MESSE06: Roland Expands Electronic Drum Range

New V-Drum kits and pads      30/03/06
ROLAND TD-3KW V-Drums
Roland’s V-Compact series has been given an upgrade. The new TD-3KW takes over from the current TD-3KV, and features Roland’s new PDX-8 snare mesh V-pad and CY-5 hi-hat cymbal pad.
The new PDX-8 snare mesh pad features an expanded 10-inch rim for more comfortable and quiet rim-shots, as well as separate head and rim triggering for authentic performance.
The newly designed CY-5 cymbal pad features a 12-inch playing zone and swing movement for more drummer-friendly triggering. The pad also provides separate bow and edge triggering. The CY-5 can be also used as an additional cymbal pad, such as a splash.
ROLAND TD-6KW V-Drums
Roland has also announced the TD-6KW, which succeeds the TD-6KV.
The TD-6KW features the new PDX-8mesh snare pad, CY-5 hi-hat cymbal pad and the new MDS-6C drum stand, which has been upgraded with a second horizontal tier of pipes to improve stability and durability. The attractive silver stand is a great match for the TD-6KW.
The core of the TD-6KW kit is the TD-6V Percussion Sound Module, a 64-voice brain that offers over 1,000 of Roland’s best drum/percussion sounds. Dual-trigger tom inputs allow for rim shots on toms. Large, luminous buttons and a cool, blue display should make the TD-6V user-friendly.
Drummers will appreciate the TD-6KW’s upright kick drum pad. Its vertical design not only provides a better feel compared to reverse-type kick pads, but also reduces vibration, so you get nothing but solid kick sounds. And there’s more good news in that the kick pad can accommodate double-bass pedals.
