Title: Australian Zendrums?
Post by: Bozwiz on July 14, 2011, 03:21:25 AM
Hey all,

I'm really keen to get my hands on one of these after many hours of drooling! It seems like a bit of an ordeal to get one down here though! has anyone here ordered one from Australia? And how did the process/cost go? The total cost after gst, duties etc.  seems a bit up there!  Don,t get me wrong! I see the value in these instruments! And I really want one! I would just like to know how its all going to pan out and how much its going to cost!  And I have contacted customs but they wont give me an amount for tax/duty until I submit a declaration.

Cheers guys!

Tim.

Smooth as silk. Dave was very helpful - and shipping was a breeze. PM me if you want more info.

The biggest problem with Australian Zendrums is that Dave has to build them upside down.

How would Dave deal with a left-handed Australian?

A potential buyer in Melbourne had contacted me looking for someone to show him their Zendrum. Anyone from Melbourne here?

Hey Bozwiz!

I saw you post this topic in V-Drum land as well.

According to your V-Drums post, you were looking at the Zendrum as a way to expand on your TD-4 module. By the spec sheet on that module, there's no MIDI IN port--you'd have no way for the Zendrum to communicate with the TD-4.  I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I think if you want the Zendrum you're going to have to invest in another module as well.  Anyone feel free to contradict me if my facts are not in order.

Nope, you're correct.  That's why there is a glaring gap in the supported Roland units with ZenEdit:

No MIDI in == no support   ;D

Cheers for that guys!

I was aware though, that my td4 was no use with the zendrum.  I was lucky enough to have an hour with Allan (digitaldrummer) who showed me the best of the best in terms of VSTs and hardware solutions while i played with his Z4.

Thanks again for the heads up though! Nice to see a community looking out for new members!

Cheers.
