The Roland TD-1K is the ultimate entry-level electronic kit. Part of the critically acclaimed Roland V-Drums Series, the TD-1K delivers one of their most affordable kits yet, with a fantastic range of sounds and innovative features that are designed especially for the developing musician.
Ease of Use
The TD-1K is extremely simple to use and is made to accommodate even the most advanced technophobe. With its clear layout, the streamlined control panel provides access to all functions in a quick and easy-read manner. The LED screen displays relevant info and tempo information at a glance.
Fun to Play
The Compact TD-1K offers 15 expressive, contrasting drum kit sounds. At the touch of a button, you can switch from rock and blues kits, to jazz, world music and EDM; allowing you to fully explore the world of drums on just a single set. The drums themselves are responsive and fun to play too, with each element supporting essential acoustic drum techniques, including cymbal choke and advanced hi-hat playing.
Develop Your Skills
The TD-1K is perfectly placed to encourage and support the developing drummer with a number of fantastic features and tools. Unlike typical entry level drum sets, the TD-1K kit offers the full expression and dynamic variety of an acoustic kit, allowing players' natural musicianship to develop.
Whether you're self-taught, or developing your skills between lessons, you can take full advantage of the range of fun tutorials, or just jam along with a backing band! There's also an aux in jack, letting you connect and play to to your favourite tunes. An onboard recording function is ideal for getting instant feedback on your playing, or to record your next impressive groove.
The space saving design will easily fit into your chosen living space, with a stylish and modern look to boot. It's also easily adjustable, allowing the drums height to be altered to suit everyone from children to adults. Your neighbours and your housemates/family will also appreciate the noise-reducing design of the pads, and the beater-less kick drum. You can just plug your headphones in and get going without disturbing the peace!
There's enough space and functionality here to eventually expand your setup if you want to change things up a bit. As your skills develop, you may find yourself wanting to add more cymbals and pads to compliment your newfound abilities!
