The Roland TD-17KVX is fitted with Roland's new TD-17 Module. This module includes a wide array of 50 high quality preset kits that feature Roland's Prismatic Sound Modeling. This feature was first introduced in Roland's TD-50 series, their top of the range, flagship V-Drums kit. Prismatic Sound Modeling conveys every element of your performance in thrilling detail. The sounds accurately reproduce the character and tone you input in your playing style as if you were playing an acoustic kit, such as natural tonal changes that vary depending on where you hit the pad or the cymbal and how hard you're playing. Combined with the increased pad size and trigger accuracy, you're guaranteed an expressive and resonant playing experience with incredibly authentic drum sounds and a playing feel to match.
Roland has introduced a new feature to the TD-17KVX and TD-17KV intermediate-level V-Drum kits, the PDX-12 snare pad. This pad is larger than any available pad on any other intermediate-level V-Drum kit, and features high quality materials and a newly designed hoop rubber that provides an authentic feel much the same as hitting an acoustic drum. The pad is fitted with a dual ply mesh pad head. The head is tension adjustable combined with the dual ply head offers a natural rebound, resistance and stick-feel. Also fitted is a low-height hoop which is similar to triple flanged hoops featured on acoustic snares. Two independent sensors provide separate sounds to the head and rim, ensuring that the pad provides an authentic playing experience and makes the most of Roland's Prismatic Sound Modeling Engine.
All the kits from the TD-17 V-Drum range feature a wide variety of in-depth, easy to use training functions and interactive learning and improvement tools that encourage the development of both basic and demanding skills and make practice fun and productive. Players can work on the time keeping with several Coach Mode exercises, build on stamina with daily exercise routines with the Warm-Up menu and capture progress and identify weak points that need working on with the onboard recorder. The TD-17 also features the integration with Melodics for V-Drums, a Windows/Mac application that provides a large selection of free drum lessons to work on rhythm, timing and muscle memory.
Roland have introduced their new VH-10 V-Hi-Hat pads on the TD-17KVX kit from the TD-17 series. These hi-hat pads mount on most standard acoustic hi-hat stands and replicate the authentic feel and swinging motion of a real hi-hat cymbal. The VH-10 features advanced in-depth triggering with continuous detection of whether the hats are open or closed and separate sounds for the bow and the edge of the cymbals. This allows you to play the hi-hats in the same style as acoustic hats with the identical techniques with incredible authenticity.
The TD-17KVX features a rarely found feature in electronic drums, Bluetooth connectivity. This allows you to directly stream music to your V-Drums kit, letting you play along to your favourite songs, as well as allowing you to rehearse along to songs you'll be playing live. The module features a handy holding slot for your smartphone. You can even record your performances and listen to back to them, allowing you to identify where you need to improve.
All of the three kits in the new TD-17 series feature the newly designed KD-10 kick pad. This features a rubber cover combined with a cushion that's dedicated to absorb far more of the noise than the KD-9 kick pad that was previously used in the intermediate-level V-Drum kits. The pad still provides the satisfying thud due to the depth of the pad allowing the beater to sink deep into the pad. The KD-10 accommodates single pedals and dual pedals, as well as being compatible with Roland's Noise Eater pedal to further provide a near silent playing experience.
The non-marring easy access clamp of the Heavy Duty Kick Drum Pedal means it will fit any bass drum and allows easy access on the side of the pedal, as opposed to underneath the foot plate. The quad sided beater gives you varying options of attack to suit your playing style and comes with a drum key and allen key to ensure you have everything you need for a quick and easy set up.
