WNAMM09: Roland Adds To V-Drums Range


Roland has introduced the TD-4K electronic drum kit: the latest addition to the industry-leading V-Drums range. With upgraded sounds, enhanced functionality and a cool new design, they say that the TD-4K is fun to play, comfortable to use, and great for practice. Here's the details directly from Roland's press release...
The TD-4K includes the new TD-4 percussion module which features all-new expressive drum and percussion sounds, as well as new ambience effects, optimised for drums. The included mesh-snare pad features Roland's patented multi-layer mesh for incredible dynamic response, superior feel and low noise. A newly-designed four-legged drum stand allows flexible and solid positioning of the pads and places the TD-4 module in the centre for easy access. The TD-4K also includes Roland's natural playing cymbals and expressive hi-hat control, making drummers feel as if they're playing an acoustic drum kit.
Roland V-Drums are famous for their flexibility, and the TD-4K is no exception. Its Rhythm Coach® and Quick Record functions are ideal for effective practice, and the kit can be expanded with an optional pad or 3-way trigger CY-12R/C V-Cymbal. The TD-4 also accepts the optional "floating" VH-11 V-Cymbal Hi-Hat which attaches to any commercially available hi-hat stand. Perfect for practice at home, with a band, or in the studio, the TD-4K brings advanced V-Drums technology to an affordable price point.
Pricing and Availability:
The TD-4K is scheduled to ship in February. More information:
