Amazing Sound Quality and Variety

When it comes down to it, an electronic drum system is only as good as its sounds. The TD-8 serves up 1,286 high-quality sounds, comprised of 1,024 drum and percussion sounds and 262 backing instruments; COSM-based V-Editing allows you to precisely tune and shape drum size and depth, head type and tuning, muffling, and snare strainer adjustment. And all this is enhanced with expressive positional sensing capability, triggering different sounds based on the location of the pad hit.

A "Drummer-Friendly" Interface

The TD-8 was designed from the ground up with live performance and easy operation in mind. It incorporates a large backlit LCD with helpful graphics, luminous rubber buttons, and an angled module design that makes operation fast. The module also sports 700 preset patterns, which are great for practice or just playing along. And of course, it's expandable for adding or upgrading up to 12 pads and cymbals.
