Roland have announced the newTD-9 V-Drums module plus two new kits based around it - the TD9KX and the more cost-effective TD-9K which offers all of the features and advantages of the TD-9KX but with rubber tom pads instead of mesh and a dual-trigger ride cymbal.
Here's video of the Roland guy demonstrating what appears to be the TD-9KX although he refers to it as the TD-9SX. So who's right, the drummer or the Roland website? We are guessing it's Roland - after all the guy is a drummer ;-)

TD-9KX
TD-9KX Features
  • Advanced TD-9 module with expressive new sounds, real-audio songs and patterns
  • Comfortable mesh-head tom and snare pads with rim triggering
  • 3-way triggering for ride cymbal
  • Scope function with graphical LCD display
  • USB host for audio-file (.WAV) playback
  • Special cable for easy pad connections
  • Sturdy drum rack (MDS-9) with newly designed ball-clamps for the snare and cymbal arms and a new hi-hat mount for maximum flexibility

TD-9
Here’s what Roland have to say about the TD-9 module…
No more squinting a small screen — the TD-9 is outfitted with a luxurious, large backlit display with accompanying oversized buttons and controls. Its friendly, icon-based user interface makes editing sounds and customizing kits fast and fun.
Play along with real-audio backing songs to build your musical experience base. Use the USB port to import audio files of your choice (.WAV), back up your data, or save a “quick record� performance. The "Quick Record" and "Quick Play" features allow you to immediately record and play back solo drum parts, or drum parts performed with the backing songs. Special connecting cable allows for fast, clean, and easy connection to the pads.

Pricing and Availability:
TD-9KX MSRP $2495. Shipping March.
