At the core of the Roland TD-50KV lies their highly advanced TD-50 sound module. Capture and convey every element of your performance as Prismatic Sound Modeling technology brings your drumming to life. Combined with the newly-developed snare and ride cymbal pads featuring advanced trigger-sensing technology, the TD-50KV offers the most nuanced and expressive playing experience you’ll find in an electronic drum kit.
It’s a Snare Drum, Play it Like One
Gone are the days of adjusting your playing to your electronic pad. The new 14-inch PD-140DS brings expressive snare work to a whole new level for electronic drummers. The comfortable and familiar-sized 14-inch shell surrounds a brand new three-layer mesh head, which provides an authentic feel and bounce. Detecting strokes across the entire pad, Roland’s innovative multi-element sensor system captures nuance in ways previously unattainable from an electronic drum. Sensing your hand movements and adjusting on the fly, even traditional cross stick technique is automatically detected.
True Cymbal-Sized Cymbals
Adding to the acoustic-kit feel of the TD-50KV is the new CY-18DR ride cymbal sporting Roland’s new high-resolution, multi-sensor system. Its full 18-inch size and familiar swinging motion allow you to play without altering your technique. Every stroke from edge to bell is translated with extraordinary dynamics and stunning detail. Close your eyes and you’ll think you’re playing bronze! Stepping up from the TD-50K to the TD-50KV also offers the larger, full-sized, CY-14C and CY-15R cymbal pads with separate sensors for the bell and bow and the familiar “choke” feature.
VH-13 V-Hi-Hat with Natural Hi-Hat Response
Continuing with the ultra-realistic theme of the Roland TD50KV, the two-piece VH-13 hi-hat’s advanced motion sensor and triggering technologies provide authentic response with the familiar open-to-closed motion control. Reacting just like a real hi-hat, the VH-13 responds to foot pressure, altering the tone accordingly.
Customize Your Sound for Live Performance and Studio Sessions
Delivering Roland’s most impressive and wide-ranging array of sounds yet, the onboard selection ranges from the ultra-realistic sounds you’ve come to expect from a V-Drum system to the wildly eclectic. Still, there are times when you’ll want to season to taste. This is where you’ll appreciate the TD50KV’s deep editing features. From basic adjustment of heads and shells or layering of internal and user samples, to the ability to adjust the overhead mics and ambience, balancing and tuning the kit is quick and easy. Each individual pad sports a compressor and three-band EQ, plus there are three independent multi-effect sections available to treat specific drums with 30 different effect types. The outputs have a two-band multi-compressor and four-band equalizer for final polishing of your overall stereo mix.
Practice Your Craft
The Roland TD50KV kit can actually improve your playing and make it easier to learn new material. With its Loop feature and the ability to slow down a track to practice intricate passages, developing your technique has never been easier. You can use the Quiet Count function or get inspired as you play with backing tracks via the SD card slot or external audio input. The TD50KV can record your playing at 48 kHz, 96 kHz, and the standard 44.1kHz and output the performance to your favorite DAW.
Sure, it sounds great to you on stage — but does that translate to the front-of-house PA or your studio engineer? The first V-Drums module to feature an XLR stereo master output to preserve signal integrity across long runs, the TD-50 also provides eight TRS 1/4” direct outs that can be assigned to any pad for maximum flexibility in both live performance and recording environments.
Compact, Flexible, Stable MDS-50KV Stand
The MDS-50KV chrome rack stand was designed specifically for the Roland TD-50KV and offers all the features you’ll need to complement their flagship kit. Compact and flexible, the MDS-50KV incorporates highly-adjustable pad/cymbal arms that facilitate a comfortable setup, even in tight spaces. Trigger cables flow inside the stand, allowing for faster assembly and avoiding wiring tangles. Your kit will be rock solid on stage too, thanks to its all-metal hinged clamps, improved stability design, and high-grip rubber feet.
