The second generation of the TD-17 boasts a re-vamped sound engine, in addition to 20 brand-new preset kits — half of which were only previously available on the top-of-the-line VAD-306. Moreover, these kits feature 26 built-in samples that can be added to your custom kits, offering a whole new level of percussion personalization. From metal blast beats to EDM grooves to dry recording kits, the TD-17 is loaded with versatile sounds for any genre, and you can even upload your own sounds as WAV files via SD/HC card to craft the kit of your dreams. Moreover, each and every sound can be fine-tuned with the TD-17’s impressive processing and effects engine with snare tension, compression, EQ, reverb, and many more sonic sculpting tools.

      Bluetooth MIDI and song streaming

      The TD-17’s built-in Bluetooth transceiver is sure to elevate your practice and recording sessions. Music can be streamed directly from your device to the module, allowing you to practice with your favorite grooves and fills. Plus, if you’re in a creative mood, the TD-17’s Bluetooth functionality can also send your beats wirelessly as MIDI notes, capturing your inspiration for later. Finally, audio/MIDI over USB and a standard 5-pin MIDI output are available for musicians who prefer the old-school reliability of a cord connection.

      Enhanced Roland Cloud support

      Looking for some fresh new sounds? The Second Generation TD-17’s enhanced Roland Cloud integration makes it a breeze to expand your tonal toolbox with Roland’s vast library of studio-quality sounds and samples. Even better, Roland Cloud gives you access to a myriad of signature artist kits, putting the sonic power of the world’s top drummers in your hands.

      PDX-12 snare pad

      This kit’s wide assortment of pads starts off with the PDX-12, a 12-inch dual-trigger snare pad that boasts an incredibly realistic feel and response. The 12-inch size offers an easy transition for players migrating from a kit-size snare. Plus, a tunable 2-ply head allows you to dial in your preferred level of rebound, from a solid, tight bounce to a loose wallop. For the uninitiated, switching from a traditional snare to a pad can feel like a compromise, but the PDX-12 truly captures the natural feel of an acoustic snare.

      KD-10 kick pad

      Looking for a kick pad with the feedback of a traditional acoustic head? The tower-style KD-10 kick pad delivers exceptionally organic playability, capturing every nuance of your playing dynamics. A combination of a rock-solid frame and anchoring spurs keep the KD-10 firmly in place, allowing you to stomp out even the most aggressive of double-bass blast beats with impunity.

      VH-10 hi-hat

      Mount this advanced 10-inch hi-hat pad to your favorite hi-hat stand (not included) using the included clutch and trigger base, and the VH-10 rewards you with realistic pumps, splashes, and closed-to-open contrast. Its dual-trigger system is able to capture nuances that many other electric drum kits miss. And its textured playing surface reduces acoustic volume to keep practice and performances quiet.

      PDX-8 toms (x3)

      Roland’s V-Toms sport a dual-trigger design for a nuanced response that captures your strikes across both the head and rim. Plus, the head and rim can be configured in the TD-17 to produce any type of sound you require, allowing for creative custom setups!

      CY-12C-T (x2) and CY-14R-T cymbal

      This generation of Roland V-Drums features a thinner, more sensitive CY-14R-T ride cymbal and two CY-12C-T crash cymbals. In addition to their new low profile, both of these cymbals offer a choke control that functions just like a traditional cymbal — just grab the edge! The CY-12C-T crash sports a trigger point on both the bow and edge, while the CY-14R-T ride is designed with 3-way independent triggering on the bow, edge, and bell for a wide variety of configuration options.

      Keep your setup solid

      This set comes equipped with Roland’s rock-solid MDS-compact drum stand to rig up your set safely and securely. It’s a favorite stand among Music Experience percussionists for its sheer durability, but the included boom arms and easy-positioning mounts for the toms/snare certainly don’t hurt either! Non-slip rubber feet keep the MDS-Compact rooted firmly to the ground, allowing you to go all-out without fear of your set slipping and shifting around. A multi-pin trigger harness, module mount, power supply, and smartphone tray complete the MDS-Compact, providing an incredible level of utility and reliability.

With the TD-17KVX2, the journey to becoming a better drummer is faster than you can imagine.

      Authentic Playing Feel and Skill-Building Tools

      If you regularly play acoustic drums, you shouldn’t have to change your playing style to use an electronic drum kit. You can use the same playing techniques you’d use on an acoustic kit, without compromise, thanks to the large 12-inch snare and a natural feeling hi-hat. And being based on the flagship TD-50 sound engine, the sounds faithfully reproduce the character and tone of acoustic drums, with lightning fast response time.

      Great Sounds Lead To Great Performances

      The TD-17’s sound engine delivers a superior drumming experience thanks to Prismatic Sound Modeling technology inherited from the flagship TD-50 sound module. Begin playing and you’ll notice a wider dynamic range and dramatic tonal changes, depending on where and how hard you strike the pad. From rim shots, rolls, flams, and ghost notes on the snare to dramatic crash hits, sustained cymbal swells, and half-open position on the hi-hats along with different sounds for the bow and edge, every nuance is detailed, accurate, and ultra-smooth.

      The Feel of an Acoustic Kick Drum (But Quieter)

      A nice solid kick drum usually comes with a nice loud noise. Sometimes that’s exactly what you want, but your family or neighbors may not feel the same way. The KD-10 kick pad absorbs much of the noise thanks to its rubber cover combined with a dedicated cushion, but retains that satisfying kick drum ‘thud’ when a beater buries into a bass drum head, so it’s ideal for playing at home where loud noise may cause problems. It’s compatible with all standard kick pedals, single or double kick.

      Acoustic Drumming Techniques Accepted Here

      Although each model in the TD-17 series is compact, they’re all kitted out for professional performance. Across the entire range, the position and angle of each pad is fully adjustable, while the distance between the pads and the drummer is similar to what you’d find on an acoustic kit.

      The Essential Tools to Improve Your Drumming

      First thing’s first: drummers should be able to keep a solid beat before moving on to the exciting stuff. But mastering the basics is exciting too, as it provides a solid foundation for building your skills, not forgetting that tracking your progress is highly motivating too. The TD-17 module includes a Coach Mode to support your daily exercise regime. You can warm up, develop your sense of groove, tempo and timing, and even work on your stamina—all with a score that tells you how you’re doing.

      Deepen Your Sense of Groove

      The Time Check mode develops your accuracy when playing to a click track. The number of accurate strikes is shown as a percentage value, and the screen indicates whether your pad strikes were on, ahead or behind the beat. Used often, Time Check is an invaluable aid to working the groove.

      Fine-Tune Your Internal Timing

      Quiet Count mode helps refine your ‘internal’ sense of time and tempo. For the first few measures, the click is heard at the specified volume, but for the next few measures the click cuts out. During the silenced bars, you will rely on your internal sense of timing, aiming to stay in time as the click returns. Your internal metronome will grow stronger the more you use it.

      Effective Warmup Routines Made Easy

      WarmUp mode makes your daily practice sessions more enjoyable—which means you’re more likely to do them. Choose to warm up over five, ten or fifteen minutes, with varying rates of difficulty, and then select a tempo. A range of exercises will then prepare you for some serious drumming, including changes to rhythm type, changes to tempo and evaluating the accuracy of your playing. At the end, you’ll get an overall grade—which you’ll want to improve on.

      Preparing To Play Live

      When rehearsing, it’s important to play with the same familiar drum sounds that you’ll be using on stage. The TD-17 includes a variety of expressive modelled drum sounds inherited from the flagship TD-50, so you’ll be sure to find the perfect drum sound as you prepare for the gig.

      Find the Perfect Kit for the Music You Play

      The TD-17 module includes 50 premium quality drumkits for a range of professional musical scenarios. The warm, wooden vibes of ‘Acoustic’. The small-but-tight ‘Compact’ which captures the sound of smaller stages. The wide-open expanse of ‘Arena Stage’. The clarity of “Studio” which is perfect for recording. The richness of “Fat Rock” or the intensity of “Speed Metal”…whatever music gets you going, the TD-17 will help you get there.

      Get To Know Your Gig Venue Before You Arrive

      Before the gig, become familiar with the acoustics of the venue you’ll be performing at. Use the onboard reverb and ambience of the TD-17 module to simulate the sound and become acclimatized to the venue—all from the comfort of your home.

      Create Your Very Own Signature Drum Kit

      Today’s pro drummers craft their signature drum sounds by layering many sound elements; a snare sound is made by layering different snare sounds, each with their respective attack elements, ambience and so on. The TD-17 also lets you create your signature drum kit, by using onboard pitch control, EQ, effects and more.

      Import Samples and Sound Just Like the Record

      For some performances, you simply have to use a specific sound. The TD-17 module can import samples so you can trigger original single-shot drum samples, or introduce entire audio phrases, sequences or vocals. Imported samples can even be mixed and layered with internal TD-17 sounds, to create a powerful and full drum sound that matches the real thing.

      Learn At Your Own Pace with Online Lessons and Desktop Applications

      Aside from studying with a drum teacher, there are plenty of online drum lessons or computer-based learning methods. The TD17 is designed to help you improve—however you like to learn.

      Have Fun Improving With Melodics

      Have fun and become a better drummer by downloading Melodics for V-Drums: a free application for Windows or Mac computers. With a series of free drum lessons that develop your sense of rhythm, timing, and muscle memory, subscribers can also access additional premium content including over 70 lessons, with more being added each week.

      Performance under Pressure, For Years to Come

      Roland V-Drums are built to be reliable—from the sound module, to the pads, right down to the pedals; each component must deliver, across every scenario and in every performance. The pads and pedals used in the TD-17 series are engineered to take a beating, but their playability also endures. And as your skills and ambitions grow, you can expand your TD-17 by adding an extra crash cymbal or second snare—safe in the knowledge that you’re using the same durable components favored by pro drummers.
