Roland TD-4S V-Compact

Being a drummer ain't no picnic. Sure, you've got legions of adoring fans who never want you to stop rockin', but you've also got neighbors, roommates, various domestic partners. . . all of whom would rather you rock in silence or at select and brief periods. You may think you can just ignore them at first, but it doesn't take that many breakups or official complaints to the local authorities to start cramping your carefree, caution-to-the wind lifestyle. So what's the alternative? Practice pads are good for warm-ups but they're no replacement for a full kit. You may have thought about electronic drums, but then you thought about how much they cost: thousands of dollars for a set that feels anything like a real kit, right? Wrong! Say hello to the Roland TD4S V-Compact Electronic Drum Kit. The world's top professional drummers tour the globe with Roland V-Kits, and now you can grab a piece of that same action. . . for under a thousand bucks!

The TD4S may be one of the most affordable kits in the V series, but they're still V-Drums, and that means they sound and play more like real drums. The fact that they say "Roland" on them means they're are built to last a lifetime. With rugged hardware, a clean look, and the amazing sounds of the new and improved TD4 Drum Module, you might even be inspired to bring your new TD4S V-Compact kit on the road!

TD-4S Lets You Mesh With The Best

The breakthrough that made Roland's V-Drums the most respected name in the game is their mesh V-Pad trigger. The first electronic kits had rubberized triggers that were little more than wired practice pads, making playing on one feel more like drumming on a table top than an instrument. Enter the revolutionary V-Pad with its tension-tunable mesh composite head for an impact response and dynamic sensitivity nearly indistinguishable from a real snare drum. Suddenly, V-Drums were an acceptable, even superior alternative to acoustic kits for professional stage and studio work. The compact, five-piece Roland TD4S kit is built around a mesh V-Pad in the snare position, where nuanced technique and organic feel are the most important. The PXD-8 is a two-zone snare trigger with a 10" diameter and separate head and rim trigger zones. The dual zones for center snare and rim sounds make for more realistic playing, and the generous head diameter make it easier to avoid accidental rim shots (save those for the punch-line, kid). Not only does the mesh snare trigger feel as expressive as a real snare, but it eliminates the fatigue caused by vibration-inducing rubber snare triggers. Practice all night without waking the neighbors or cramping up!

TD4-S Has Swingin' Cymbal Triggers, Do you?

After the snare, the feel of a set's cymbals are of utmost importance, so Roland outfitted the TD4S kit with their fully round, free-swinging CY-8 cymbal triggers. Like the mesh snare pad, the CY-8s feel and react more like the real thing for expressive performance and reliable action. These cymbal triggers are 12" in diameter and swing like real cymbals because they mount like real cymbals. Thrash away at them and you get the satisfaction of a moving instrument that reacts naturally to your playing. The dual-zone design allows for separate top and edge sounds, so all your dynamic accent work is transmitted to the V-Compact's central brain, and then out to your headphones. There's even a smaller CY-5 in the hi-hat position, so all your tasty, Stewart Copeland-inspired hat rolls and dynamics get tracked accurately and expressively.

TD4-S Lets You Play The Field

The most impressive aspect of the Roland TD-4S V-Compact Kit just might be the new Roland TD4 Percussion Sound Module. You may love the sound of your acoustic kit, but the TD4 provides 25 distinct kits assembled from 125 high definition sounds for you to experiment with, all in the comfort of your own home. Curious about the difference in tone between birch and maple shells? The amazing samples in the TD4's sound bank accurately recreate those nuanced tonal flavors. Do you dream of playing in an electro-synth band? We won't tell anyone, but we will tell you about the radical synth-pop, hip-hop and dance kits the TD4 contains as well. Beyond its variety of drum kits, the Roland TD4 module lets you add reverb, EQ and compression to fine tune your sound and make it feel like you're playing in a huge concert hall or a state-of-the art studio. The new, streamlined TD4 interface makes building your own custom kits even easier, with pitch and muffling adjustments as easy as a single twist of a knob. It'll make practice interesting, sure, but it's also like having an warehouse full of kits and an infinite variety of tuned drum isolation rooms for recording. You even get MIDI outs for connecting the set to your DAW and tracking more realistic sounding drum parts than you could ever program.

When you are using your Roland TD-4S for pure rehearsal, be sure to check out the onboard training features, which provide exercises and performance feedback that'll help fine tune your playing in a way that unguided practice can't. Play along in Coach Mode, and the TD4 will tell you whether you're pushing the tempo or falling behind, and at what percentage you're off the beat. Sure, the truth can hurt, but no pain no gain, right? If you just want to hear what the sick new fill or pattern you've come up with sounds like, the Quick Record setting lets you capture the part with one button press, and play it back instantly. The new, central placement of the TD4 module makes accessing its wealth of features on the fly easy without breaking stride.

Simple Set Up And Breakdown Rapidissimo

With the wealth of user-friendly features and great feel, the hardest part about owning a V-Drum set used to be setting them up. Not anymore. The new TD4S features a clever DB-25 connector and cable harness that basically acts as a trigger-wire snake, completely doing away with tangled-cord clutter. Never again have your V-Drum kit compared to a weaver's loom or game of cat's cradle! While more self-contained than ever before, the TD4S still allows for easy expansion. An extra trigger input allows for the addition of a CY-12 ride cymbal trigger, and the CY-5 hi-hat trigger can be swapped out for Roland's top-notch VH-11 V-Hi-Hat triggers, which mount to a real hi-hat stand for performance that's virtually indistinguishable from acoustic hats. The upgraded drum mounting frame is also Roland's most stable for a V-Compact kit yet. Now is when you say "thank you, Roland."

If you thought improving your playing and improving your interpersonal relationships were incompatible goals, you need to introduce a little Roland TD4S V-Compact into your life. You'll practice more, you'll practice more effectively, and you'll be having a blast in the meantime, all without breaking the bank or the local noise ordinance. Your band will love you, your fans will love you, your significant other will continue to love you, and you'll be forever in love with your new Roland V-Drums. The only relationship in jeopardy now is the one between you and your old acoustic kit...

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (22 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "great help for serious drummers"
Sound: stick and beater sound is pretty minimal. the bass drum pad is kooshy rubber rather than the tom style pads which are similar to a gum rubber practice pad. this almost eliminates clicky loud sounds when using nirmal felt beater. snare sounds like tapping a nylon basket and the tom and cymbal pads make medium loud at best tapping sounds. the quality and responsiveness of the onboard sounds are very sweet. wide range of snare sounds with rim sounds all velocity sensive...in some you can hear the pitch change on the rim. tom sounds are nice and cymbal sounds...however few to choose from(only 1 china) are very realistic and open when crashed. this kit did not sound perfect out of the box...i had to turn the sensitivity up on all the pads so they responded better and boosted the volume. double bass and blast beats sound awesome on the fiber kit...this kit has responded perfectly to some gnarley fills i threw at it...this thing is no joke for sure! Feature: took me 2 days to check out MOST of the stuff in here. they don't show you in videos how you can edit sounds of different pads...meaning if i wanted to play a 4-piece with 2 crashes, i can make tom2 my ride which is still velocity/bell sensitive on the tom pad. so for all you 4 piece rockers like me...you can do a 2 crash config with your tom as a ride and no need for an extra cy-8. it also has an extra slot on the qwik connect harness for another pad(cy-8/china) and another input for another pad via 1/4" jack. its "compact" so congiguring is limited...but i mean how big you trying to go with a "compact" kit? Ease of Use: i haven't looked at the manual much and i can do about 75% of the functions...check out the online vids...this things is easy...hit a button...tap a pad...turn the dial...pretty much it! putting it together was easier than a desk from ikea...only the sides of the rack and the pads aren't assembled. easy double kick set up....no rack legs in the way. Quality: Roland is one of the best E-drum company aside from RET. i'm gonna take care of this properly and in doing so i know this will last me many many years. i'm glad i chose this over the alesis dm5pro with Surge. definitely quieter and with better quality sounds! Go Roland! Value: i was comparing this to the alesis kit in the same range and for the extra money you get the rhythm coach and the really awesome quick record function which i use all the time to check out little things i've created...and it really lets you create differnt enviroments with the kit selection and editing! Manufacturer Support: haven't had to deal with them....hopefully never do...only time will tell! The Wow Factor: the 4 leg rack did it for me no more wondering where my double pedal will fit...center mounted console...fits in my tiny room....they def got it right on this one Overall: this is well worth the money being a serious drummer this thing will def help with practice and exercise and even expand with all the different kits and sounds...can't wait to hear my quick records in a couple months from now...now that i can record little snip-its...so cool!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Well worth it..."
Sound: Allows ambient controls and the muffling and tuning features are quick access. Many kit sounds to fit many styles. I had a chance to play the TD-9, TD-12, TD-20, and some yamaha variations all in the same store (Guitar Center- but their prices were high) and liked the roland the best especially for their ability to easily modify sounds. The TD-12 and TD-20 are amazing but response wise the standard TD-9 kit and the TD-4 kit have the same pads and response is the same. Feature: The rhythm coach feature is really nice but took going through the menu to set it for the number of beats per interval. Its a nice way to practice which I really needed since this is my first drum set. I also really like the mixer since each pad can have its volume level set independently. Only draw back is there are no pre-recorded songs, however an ipod can fix that easily with the build-in mix in jack. Ease of Use: This kit is VERY configurable. I had to pull out the manual to see how all the pad sensitivity setting worked like log, exp, and spine. Also the threshold adjustments are nice to have for setting how hard a pad has to be hit for the module to register it as a hit. The only thing about all of these settings is it can take a long to to optimize the drum set if you don't already have a feel for what the set should feel like when optimized.. i.e if you haven't been playing very long like me. Quality: Its Roland so you know its well made. Been playing on it for over a month almost daily and shows a marks on rubber pads but you have to be sitting in front of the pads to really see them. Value: I was looking for a good first drum set that would help me learn and with the ability to play to my own music, practice with rhythm coach, and adjust the volume so I don't bother my wife, this set has been perfect. I played a yamaha and a couple other sets in the same price range and their sound did not seem as realistic. Also, the high hat controller seems much better on the TD-4 kit. Manufacturer Support: So far have not needed any assistance.. I give that a 10. The Wow Factor: The design of the new stand makes this drum set take up very little space compared to an acoustic set. I play an acoustic set at our church and there is very little room around it on the platform since it is near a back wall. When we upgrade I am highly recommending a Roland electric set so we can also feed in the audio to the PA system and have more room. I often wish while playing the acoustic set it was already electric since I can't really open the high-hat at the church without being way too loud. Overall: I expect to keep this set a while and probably upgrade to a 3-way ride and the TD-11 high hat. I would also like to change the snare in the future to one that had the sensor in the center of the pad rather than towards the front rim. My next upgrade after this will probably be the TD-9 with all mesh or the TD-12, but this kit will serve its purpose for a several years.
