20 years of
Since the TD-10 was launched in July 1997, V-Drums development has focused on three core elements – pads and interface, sensor technology, and sound source. Over the years, the V-Drums business has grown considerably and is now a major category within Roland, catering for drummers of all levels, from young players just starting out to seasoned pro-drummers with many years of experience.
The pinnacle of V-Drums development – the TD-50 Series – was launched in September 2016, packed with innovations that will set the standard for others to follow. Brand-new modelling technology (Prismatic Sound Modeling) is paired with the industry’s first multi-sensor system for snare and ride cymbal. And with the option to use a full-size 22” kick drum, the TD-50 is a kit that looks, plays and sounds just like its acoustic brethren. The ability to import your own samples and layer them over the onboard sounds lets you create completely new sounds and tap into the potential of hybrid drums, building a signature kit that is yours alone.
We constantly strive to push past the limits of technology, and bring you kits that are ever more expressive, while remaining affordable. And most important of all, we truly believe that now and in the future, V-Drums will continue to help shape what it means to be a modern drummer – in body and in spirit.
