Manufacturer's ID: TD25KV
What we say:
Roland, pioneers of the digital drum kit, blaze the trail for realism, feel and sound with their all-encompassing V-Drum range. From their entry-level bedroom models to their top of the range professional touring kits, Roland stuff their V-Drums with supremely high quality sampling and modelling technology, uber-heavy duty components and the usual Roland reliability. It’s no surprise then that Roland are the world’s best-selling drum manufacturer, digital AND analogue! Wherever you are in your journey as a drummer, sit behind a V-Drum kit and experience the difference.
This TD-25KV is a real favourite with us at guitarguitar. With its all-mesh drums, its great brace of SuperNATURAL kits and a feel that's out of this world, it's a top tier experience that just gives and gives. Sold as a mid-level kit by Roland, we'd say this is pro through and through: any drummer with experience on a digital kit will have a ball with the TD-25KV. You get plenty of response and rebound across the entire kit plus a bunch of dual-sensors to allow for colour and shade in your playing. Create your own kit from the fantastic modelled components or upload more via USB. The Hi-hat has a more realistic feel too (you'll need to purchase a hi-hat stand though, don't forget!) so you can apply more of your technique.
Between the 'K' model and the 'KV', the 'KV' has bigger toms and an extra cymbal, giving you a yet more realistic feel and size. The TD-25KV is a wonderful instrument, tool and solution for drummers of all abilities.

Unrivaled Sound and Expressiveness
The TD-25KV delivers a superior drumming experience, thanks to Roland’s SuperNATURAL technology with Behavior Modeling inherited from the flagship TD-30. The sound engine responds naturally and organically to your playing in every way, providing the dynamic, interactive feel that’s essential for reaching the highest levels of musical expression. From rim shots, rolls, flams, and ghost notes on the snare to dramatic crash hits and sustained cymbal swells, every nuance is detailed, accurate, and ultra-smooth.
High-End Feel and Playability
When you sit down at the TD-25KV, you’ll enjoy expressive playability that rivals high-end V-Drums sets. There’s a full compliment of mesh-head pads for the legendary V-Drums feel, with positional sensing on the snare pad that provides subtle, organic tonal changes depending on where the pad is struck. The cymbals have a natural swinging motion and support chokes, bow/edge sounds on crashes, and bow/edge/bell sounds on the ride. Mounting on a standard hi-hat stand, the VH-11 V-Hi-Hat features open/closed motion and bow/edge sounds for executing traditional playing techniques to perfection. Last but not least is the KD-9 Kick Pad, which offers a natural-feel cloth head and rock-solid response.
Call Up Kits and Start Playing Immediately
With its no-nonsense interface, the TD-25KV’s sound module lets you enjoy playing great sounds for any music right away. Easy to grab while holding sticks, the large center dial allows you to quickly select kits based on music styles such as standard, rock, jazz, electronic, and others. After you’ve selected a style, press the dial to toggle between different kit variations. Next step? Start playing!
Customize Kits for Your Personal Style
The TD-25KV makes it simple to edit sounds to suit your playing touch or a specific style of music. Just hit a pad to call up the sound assigned to it, and then use the module’s knobs to select instruments and tweak tuning, muffling, and levels. Handy shortcuts greatly speed up tom editing, allowing you to assign sounds and change the muffling and tuning for all the toms at once. Your changes are saved automatically as you edit, eliminating the need to fuss with extra steps. If you don’t like your most recent tweaks, you can easily undo them and return to where the kit was at when you first selected it.
Play Along with Tracks and Record Audio Performances
Want a little jamming music to play along with? Just load up a USB memory stick with favorite WAV/MP3 songs and get lost in playing for hours. In addition to normal playback, you can loop sections you’d like to work on, or slow the playback speed to more easily learn fast fills and articulations. Alternately, you can plug a smartphone into the audio input and drum with songs from your music library or the web. It’s also possible to record your drumming performances (along with music playback) as audio files to a USB memory stick, offering a great way to evaluate your playing and share your drumming with friends and music producers. The sound module is equipped with a USB host port as well, providing a convenient connection for recording audio and MIDI data directly into DAW software.
