The Roland TD-17KVX V-Drums Electronic Kit is a high-quality setup suitable for any drummer, from the discerning beginner to the established pro. Featuring all of the essential components you'd need to form a solid drum rig, the TD-17KVX is powered by a highly-intuitive module, boasting an array of different kit sounds and even featuring teaching modes to improve your playing.
With all-mesh pads, this kit offers a very realistic feel and response, with the authenticity of a real acoustic counterpart. This means that you can play with the same amount of expression as you would on a standard kit, with the ultra-sensitive built-in sensors picking up every nuance and detail of your playing, including ghost notes.
As the top of the range TD-17 kit, the TD-17KVX features an additional cymbal pad, giving the player an even more genuine feel.
The Roland TD-17 Module is a versatile, all-encompassing unit that offers up a huge amount of drum sounds and samples. With its ergonomic and easy-to-use interface, you can easily navigate between menus on-the-fly, to ensure that you're spending more time playing than tweaking!
But that doesn't mean that the TD-17 Module lacks features for the fastidious drummer. With plenty of additional treats, including a 'Coach Mode' to help you to develop your practice routine, as well as bluetooth connectivity for music streaming, there are almost no limits to what this intuitive, forward-thinking module can achieve.
Versatile Drum Sounds
With 50 built-in drum kit presets, you can emulate the sounds of a variety of kits to suit genres from jazz to extreme metal. And if you're a drummer that likes to really refine their drum tones, the TD-17 module allows you to layer different drum samples so that you can create some unique and original sounds. Not only that, but with a powerful onboard EQ, as well as internal effects and pitch control, you can virtually sculpt and tune your perfect drum timbres.
If that isn't enough though, you can also import your very own samples too. Whether that be of legendary snares or shells captured in a world-class studio, you can also use this great feature to trigger even synth and vocal samples!
With its sound engine deriving from Roland's flagship TD50 Module, the high-quality modelling technology that the TD-17 has inherited will give you an incredibly realistic amount of dynamic range. Also varying the tone of samples depending on the velocity that you hit a pad with, this module delivers a very genuine feel that will fully translate the articulation of your playing.
If you're an inexperienced drummer looking to really refine a consistent practice routine, you can use the TD-17's built-in 'Coach Mode' to develop your skills. With a 'Time Check' feature, you can play along to a beat with the module monitoring your accuracy, showing you how in-sync your playing is. Not only improving your time-keeping, with the TD-17's record function you can also capture your playing and listen back to review your progress.
'WarmUp Mode' also allows you to begin every session with a number of beats, with different degrees of difficulty. Ultimately, these will improve your sense of rhythm and co-ordination, helping you to become a super-solid and versatile drummer.
