Roland TD-6KV : ericthegreat's user review
« great kit for beginners »
Roland is touting this as a beginner's set and on that level it completely succeeds. I've been drumming for 20 plus years and I wish I had started on something like this.
Even the tom pads feel just fine and have very good sensitivity.
The lack of individual outs is going to stop some players from using this in a live situation, but if you have a decent system and have set your levels correctly it works in that capacity as well.
I found the hardest thing to get used to is the hi-hat pedal. The actual pedal is fine, but the open/closed sensitivity could be a wee bit better.
Overall for the money I am completely satisfied. Very cool and a lot of fun. If you're a beginner, this is the way to go. You won't drive anyone else nuts with your constant restarts during practice. You can play along with your favorite band by plugging in your iPhone/iPad or whatever you have. There are downloadable music sans drums on Rolands site, along with lessons you can purchase.
Great beginning set. Very light and easy to assemble. The pads have a fantastic feel. The set is very easy to set up. It's very easy to get all the pads just how you want them. The sounds are pretty basic and it took me a little while of playing with them to warm up to them. For the price range, you cannot find anything better. Great high quality sounds, very compact with all your toms snare and kicks and crashes/hats. It gives you that real drum set feel. But when you live some where that you can just rock out with real drums this is exactly what you need to go for. You wont disturb anyone with this, its very quiet and professional. Price is kind of high though but its worth it.
