BECOME A BETTER DRUMMER, FASTER WITH ROLAND TD-17KVX V-DRUMS
Sounds, pads, and features inspired by the toast of Roland’s V-Drums collection position the value-packed TD-17KVX electronic drum kit squarely in pro territory. At the heart of this kit is the TD-17 module, with a sound engine and 50 preset drum kits built around Roland’s flagship TD-50. User-importable drum sounds take advantage of your ever-expanding sound libraries. And wireless Bluetooth support for music and MIDI streamline practice, jamming, and song building. New for the Roland TD-17KVX V-Drums are the 12″ dual-trigger PDX-12 snare pad with two-ply tunable mesh head, floating VH-10 stand-mount hi-hat, and dynamic KD-10 kick tower. A trio of mesh-headed 8″ toms, two 12″ crashes, and Roland’s three-zone 13″ CY-13R ride complete the package.
Roland TD-17 Sound Module
Sounds and FX engine based on Roland’s flagship TD-50
Fifty preset kits and 310 drum/percussion sounds inspired by the V-Drums TD-50 equip the Roland TD-17 sound module for virtually any style, from world music to EDM and metal. User sounds can be imported as WAV files via SD/HC card — a first for a V-Drums module at this level — and saved to any of 50 user kits, as well as blended with stock kits and further edited using the TD-17’s powerful processing and effects engine, which includes virtual tuning and muffling, virtual snare tension, compression, EQ, reverb, and more.
Stream songs and MIDI over Bluetooth
An onboard Bluetooth 4.2 transceiver gives the TD-17 the edge for practice and recording. Stream music from your phone to the module wirelessly, and play along to your heart’s content. When you’re ready to bottle that inspiration, the Roland TD-17 also features MIDI over Bluetooth to send MIDI note values out to a compatible device. Audio/MIDI over USB and a traditional 5-pin MIDI output are also available.
Additional trigger inputs grow with your kit
In addition to accepting the included multi-pin cable harness, the Roland TD-17 module sports two additional 1/4″ dual-trigger inputs for an additional crash and auxiliary pad as your needs grow.
What’s New in the TD-17KVX?
PDX-12 snare pad
The dual-trigger 12″ PDX-12 facilitates lifelike snare performance — realistic buzz rolls and rimshots — without altering the way you play. Its 12″ size makes a smooth transition from kit-sized snares. And its tunable two-ply mesh head lets players tweak how much rebound they prefer, from soft and pillowy to tight and precise. All in all, the Roland TD-17KVX electronic drum kit lets you tailor your snare sound like a boss.
KD-10 kick pad
The tower-style KD-10 features an adaptive playing surface that responds more like an acoustic bass drum head, providing realistic feedback for attack and dynamics. Its redesigned frame greatly reduces physical movement to minimize flexing and scooting. On a rug or carpet, it’s rock solid, with spurs to anchor it in place. The KD-10 accepts single or double pedals, so whatever style of music you’re into, this pad delivers.
Mount this advanced 10″ hi-hat pad to your favorite hi-hat stand (not included) using the included clutch and trigger base, and the VH-10 rewards you with realistic pumps, splashes, and closed-to-open contrast. Its dual-trigger system is able to capture nuances that many other electric drum kits miss. And its textured playing surface reduces acoustic volume to keep practice and performances quiet.
