Possessing SuperNATURAL technology with Behavior Modeling inherited from Roland’s powerful TD-30, the TD-25KV’s components perform intuitively and naturally, allowing the player to concentrate on performance. Ghost notes and flams are translated seamlessly, as are crash hits and cymbal swells. You can even “choke” the crash cymbals.
Refined Feel and Playability
Evocative of Roland’s prestigious high-end V-Drums kits, the TD-25KV’s presents top-shelf sounds and realistic playing experience rarely attainable in a mid-priced kit, thanks to features like mesh heads on every drum pad. The PDX-100 10-inch mesh-head snare pad (with support for positional sensing and rim shot/cross stick playing) provides every stroke with unique sound and dynamics, while two PD-85BK 8-inch pads serve as rack toms and another PDX-100 10-inch pad handles floor tom duties. Additionally, the KD-9 Kick Pad with mesh head provides a natural kick drum response.
Offering the motion and action associated with traditional hi-hats, the VH-11 V-Hi-Hat mounts on a standard acoustic hi-hat stand. Its “Floating” design uses fewer components for quieter performance and, if you close your eyes, you’ll think you’re playing an actual pair of bronze hi-hats. The TD-25KV kit utilizes two CY-12C 12-inch crash cymbals with natural swinging motion, edge/bow sensors, and choke control. There’s also a CY-13R 13-inch ride cymbal with natural swinging motion and edge/bow/bell triggering.
Have a Seat, Hit the Groove
Packed with a wide range of great sounds, the Roland TD25KV’s elegant interface provides direct access to a wide variety of superb preset kits. Reach for the big center dial to call up variations of standard, rock, jazz, electronic, and “others” kits - all with impressive, usable sounds.
Make it All About You
You know what you like. You know what you need. The TD25KV makes creating and fine-tuning your own kits fast and easy. You can adjust tuning, muffling, and levels for all toms at once, compliments of handy shortcuts that accelerate the process. And to make the entire editing process worry-free, your changes are automatically saved with the ability to “Undo.”
Practice For the Professional
The Roland TD25KV is the working musicians dream. Learning and rehearsing songs has never been easier. Just insert a USB memory stick with WAV or MP3 files and dig in. Loop the whole song or just specific sections or even slow down the playback for zeroing in on difficult segments. Use the external input to play back audio from your phone or tablet for even more library options.
The TD25KV’s recording function provides the ability to record your performance for future evaluation; or export it to your favorite DAW software and lend world-class drum sounds to your recordings.
The Roland MDS-9SC stand - Great Looks and Stability
The TD25KV V-Tour kit includes Roland’s MDS-9SC heavy-duty, yet lightweight stand. The MDS-9SC is ideal for electronic drum kits utilizing three cymbal pads, as Roland has added an extra cymbal arm to their MDS-9V stand. With ball clamps on the cymbal arms and curved horizontal pipes, your drum rig will be completely ergonomic, as well as quick and easy to set up. The MDS-9SC is finished in flat black for a durable, unobtrusive appearance.
