Roland V-Drums TD-50KVX 5-piece Electronic Drum Set with 22" Bass Drum-Hi-hat stand, snare stand, and kick pedal are not included.
With its 22" bass drum, life-size digital snare and ride triggers, and Prismatic Sound Modeling engine, the Roland TD-50KVX kit blurs the lines between traditional acoustic drums and cutting-edge modern electronics. Drums and cymbals are presented in stunning high resolution, with a level of expressiveness that even past V-Drums have been unable to touch. You can tailor the size and composition of each piece on your kit, or import your own libraries via SDHC cards. Then season to taste with onboard room reverb, compression, saturation, and EQ. You can even save snapshots of your kits to A/B any changes you make before committing.
On the pad side, the Roland TD-50KVX's one-up/two-down tom configuration is a fresh change for modern players. As are the digital 14" snare pad and 18" ride pad with multi-sensor technology. Together with the TD-50 module, these give the kit unprecedented realism that is sure to make acoustic players feel right at home.
Roland V-Drums are the undisputed kings of digital drum shaping. And with the TD-50KVX's Prismatic Sound Modeling engine, you can expect nuance and realism like never before. The TD-50KVX's every onboard kit is crafted to sound great without tweaks. But for those times when you need a custom kit for a particular performance, Prismatic Sound Modeling has you covered. You have control over each drum shell's thickness and overtones. Each cymbal's size and thickness. You can even control virtual mic placement to dial in the right amount of natural ambience. Once you've found your sound, sweeten kick, snare, or toms with 30 types of built-in FX, including smooth multiband compression and saturation.
The heart of any modern drum kit, acoustic or electronic, is the snare drum. So it makes sense that the TD-50KVX should include a snare pad that's as sophisticated as its sound module: the 14" Roland PD-140DS. Eight sensors across the head and rim accurately translate your performance to your V-Drums brain. This means fat backbeats, cutting rimshots, delicate ghost notes and brush sweeps, and natural cross-sticks that connect every time. And because of its 14" diameter, the Roland PD-140DS transitions seamlessly between your acoustic kit and back. Tuning is easy with the PD-140DS's 8-lug design and 3-ply mesh head make it easy to dial in whatever level of tightness or sponginess you desire.
Electronic cymbals have a reputation for being utilitarian - a means to end. But the Roland CY-18DR invites players to bring their acoustic touch back to their eKit. This 18" V-Cymbal sways and plays like a real cymbal. Multiple sensors across the playing surface eliminate the feeling of zones - distinct edge, bow, and bell tones melt into one another seamlessly. And the Roland CY-18DR's multi-touch technology not only lets you choke crash attacks with your hand, but also even soften cymbal attacks with a finger's touch. If you have trouble getting the full emotion of a performance to translate through traditional eCymbals, we recommends putting the Roland CY-18DR V-Cymbal digital ride through its paces. You won't be disappointed.
The KD-220, with its 22" maple shell and air-damper mechanics, really feels like you're playing an acoustic kick drum. Of course, it looks the part, too. Advanced triggering within the shell helps transmit every stroke and double with minimal risk of false triggering or machine-gunning. Meanwhile, adjustable/retractable rugged spurs reduce movement on carpet, wood, or concrete.
Whether you're modeling your acoustic kit or copping the latest Slate samples, Roland makes it easy to incorporate these sounds into your V-Drums TD-50 sound module. High-capacity SDHC cards let you create an arsenal of custom libraries and call them up on your V-Drums at will.
You can edit the Roland V-Drums TD-50 module without committing. Use the Snapshot feature to quickly A/B the before and after. And if you like what you've done, save it. If not, scrap it and start over.
With its sophisticated brushed black finish to its expressive kit sounds, the TD-50 is built for the stage. But you may be surprised to learn what a difference the TD-50 can make to your practice hours. Jam along to the TD-50's built-in metronome to practice septuplets and strengthen your internal click. Or loop a groove and solo over it to build your lick vocabulary. What's neat is you can record yourself playing to a click or backing track right onto an SDHC card. This is a handy way to track ideas and share with bandmates.
The versatility of the TD-50 is fully seen in its flexible in and outs. Send drum kits pre-mixed to your FOH engineer using balanced stereo XLR outs, or directly into your home stereo speaker system with unbalanced stereo 1/4" outs. And if you've got mixer channels to spare, send your kick, snare, toms, and cymbals separately via balanced 1/4" direct outs for individual treatment and level control. MIDI in/out even lets you track your performance and replace sounds at a later time.
These drums eDrums are fantastic for home recording. And with the Roland V-Drum TD-50 module, you can do it all over USB — no interface required. You get your 10 main output channels in glorious 96kHz. This means you can enjoy studiophile drum recording, even in your apartment, at any time of day.
