ROLAND TD-1KV V-DRUMS
INCLUDES MESH-HEAD PDX8 SNARE PAD
The Roland TD-1KV is a compact, stylish and affordably priced addition to Roland's V-Drums electronic drum kit range. Roland's V-Drums are the world's most popular electronic drums for one reason: they're the best. Blending superior sound, authentic feel, and rugged durability, each kit in the V-Drums lineup performs at the highest level, a testament to more than three decades of developing electronic drums. The compact TD-1KV is no exception, delivering respected V-Drums quality in a space-saving kit that keeps up with you as your playing evolves.
Ideal for everyone that wants to enjoy drums at home, the TD-1KV offers a wide selection of expressive drum kits for playing any musical style, plus fun onboard training and recording functions for building your skills and checking your progress. And as a Roland TD-1KV owner, you're not just starting an exciting musical journey - you're also joining the V-Drums family, a group of discerning players that includes the world's finest drummers and percussionists.
15 DRUM KITS FOR PLAYING ANY STYLE OF MUSIC
An acoustic drum kit needs to be set up to play a specific style of music, so you're stuck with one type of sound. But that's not the case with the TD-1KV - it includes 15 quality drum kits on board, so you can play any kind of music you want at the touch of a button, from rock and blues to jazz, world music, EDM, and beyond. At one practice session, you can rock hard with a heavy bottom-end sound, then instantly change kits to recreate the sound of your favourite band. Every kit reacts just like the acoustic and electronic kits they emulate, giving you a huge range of variety in one compact, standalone instrument.
DEVELOP AUTHENTIC TECHNIQUES WITH RESPONSIVE PADS AND CYMBALS
Some drummers avoid electronic drums; worried they won't play like their acoustic counterparts. There's no need for concern with the Roland TD-1KV - it fully supports essential acoustic playing techniques, which is especially important for beginners to learn to play correctly. Every drum sound offers a wide dynamic range and natural tone, and the pads provide a full range of natural expression. Unlike typical entry-level sets, the TD-1KV's cymbals include the advanced expressiveness found in all TD-series V-Drums modules, including bow and edge sounds and support for cymbal chokes. The hi-hat reacts to the nuances of your footwork, bringing personality and character to your playing. Great drumming is all about feel, and so is the TD-1KV.
STAY MOTIVATED WITH ONBOARD TRAINING FUNCTIONS THAT MAKE LEARNING FUN
Built right into the TD-1KV is a wealth of enjoyable functions to encourage learning, no matter whether you're teaching yourself to play, studying regularly with an instructor, or simply want to keep your skills polished. Think of this kit as your own live-in drum teacher and personal backing band, packed with tutorial features that develop technique, boost motivation, and help you get the most out of practice time. Play along with the onboard metronome to tighten your timing, and use Coach mode to build and maintain speed, stamina, and accuracy. Get ready for your first band by jamming with the internal songs in the sound module, or connect a smartphone or music player via the Mix In jack and drum along with your favourite tunes. With the onboard recording function, you'll get instant feedback of your progress as well as quickly capture and playback a new fill or creative groove.
PRACTICE AT HOME WITH HEADPHONES AND ULTRA-QUIET, BEATER-FREE KICK DRUM
Traditional acoustic drums are extremely loud. Playing them at home is fun for you, but can be a problem for everyone else around! Quieter operation is a major benefit of electronic drums, and the Roland TD-1KV is particularly quiet where it counts, thanks to the sound module's headphone jack and the noise-reducing design of the snare, tom, and cymbal pads. While many electronic drum kits annoy the neighbours as the beater strikes the kick drum, the TD-1KV reduces volume with a special beater-less pedal design. Optional NE-10 Noise Eater units can be used under the kick and hi-hat pedals to further reduce noise transfer to other rooms below.
FITS IN YOUR PRACTICE SPACE AND ADJUSTS TO YOUR PLAYING STYLE
Inviting a supersize acoustic drum kit into your home is a big deal. Do you lose the spare room upstairs, or try and cram it into your living room? The space-saving TD-1KV is a far more practical choice, fitting into the tightest living spaces with a stylish, modern look that lets life carry on around it. For added functionality, the sturdy, ergonomic drum rack is easily adjustable, allowing the drum positions to be set up for everyone from children to adults. In addition, the height of each cymbal and the angle of the snare pad can also be fine-tuned for your comfort and playing style. The TD-1KV is perfect for students, but it's also a great choice for an experienced drummer who needs a kit for home practicing or backstage warm-up.
A DRUM SET THAT EVOLVES WITH YOUR PLAYING
As your playing takes off, you don't want your drum kit to hold you back. The Roland TD-1KV can grow with you, thanks to a range of optional extras. You can add an extra cymbal with the additional OP-TD1C Cymbal Pad, or swap out the standard kick pedal for the KT-10 or KD-9 models used in Roland's more advanced V-Drums. With other accessories including the NE-10 Noise Eater, TDM-3 V-Drums Mat, and PM-03 Personal Drum Monitor, the TD-1KV is an electronic kit that will go the distance.
RECORD ON YOUR COMPUTER USING ONE STANDARD USB CABLE
The TD-1KV is not just fun to play by itself - it's also a great way to make music with your computer. Included is a built-in USB-MIDI interface, making it simple to communicate with music software via just a USB cable, with no extra hardware needed. Maybe you'll transfer your playing into your computer-based recording software, capturing a live drum feel in your latest masterpiece. Or perhaps you'll use Roland's free V-Drums Friend Jam series applications, which offer jam tracks, practice features, and the ability to compete with V-Drums users across the planet. For more in-depth education, the powerful DT-1 V-Drums Tutor provides a fun, dynamic platform for learning notation and essential drum techniques. Whatever application you chose, the TD-1KV is a drum kit that lets you go places.
SIMPLE OPERATION LETS YOU START ROCKING IN MINUTES
If you think that electronic drums are complicated, think again - using the TD-1KV is as simple as it gets. With its clear layout, the control panel lets you access all functions quickly and easily, and you can see info at a glance with the LED display and the metronome's flashing tempo indicator.

ROLAND TD-1K & TD-1KV V-DRUMS
Starting out as a beginner in the world of drumming can be quite a daunting task. Grasping the basics of playing can be just as difficult as finding a means of practicing your playing, at an affordable price. With many different options available to the beginner drummer ranging from acoustic to electronic kits at the forefront, finding something suitable can prove unnerving unless you know what to look for.
With acoustic kits offering little to no versatility, taking up much more room and being extremely loud, this may not be the best route for beginners [or anyone you live with for that matter]. Roland however, have now introduced two brand new introductory level electronic drum kits that offer a compact and lightweight design, perfectly suited to beginners and veterans alike that can fit into any small space without compromising on your playing style, or personal set-up. Both of these kits also offer built-in functions that are extremely beneficial to drummers of all abilities.SLEEK, MINIMAL DESIGN
The Roland TD-1K and TD-1KV V-Drums immediately present you with a sleek, minimal design consisting of an easy-to-assemble frame with four 7.5" rubber pads (upgraded mesh snare on the TD-1KV), three of Roland's 10" CY-5 dual-trigger cymbal pads; and two brushed aluminium look pedals for the Hi-Hats and Bass Drum; offering one of the best entry level V-Drum kits that Roland have ever made, and by far one of the most elite electronic kits in the entire market.
Both the Roland TD-1K and TD-1KV come supplied with an extremely easy-to-use module, that includes 15 different types of kit set-ups, ranging from Rock to Jazz, to House and even a Percussion patch.
The module on both of these kits also has a built-in metronome that allows players to practice their time keeping along with the ability to record, and playback your own performances. An extremely useful tool for drummers of all abilities!
As well as the built-in metronome, both kits in the TD-1 range include 15 pre-recorded song of varying styles and tempos that allow you to practice and broaden your playing standards.
A new addition to Roland's products include their downloadable app - Friend Jam - which allows any V-Drums owner to connect their kit to their computer or iPhone/iPad via USB. Friend Jam offers further practice songs in addition to those on the module, and a community for all V-Drummers to share their workouts and compete with others all over the world. This app works hand-in-hand with the modules coach function, in allowing players to work on unique exercises that are designed to help improve speed, accuracy and time-keeping.
With the TD-1 range predominantly aimed towards beginner drummers, the module offers minimal I/O options for ease of use. All cables for each individual pad are clearly labelled for quick, easy set-up with one connection on the reverse end that plugs into the back of the module.
As with all Roland V-Drums, the TD-1K and TD-1KV allow the use of headphones via a 3.5mm socket, which allows for quiet, personal practice further lowering the volume issues associated with playing the drums. The headphone socket also doubles up as a main output for connecting your TD-1 to an external speaker or PA system. Roland offer a 2.1 stand-alone speaker (PM-03) which presents a slim and stylish, stereo speaker with a clean, clear tone and plenty of low-end frequency coverage with adjustability.
Both kits in the TD-1 range also include the option to "Mix-In" external audio devices such as an iPod or computer so that you can play along to your favourite songs or any other audio material.
Finally, a USB I/O is included so that either of the TD-1 kits can be connected to a computer or iPhone/iPad to make use of Roland's Friend Jam app as mentioned earlier; or any current DAW with alternative plug-ins such as Native Instruments, EZ Drummer or GarageBand.
Both of the electronic kits in Roland's TD-1 range offer fantastic sounds that are expressive, responsive and realistic. The 15 different drum set patches that are built-in to the module present you with a variety of unique drum sounds that are common to their respective styles and genres.
The built-in patches are a great in allowing the knowledge of different sounds to be broadened and understood by the beginner drummer. Sampling quality as with all Roland products is second to none. The overall quality and playability of the sounds on the TD-1K and TD-1KV compared with other V-Drums in the range do show their true colours in the price tag attached to each kit. The response of the samples in the TD-1 kits are some-what less "natural" than that found on the opposite end of the spectrum in the TD-30 range. This however, does come with an extreme increase in price, which is why at the price both the TD-1K and TD-1KV are offered at, it's extremely hard to complain.
These differences are something that would only really be noticeable to any intermediate or professional drummers looking at the TD-1 range, which is something to strongly consider if you are buying from that level of playing. For any beginner, either of these V-Drums stands as an excellent starting point with a wide range of functions suited to varying learning and playing applications. Perfect for establishing a strong start on your journey as a drummer.
