zZounds Expert Review

If you've had any experience with electronic drums at all, you've no doubt heard of Roland. Their formula for becoming the leading manufacturer of electronic kits: give drummers what they want. Ever the innovators, Roland build e-drum kits with realistic sounds, natural playing feel, and intuitive interfaces.


One of the best examples of Roland's dominance in the electronic drum field is the TD-9SX kit. It's got sound and playability advanced drummers can appreciate, but without all the complicated bells and whistles that would send most newbies running for cover. If you're looking for an all-around kit, this is it.


What's In The Box

All 5 drum pads on the TD-9SX have mesh heads with tunable tension. For example, you can set it tight on the snare for more snap, or a little looser on the floor tom for some extra play in the response. Mesh heads are designed to feel more like a real acoustic head than the rubber pads found on lesser kits. I'm not sure they're there yet, but they are more comfortable than rubber, and can help reduce fatigue when playing for long stretches. The TD-9SX comes with a dual-zone snare pad, three dual-zone tom pads, and a kick drum pad.


The dual-zone pads give you an authentic vibe, with separate triggers for the main head and the rim. You can set up cross sticks on the snare and add some extra crack to the toms, for example. Many of the kits in the TD-9 module are already set up to take advantage of the extra zones. That said, I found it difficult to get a consistent rim sound, because the triggers are velocity sensitive. The TD-9 User Guide mentions altering your technique a bit to achieve a steady sound, though I didn't spend enough time working at it to prove it out.


The TD-9SX also includes some multi-trigger cymbal pads to round out the kit. You get a dual-zone crash, a dual-zone hi-hat with open/close foot pedal, and a triple-trigger ride. The dual-zone cymbals let you get separate sounds for the bow and the edge, and the ride adds a third tone for the bell. Though they're plastic, they do have enough heft to feel real(ish), and you can grab the edge for a choke effect with also improves the experience.

In general, all the drum and cymbal pads are responsive and lively, with plenty of dynamic range due to the velocity sensitivity.


Pretty much all the hardware you need is included. You get the four-leg V-Tour rack, which is more stable than the racks used on the lower-end kits, plus mounts for the tom/snare pads, three cymbal booms, all the necessary cabling, and, of course, the TD-9 module (with mount). Add a kick pedal (the kick pad is large enough to handle single or double), a throne, and a pair of sticks, and you're all set to bang. The hardware isn't as beefy as what you typically find on an acoustic kit, but I did like the flexible positioning options for both the drum and cymbal pads.


The TD-9 Module

The TD-9 is a bit of a departure from other Roland drum brains, with more of a vertical layout and a large, easy-to-read display. Like the best Roland kits, the TD-9 is loaded with a ton of sounds. You get a total of 522 percussion sounds, from modern and vintage acoustic drums and cymbals to old-school electronic tones (including the legendary Roland TR-808 and TR-909), along with some fun percussion and sound effects patches. There are plenty of everyday-useable sounds, with plenty of oddball extras to keep you experimenting.


The sounds are broken down into 50 different kits, letting you dial up a collection of complementary sounds quickly and easily. I particularly enjoyed the Acoustic kit, the V-Tour kit, and the Double Bass kit, which turns the high-hat control pedal into a second kick pedal. The Brush Kit is also nice for Jazz. Kits are completely editable, with the option to store your own user created kits.


The module also includes 50 backing tracks to add some context to your practice sessions. The tracks are created from actual recorded sounds instead of lame synth simulations, so you feel like you're sitting in with a tight band. These backing tracks represent several different musical styles, so it's a great way to experiment with different genres. The backing tracks include drum parts so you can try to cop the style, or you can mute the drum parts and add your own flavor. You can also hook up your CD/MP3 player through the Aux input for more jam-along options.


If you come up with something particularly cool, the TD-9 features a Quick Record button. There's no complicated setup required, just press the button and lay down the groove. You can use Quick Record with or without the onboard metronome. Record yourself jamming with the backing tracks, or playing solo.


The TD-9's interface looks a bit more stripped down than some of Roland's other brains, but all of the go-to functions are accessible with no menu-diving. You do have to dig deep for some of the editing parameters, but it wasn't too terrible.

On the top of the TD-9, there's a USB port for thumb drive connection. From here, you can save Quick Record performances and User-edited kits.


The Skinny

Overall, I was impressed with the TD-9SX. The layout was well designed, and both the rack and the pads look sturdy enough for gigging. The module was very easy to navigate, and while it lacked some advanced features such as individual pad output channels or onboard sampling, it was totally useable as a straight-ahead drum kit. I could easily see this thing set up in a practice space, as a part of a church band, or even in a small recording studio. You'll definitely want to pick up some headphones or some sort of external e-drum amplifier to hear the output, though.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. Roland TD-9SX V-Tour Kit Customer Review
Sound: I agree with the other users complaints although there is a work around. First I bought 2 of the Roland KD-7 vertical drum pedals. The second one hooks to the other through the input so you can have double bass drum pedal sounds without the problems of hitting the center of the one that comes with the kit. This kit allows you to sort of play double bass drum pedals via the high hat but it's just not the same thing. For one of the problems I saw first was the weak sound it has. Trust me, it's worth the extra money to buy the reverse beater pedals. As for the rest of the kit, it's awesome. I upgraded from Simmons SD-9K kit to this one and it was hands down the best thing I bought. If there is one pet peeve (not many here) it should have come with an extra cymbal other then that it would of been 10 stars. Right out of the box I was playing in 30 minutes. The sound module is great and I love the cable snake and how it works. I would recommend this kit to all who wants to buy it.

"great product"
Sound: I suggest that you demo one of these if youre unshure about buying one. i play mine through a berringer keyboard monitor, and its great. Feature: almost every parameter you can think of in order to change the sensitivity, the tone, and volume of each individual pad is available. Ease of Use: amazingly easy to use. i thought that i was going to be dumbfounded by all the available features, however, the quick start guide was enough to get me going at first. Quality: great quality. i beat up on this thing almost every day, and for the last seven months they have been nothing short of strong and dependable. Value: this is the area that i frown on the most. it is an incredibly large commitment to spend this much on a drum set, however, you would never get the variety and versatility of this product with other aucoustic pieces for the same price. Manufacturer Support: i havent needed any type of customer service as of yet. The Wow Factor: very sexy :) Overall: i am very pleased with this product and its always easier to point out flaws than to say what you like about the product. that being said, i wish i would have known how bad the kick pad is, especially for doublebass. i got so frustriated with the thing that i only go single bass, so the beater would hit the sensor directly in the middle. there is one thing to point out, even if you crank the sensitivity up on the kickpad via the module, double bass will still never sound as good as hitting the same pad with the single bass. i am currently in the process of getting their kd12 to replace it and atart playing double bass again. i also want to get something else for the hi-hat, not that its bad, i just need something more realistic. other than that, i really love this thing and i also want to add one more "cymbal" and "floor tom."
Style of Music: i have a very eclectic taste in music
