Straight off of the PASIC exhibit hall and into your brain – Roland today unveiled the latest incarnation of the company’s revered V-Drum system, and it’s completely unlike anything we’ve ever seen.
We’ll get to all the groovy specs in a minute – the thing that really sets TD-4KP V-Drums Portable apart from other compact electronic drum sets is its unique stand, which folds up into a surprisingly small size for transport and storage. To put the kit back into playing position, the user simply unfolds the stand and pads and proceeds to jam.
Otherwise, the system includes a kick pad, snare pad, three tom pads, three cymbal pads (crash, ride, and hi-hat), and an FD-8 Hi-Hat Controller pedal. The 7.5" snare and tom pads feature a cushioned rubber surface that provides a sensitive, accurate response and natural playing feel.
The included TD-4 Percussion Sound Module delivers a wide range of expressive drum and percussion sounds that can be easily edited, allowing players to quickly customize their kits. Ambience effects optimized for drums are included for lively, dynamic performances. The Coach and Quick Rec/Quick Play functions are ideal for effective practice, providing drummers with valuable feedback for rapid improvement.
Its small footprint makes it ideal for many different environments, including bedrooms, apartments, lesson studios, rehearsal spaces – anyplace where space is at a premium.
