Roland - Free TM-2 Trigger Module with TD-25 Electronic Drum Kits
Roland has extended its promotion on TD-25 V-Drum Kits! Until the end of March, you can claim a free TM-2 Drum Trigger with the purchase of any TD-25 V-Drums electronic drum kit.
Roland’s TM-2 Trigger Module lets you quickly fill in the gaps in your acoustic palette. The small module comes pre-loaded with drum and percussion sounds, but it can also be loaded with your own samples for maximum versatility when performing.
When used with a kit from the V-Drums TD-25 series, the TM-2 lets you layer extra sounds on the kick and snare (or on any drum/cymbal). Alternatively, just add some extra pads to expand the number of sounds available from your V-Drums kit.
The TM-2 module doesn’t only work with V-Drums either. If you’re gigging with acoustic drums, adding the TM-2 makes it easy to layer electronic sounds and samples over your acoustic drum sound, or you can even expand the number of sounds available from your acoustic kit by connecting the module to some electronic drum pads.
For a limited time, when you buy a V-Drums TD-25K/KV/KVX, you’ll receive a TM-2 Trigger Module (and the cables and clamps you need to connect and mount it) free of charge*. Just purchase your TD-25K/KV/KVX from Gear4music, register your kit with Roland (which also activates your extended warranty) and Roland will send you the TM-2 bundle directly.
