Bop-sized shells and advanced SuperNATURAL sound modeling give the Roland V-Drums TD-25KVX a satisfying voice and response for the discriminating V-Drummer. This kit owes much to the more-expensive TD-30KV, including its expressive drum synthesis and 12" PD-128S-BC snare. Where we feel the TD-25KVX goes above and beyond is its 12" kick drum with advanced trigger modeling, which has all the realism and visual flair of an acoustic kick drum — a sweet feature for those who take their V-Drums to the stage. Another notable upgrade over the TD-25KV standard are the TD-25KVX's 10" PDX-100 mesh toms, whose larger footprint afford even greater realism and translation between acoustic and electronic kits. Together with the included MDS-9SC stand, 12" VH-11 floating hi-hat, twin 12" V-Cymbals, and 13" tri-zone CY-13R ride, the Roland TD-25KVX drum kit from Music Experience promises a memorable playing experience for the touring or studio professional.
The TD-25KVX's TD-25 module inherits many features from the pricier TD-30, including its SuperNATURAL sound engine and Behavior Modeling technology. From rimshots, rolls, flams, and ghost notes to dynamic cymbal swells and chokes, the TD-25KVX captures every nuance of your performance. Positional snare sensing and realistic hi-hat effects — pumps, splashes, and washes — take this kit to a level unmatched by many others in its class.
Sit down at the TD-25KVX, and you'll savor the playability you'd expect from this level of V-Drums. You get a full complement of mesh-headed pads for that legendary V-Drums feel, with snare pad positional sensing that gives you subtle, realistic tonal changes depending on where you strike the pad. The cymbals deliver a natural swinging motion and faithfully reproduce chokes, bow/edge crash techniques, and bow/edge/bell sounds on the ride. The VH-11 V-Hi-hat mounts on a standard hi-hat stand (not included) and features open/closed motion and bow/edge sounds that support traditional playing techniques.
With its easy-to-use interface, the Roland TD-25 drum module lets you get up and grooving immediately. Even with sticks in your hands, the large center dial lets you quickly select your kit based on musical genres such as standard, rock, jazz, electronic, and more. Choose a style and then press the dial to toggle between different kit variations. With the TD-25, it's easy to customize sounds to your playing techniques or a particular musical style. Simply hit a pad to pull up the sound assigned to it and then tweak the panel knobs to adjust tuning, muffling, or relative volume. The TD-25 gives you shortcuts to speed up tom editing, letting you assign sounds and change muffling and tuning for all toms simultaneously. Your edits are saved automatically, eliminating extra steps. Of course, if you decide you don't like your recent tweaks, then it's easy to undo them and return the kit to its state when you first selected it.
