Authentic Playing Feel
If you regularly play acoustic drums, you shouldn’t have to change your playing style to use an electronic drum kit. You can use the same playing techniques you’d use on an acoustic kit, without compromise, thanks to the large 12-inch snare and a natural-feeling hi-hat that can be mounted on an acoustic hi-hat stand.
Great Sounds Lead to Great Performances
The TD-17 sound module delivers a superior drumming experience thanks to our expressive Prismatic Sound Modeling technology. Begin playing and you’ll notice a wider dynamic range and dramatic tonal changes, depending on where and how hard you strike the pad. From rimshots, rolls, flams, and ghost notes on the snare to dramatic crash hits, sustained cymbal swells, and half-open position on the hi-hats along with different sounds for the bow and edge, every nuance is detailed, accurate, and ultra-smooth.
Find the Perfect Kit for the Music You Play
The TD-17 module includes premium-quality preset kits for a range of professional musical scenarios. Experience the warm vibes of “Acoustic,” or play on a small stage with the tight “Compact” preset. Rock heavy in the wide-open expanse of “Arena Stage,” or go for maximum recording clarity with the clean and defined “Studio” preset. And that’s just a start—whatever music drives your passion, the TD-17 will help you get there.
The Feel of an Acoustic Kick Drum—but Quieter
A nice, solid kick drum usually comes with a nice, loud noise. Sometimes that’s exactly what you want, but your family or neighbors may not feel the same. The KD-10 Kick Pad absorbs most of the impact noise thanks to its carefully engineered rubber components and cushion, all while retaining that satisfying acoustic kick drum “thud” when a beater is buried in a full-size head. In addition to keeping the noise down, the versatile design is compatible with all standard kick pedals, both single and double.
Essential Tools to Improve Your Drumming
First things first: drummers should be able to keep a solid beat before moving on to the exciting stuff. But mastering the basics can be exciting too, as it builds a solid foundation for growing as a musician. The TD-17 module includes a Coach mode to support your daily exercise regime, complete with tracking that makes learning fun and rewarding. Play through warm-ups, develop your sense of groove, tempo, and timing, and even work on your stamina—all with a score that highlights your progress and motivates you to improve.
Join Your Favorite Band—No Audition Necessary
While playing endless drum solos is undeniably fun, it only takes you so far. With the TD-17 module, you can push your drumming further by playing along with your favorite bands—including your own. Wirelessly stream music from your smartphone via Bluetooth audio and listen to the entire performance through your headphones. You can even record your performance to hear where you need to tighten things up.
Performance Under Pressure for Years to Come
Roland V-Drums are world-famous for their rugged reliability. Every component is built to last and ready to deliver across every scenario and performance. And as your skills and ambitions grow, you can expand your TD-17KVX kit by adding an extra crash cymbal or second snare—safe in the knowledge that you’re using the same durable components favored by pro drummers.
