V-Drums Redefined: Ultimate Expression for Pro Performance and Studio Work
As an ambitious pro drummer, you know that anything less than the ultimate sound and feel will hold you back. Introducing the Roland TD-50KVX, the flagship in our acclaimed V-Drums range, created for top-flight live performance, intense practice sessions, and eclectic studio work. Built on the foundation of the new TD-50 module with Prismatic Sound Modeling, this electronic kit provides Roland’s most impressive and wide-ranging sounds yet. The advanced processor is complemented by newly developed snare and ride pads, which feature multi-element sensor systems and high-speed digital communication with the module. The kit also includes top-line tom, crash, and hi-hat pads, and the module provides deep editing features and flexible connectivity to put you in charge. The KD-220 Bass Drum features a 22-inch wooden shell, which provides acoustic feel and big stage presence. Offering supreme playability and unmatched expression, the TD-50KVX delivers the most impactful live V-Drums experience to date.
Roland revolutionized electronic drumming with the iconic V-Drums in 1997. Outstanding dynamics, realistic sound, great response and playability are hallmarks of V-Drums.
And now with the TD-50 Drum Sound Module as the centerpiece, the Roland TD-50KV Electronic Drum Kit elevates the expressiveness, response and playability to a new level. All new sounds have more realism, natural resonance, clarity and a wider dynamic range to capture every nuance of the player’s technique. To achieve the capabilities of the TD-50’s high-resolution sound engine, Roland has developed an updated digital snare pad and ride cymbal that both include a multi-sensor system with digital connection to TD-50 Drum Sound Module.
Featuring a high-resolution multi-sensor system, the PD-140DS snare pad responds accurately and naturally to your drumming technique and nuances, with acoustic-like snare drum playability. With a digital connection to the TD-50 Drum Sound Module, this 14” V-Pad has the expressiveness to please even the most discriminating player.
The PD-140DS V-Pad Digital Snare includes Roland’s most advanced V-Drums technology. Thanks to the newly developed multi-sensor system, the resolution for detecting the striking position on the head as well as the playing dynamics are vastly improved. Even a cross stick can be executed using traditional hand technique and without adjusting any module function.
The PD-140DS includes an advanced 3-layer mesh head for a more natural snare feel and response, and the 14” size matches a standard acoustic snare drum. With this familiar size and outstanding playability, this sound is optimized when connected to the TD-50 Sound Module.
The PD-140DS has a sensing processor inside the cymbal pad to accurately detect the player’s stroke across the entire head of the pad to produce a natural sound from the TD-50 Drum Sound Module. This processor significantly increases the accuracy of the position where the drum head is struck as well as the depth and dynamics when executing techniques such as a buzz roll or a rim shot, to faithfully produce a superior sound, Additionally, and without changing the sound or function in the sound module, you can play a cross stick
naturally without changing your hand position or technique.
Featuring a high-resolution multi-sensor system, the CY-18DR V-Cymbal Digital Ride responds to varied cymbal playing techniques to produce sound accurately and naturally. Comfortable to play, the 18” diameter size is a more traditional size for comfortable playability and the physical motion of an acoustic ride cymbal.
The CY-18DR Digital Ride Cymbal is compatible with TD-50 Drum Sound Module digital pad connection. Thanks to newly developed multi-element sensor system, all nuances of ride cymbal play are faithfully reproduced.
The TD-50 Drum Sound Module includes high-resolution sound elements to recreate deliver sounds that are vivid, bold and practical for performance. Using Roland’s original technology: “Prismatic Sound Modeling” and integrating the V-Drums advanced trigger-sensing technology, the sound is more dynamic sound and faithfully responds to the drummer’s technique and nuance of how the drums are played physically as well as musically.
The professional editing functions of the sounds has been expanded allowing you for even more customizing options to shape sounds and create kits suitable for any style of music. A user sample import function has been added allowing the drummer to add their own .WAV files to the TD-50 to trigger your own sounds, loops, or even layer the imported samples internally to create unique new sounds to expand your creativity and musical expression. Additionally, audio output connections have been enhanced providing more flexibility for recording, live performance, or rehearsal and personal practice sessions.
