Responsive Pads and Cymbals
Sometimes drummers worry that electronic kits don’t feel like acoustic kits and that this can prevent them from learning essential acoustic playing techniques. With this Roland V-Drums kit, there is no need to worry. Featuring naturally expressive pads, the TD1KV electronic drum kit has been specially developed to ensure drummers can still learn the essential skills they would on an acoustic kit. This is especially important for beginners as it’s imperative they start on the right path. Each drum sound built into the kit has a wide dynamic range and natural tone to help create an expressive acoustic-like playing feel.
The Roland TD1KV features a PDX-8 mesh head snare pad that provides authentic feel with independent head and rim triggering. This nifty feature offers a much more realistic response from the head for a feel much closer to an acoustic kit. It even has tension rods around the edges of the head allowing you to "tune" it to get the feel and response you want. The independent rim triggering allows for realistic playing features too, like cross sticks and rim shots.
Furthermore, unlike most entry-level drum kits, this electric kit also features advanced expressiveness features that are found in all TD-series modules. From bow and edge sounds to the ability to choke cymbals just as you would with an acoustic cymbal, this kit has a real feel. The hi-hat is also designed to react to the nuances of the drummer’s footwork for a realistic, great playing feel. Start the right way with the Roland TD1KV by building the same skills you would on an acoustic kit.
Onboard Coach Function
Whether you have a regular drum tutor, are teaching yourself how to play or simply want to keep your skill polished, the Roland TD-1KV has you covered. This V drums kit is packed with tutorial features that help drummers to develop technique, boost motivation and get the most out of their practice time. The onboard coach function includes 10 different fun, skill-checking features that help to improve timing, groove and beat playing. Things like the ‘Quiet Count’ setting lets you test your internal metronome to see if you can keep in time when the metronome click drops out. Will you still be in time when the click comes back in? Meanwhile, settings like ‘Change-Up’ gradually increase the tempo to see if you can keep up and stay in time. These coach functions allow drummers to improve their skills in a fun way that doesn’t feel like practice at all. A superb way of ensuring you stay on track when it comes to developing as a drummer.
The inbuilt metronome allows drummers to tighten their timing, the coach mode enables the building and maintenance of speed, stamina and accuracy, and the recording function allows the ability to easily track progress.

Rock out with your favourite bands or groove along to the best hip-hop tracks, you can do it all with the Roland TD1KV.
One of the main problems when it comes to practising drums at home is the noise level. It may be fun for the drummer, but not so fun for everyone around them. Complaints from neighbours and annoying the rest of the family can be common. This Roland electric kit allows you to avoid all that. With features like the beaterless kick pedal, headphone output and quiet pads, you can practice as much as you like without bothering anyone.
Typically electronic kits will have a bass drum pedal that strikes a pad in the same way a beater would hit an acoustic drum. Although much quieter than acoustic bass drums there is still a definite noise from the beater hitting the bass drum pad. The TD-1KV, however, features a beater-less kick pedal which removes the striking sound, to ensure noise is kept to a minimum.
Furthermore, the TD-1KV has a headphone jack output allowing you to practice away quietly without annoying those around you. Great for early morning or late night practice! The noise-reducing design of the snare, tom and cymbal pads further help to reduce volume for a playing set up that’s as quiet as you can possibly get.
