With the TD-25KVX, serious drummers can tap into high-end V-Drums playability in a mid-level kit, with the strong visual presence and feel to make every player feel at home. Equipped with a sound engine derived from the TD-30 V-Drums series, the TD-25KVX 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 a large 12-inch dual-mesh snare pad with positional sensing, which fits to a regular snare drum stand for flexible positioning, 10-inch mesh-head pads for toms, delivering a more-natural playing feel and VH-11 V-Hi-Hat for playing with authentic hi-hat techniques. The KD-180 Bass Drum features an 18-inch genuine acoustic shell with built-in pad system, which delivers incredible acoustic feel and distinctive ‘acoustic kit’ looks.
The TD-25KVX delivers a superior drumming experience, thanks to Roland’s SuperNATURAL technology with Behavior Modeling inherited from the TD-30 module. 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.
When you sit down at the TD-25KVX, you’ll enjoy expressive playability that rivals high-end V-Drums sets. The 12-inch PD-128S-BC snare pad and three 10-inch PDX-100 tom pads will make acoustic drummers feel at home and provide great playing feel. There’s a full complement of Roland’s 2-ply mesh-head pads for that legendary V-Drums feel, with positional sensing on the snare pad that provides subtle, organic tonal 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.
With its no-nonsense interface, the TD-25KVX’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.
The TD-25KVX 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. Handy shortcuts greatly speed up tom editing, allowing you to assign sounds and change the muffling and tuning for all the toms at once. Your changes are saved automatically as you edit, eliminating the need to fuss with extra steps. If you don’t like your most recent tweaks, you can easily undo them and return to where the kit was at when you first selected it.
