When electronic drumming was in its infancy, it was treated as a second class citizen by much of the drumming community. "Yeah, it's ok for some things, but it will never replace my acoustic kit," was the prevalent thinking. Well, the technology has come a long way, baby, and many acoustic players are looking at e-drums in a different light. Roland is at the forefront of technological advancement in this area, and their TD12-SV kit has enough playability and feel to change even more minds.
The Snozberries taste like Snozberries!
Timing and feel are crucial for a solid groove, so the drummer has to feel at home when sitting behind the kit. A small circle of rubber mounted in place of the hi-hat, or a cheap plastic foot trigger in place of the kick drum just isn't business as usual. The TD12-SV kit includes a hi-hat trigger that mounts on your favorite hi-hat stand, giving you the right height and familiar pedal-action feel along with open, closed, and semi-closed operation. Close your eyes and you'll swear it's the real deal. Roland's KD85 kick pad accepts any standard bass drum pedal, so your four-on-the-floor beats and funky syncopations are right on time.
Black, White, and Mesh All Over
Every head on this V-Studio kit, kick, snare, and toms, comes complete with Roland's tried-and-true mesh heads. Your sticks rebound more naturally than the aforementioned rubber discs, offering more expressive control over fills, rolls, and ghost notes. The snare and tom pads all offer two-zone triggering, so you can add some rim crack to your tone for hard-hitting Rock grooves or get extra mellow with a sidestick Bossa Nova beat. In addition, you get three CY-12R/C V-Cymbal pads for use as crashes, rides, splashes, and more. These 12-inch cymbal pads are closely matched to traditional acoustic cymbals in shape, weight, and striking surface for a natural swing motion and authentic playing experience. This kit supports three-way cymbal triggering for distinct bow, bell, and edge sounds, plus choke capability for even more realism up top. The TD12-SV includes a tube-style stand with flexible positioning options so you can set your kit up to match your playing style.
Insane in the Brain!
No electronic drum conversation (or kit, for that matter) is complete without the module, or brain as it is sometimes called. The drum brain takes the information coming in from the triggers and translates it into drum sounds. No one knows more about building pro-quality drum brains than Roland, and the TD-12 module is right up there with the best. It's got the same amazing sound quality as the flagship TD-20, with literally hundreds of sounds to choose from. The pros at Roland have mixed and matched may of these sounds into dozens of preset kits, so it's easy to dial in smoky Jazz, bouncy Bop, greasy Funk, blistering Rock, and much, much more. You can easily customize any of these kits, or create your own unique blend, with the powerful V-Editing controls. Change the size, depth and shell material of any of the individual components to subtly tweak or radically alter the sound, and adjust the amount of snare buzz to your liking. Add sizzles or tambourines to your cymbal sounds, totally tricking out your kit for recording sessions or live performance. You can even play with brushes, and this brain will pick up all the nuances of your technique! The Interval Control feature senses your stroke repetition and varies the sound in natural ways for a completely immersive percussion experience. You get a total of twelve input connections (ten for the included pads, plus two more for expansion) to build your dream kit, or several dream kits, and you can call them up with the push of a button.

With the same stunning sound quality as the flagship TD20, the new TD12 drum module provides hundreds of expressive instruments and play-along sequences in a streamlined, affordable package. Many of the sounds in the TD12, from drums to cymbals, are COSM modeled for the ultimate in expression and realism. The module provides the same large, icon-based LCD as its big brother (the TD20), and is housed in a road-tough, metallic black chassis with a friendly array of buttons, controls, and mix sliders. Twelve trigger inputs are provided, plus four audio outputs and MIDI I/O.
Enjoy the dozens of expert-programmed kits in the TD12 -- from authentic acoustic sets to ultra-modern electronic flavors. But the fun doesn't stop there; customize your snare drum, toms, bass drum, and cymbals with the modeling-based V-Editing. Change sizes and materials, attach sizzles to cymbals, increase snare buzz, and more. Then get out your sticks and enjoy! The TD12 supports positional sensing on the snare and ride, as well as on the toms when you play rimshots. The TD12 is also brush compatible, and features the expressive Interval Control feature for the snare and ride/crash/china cymbal, which varies the sound in natural ways based on the speed of stroke repetition.
