Each pad is equipped with mesh heads for natural rebound, feel, and playability, and feature Roland’s dual trigger technology for accurate and even sensing between the head and rim. In addition, CY-5 cymbal pads are included for cymbals and hi-hat, which provide 10-inch playing surfaces and natural swinging movement. As well as providing a great kit, the TD-1KPX is also equipped with a full host of useful functions to encourage learning including a built-in metronome, USB-MIDI interface, a recording function, internal songs to jam with, plus a Mix In jack for connecting a smartphone or music player to drum along with favorite tunes.

As well as this, the TD-50KV also features a compressor and three-band EQ, which can be controlled for each individual pad, while three independent multi-effects can treat specific drums. In addition, there is also a multi band compressor and four-band equalizer for final processing on the entire kit. The new Snapshot feature, allows users to compare any sound edits before making permanent changes.
The TD-50KV includes many other features not available in previous V-Drums modules including USB capability, where users can send up to 10 channels of audio, allowing easy-to- capture multi-track drum performances in song productions. Users can also load their own custom samples onto an SD card and trigger them from any of the pads.
