OVERVIEW

Better pads, same affordable price!

With the TD-6S V-Tour Electronic Drum Set, Roland has upgraded one of its most popular kits. Features include an improved 10" mesh snare pad, gum rubber pads with dual triggering, improved vertical kick trigger, and more.

The heart of the TD-6S is the TD-6V Percussion Sound Module. Going beyond the flash black look and cool blue LCD screen, this 64-voice module is loaded with 1,024 of Roland's best drum and percussion sounds and 262 backing instruments. Kits and patterns arm you to play the latest music styles. Dual-trigger tom inputs permit rim shots and greater expressiveness. Big, luminous buttons make the TD-6V electronic drums easy to use and are very welcome when playing live music on darkened stages.

Upgraded pads and cymbals

The TD-6S includes Roland's popular PD-X8 mesh V-Pad with dual-triggering capability for playing separate snare and rim sounds. For the toms, the PD-8 rubber pads with dual-trigger support let you play rim shots. The PD-8 is also used for the hi-hat to produce expressive bow/edge sounds. The CY-8 cymbals offer swinging motion with great response, separate bow/edge triggering, and choke capabilities. Their look and feel closely resemble acoustic cymbals.

Upright kick trigger

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.

NOTE: Kick pedal not included.

Ultrasensitive hi-hat control

The FD-8 Hi-Hat Controller gives you more authentic sound with smooth transitions between open and closed.

I am a guitarist first, but have always loved to mess around on the drums. For the last month I have been putting together my own little studio to record seriously. I finally realized that using/manipulating drum loops was really inhibiting my songwriting and creativity so I decided to look for an e-kit so I could track all the drum tracks myself. I read a lot of reviews on different kits and went back and forth from music stores trying to find the best kit that had realistic sounds as well as feel in my price range. It came down to the Yamaha DTXPLORER and the Roland TD-6. I then found myself at a music store that had both kits set up to test. At first I went to the Yamaha since it was cheaper. To make a long story short, after playing the Yamaha and then jamming on the Roland TD6 I said to myself, "WOW I will dig up the extra $for the Roland." It really wasn't a choice for me. The TD6 module is great and the fact that the Roland cymbal pads can do the edge, middle and bell as well as stops sold me (and the sounds were a lot better on the Roland). The Yamaha can't do that and another thing that bothered me was the h-hat sounds on the DTXPLORER were horrible. I would reccomend spending/saving the extra $ for the Roland. I am by no means a good drummer, but the Roland TD-6 actually made me sound decent!

I thouroughly enjoyed this drumset for its settings, editing capability, and interface. I totally dig this set until it breaks. They installed screws that were too long in processor which cracked circuit board. Roland stated it was not covered in warranty. Nothing worse than a company that doesn't back up there product. Bought this product for overseas transportability and all I have is a nice looking electronic drumset with a processor in the warranty dept. for 3 months now debating why consumer is not responsible for processor assembly.

Great drum set

By Iceman-b-q7W

from Undisclosed

I just got this thing. It pretty much owns. I'm really a guitarist, but I was looking to expand my talents into drums. Being that I live in a rather small space, I had my mind on a electronic drum set. So I checked out a couple of rolands and yamahas. But for the price, and the feel. This one stood out to me the most. The only thing that kind sucks is the cymbals, you gotta hit them just right to get the sound you want. But other then that, its reallly good. And I like it even more because when I choose to record. All I gotta do is hook up two cables Left and Right main out. Instead of investing in a ton of money for mic's and a bigger mixer with an acoustic set. If you just looking for something to practice on and fiddle around with. I think this set and other roland sets are the best.

These drums rock!!!

By TheDon007

from Walnut Ridge, AR

This is my 2nd set of electronic drums, my first being the Yamaha DTXpress. This Roland V set-up is light, easy to assemble, sounds like a million bucks. The only problem I have had is with the drum mounting hardware. These are made of plastic and I have had to order 3 of them and they are a bit pricey for what they are, but other than that I would highly recommend them for churches, bands, and recording in a studio. Roland did good on this kit. You'll love'm...no doubt!

roland td-6

By Jordan-ez4mR

from Manchester

I've had this kit for a few months now and at first I was really impressed by it. I'd love getting tunes on my mp3 and playing along with them and it was great practice. I usually visit the music shop once every six months and the next time I visited it, I had a go of the td-20 and td-12 and WOW they were amazing. So i am now aiming to get a td-12. My advise is if your looking to get an electric drum kit, get either the td12 or td20 because to me, its all about the quality of the sound and feel of the drum kit.

New to drumming

By Rizzex

from Redmond, WA

Hi all, I've always wanted to play the drums (this is my first drum kit period) and I just moved into an apartment so a live kit was out of the question. Aside from the noise issue, my main reason for buying these was that I wanted a more live feeling to my electronic music and, for the life of me, drag and drop loops always sounded too stiff and mechanical. I always wondered how Amon Tobin managed to get so much energy into his drums and now I realize that this is a great way to do it. TD-6 comes with a bunch of preset drum kits to play with including some old-school sounding hip-hop and techno stuff as well as a lot of "live" samples. I plugged it into my computer's sound input and put on some synth loops and was able to make some pretty nice sounding beats right away. There are also a lot of fun things you can do like trigger synthesizers / softsynths via the drum kit's midi out. Playing synthesizer notes with drum pads makes for a very different creative experience I'm finding. Once I ditch my PC and get my Mac book Pro I am expecting to gain a lot more flexibility with my use of MIDI and the drum kit. Considering how much the upper-end versions of these kits cost (the ones with all-mesh heads) I think this is a pretty solid offering.

Roland TD-6SW V-Tour Electronic Drum Set

By Swirlsdaddy3000

from Jackson, MS

I got one of these to teach lessons on and take to college. For the portability of the kit and size, it was a great buy. I wouldn't play a gig with one unless I absolutely had to. The kit sounds great, but no electric drum set will ever sound as good, or authentic as a good sounding acoustic set.

Good set, happy with my purchase.

By nightofthelivingtim

from Maine

Great little set here. I picked it up with an extra cymbal for another crash. Sounds are great, easy to play and set up. My only beef is I have had a little bit of false triggering on my Tom 1 and Tom 2 with my ride. Other then that it?s pretty good.

Roland Drum Set

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I purchased this set a couple of months ago. I started using it for gigs 2 days later. I play for a country music show on weekends. The sound guys love it, the band loves, but most importantly the people that pay to listen love the sound as well, and isn't that what we are striving for. It only took about 30 minutes to tweak one of the sets I wanted to use and I was in business. I also have a Yamaha electronic set which I've had over 7 years and the Roland has much better feel and sound. I now use the Yamaha sound module and one pad with my acoustics for that cross stick sound. You won't get the oohs and aahs as a rack mounted acoustic kit, but you will sound good.
