If you've ever dreamed of owning your own set of mesh-headed Roland V-Drums, the impressively priced TD-1DMK is about to make your dreams a reality. This kit's dual-layer and dual-trigger mesh snare and tom pads are quiet, lifelike, and responsive — built for a custom playing experience and equipped for late-night jam sessions. Cymbals that sway like the real thing and a bulletproof kick pad that's wide enough for double-bass pedals tailor this kit to virtually any player. The TD-1 drum module's 15 preset drum kits are expressive and inspiring, with 15 play-along songs and onboard coaching tools to get you show-ready in rapid time. Prefer drumming to your own music library? The TD-1DMK's 1/8" aux input lets you plug in and rock out to your heart's content. Music creator? MIDI over USB makes the TD-1DMK the engine to drive all your virtual instrument drum libraries.
The TD-1DMK's included TD-1 sound module comes loaded with 15 of Roland's latest preset kits to cover all essential sonic territories, from rock to EDM and beyond. Drum sounds are quick to load up and fast to dial in.
If you play virtual instruments, then you'll love the TD-1's MIDI capabilities. A single USB cord connects your V-Drums to your laptop or compatible mobile device, for performances that breathe and pump with the heart of a human drummer, with sounds that are guaranteed to stand the test of time. Call your Music Experience Sales Engineer for more information on how you can put the TD-1DMK's MIDI capabilities to work for your music.
Like your snare tight for extra rebound? Like your toms to give a little and sticks to sink in? Both these options and extremes on either side of the spectrum are possible with the TD-1DMK's tunable dual-layer mesh heads. Mesh heads have been a hallmark of the V-Drums series for years, and the TD-1DMK doesn't disappoint in that regard. These heads are not just lifelike; they are studio quiet, so you can plug in your headphones and drum the night away without disturbing the neighbors.
Ten onboard coaching functions and the included Melodics for V-Drums software can set your drumming feet on a firm foundation or advance your playing skills in no time flat. Whether you're a veteran drummer or it's your first time around the block, the TD-1DMK can take your playing to the next level.
Fifteen onboard play-along jam tracks let you build chops, imagine grooves, and workshop fills much more effectively than a static click track (though that is also available). And for YouTube covers, or when you want to learn a new song, plug in your mobile device via the TD-1DMK's 1/8" auxiliary input and mix to taste with your drum audio.
Curious about how you're advancing as a player? The TD-1DMK's onboard record function lets you capture a moment and examine it for critical self-evaluation.
The V-Drums TD-1DMK is an electronic drum set with legendary Roland quality and durability, as well as double-mesh head pads for quiet drumming with great playing feel.
With a variety of true-to-life drum kit sounds and the tonal changes you’d expect from acoustic drums, the V-Drums TD-1DMK provides the best platform to kick-start your drumming – especially with onboard drumming tools that help you improve.
The quality of drum kit that a child plays as they learn will make the difference between enjoyment and motivation or becoming last year’s hobby. The TD-1DMK is quieter than many other electronic drums too, so you can encourage your child to play without needing ear defenders.
With all double-mesh heads for superior stick resistance, natural rebound and true-to-life tonal changes and expression, the TD-1DMK is the perfect partner for any drum student serious about taking their drumming to the next level.
If you used to play drums, you’ll appreciate how good it feels to nail that beat and play along to your favourite songs. Simply connect your smartphone to the V-Drums TD-1DMK and play and, if you need to brush up your skills, use the on-board coach function or Melodics app to get that beat back.
There’s no substitute for a great drum teacher when learning drums, but motivation to practice and maintaining focus outside of lessons is key to improving your drumming skills. Melodics for V-Drums offers step-by-step, interactive play-along lessons, with free courses for V-Drums players.
If you’ve haven’t played drums before, you might think it’ll be too difficult, or that learning on an electronic kit is complicated. The TD-1DMK is a hassle-free drum kit that’s easy to set up and intuitive to use. Just connect the power, switch on and connect either your headphones or monitor speakers. You’re ready to start playing an authentic-sounding collection of drums, with a choice of 15 preset kits, for a realistic and engaging drumming experience. And when it’s time to start working on your drum skills, onboard coach functions and Melodics for V-Drums software let you learn the essentials and quickly start climbing the ladder. It’s easy to move around in your home too, so whether you’re playing solo or want to perform for your friends and family, the TD-1DMK can go wherever you play.
When your child learns a musical instrument, they also learn about life. Along with discipline and determination, the sheer enjoyment they’ll get when playing drums is priceless. Developing accurate timing and keeping a solid beat are fundamental elements of drumming, and the TD-1 module’s onboard metronome and 10 coach functions show your child how their timing skills are improving. The game-like experience of the coaching functions means that although they’re learning, every session is fun and engaging. Melodics for V-Drums, a free application for Windows or Mac computers, provides a series of free drum lessons that help develop a sense of rhythm without it seeming like hard work. The TD-1DMK’s pads are quieter than other electronic drums too, so your child can practice without limitation. From durable dual-ply mesh heads to a kick drum pad that absorbs the impact of a beater, all V-Drums are built to be noticeably quieter when played*. The TD-1DMK can continuously support your child as they develop the concentration, patience and physical strength that comes through regular playing.
Whether you want to be a drum hero in a band or you just want to develop solid drumming skills, the TD-1DMK helps you get there by supporting the techniques learned in your tuition. The TD-1DMK faithfully responds to the subtle nuances of your playing – with every stick hit and all the dynamics detected and faithfully relayed, thanks to the fast processing and authentic acoustic sounds of the TD-1 module. And as you improve, the TD-1 module can keep up with you, reflecting your superior technique and expression. The dual-layer mesh heads for the snare and toms can be tension-adjusted and offer stronger stick resistance compared with other mesh heads, giving natural rebound and feel that’s as close as possible to the feel of playing acoustic drum heads. Kick pedal feel and rebound is also important for your drumming – so the TD-1DMK is compatible with your choice of kick pedal, including double-kick pedals, while the soft rubber pad absorbs the energy from the beater, for a natural feel, faithful rebound and quieter performance.
If you used to play drums, you’ll remember how good it felt – whether the sheer physicality and expression of playing alone, or the enjoyment of collaborating with other musicians and nailing a song together. The TD-1DMK can help bring drums back into your life, whether you’re brushing up your skills or picking up where you left off. From onboard songs across a variety of genres, to connecting your smartphone to the module and playing along to your favorite tracks, the TD-1DMK lets you play along with music while you smooth out those rough edges. And if those edges are a little too rough, the quiet performance of the TD-1DMK and the option to use headphones lets you immerse yourself in the music without disturbing your family. The durable TD-1DMK is infused with legendary V-Drums reliability too, so you can play with confidence for years to come. And as your skills and ambitions grow, you can expand the TD-1DMK by adding an extra crash cymbal or even upgrading the sound module. Give yourself a break – start playing drums again with the TD-1DMK.
