The Roland V-Drums TD-50K features the TD-50 Module - a powerful tool for pro drummers. The new Prismatic Sound Modelling technology conveys every element of your performance in thrilling detail. When you combine this module with Roland's new trigger pads with advanced trigger-sensing technology you're guaranteed the most authentic, expressive and resonant drum sounds you'll hear from any electronic kit.
The Roland TD-50K series drum kits utilise a special electrostatic capacitance touch system on the both the PDS-140DS snare drum and CY-18DR ride cymbal. The system allows you to use the same playing techniques that you would use on an acoustic kit, on electronic drums. Playing rim shots is now as simple as placing your hand on the head. The sensors can even detect how your stick hits the rim and will adjust your sound accordingly for the most realistic experience possible. Cymbal muting can now be activated with as little as a finger touch, thanks to the dedicated mute sensor around the bow area of the ride.
The TD-50K includes onboard kits to suit every session. The advanced module supports deep sound customisation, including basic adjustment of heads and shells, layering of internal and user samples, and adjustment of overhead mics and ambience control. For tailored performance, the compressor and 3-band EQ effect can be controlled for each pad individually, while three independent multi-effect sections let you treat specific drums with 30 effect types such as delay, flanger and saturator. The 2-band multi-compressor and 4-band equaliser let you change the output balance and volume, depending on whether you're in the studio or onstage.
The Roland PD-140DS V-Drums Snare is a digital trigger pad that features Roland's latest technology for expressive drumming. A 3 layer mesh head is fitted to a 14" shell for natural rebound and response. New multi-element sensors capture all the dynamics of your playing, including rim shots and cross sticks, and produce a natural, detailed sound.
The Roland CY-18DR Ride Cymbal provides an authentic and expressive drumming experience. High-resolution sensors detect every nuance of your playing from hard to soft and in every position from edge to bell. It gives you more dynamics than ever before supporting a wide range of expressive techniques including cymbal legato, soft bell stroke and muting - simply touch the bell or bow with a finger or palm to mute the cymbal with natural decay. The CY-18DR features acoustic style 18" dimensions for authentic swing motion and playability so it'll feel comfortable and familiar to any acoustic drummer and your favourite playing techniques are easily transferred.
Please note: kick pedal, snare stand, hi-hat stand and drum throne are not included.
