OVERVIEW

Compact, quality V-Drums for practice, learning and fun.

Roland's V-Drums are the world's most popular electronic drums for one reason: they're among the best. Blending superior sound, authentic feel, and rugged durability, each kit in the V-Drums lineup performs at the highest level, a testament to more than three decades of developing electronic drums. The compact TD-1K is no exception, delivering respected V-Drums quality in a space-saving kit that keeps up with you as your playing evolves.

Ideal for everyone that wants to enjoy drums at home, the TD-1K offers a wide selection of expressive drum kits for playing any musical style, plus fun onboard training and recording functions for building your skills and checking your progress. And as a Roland TD-1K owner, you're not just starting an exciting musical journey- you're also joining the V-Drums family, a group of discerning players that includes the world's finest drummers and percussionists.

15 Drum Kits for Playing Any Style of Music
An acoustic drum kit needs to be set up to play a specific style of music, so you're stuck with one type of sound. But that's not the case with the TD-1K-it includes 15 quality drum kits on board, so you can play any kind of music you want at the touch of a button, from rock and blues to jazz, world music, EDM, and beyond. At one practice session, you can rock hard with a heavy bottom-end sound, then instantly change kits to recreate the sound of your favorite band. Every kit reacts just like the acoustic and electronic kits they emulate, giving you a huge range of variety in one compact, standalone instrument.

Develop Authentic Techniques with Responsive Pads and Cymbals
Some drummers avoid electronic drums; worried they won't play like their acoustic counterparts. There's no need for concern with the Roland TD-1K-it fully supports essential acoustic playing techniques, which is especially important for beginners to learn to play correctly. Every drum sound offers a wide dynamic range and natural tone, and the pads provide a full range of natural expression. Unlike typical entry-level sets, the TD-1K's cymbals include the advanced expressiveness found in all TD-series V-Drums modules, including bow and edge sounds and support for cymbal chokes. The hi-hat reacts to the nuances of your footwork, bringing personality and character to your playing. Great drumming is all about feel, and so is the TD-1K.

Stay Motivated with Onboard Training Functions That Make Learning Fun
Built right into the TD-1K is a wealth of enjoyable functions to encourage learning, no matter whether you're teaching yourself to play, studying regularly with an instructor, or simply want to keep your skills polished. Think of this kit as your own live-in drum teacher and personal backing band, packed with tutorial features that develop technique, boost motivation, and help you get the most out of practice time. Play along with the onboard metronome to tighten your timing, and use Coach mode to build and maintain speed, stamina, and accuracy. Get ready for your first band by jamming with the internal songs in the sound module, or connect a smartphone or music player via the Mix In jack and drum along with your favorite tunes. With the onboard recording function, you'll get instant feedback of your progress as well as quickly capture and playback a new fill or creative groove.

Practice at Home with Headphones and Ultra-Quiet, Beater-Free Kick Drum
Traditional acoustic drums are extremely loud. Playing them at home is fun for you, but can be a problem for everyone else around! Quieter operation is a major benefit of electronic drums, and the Roland TD-1K is particularly quiet where it counts, thanks to the sound module's headphone jack and the noise-reducing design of the snare, tom, and cymbal pads. While many electronic drum kits annoy the neighbors as the beater strikes the kick drum, the TD-1K reduces volume with a special beater-less pedal design. Optional NE-10 Noise Eater units can be used under the kick and hi-hat pedals to further reduce noise transfer to other rooms below.

Fits in Your Practice Space and Adjusts to Your Playing Style
Inviting a supersize acoustic drum kit into your home is a big deal. Do you lose the spare room upstairs, or try and cram it into your living room? The space-saving TD-1K is a far more practical choice, fitting into the tightest living spaces with a stylish, modern look that lets life carry on around it. For added functionality, the sturdy, ergonomic drum rack is easily adjustable, allowing the drum positions to be set up for everyone from children to adults. In addition, the height of each cymbal and the angle of the snare pad can also be fine-tuned for your comfort and playing style. The TD-1K is perfect for students, but it's also a great choice for an experienced drummer who needs a kit for home practicing or backstage warm-up.

A Drum Set That Evolves with Your Playing
As your playing takes off, you don't want your drum kit to hold you back. The Roland TD-1K can grow with you, thanks to a range of optional extras that let the kit advance with you. You can add an extra cymbal with the additional OP-TD1C Cymbal Pad, or swap out the standard kick pedal for the KT-10 or KD-9 models used in Roland's more advanced V-Drums. With other accessories including the NE-10 Noise Eater, TDM-3 V-Drums Mat, and PM-03 Personal Drum Monitor, the TD-1K is an electronic kit that will go the distance.

Record on Your Computer Using One Standard USB Cable
The TD-1K is not just fun to play by itself-it's also a great way to make music with your computer. Included is a built-in USB-MIDI interface, making it simple to communicate with music software via just a USB cable, with no extra hardware needed. Maybe you'll transfer your playing into your computer-based recording software, capturing a live drum feel in your latest masterpiece. Or perhaps you'll use Roland's free V-Drums Friend Jam series applications, which offer jam tracks, practice features, and the ability to compete with V-Drums users across the planet. For more in-depth education, the powerful DT-1 V-Drums Tutor provides a fun, dynamic platform for learning notation and essential drum techniques. Whatever application you chose, the TD-1K is a drum kit that lets you go places.

Simple Operation Lets You Start Rocking in Minutes
If you think that electronic drums are complicated, think again-using the TD-1K is as simple as it gets. With its clear layout, the control panel lets you access all functions quickly and easily, and you can see info at a glance with the LED display and the metronome's flashing tempo indicator.

    Comments about Roland TD-1K Electronic Drumset:

    I've been playing the drums for just under a year now. I have become quite skilled and can play most things I want to learn. I have had this kit for a couple of weeks and I have to say, for such a low budget price, it's great! There is only one bad thing I can say about this drum kit. It's quite loud. Even though on the website it says it's quiet. I live in a terrace house meaning I am joined with 2 houses either side of mine. We asked neighbors if they could hear it and they said yes, it's not too loud for them but they can hear it. Also, people downstairs say it's very loud. Since it would be louder upstairs anyway, we put it downstairs to see if it was any quieter but no still quite loud. If I take play it through an amp or speakers and I put them on the highest volume, the drum sound of the drumming on the pads is louder than the actual sound. But it's not too much of a problem. This review is quite detailed because I have quite a lot of things to say about the kit. There are 15 kits on the drum kit. Personally, my favorite kit is number 2 because it's the closest sound to an acoustic rock kit. I also like 11 because it's like a drum and bass kit so if you were going to cover a new pop song or drum and bass song it would be perfect for that. There are definitely more pro's than con's on the drum kit. I wouldn't recommend using it for concerts since it doesn't sound very good through speakers. I've used 3 different types of speaker. A Roland Micro Cube GX Amplifier, a small Bluetooth speaker and a good sound bar. You do need to have them quite loud otherwise you won't be able to actually hear the kit but when you have it loud, the crash and the kick can be quite distorted. Overall, the drum kit is good for beginners and for professionals who just want a kit to practice with at home. 4/5.

      Comments about Roland TD-1K Electronic Drumset:

      I play a lot of different instruments fairly well, but I'm new to the drums. So I wanted an electronic drum kit that was affordable enough that I wouldn't be too put out if I was terrible at them, but was good enough that I'd have to replace it within a year were I to discover that I loved the drums. This set was perfect for me. To my non-expert but still musically competent ear, this kit sounds great. For someone with goals of jamming with her friends and maybe at most hitting up an open mic night or making some Youtube videos, I can't imagine replacing this kit before it breaks.

          Great beginner set. Love how little space it takes up but it plays like any bigger set of electric drums.
          Love just the pedal and not the arm to strike a pad. Solid, stays put when playing. Only bad thing is I didn't realize I'd need a new monitor/amplifyer to hear it well. My current one makes it sound cheap. But with headphones it sounds really good. now I need a new monitor! Ugh.

              I am comparing these to my old ventage ludwig drums.I might change my mind as I couldn't use the earphones that I ordered with the drums.
              They are replacing the earphones, so when they arrive , we'll see..
