Authentic Playing Feel
Roland have designed the pads of the Roland TD-17KVX electronic drum kit to give you an incredibly authentic playing feel. So, if you’re used to playing acoustic drums, you can carry on playing with the TD-17KVX the way you want to play, without compromising or changing your technique.
Also, since the TD-17 drum sound module is so advanced, you can play these pads however you want with every sound being faithfully reproduced with ultra-fast response time.
Because on many electronic drum kits you have to hit the centre of the pad, the pads tend to be a lot smaller and if you’re used to playing with a 14” snare and have to make the move to an 8” pad, it just isn’t going to feel right.
However, with the TD-17KVX, you get a 12” dual-mesh PDX-12 snare pad which is tension adjustable, giving you satisfying and incredibly authentic rebound. The height of the snare hoop is also closer to what you’d find on an acoustic snare so you can easily hit an open rim shot with a natural stick angle.
The TD-17KVX also comes with a VH-10 V-Hi-Hat which has a single-cymbal floating design that can be mounted and played with a traditional acoustic hi-hat stand.
The VH-10 gives you the same playing feel you get from a real acoustic hi-hat with that great rebound feel and natural swinging motion you get with the hi-hat cymbal
It also boasts open/closed motion and bow/edge sounds so you can perform all the traditional playing techniques that you’re used to.
Another important part of the Roland TD-17KVX electronic drum kit is the KD-10 kick pad. Designed to absorb a lot of noise with its rubber cover and dedicated cushion, you can play as hard as you like while making minimal sound.
Even better; the KD-10 still offers you that satisfying, thudding kick drum feel when the beater hits the bass drum head.
On top of all this, the TD-17KVX also comes with three PDX-8 toms, two CY-12C crash cymbals and a CY-13R ride cymbal, so you get the full acoustic drum kit experience but in a compact, highly portable electronic drum kit.
What’s more; the position and angle of each pad is fully adjustable so you can customise the TD-17KVX to your perfect setup.
Amazingly Realistic Sound
Using Roland’s proprietary Prismatic Sound Modelling technology which it has inherited from the flagship TD-50 sound module, the Roland TD-17 sound engine delivers incredibly authentic drum sounds.
While playing, you’ll notice a huge dynamic range with awesome tonal changes depending on where you hit the pads and how hard you strike them.
All your playing techniques from rim shots, rolls, flams and ghosts notes on the snare to full-on crash hits, extended cymbal swells along with half-open position on the hi-hats and even more sounds for the bow and edge, will be picked up by the TD-17 with incredible detail.
Find the Perfect Kit Sound for Your Style
When preparing for a live show, it’s important to know what you’re going to sound like on the day. The Roland TD-17 drum sound module is packed with a huge range of expressive modelled drum sounds inherited from Roland’s flagship TD-50 module. With this great range of sounds you can find the perfect drum sound for your gig.
You can even choose from 50 premium quality drumkits to suit a range of different scenarios and genres. You can choose “Acoustic for warm, wooden vibes, “Compact” for the sound of a smaller stage or go to the other extreme and choose “Arena Stage”.
Selecting the “Studio” kit sound gives you incredible clarity which is perfect for recording, or you can go the route of more genre specific kits such as “Fat Rock” and “Speed Metal”. Whatever you’re looking for – you can be sure that the Roland TD-17 will have something to match your style.
Another great way you can prepare for your next gig is by creating the ambience of the venue just by using the TD-17 module.
Using the onboard reverb and ambience settings of the TD-17, you can hear exactly what you’re going to sound like in all types of venues – all without having to leave your house.
Create Your Own Custom Kit
You can, however, completely customise your kit sound. Modern professional drummers like to craft signature drum sounds by layering multiple elements.
Using the TD-17 you can create your own signature kit, layering multiple sounds and editing them using the onboard pitch control, EQ, effects and more.
Sometimes you hear an awesome kit sound on one of your favourite records or you’re doing a cover of a song and want to get the drum sound exactly right and with the Roland TD-17 module you can do just that.
Samples can be imported via SD card so you can trigger original single-shot drum samples for each individual part of the kit.
You can also try something completely different like triggering entire audio phrases, sequences and vocal samples.
Better still; the samples you import can be mixed and layered with the TD-17’s built-in sounds giving you the ability to create an awesome, powerful drum sound and match pretty much any drum sound you want.
Built-In Training Features
Whether you’re just getting grips to keeping a rhythm or you’re a veteran drummer and you want to refine your technique, the TD-17 module has a number of built-in training features to help you along the way.
Using the Roland TD-17 drum module’s Coach Mode you get the perfect support for your daily training.
From warm ups to tempo and timing – and even stamina development, the TD-17 keeps you motivated, tracks your progress and gives you a score so you can see exactly how well you’re coming on.
With Time Check mode, you can improve your accuracy while playing on with a click track. You get a percentage score for your accuracy and the TD-17 even tells you whether your pad strikes were before, ahead or on the beat.
You can take your timing to the next level by switching over to Quiet Count mode. The perfect way to develop and refine your internal sense of timing and tempo, the TD-17 will give you a click track for the first few bars before cutting out.
You continue to play during the silent bars with the aim of staying in time for when the click track returns. The more you use this mode, the better your “internal metronome” will become.
Then there’s WarmUp mode which makes sure your daily drum practice sessions are more fun and motivational. You can choose either a five, ten or fifteen minute session with a range of difficulty settings and select a tempo.
You will then be provided with a range of different exercises for working on rhythm type changes, tempo changes and playing accuracy.
When the WarmUp session is over you are given a grade and the motivation to improve on this grade during your next session.
Play Along with Your Favourite Music Via Wireless Bluetooth Streaming!
If you want to take a break from drumming solo, how about playing along with your favourite bands?
Play along to your favourite tunes, rehearse covers you’ll be doing on stage or practice along with recordings of your own band – all with the convenience of Bluetooth audio.
Using your Bluetooth enabled media player, such as your smartphone, you can stream songs to the TD-17 drum module and play along, listening to the entire performance through your head phones.
It’s not always convenient or possible to get your whole band together for rehearsals but you can carry on playing along with the band by playing your recordings from your smart phone. When you and the band get together for rehearsals or the next big gig, you’ll be more than prepared.
Furthermore; you can record all your playing and listen back to it so you can review your performance and decide if there’s anything that needs improving.
