Mid-Range V-Drums Powered by SuperNATURAL!
The groundbreaking TD-30 V-Drums kit was the first in history to offer SuperNATURAL sounds and Behavior Modeling. Today, the middle range of the V-Drums family inherits this acclaimed technology with the debut of the TD-15KV and TD-15K V-Tour kits. Drummers can now experience flagship SuperNATURAL performance, authenticity, and expression in a more affordable and compact format.
TD-15 Drum Sound Module with SuperNATURAL
Powered by SuperNATURAL technology, the TD-15 Drum Sound Module provides outstanding playability, superb expressiveness, and pro-level operation. Powerful and affordable, this V-Drums sound engine is ideal for both the live stage and recording studio.
New Lightweight V-Padâ¢ PDX-100 for Snare and Floor Tom
As the snare and floor tom, the TD-15KV equipped with the new PDX-100, a lightweight 10-inch mesh head V-Pad with an advanced dual-trigger sensor, a metal rim hoop, a tensionable head, and a compact casing. For perfect positioning, the dual-mounting capability increases your setup versatility.
Attractive Chrome-look V-Pad for Rack Toms
The PD-85BK 8-inch dual-zone V-Pad for toms features Roland's acclaimed dual-triggering technology, resulting in more consistent and accurate sensing between the head and rim. Built tank-tough and ready to take a pounding, the mesh head V-Pad sports a cool black finish with chrome bracket. Used in conjunction with the TD-15 sound module, the pad lets you play rimshots, and the sound will change naturally depending on the strength of your stroke.
Superb Hi-hat Expressiveness with V-Hi-HatÂ®
With eyes closed, drummers will think they're playing a regular two-piece hi-hat. But examine the innovative VH-11 floating hi-hat, and you'll see that it's actually comprised of one floating cymbal pad atop a fixed lower base. Great for fast setup and easy transport, the VH-11 mounts on conventional hi-hat stands, and provides a similar playing feel to a two-piece hi-hat.
*Hi-hat stand not included
Acclaimed V-Cymbals for Crash and Ride
With optimized weight-balance and sensitivity, the CY-12C for crash provides a natural swinging motion and accurate triggering for consistent crash performance, including choke control. As a ride cymbal, the CY-13R offers an enlarged bow area and a realistic playing feel, with accurate three-way triggering for edge, bow and bell.
Natural-Feel Kick Pad
With new mechanics and a cloth-designed bass drum head, the KD-9 provides great feel, dynamic response, accurate triggering and solid playability even with using a double pedal. It's also easy and quick to set up.
*Kick Pedal not included
Custom Stand for V-Tour V-Drums
Designed for the V-Tour series, the MDS-9V is a stable four-leg drum stand with adjustable ball clamps for cymbal arms/snare mount and tilt mechanism for hi-hat mount arm. You can adjust the position of the cymbals and toms freely for the ideal ergonomic setup.

Comments about Roland TD-15KV-S V-Tour Series Electronic V-Drum Kit:
I must keep my acoustic set at someone else's home where we rehearse, because acoustic drums are equivalent to eviction from my townhouse. For several years I had been practicing on pad at home, but paradiddle will not propel you too far. Eventually the pent up anger and irresistible itch to practice and improve on full set at home have boiled to the point where I decided to invest my scant savings into this expensive toy.
... And the toy has not disappointed.
A teacher on Drumeo.com has brilliantly stated about electronic drums: "they just make you practice more and more". I will say the same about my Roland TD-15 KV. It's simply phenomenal that I can put on headphones and play for hours without annoying anyone else and destroying my ears as acoustic drums do. Roland TD-15 module provides plenty of ways to adjust volume for overall set and individual sources of sound: hats, toms, snare, cymbals, etc...
Overall, I am very satisfied with this model. The feel of sticks on drums and cymbals is very close to acoustic drums, and sensitivity of playing surfaces is superb. Please note that these are still electronic drums, and they will not sound exactly like acoustic set; however, the difference between the two, I could say, is very similar to difference between a quality acoustic piano and quality digital piano.
My few gripes about this instrument are:
- KD-9 bass pad feels somewhat harsh, little less responsive, and less stable than acoustic bass drum. The acoustic sound of beater hitting the pad is also much louder that the rest of TD-15 surfaces. To improve the feel and damp the room sound, I replaced the hammer on my DW 9000 pedal with fluffy old-school Vater Long Range Bomber Beater. In the future I definitely plan to replace it with more realistic, much quieter, and much more sturdier models of bass pads by Roland, which are used on more expensive models of V-Drums.
- Hi-hat requires precise and very consistent stick/pedal action to sound even, especially when playing with sticks while opening/closing pedal. Acoustic hi-hats are more forgiving in this sense. But I look at it from the positive perspective: every drummer must learn to play as accurately as possible. FYI, I use DW 9500 Hi-Hat stand and it works great.
- I have tried playing this kid through someone else's mid-range stereo speakers and was amazed how much better this kit sounds in headphones. If you plan to use the room sound, be ready to invest into expensive, powerful stereo monitoring system.
I am quite satisfied with 50 factory kit sounds in TD-15 module. Some are cheap, some are good, and some are very good. Very luckily, you can tweak and customize these sounds and even entire kits in many ways.
I have not yet tried the recording aspect, but it's definitely coming because I plan to collaborate on recording project with my friends in another city. Bottom line, V-Drums are much cheaper and easier to record that acoustic.
Overall, I am happy with the investment. The mere fact that quality electronic drums such as TD-15 allow many drummers to enjoy a quality practice literally at any time they wish is already priceless. ... And you ears will also love this purchase :))
