on the mounting arms is limited and (using the traditional snare drum grip in my left hand) I find it difficult to reach the tom tom on the upper left hand side without bumping against the hi-hat. One last word of warning: when I contacted Roland UK about the quiet hi-hat, they told me there was nothing they could do about it.
