Brain Power

The core of the TD-6KW kit is the TD-6V Percussion Sound Module, a 64-voice module that offers over 1,000 of Roland’s best drum/percussion sounds. Dual-trigger tom inputs allow for rim shots on toms. Large, luminous buttons and a cool, blue display make the TD-6V fun and friendly to use.

Upright Kick

Drummers will appreciate the TD-6KW’s upright kick drum pad. Its vertical design not only provides a better feel compared to reverse-type kick pads, but also reduces vibration so you get nothing but solid kick sounds. And here’s more good news: The kick pad can accommodate double-bass pedals.

PDX-8 V-Pad

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.

CY-5 Dual-Trigger Cymbal Pad

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.

MDS-6C Drum Stand

This attractive new rack is a great match for the TD-6KW. Sold separately, it features curved pipes and a gun-metal black finish.
