This kit includes the Roland V-Drums TD-50 Module. The new Prismatic Sound Modeling technology conveys every element of your performance in thrilling detail. Combined 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-50KVX utilises a special electrostatic capacitance touch system on 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. 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 the sound accordingly for the most authentic 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-50KVX includes onboard kits to suit every session. The advanced module supports deep sound customisation, including basic adjustment of the heads and shells, laying of internal and user samples, and adjustment of overhead mics and ambience control. For a 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 Roland PD-140DS V-Drums Snare 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 TD-50KVX includes some of the best cymbals Roland has to offer. 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 in every position from the edge to the bell. This gives you more dynamics than ever before, supporting a wide range of expressive techniques including cymbal legato, soft bell stroke and muting.
The TD-50KVX features a newly introduced range of bass drums to the V-Drum series. The KD-220 Bass Drum provides the stage presence and familiar feel of a full size bass drum to the TD-50KVX. The drum is an all maple 8-ply acoustic bass drum with Roland's advanced kick trigger electronics preinstalled. Roland's innovative air-damper mechanics work alongside the 22'' acoustic shell to move air and provide resistance as the beater hits the head, providing stable, accurate triggering with an authentic, acoustic feel. The KD-220 can accommodate single and double bass pedals, and combines the powerful appearance and presence of an acoustic bass drum with the advanced electronic triggering from the V-Drum series.
