The Roland TD3SW Compact Electronic Drum Set combines the great sounds and Rhythm Coach training features of the TD-3 module with an improved, more natural feeling pad set. Ther TD35W is an ideal electronic drum kit that's perfect for students and others who want to explore e-drumming at a wallet-friendly price. Headphone and aux-in jacks let you practice in privacy anywhere and anytime.

The Roland TD-3 Percussion Module is loaded with 114 high-quality drum and percussion sounds arranged into 32 kits. The easy-to-use interface gets you into the V-Drum groove right away. Finding the right kit is simple”just use the Phrase Preview function to hear a short demo of each kit. 15 types of ambience and compression effects can be applied to every drum kit. The enhanced Rhythm Coach function helps you polish your timing, speed, and endurance using several exercises. With 9 trigger inputs, it's easy to expand the Roland TD-3S with more pads.

With Roland's digital drum pads and triggers, you get ultra-realistic feel and superb expressiveness at an easy price. The PDX-8 10" mesh snare pad offers enhanced feel in a precision dual-trigger design. PD-8 rubber pads support separate head/rim triggering.

The improved CY-5 hi-hat pad offers ultra-sensitive hi-hat control and improved playability. The FD-8 Hi-Hat Controller gives you more authentic sound with smooth transitions between open and closed.

The CY-8 cymbals offer swinging motion with great response, separate bow/edge triggering, and choke capabilities. Their look more closely resembles acoustic cymbals.

The KD-8 Kick Trigger Pad's vertical design not only gives you great feel compared to reverse-type triggers, but it also reduces trembling so you get nothing but solid kick sounds. The KD-8 will even accommodate double-bass pedals. Kick pedal is not included.

I've had this Roland drum kit for over 6 months now and it has met or exceeded all of my expectations. I was weary about the realistic feel of an electronic drum set, but this kit feel very real. I was also hesitant on spending so much on a kit when I could buy an acoustic set, but now I'm glad I went with an electronic kit. This kit is way more compact and allows me to practice at night or early morning without disturbing the neighbors. The kit feels very natural to play on. I actually forget that I'm hitting rubber pads. The sound quality is great, very realistic and has paremeters for adjusting your sound and pad sensitivity. The kick trigger feels very natural too, something that doesn't come easy with electronic drums. It reacts very well to soft and hard playing, dynamics come thru with great prescision. If you have the extra $$ get the TD6 for more sound options, but this kit does cover just about every usuable drum sound you could want. Or, you can save the $$ and get an extra crash cymbal like I did for even more rockin' fun. I mainly play hard rock/heavy metal, and this kit does it well. It real does feel just like playing a big acoustic kit, without any of the headaches.

All these reviews mention the limitations of the hi hat pedal. Correct!! My main complaint is that the volume of the clap lacks. I miss that in my playing with this kit. Also the snare trigger misses at times. Very awkward to transport, much more so than acoustics in my opinion. But I honestly recommend the TD-3 to anyone wanting to get into the Electronic world of Percussion. Nothing is perfect.

Too Pricey - Limited features

By mvp2010

from Seattle, WA

The pads and cymbals of this kit are all excellent. The TD-3 module, however, is so limited in terms of sounds and features. It somewhat defeats the purpose of getting an e-drum kit. The rack looks very slick, however, it is light duty (not meant for heavy gig use). Overall, I would NOT recommend this kit due to the price. If you are a beginner, go with one of the other better/cheaper e-kits (Yamaha DTXplorer or Alesis DM5 Pro). If you an experienced drummer, spend more and get the Roland TD-6 kit. By the way, you can also get a very nice acoustic kit for this price. If you must get the TD-3, however, consider getting a used set instead.

i don't know what to think

i spent two hours yesterday messing around with one of these. first i have to say that the drum module is a joke. also, the snare drum is almost impossible to get used to. i did like the rest though, i have to admit it is really fun to play. if i ever got this set i would add a third cymbal and i would only use it as a midi controller for battery and addictive drums.

Very Nice!!

As almost everyone says these are well worth the money. The high hat is either open or closed and that kinda sucks but overall I really like this kit. I bought some nice ear plugs instead of headphones and now I play along with CDs for hours!!

Very Limited

By Drumania64

from Los Angeles

I had this kit for about 3 months before switching to a Yamaha DTXplorer. This kit is very nice and the mesh snare is def a plus. The drawbacks are that the sounds are very limited and the ability to adjust the sounds are limited. The high hat would be the biggest drawback. The Yamaha doesn't come with the mesh pad but sound wise i find it much better. I also found this rack system to be kinda on the flimsy side. This kit has only a few sounds I would use but overall I would go for the DTXplorer for the same price. Oh yeah and stay away from Hart.

Excellent

By Algaroth

from Snellville, GA

This is a fantastic kit for at-home playing, especially if you live in an apartment or duplex. I bought these with high expectations, and they yield them - excellent kit! They play very well, and respond very well to any amount of input. The mesh snare is very smooth and easy to play; great for rudimentary fills. I also got Iron Cobra double bass pedals, and they DO fit the set easily. It just takes some positioning. The only con is the bass drum hardware - with double pedals, it tends to slowly creep, even on carpet. Everything else is excellent!

Save your money and buy a Roland

By Weezer

Ask me a question

I just recently moved into an apartment and realized that there would be no way that I could play my set, without the neighbors coming after me. After debating, I decided to get an electronic drumset. I thought about getting the Hart Dynamics Prodigy set, but I just didn't feel confident enough to get it. So I decided to get the Roland set instead and honestly after playing it for the past three days, it has made me question the use of acoustic drums. It is lightweight, easy to adjust, the sounds from the td-3 are highly realistic, and the feel of the mesh snare head and rubber pads for toms are also highly realistic, at least for me. The only issue that I have come across is the hihat feels off, but you could always upgrade to one of the more complex ones and the cymbals are something that you have to get use to. Another downside is that the td-3 only has one more extra trigger channel. So if your wanting to add more toms, forget it, you can't. The extra trigger channel is for an extra cymbal. So all in all, if you plan to have an enormous kit, the module wouldn't be the best choice, but overall, I'm happy with it and you definitely would be too.

from Falls Town, TX

Just got this kit today (6/11/08) and I love it! I have tried out many other electric kits....tho not impressed, realy like this one. I have always played on accoustic kits and this is pretty close. The feel of it was very nice with great reaction. Only thing I was not a fan of was the High Hat peddal. Not very responsive and was either open or closed....no in between. All around a great buy!!!

Reviewing the TD3

By Carl D. Cramblit

from Huntsville, Alabama

Carl From Second Hand Lincoln here,I bought this set to practice on at home and I well pleased with it. I wanted to program a snare to the hi hat pedal and it would not let me do this. bummer but there are other ways around that. I have also found myself playing in buildings that just were not built for live music if you know what I mean? so I started using my TD3 kit (drums only) I still use my real cymbols. This Kit has served me well and has paid for itself. it's a great investment compared to the price of the TD20 module and V-drums. plan on spending some time learning how to reassign sounds. overall it's great.
