Roland TD-17 V-Drums

Combining flagship-level sound with newly developed pads, the TD-17 kits deliver an experience that’s authentically close to playing acoustic drums, accurately mirroring the physical movement, techniques, stick coordination, and hand/foot control that every drummer needs. They also include integrated access to an array of motivational coaching functions, plus built-in Bluetooth for playing along with songs and video lesson content streamed wirelessly from a smartphone. For home-based players who are serious about taking their drumming to the next level, there’s no better choice than a TD-17 series kit.

At the heart of each kit is the new TD-17 sound module, which provides a superior drumming experience with advanced Prismatic Sound Modeling inherited from Roland’s top-of-the-line TD-50. Its sounds faithfully reproduce the character and tone of acoustic drums, with lightning-fast response time, wide dynamic range, and natural tonal changes that vary depending on where and how hard the pads are played.

‘With 3 different new TD-17 kits, Roland promise to deliver an authentic, and exciting new drumming experience.

Following the huge success of the TD-11 series, we can only assume the TD-17 comes in to change our perception of what electronic drumming is!

The KV and KVX models feature a 12” snare drum pad, bigger and more sensitive than before, with a module that includes many more features than its TD-11 counterpart. Featuring twice as many kits as before (50 presets, and 50 user patches), you will be able to input your own samples, and create your own kits, as well as layering existing sounds, too. Available at Rose Morris by the end of the month, we can’t wait to get our hands on these very promising kits!’
