Description

Roland's TD-17 Series adds to the legacy of the Roland V-Drums family, and the Roland TD-17KV electronic drum set comes in as the mid-level model of the lineup. It boasts quality sounds, great playability and response, easy-to-use features and rugged reliability. Powered by the TD-17 drum module, the TD-17KV also features a larger PDX-12 dual-trigger mesh snare pad which feels more like an acoustic snare with a shallower rim, natural-feeling PDX-8 dual-trigger mesh tom pads, sensitive and realistic-feeling KD-10 kick trigger, two CY-8 dual trigger cymbal pads, a CY-5 dual trigger hi-hat cymbal pad and the responsive FD-9 hi-hat control pedal. 

The TD-17KV comes equipped with built-in Bluetooth for streaming music or MIDI from a smart device, so you can learn, record tracks or just play along with your favorite songs. 

The TD-17KV also includes a KD-10 Kick Trigger Pad; a sturdy, solid kick pad with great dynamic response from delicate playing to thunderous kick patterns. The KD-10 Kick Trigger Pad is compatible with both single- and double-kick drum pedals.

In addition, the TD-17KV comes with the PDX-12, a 12" dual-ply mesh-head pad with outstanding sensitivity and response across the entire drum head surface, providing a great feeling, acoustic-like playing experience. The PDX-12 also recreates rim shots and cross stick techniques with ease.

The TD-17 Drum Sound Module features a new set of sounds based on Roland’s popular flagship TD-50. The module is packed with over 300 quality drums, percussion and effects sounds, and 100 kits to cover any musical style. The TD-17 module also includes the ability to import sounds—a first for V-Drums kits in this price range. Combined with built-in sounds and easy sound editing, creating your own custom sounds and kits are virtually limitless. You can even record your performances and save your playing on a standard SDHC card. In addition to the amazing sounds and customization abilities, the TD-17 has a powerful learning tool called Coach Mode that has several different modes within. This allows you to play along to a metronome, and tells you if you're dragging, speeding up or playing dead on. It even grades your performance with an accuracy percentage.
