Roland has announced that the TD-12KX, the latest addition to its V-Stage family of V-Drums kits, is now available. Targeted to the demands of drummers that perform live and in the studio, the TD-12KX builds on the feature set of the popular TD-12SV kit, adding a larger kick, floor tom pad, and a new stand with improved pad mounts and durability. The editing features of the TD-12 module have also been enhanced for even more flexible sound creation.
To enhance playability, the TD-12KX includes a larger 12" KD-120 V-Kick Trigger Pad for the bass drum and a 10" PD-105 floor tom pad for the floor tom. The TD-12KX also comes equipped with a VH-11 V-Hi-Hat and three 12" CY-12R/C V-Cymbals.
The brain of this newest V-Drums kit — the TD-12 Percussion Sound Module — features the same COSM sound engine as the popular TD-20, and provides supreme sound quality and direct outputs for professional flexibility. Editing sounds is easy on the TD-12 thanks to V-Edit, which allows drummers to adjust parameters, such as shell material, head type and cymbal size with a simple icon-based graphic interface. With the TD-12KX kit, the V-Edit functions have been enhanced to include microphone placement, bass drum beater selection, adding a hi-hat tambourine, and more. The TD-12 also offers many useful functions for drum practice, including onboard music patterns, a sequencer, a programmable click, and a mix input jack for connecting MP3 or CD players.
Easy setup and increased stability are among the many practical enhancements offered by the all-new MDS-12X stand. Its lower weight center provides more stability and playability. Additionally, newly improved cymbal and tom mounts include ball clamps for flexible and easy set-up and positioning.
The TD-12KX V-Stage Series V-Drums is now available with an MSRP of $5,399.
