The Roland TD-25KV is the ultimate hybrid drum kit for home and studio. Built using some of the most dynamic and inspiring sounds from the flagship TD-30 series, the TD25KV enables a truly authentic drum playing experience thanks to mesh head upgrades, positional snare sensors and the expressive new VH-11 Hi-Hat. Building your own custom kits and sharing them with the world is now a reality with the TD25.
Dynamic, Expressive Playability and Quick Customization
Great sound is one thing but it's the integration with Roland drum hardware where the TD-25KV really shines, offering you different articulations through flams, rim shots, swells and rolls. One incredible electronic brain for a truly expressive instrument. Along with being a great drum kit for live playing or in the studio, the TD-25 also offers a range of record/playback and practice features that allow you to get your chops down playing at home.
Powered by SuperNaturalThe difference between the TD-25KV and the TD-11 comes in the form of upgraded Toms and the Cymbals. Roland have given this kit 6.5” PDX-6 Mesh Head Tom Pads which like its 8” Snare counterpart, gives the user the accurate dual triggering technology and even sensing from head to rim. Again a further upgrade is in the cymbals department. The CY-12C Crash Cymbal gives the crash natural swinging motion and choke control. The CY-13R Ride Cymbal gives the user an enlarged bow area, realistic playing field and accurate control over edge, bow and bell triggers.

Unrivaled Sound and Expressiveness
The TD-25KV delivers a superior drumming experience, thanks to Roland’s SuperNATURAL technology with Behavior Modeling inherited from the flagship TD-30. 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.
High-End Feel and Playability
When you sit down at the TD-25KV, you’ll enjoy expressive playability that rivals high-end V-Drums sets. There’s a full compliment of mesh-head pads for the 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. Last but not least is the KD-9 Kick Pad, which offers a natural-feel cloth head and rock-solid response.
Call Up Kits and Start Playing Immediately
With its no-nonsense interface, the 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. Next step? Start playing!
Customize Kits for Your Personal Style
The Roland TD-25KV 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.
Play Along with Tracks and Record Audio Performances
Want a little jamming music to play along with? Just load up a USB memory stick with favorite WAV/MP3 songs and get lost in playing for hours. In addition to normal playback, you can loop sections you’d like to work on, or slow the playback speed to more easily learn fast fills and articulations. Alternately, you can plug a smartphone into the audio input and drum with songs from your music library or the web. It’s also possible to record your drumming performances (along with music playback) as audio files to a USB memory stick, offering a great way to evaluate your playing and share your drumming with friends and music producers. The sound module is equipped with a USB host port as well, providing a convenient connection for recording audio and MIDI data directly into DAW software.Unsure which kit might be for you?
