[NAMM] Roland TD-30K & TD-30KV
Roland announces the TD-30KV and TD-30K V-Pro Series V-Drums in its lineup of V-Drums electronic percussion.
At the core of the TD-30KV and TD-30K kits is the TD-30 Drum Sound Module. It’s loaded with new sounds produced with the SuperNATURAL sounds and Behavior Modeling, including an ambience feature that emulates overhead mics and room sounds. There are 1100 instruments and 100 drum kits onboard the TD-30. Like all Roland TD series modules, all internal drum kits are user programmable for creating customized settings and kits.
The TD-30 features the V-Drums V-Edit interface, and includes metallic parts on the panel to enhance visibility in low lighting. The rear panel has trigger inputs for the pads, along with multiple audio outputs and MIDI I/O. Two different USB ports allow users to play audio files from flash media, as well as connect directly to computers for MIDI over USB.
The TD-30KV offers new pads and cymbals, as well as new Black Chrome shell wraps. The snare and four tom V-Pads (PD-128S-BC; PD-128-BC x 2; and PD-108-BC x 2) feature updated rim sensors, while a new V-Hi-Hat (VH-13-MG) is included. The VH-13-MG, along with the CY-14C-MG and CY-15R-SV V-Cymbals, come in a new metallic gray finish. Rounding out the TD-30KV is the KD-140-BC V-Kick and MDS-25 chrome-finish drum rack.
The TD-30K’s three toms feature the new PDX-100 V-Pad, which offers a 10-inch mesh head with a shiny metal hoop, and vertical and horizontal mounting options. Other components include the KD-120BK V-Kick; PD-125BK V-Pad for the snare; VH-11 V-Hi-Hat; CY-12C, CY-13R, and CY-15R V-Cymbals; and the new MDS-12V drum rack, which includes an internal cable management system.
The TD-30KV and TD-30K V-Pro Series V-Drums will be available in April 2012.
