The Most Affordable V-Drums Upgraded

Just as the V-Tour line is getting an upgrade this year, so too is the V-Compact series. The TD-3KW takes over for the current TD-3KV, and features Roland’s new PDX-8 snare mesh V-pad and CY-5 hi-hat cymbal pad. The most affordable kit in the V-Drums family now performs even more like its bigger V-Drums brothers.

Improved V-Pad for Snare

Roland’s newest mesh V-Pad (PDX-8) offers an expanded 10-inch rim for more comfortable and quiet rim-shots, as well as separate head and rim triggering for authentic performance.

Improved Cymbal Pad for Hi-Hat or Splash

The newly designed cymbal pad (CY-5) features a 12-inch playing zone and swing movement for more drummer-friendly triggering. The pad also provides separate bow and edge triggering. The CY-5 can be also used as an additional cymbal pad, such as a splash, on V-Drum kits.
