Roland's new TD-17 series adds to the legacy of the roland v-drums family, and the roland td-17kv electronic drum set comes in as the mid-level model of the lineup. it boasts quality sounds, great playability and response, easy-to-use features, and rugged reliability. powered by the td-17 drum module, the td-17kv also features a larger pdx-12 dual-trigger mesh snare pad which feels more like an acoustic snare with a shallower rim, natural-feeling pdx-8 dual-trigger mesh tom pads, sensitive and realistic-feeling kd-10 kick trigger, two cy-8 dual trigger cymbal pads, a cy-5 dual trigger hi-hat cymbal pad and the responsive fd-9 hi-hat control pedal.
the td-17kv comes equipped with built in bluetooth for streaming music or midi from a smart device, so you can learn, record tracks or just play along with your favorite songs.
the td-17kv also includes the new kd-10 kick trigger pad; a sturdy, solid kick pad with great dynamic response from delicate playing to thunderous kick patterns. the kd-10 kick trigger pad is compatible with both single and double kick drum pedals.
in addition, the td-17kv comes with the new pdx-12, a 12" dual-ply mesh head pad with outstanding sensitivity and response across the entire drum head surface, providing a great feeling, acoustic-like playing experience. the pdx-12 also recreates rim shots and cross stick techniques with ease.
the td-17 drum sound module features a new set of sounds based on roland’s popular flagship td-50. the module is packed with over 300 quality drums, percussion and effects sounds, and 100 kits to cover any musical style. the td-17 module also includes the ability to import sounds—a first for v-drums kits in this price range. combined with built-in sounds and easy sound editing, creating your own custom sounds and kits are virtually limitless. you can even record your performances and save your playing on a standard sdhc card. in addition to the amazing sounds and customization abilities, the td-17 has a powerful learning tool called coach mode that has several different modes within. this allows you to play along to a metronome, and tells you if you're dragging, speeding up or playing dead on. it even grades your performance with an accuracy percentage.
