Roland TD-12KV
I reu two weeks ago, it has been two weeks so I was drummer!

I can not really compare it with an acoustic drummer, but a friend assures me that the touch is nearly identical ... and that to have tried several times the TD20, the diffrence in price is justified absolutely not (the only diffrence are: Size of pads, large TD20 on the toms are the size of the snare of the TD12, the number of pads (5 instead of 3 on the TD12), the bass drum and hi-hat (2 pices against a mobile for the TD12). The sound module is less complete, but the seller assures me that the sounds are better, because latest issue and developed.

Not much to add that dj t tt said ... except that it is indeed not be emptied of its own kit ...

Frankly a good purchase, I think.

I have not yet purchased, but j'tudie srieusement the question, I tried it and went around 4 or 5 stores in the southwest.

In my opinion, this is "THE" must-electronic drumkit, the best on the market.
With this machine, you play the house (it is quieter than my DTXPRESS) and together you put the fire with a look more and more enjoyable.
In my opinion the td-8 is also good but found quasiement Submitted except used, but the show was a snare 10 "sensitive position strikes possibility of playing brushes (plastic ), you do everything you can do with an acoustic what. The toms have two areas also possibility of rimshot, it's best!

the td-8 short yes, but it is scarce, the td-20: toy star, all APRS kits rubber, it is to train home, but not the drumkit!

I confirm also that one can touch 3100 euros in a shop in south-west, with 200 euros more, you got the double pedals and foot with charley!!

Look no further, is the flagship of the drumkit I would say "electro-acoustic".
ps: I am not a salesman at Roland! jur

Franky drums's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland TD-12KV

I bought it in 3200 Musikproductiv euros (PM-10 monitor available). Very satisfied with this negotiation. All arrived quickly and in perfect condition.


I had of course tried before in a Paris department store (very poorly done!) Where I was not very excited about the dynamics and sound. Hence the importance of the setting.
I still start because there is better: DDRUM a hit too loud is inappropriate to the game apart and it was the main reason for this purchase, being deprived of drumkit as living in apartments for several months. Otherwise I took a DDRUM because I think it is superior to the realism of the sounds of acoustic drums, the other brands ... that the rubber pad, no thank you.


First impressions after rising, very average. I can not find absolutely no finesse and sounds as expected.
And then after a few days of adjustment, in immerssion record: Here it is FINALLY!
Possibility of any deal, the dynamics (I found the fine) through the tension of the skin (virtual), the material of the play (wood, copper, aluminum, steel etc..) Toms short, deep .......... the setting list is long. Possibility to record their own footage in real time and trigger them from a cymbal, a pad or a Octapad. In short, you can play a piece by itself if you Dipos enough cymbals to trigger each pattern.
I find the sounds of cymbals excellent settings without too much unlike the drum sounds that require some paufinements away to the side "synthetic", but it is the result that counts and it is not bad at all.
A little disappointed (very) is also timbalero, by the sounds of Latin timbales which remain very artificial.
The rest (99%) is very good. Note that I played this TD12 THE headphone being flat.
The affected skin mesh pads and cymbals is really good. In closing his eyes, were almost seems to play real drums.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...

I obviously do it again this choice until the next V-DRUM. Ideally, a fusion of sounds and DDRUM for VDRUM for pads, cymbals, the sequencer.

I am always fascinated by the sound to go buy my cymbals in Istanbul, but I remain 100% open to electronics. AND ENJOY THE PROGRET!
