Unique features that only V-Drums provide

The TD-9 beautifully conveys the dynamics and nuance of your playing with features such as 3-way triggering on the V-Cymbal ride and support for rim shots on toms and snare. Other features enhance performance, such as the USB connector, which lets you incorporate audio data (WAV/MP3 files) — great for “one-man-band type” performances. You can also use the USB port to save data externally. The TD-9 is equipped with a metronome function and a Mix input to enable practice with songs from CD or digital-audio players. Inputs are also provided for adding pads and triggers* for a personalized setup.

Easy-to-use interface with Scope function

With its clean, friendly panel layout, the TD-9 is a breeze to use at home and onstage. In addition to its illuminated buttons, the stylish front panel contains a large and easily readable LCD that displays sound, tempo, and other vital information. When the Scope function is activated, the LCD graphically shows the timing of your performance. With both visual and aural reference, you can more effectively cultivate and maintain the rudimentary skills essential to drumming.

*While the TD-9 uses a dedicated pad-input connector cable, there are also separate expansion jacks for two other trigger-input types (CRASH2, AUX).
