Thanks to its incredible SuperNATURAL sound engine, the Roland TD-25KV V-Tour e-drum kit delivers sound so detailed you'd swear it was an acoustic kit.
With the Roland TD-25KV, serious drummers can tap into high-end V-Drums playability in a mid-level kit for home and studio. Equipped with a sound engine derived from the flagship TD-30, the TD-25KV delivers all the acclaimed expressiveness that makes Roland's top-line V-Drums the undisputed choice of pro players everywhere. A streamlined interface makes it easy to create personalized kits, while the built-in audio recording function lets you capture drum performances for evaluation and sharing. Other premium features include mesh-head pads for a natural feel, positional snare sensing for enhanced expression, and the VH-11 V-Hi-Hat for playing with authentic hi-hat techniques.

Unrivaled Sound and Expressiveness

The TD-25KV delivers a superior drumming experience, thanks to Roland's SuperNATURAL technology with Behavior Modeling inherited from the flagship TD-30. The sound engine responds naturally and organically to your playing in every way, providing the dynamic, interactive feel that's essential for reaching the highest levels of musical expression. From rim shots, rolls, flams, and ghost notes on the snare to dramatic crash hits and sustained cymbal swells, every nuance is detailed, accurate, and ultra-smooth.

High-End Feel and Playability

When you sit down at the TD-25KV, you'll enjoy expressive playability that rivals high-end V-Drums sets. There's a full complement of mesh-head pads for the legendary V-Drums feel, with positional sensing on the snare pad that provides subtle, organic tonal read more changes depending on where the pad is struck. The cymbals have a natural swinging motion and support chokes, bow/edge sounds on crashes, and bow/edge/bell sounds on the ride. Mounting on a standard hi-hat stand, the VH-11 V-Hi-Hat features open/closed motion and bow/edge sounds for executing traditional playing techniques to perfection. Last but not least is the KD-9 Kick Pad, which offers a natural-feel cloth head and rock-solid response.

Call Up Kits and Start Playing Immediately

With its no-nonsense interface, the TD-25KV's sound module lets you enjoy playing great sounds for any music right away. Easy to grab while holding sticks, the large center dial allows you to quickly select kits based on music styles such as standard, rock, jazz, electronic, and others. After you've selected a style, press the dial to toggle between different kit variations. Next step? Start playing!

Customize Kits for Your Personal Style

The TD-25KV makes it simple to edit sounds to suit your playing touch or a specific style of music. Just hit a pad to call up the sound assigned to it, and then use the module's knobs to select instruments and tweak tuning, muffling, and levels.

"Great Kit!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this kit to use both for practice and studio, but also to use live in my rock cover band. The kit arrives in two boxes, one for the rack and the other for everything else. It's pretty simple to set up. It takes a little while to get it just right though. The pads feel great! They are very responsive and realistic. It is really a joy to play! The module is very easy to navigate. Roland made it very easy to customize a kit just the way YOU want it to sound. The factory kits are pretty good. Some I really like and some not so much, but there is something for everyone I think. Just find one that is close to what you want, then customize it to get that perfect sound! I haven't used any of the training tools yet but they seem like they would be helpful. The ability to play along with a song is great! Plus you can select a section of song and loop it or slow it down until you can play it perfect! It is pretty quiet, with headphones I can play it in another room and my wife doesn't get disturbed and that's always a good thing!I like the rack. It folds together very compactly for easy transport. Then unfolds very quickly for reassembly. Great for live gigs.Here are the downsides I have found so far. It only has a mono or stereo out. (It also has midi but I haven't used that yet). So using it live could be a challenge. I have used it for a few live gigs so far and it was ok, but you really have to have the kit dialed in perfect from the start because the sound man has only volume control of read more the whole kit. He can't just turn up the kick or the snare. That could be a problem.Next issue, It seems to be a little particular about what brand thumb drive you use. I had one and it worked fine for saving different kits but it would stop recognizing the thumb drive when I tried to record. I used a different one and I haven't had a problem with it. So far I have used it for just a few live gigs and it has been great. I would definitely recommend this kit to both the new player and seasoned veteran like myself. Oh I almost forgot the great Zzounds payment plan! That's what made this purchase possible! Buy one on the payment plan!
