Roland TD-1DMK V-Drums Electronic Drum Kit
The most important element to draw your attention to on this kit is the double mesh heads, and this is no surprise, given that it is this feature that gives this TD-1 the suffix of DMK. Roland are continually pushing the boundaries, and they have made the realistic feel of an acoustic kit available on this incredibly affordable electronic kit. The mesh heads grant the TD-1DMK an authentic playing feel, a feel that is itself inspiring enough to develop a new generation of drummers. However, it is not just the pads that are chosen for their playability, but also the cymbal pads. The TD-1DMK is equipped with CY-5 cymbal pads, which boast 10-inch playing surfaces, and also a swinging motion that gives them the realistic feel. The cymbals have two triggering points meaning that they can even be choked, enhancing the realistic playing feel. Furthermore, this kit is equipped with a wider kick pad, the same as that on the TD-1KPX2, which allows you to play double kick patterns as it boasts enough space for two beaters using a double kick pedal set up.
No drummer wants to hold back, and no drummer should hold back. The TD-1DMK is built to sustain all the thrashing, bumps and bruises an acoustic kit has to handle. The pads themselves, being double ply mesh heads, are significantly durable. Drums, after all, are meant to be hit! The frame is also very different from the original TD-1, as it is identical to the higher range TD-17 frame. This is stronger, more stable and absolutely stable, while still being lightweight enough to move comfortably. It also allows for more freedom in movement so you can find your playing set up without compromise.
Practice isn’t easy, and it certainly isn’t always fun. The TD-1 module that is the life source of the TD-1DMK holds 10 coaching features, all design to make practice easier, and more enjoyable. The quiet count function drops beats out of the count to force you to develop your natural rhythmic tempo, practice that is brilliant for live application where you need to trust your own BPM. The stroke balance function helps you develop your rudiments evenly, without the monotony that can so often creep in to practice. Alongside several other coaching options, the TD-1 module also holds a quick record function, allowing you to record, listen back and critique your playing, to constantly and consistently push yourself. In addition, Roland have teamed up with Melodics, which offer you 43 free lessons when you sign up. They make learning and practice fun and inspiring, and content is updated frequently to always keep your development fresh!
The TD-1DMK does not disappoint when it comes to the sounds. As expected with all the kits in the Roland V-Drums range, the TD-1 module holds a variety of kit sounds, all which play at a brilliant standard, from rock to pop kits, and even drum and bass electronic sounds. No matter what your style, there is a kit for you, so that you always feel enthused to move forward with your playing.
In every respect, Roland have made a brilliant addition to their V-Drums range. Authentic to feel, realistic to hear, and inspiring to play and develop. This kit is designed for the next generation of drummers.
