The TD-17 KV-S V-Drums Electronic Drum Kit from Roland is the latest addition to the V-Drums series of electronic drums built with training tools that are designed to push you further. It includes: 1 x TD-17 sound module with Bluetooth, 1 x PDX-12 snare, 3 x PDX-8 Tom V-pads, 1 x CY-5 hi-hat, 1 x FD-9 hi-hat control pedal, 1 x CY-8 Ride Cymbal, 1 x CY-8 Crash Cymbal, 1 x KD-10 kick pad, and an MDS-4V drum rack stand. Combining a TD-50 class sound engine with updated pads, the electronic drum kit can be used to mirror the physical movement, stick coordination, and hand/foot control that is like playing an acoustic drum set.
An array of built-in coaching functions will track your technique, measure your progress, and increase your motivation to becoming a better drummer. In addition, if you regularly play acoustic drums, you shouldn’t have to change your playing style to use an electronic drum kit. The TD-17 KV-S V-Drums allow you to use the same playing techniques you’d use on an acoustic kit.
Other features include: a sound module mount, AC adapter, a special connection cable, and a drum key. Wireless stream your favorite songs from your smartphone into the sound module via Bluetooth and play along with your favorite band, or rehearse the tunes you’ll be playing on stage. Hear the performance back in your headphones. You can even record your performance and then listen back and decide where you need to improve. Becoming a better drummer is still hard work, but the TD-17 KV-S can help you get there.
