Roland announces the TD-02K and TD-02KV, the new entry-level models in the acclaimed V-Drums lineup.
Based around the next-generation TD-02 sound module, these compact and affordable drum sets bring authentic V-Drums playability and quiet home performance to first-time drummers, practicing students, and adults looking to start playing drums again.
Since 1997, V-Drums have led the world in electronic drumming, offering unsurpassed sound, expression, and playability for everyone from beginning drummers to concert-level touring pros. Backed by decades of Roland innovation, the TD-02K and TD-02KV kits provide a premium musical experience previously unavailable at this price point.
The TD-02 module includes 16 ready-to-play kits inspired by high-end V-Drums, plus Roland’s famous Coach functions to help build and maintain skills. Drummers can connect headphones for quiet playing sessions and use the audio input to play along with favourite songs from a smartphone or other external device. The optional BOSS Bluetooth® Audio MIDI Dual Adaptor provides cable-free communication with mobile devices and computers to wirelessly stream music to the module and send data to music production apps.
The TD-02K and TD-02KV offer a full array of drum and cymbal pads with sensitive playing surfaces to develop proper techniques. The upgraded TD-02KV kit includes a Roland mesh-head snare pad with the natural stick feel and rebound of an acoustic snare drum. The hi-hat and kick trigger pedals in both kits feature noise-reducing designs to minimise sound transfer in living spaces.
The TD-02K comes with a rugged three-post stand with adjustable height to suit players of all ages, while the TD-02KV comes with a four-post stand with wider acoustic-style pad spacing. Both stands can be easily moved with the pads in place to stow in a corner or closet when not in use.
