When your drum technique is evolving fast and your career is taking flight, it's vital to play a kit that matches your ambition. As the new flagship release from Roland's acclaimed V-Drums range, the TD-50K offers unparalleled expression for top-level performance, demanding practice sessions and pro studio work. Built on the foundation of their powerful new TD-50 module with Prismatic Sound Modeling, this electronic drum kit offers wide-ranging dynamic sounds complemented by a new PD-140DS snare and CY-18DR ride cymbal with multi-element sensor system. Meanwhile, deep customisation and open-ended connectivity mean it's never been easier to capture your sound. The Roland V-Drums TD-50K is as serious as you are.
Dynamic Prismatic Sound Modeling Brings Your Drumming to Life
Great drummers demand great performance, and at the heart of the Roland TD-50K, you'll find the TD-50—a powerful new sound module whose original Prismatic Sound Modeling technology means that every element of your playing style is caught and conveyed in thrilling detail. Working alongside the TD-50K's pads and cymbals, the TD-50's high-resolution processing gives you the most lifelike, resonant, and expressive sounds you'll hear from an electronic kit.
Customise Your Sound for Live Sessions and Studio Work
A variety of musical scenarios are no problem with the TD-50, which offers a choice of onboard kits to suit every session. This advanced module also supports deep sound customisation, including basic adjustment of heads and shells, layering of internal and user samples, and adjustment of overhead mics and ambience. For tailored performance, a compressor and three-band EQ can be controlled for each pad individually, while three independent multi-effect sections let you treat specific drums with 30 effect types such as delay, flanger, saturator, and many others. The two-band multi-compressor and four-band equaliser on the output let you change the overall dynamics and tonal balance, depending on whether you're in the studio or onstage. The new Snapshot feature is a fast way to assess and compare any edits to your sounds before making permanent changes.
Play Genuine Snare Techniques With The New 14-inch PD-140DS
Working alongside the TD-50 sound module is the PD-140DS Digital Snare, which brings a new level of expression to your snare work. A brand-new, three-layer mesh head is fitted to a standard size 14-inch shell for natural rebound and feel, and is instantly familiar to play. But now, thanks to Roland's newly developed multi-element sensor system, your hits across every area of the pad are more closely detected, and your playing dynamics captured in minute detail. Rim shots and cross sticks are automatically detected as the pad senses your hand and adjusts accordingly, producing a sound that is natural, detailed, and bursting with character.
Play Advanced Cymbal Techniques With The New CY-18DR Ride
The ride is one of the most expressive elements of any kit, and Roland has developed the new CY-18DR to complement your playing style. With its regular 18-inch size and familiar motion during performance, this new digital cymbal fits seamlessly into your kit. Meanwhile, the high-resolution multi-sensor system within the cymbal pad continuously detects every stroke from edge to bell, working alongside the TD-50 module for dynamics and response that have never before been heard from a cymbal pad. Put the CY-18DR through its paces with techniques from cymbal legato to soft bell strokes and hear the detail for yourself. You can even mute the bow with a finger touch!
Play With Your Own WAV Files and Record Easily to a DAW
As a creative drummer, you'll love the TD-50K's open-ended connectivity, which lets inspiration flow in both directions. Using the module's SD card slot, it's easy to trigger your own WAV files using any of the TD-50K's drum pads. You can loop or layer WAV sounds alongside the internal sounds while controlling volume and tone via the TD-50's front panel. When you write a great groove, simply connect the TD-50 module to a computer via USB for multi-track recording direct to your favourite DAW. Up to 10 channels can be recorded separately, then easily edited for tone colour and more. There's even a choice of audio sampling formats: 48 kHz, 96 kHz, and the standard 44.1kHz.
Hit the Stage Faster with Balanced Connections to a PA
If you play live every night, the TD-50K will help avoid the time and effort of a lengthy setup. The TD-50 is the first V-Drums module to feature an XLR stereo master out and eight TRS direct outs, allowing for a balanced connection to a PA system. Assigning the pad to any of the individual outputs is simple, while convenient master/headphones volume controls and group faders balance the output level for each pad instantly. You can also assign the volume to control headphones only, letting you adjust the monitor level without affecting the PA signal.
Practice Features to Develop Your Technique
The TD-50K is the choice for serious drummers, but there's always room for improvement. This new kit doesn't just let your drum technique shine, it actively improves it too, offering onboard features that help you get the best from practice sessions. Whether you lock down your timing with the Quiet Count function or play along to backing tracks via the SD card slot, it's easy to get inspired, even when you're practising alone.
