Roland TD-30K V-Pro Electronic Drum Set
For over a decade, Roland’s revolutionary V-Drums have lead the industry in sound quality and playability. With the introduction of the SuperNATURAL-powered TD-30KV and TD-30K V-Pro Series, this is not just a step forward for Roland, but for electronic drums in general. SuperNATURAL sounds, Behavior Modeling, and advanced sensing technology provide a new level of expression sound quality and playability, resulting in an instrument that reacts and responds to all the subtleties and nuances of your performance.
In addition, a USB audio-playback function has been added to expand the performance palette. For the stage (TD-30KV) or for professional recording (TD-30K), the new V-Pro is truly a complete and natural drumming experience.
The TD-30KV and the TD-30K both feature:
• Flagship V-Drums with advanced sensing technology and SuperNATURAL sounds!
• The amazing new Roland TD-30 Drum Sound Module!
• Expressive and accurate playability produced by Behavior Modeling.
• Professional V-Edit mode for customizing sounds.
• Dedicated “Ambience” fader with new room-ambience and overhead-mic simulation.
• USB memory port for data backup and audio playback (WAV/MP3).
• Separate USB-MIDI port for computer connectivity.
Special Features of the TD-30KV:
• 6-piece drum set with a two-up and two-down toms configuration. A snare stand is required for the snare drum pad.
• Solid and exclusive stage rack set (MDS-30) with metallic gray and black-chrome color finish.
• New V-Hi-Hat (VH-13-MG) with improved motion sensor for natural hi-hat response.
• New V-Pads (PD-128S/128/108-BC) with improved rim sensor for accurate rim-shot sensing.
• New vertically adjustable tom arms for greater positioning ability.
• New V-Cymbals (CY-14C-MG Crash, CY-15R-MG Ride) with natural feel and accurate triggering.
Unique Features of the TD-30K:
• Standard 5-piece configuration: two tom pads in front and one floor tom position pad. The snare pad is mounted to the rack so a snare stand is not required.
• New lightweight 10-inch V-Pad (PDX-100) for toms.
• Compact, solid drum rack, black-finished (MDS-12V) for professional studio requirements. Provides flexible ball clamps for snare and toms, boom/straight options for the cymbal arms, and an internal cable management system, for a clean professional look. It has been specifically designed for the TD-30K V-Pro series.
PD-128S-BC/-128-BC V-Pad - A new rim sensor has been specifically developed for these 12-inch mesh head pads in conjunction with the TD-30 to accurately detect dynamics and rim-shot depth. The pads feature an exchangeable black-chrome color shell wrap. The pad is offered in two formats, the PD-128-BC and PD-128S-BC. The PD-128-BC is designed as toms and comes with a two-way mount holder; PD-128S-BC is snare-stand mountable.
PD-108-BC V-Pad - This mesh head pad also includes the new rim sensor for improved dynamics and rim-shot depth. The pad features an exchangeable black-chrome color shell wrap and accommodates dual mounting for setup versatility.
VH-13-MG V-Hi-Hats - The new V-Hi-Hat (VH-13-MG) features an improved motion sensor. Combined with advanced triggering technology, the response is more natural with smooth open to closed control. The surface is a new metallic-gray color, cosmetically matching the new series of V-Cymbals.
CY-14C-MG/-15R-MG V-Cymbal - The new V-Cymbals (CY-14C-MG Crash, CY-15R-MG Ride) are offered in an eye-catching metallic-gray color surface to cosmetically match the new V-Hi-Hat, new V-Pads, and chrome-finished drum stand. They provide a natural swing-feel and accurate triggering and sensitivity across the entire cymbal surface.
KD-140-BC V-Kick - This solid, stylish new kick pad features an exchangeable new black-chrome shell wrap. It provides stable performance and accurate triggering with a natural, acoustic-like kick feel.
PDX-100 V-Pad - Compact and lightweight, this new 10-inch mesh head V-Pad also provides a dual-mount option for increased setup versatility.
The ROLAND TD-30 Drum Sound Module
The TD-30 drum sound module is the heart of both of the TD-30 Pro-Series drum sets. With SuperNATURAL® Sounds, Behavior Modeling, and various other special features it’s no wonder why Roland continues to be the leader in electronic drums.
The TD-30 with SuperNATURAL® sounds produced by Behavior Modeling has superior sound quality that responds naturally to a variety of techniques and styles. From rim shots, rolls, flams, ghost notes to dramatic crash hits and sustained cymbal swells, every nuance is smooth and accurate. A dedicated Ambience fader gives you immediate access to lush room ambience and overhead-microphone simulation to create special depth.
Wide Variety of Sounds
The TD-30 features a wide range of preset drum kits that are perfect for all styles of music. Whether you’re playing rock, jazz, hip-hop, or dance you’re sure to find the perfect kit in the TD-30. With over 1,000 onboard sounds, whether they are acoustic drums—kicks, snares, cymbals and percussion—or electronic drums and special effects sounds, the V-Edit possibilities combined with the powerful onboard effects make it easy to create a unique and personalized kit for any musical style.
Natural Playing Feel and Sound
The TD-30 features vastly improved trigger response, dynamics, and positional sensing. The result is an even more obvious and natural reaction between the player and the sound. Including:
•Snare Drum — A smoother transition in sound reaction between head shots and rim shots. The snare drum perfectly responds to exactly how and where the drummer plays. The dynamics, positional sensing, and even the transition between full and shallow rim shots has become smoother.
•Crash Cymbals — Be it delicate playing, swell rolls, or powerful crash shots, the contrasts in dynamic sound reactions are more discernible than ever.
•Ride Cymbal — Enhanced dynamics and positional sensing make for a wonderfully natural feel and sound variations, be it up-tempo jazz playing or straight-on rock.
Drum Sound Reaction - When playing fast open rolls, flams, or ghost-style, single-handed buzz rolls, the sound remains continuous between each hit. And press/closed rolls sound even smoother with the snare buzz resonance reacting in a natural way.
Hi-Hat Control - When playing the hi-hat from a fully open position and slowly closing it, a perfectly smooth transition in sound is achieved. Playing in the half-open position or even in a slightly open position, the sound remains constant. And the foot-closed sounds and foot splashes are easier to control.
Ambience Section - How the drummer hears himself and how the drums are heard within the music have been given unrivaled attention, and by taking advantage of enhanced DSP power, a new ambience section has been created. On the front panel of the TD-30 there is a dedicated fader for the overall ambience balance.
Overhead Mic — For recording drums in the studio, placement of the overhead mics is a must to guarantee a natural presence and brightness in the sound. You can adjust the room size and the room mic position within a choice of room types that include a concert hall, studio, club, arena, etc.
Reverb — A customized reverb has been specially created for the snare, kick, and toms, helping them to musically blend together inside the music in an even more natural way.
Recording Studio Applications - The TD-30 offers sound creation potential for all aspects of drumming performance. You can choose from a wide selection of snare drums, change the head type and tuning, move individual microphone positions, customize the shape of the room the drums are in, and adjust both the overhead mic and room mic positions. Enhance your sound with the effects and create the perfect audio balance with the individual kit mixer—all within the TD-30!
Powerful Onboard Effects - Each pad can have its own compressor and 3-band graphic EQ, just like in a recording studio. New multi-effects include insertion effects like the saturator or a flanger. And, as in the studio, the final sonic touches can be realized with a powerful stereo compressor and a 4-band master EQ.
