OVERVIEW

Fun to Play, Comfortable to Use, and Great for Practice.

The Roland TD4S is an electronic drum set that is a pleasure to play. With Roland's patented mesh V-Pad snare, the TD4S drum set is ideal for practice, thanks to its Mix in function, Coach Mode, and Quick Rec. Roland TD-4S electronic drums are also a great choice for the project studio, with improved sound quality and expressiveness, and MIDI output for sequencing or triggering other sounds.

TD-4S Drum Module
With 4 times the wave memory of its predecessor, the Roland TD-4S Drum Module is loaded with great drum and percussion instruments and kits. Drum kits can be customized with virtual tuning and muffling for the kick, snare, and toms. Natural ambiance effects can be adjusted as well.



Custom Controls

Drum sounds onboard the Roland TD-4S can be customized to suit your personal style. Just like with a real acoustic drum set, the TD-4's kick, snare, and toms can be tuned up or down quickly across a wide range. The amount of muffling can be user-customized as well, from '70s-style choked funk to open-cannon stadium rock.

Coach Mode
The Roland TD-4S is equipped with Roland's acclaimed Coach Mode, which helps you build speed, stamina and accuracy. Five skill-building exercises are onboard, including the new Warm Ups that lets you practice different exercises consecutively for 5, 10, or 15 minutes. The Tempo Check also helps you keep consistent time by lowering the metronome volume when you are playing accurately or vice versa, and raising the click volume when you are playing out of time.

Quick REC
The TD-4S drum set's "Quick REC" feature allows you to immediately record and play back your performance. It's a great tool for listening objectively to what you've played, and charting your progress. And don't forget the TD-4's built-in metronome for keeping yourself in time. If you record with the internal metronome on, the TD-4 Electronic Drum Set can even evaluate your accuracy afterward during playback.

FEATURES
  • Center mounted TD-4 sound module
  • Wave-expanded sound module with 125 instruments and 25 kits
  • Patented mesh head for the snare
  • Velocity sensitive toms and cymbals with choke capability
  • Tuning and Muffling for the kick, snare, toms can be adjusted via the buttons and dial on the front panel
  • Coach Mode with new exercises such as Warm Ups and Tempo Check for building your accuracy and endurance
  • Quick Rec function for recording your performance with just one button
  • Mix In connector for playing along with external audio sources
  • Compact, lightweight, and stable drum stand
  • Cable harness and DB-25 connector for fast and clean cable connection
  • Includes:
  • (1) TD-4 Percussion Sound Module
  • (1) PDX-8 Mesh Snare Drum Pad
  • (3) PD-8 Dual-Trigger Tom Pads
  • (2) CY-8 Dual-Trigger Cymbal Pads
  • (1) CY-5 Dual-Trigger Cymbal Pad

I previously owned a Roland TD-12 V-Drum kit and sold it to pay some bills last year -- I was really sorry I parted with that kit until I saw reviews of the new TD-4S. I saw demos of it on the Roland site. I just had to get one because the price was right and it looked like Roland came up with a much better rack system than the TD-3S predecessor.In short, I've had this kit for a little over two weeks and it rocks -- dare I say that I like it even better than the TD-12 kit which retails for 3X as much? I like the hi-hat better on this kit than the VH-11 and find it more responsive. I also thought that I would not like having the rubber pads after having an all-mesh setup, but I actually like them BETTER and get more stick action. I don't mind having only 25 pre-configured kits because you can still customize your own sets as much as you want. I've also messed with the metronome and rhythm coach feature -- all good.A couple of things to mention -- the control unit in the center under the toms is a little hard to access and the various jacks should have larger type so you can see what's what -- however, I believe you could move the module to a different place on the rack if you wanted (the cables seem long enough to do so). Also, I highly recommend a good drum rug because the hi-hat pedal and bass pedal will start to creep as you play. If you are on the fence about buying this kit -- I'd say it's money well spent for Roland quality.

I bought one of these to keep the noise down for my aspiring son since he has a new sister. It is a good toy for 3-12 year olds to learn on. Even then, though, perhaps ought to buy something less expensive. You are only buying the name on this one -- although it is still made in China.

My new Roland TD-4 Kit

By Dustin-MfsgK

from California

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

I have had my kit now for about 5 days. I'm a guitar player but as a hobby I record my own material and figured why not have a bass and drum set and bring it all together. While I have ZERO experience to draw from to give an educated review of this set...a few friends who are drummers and who've played for many years sat down and gave my set a try and they were impressed...most especially with the realistic feel of the snare. The different pre-programmed kits sound good, but I plan to use sample software because I'm looking specifically for a hard rock/metal sound and the Steven Slate Drums software seems to deliver that. The only extras you need to buy are a throne and a bass kick pedal. I got a double pedal by Pacifica? which seems to work just fine so far. Overall I'm impressed with my new toy.

Roland TD4 drum set

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

I just got my kit in the mail last week, and I am very happy with it. Set up was pretty quick only took about 45 minutes and that's because digital drums are new to me. This thing will keep you playing for hours. I invited a friend to come over and play bass along with me, and we were amazed at how well you could jam with the drums at a lower volume. Pull the trigger if you've got the dough, you will be happy you did.

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

I've had this set for about a week now and I can not get enough of it! I've been playing acoustic drums for aout 10 years now and this is my first electronic set. I love the rack system, the pads are durable, there are only 25 modules but I mostly use it for the acoustic drum sounds anyway. This set was worth every penny I spent on it. I can't wait to add a 2nd cymbal to his set!

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

Love the samples! Seems like there's enough sounds to satisfy most. I now have the kit for about 6 weeks now and decided to use it with a small mixer so I add additional rack effects while playing along with a cd. One rack enhancer I've been using is a BBE Sonic Maximizer. It turns a great sounding kit into a miracle! -Drums are more explosive and cymbals are crisper. I also purchased an additional CY-8 cymbal pad and an inexpensive Pulse cymbal stand because I wanted to add another crash cymbal. Actually, you can assign any sound to it, so if I want a cowbell, I've got it. This has got to be one of the best kits available.

Best buy in electronic drums

By Korywithak44

from New Jersey

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

Pros: quality of the rack and setup, cool pre-set kits to choose from, module is very easy to use, pads are high quality (I've been playing it for a few months with no problems thus far), mesh snare is amazing.Cons: Double bass pedal is not completely compatible (if you center the beaters perfectly, you can make them almost as loud as the rest of the kit, however there is a mixer function which allows you to adjust the volume of each pad versus all the others), doesn't have as many pre-set kits and sounds as comparable sets, module location is not great being right under the toms (and the length of the wires doesn't allow you to mount it anywhere else).

Great for beginner to intermediate

By stilldrumming

from Chicago area

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

I did a lot of research and compared all the other brands to Roland and decided that they have the reputation for the best electronic drums for a reason. Everything from setup to learning the controls to playing was as easy as it gets. Roland even offers pre-recorded songs you can download for free to your MP3 player to play along with. The only reason I gave the features review below a 5 was due to accessing the controls on the module. Once I got all the pads set to where I liked them it was a bit of a hassle to reach all the controls as some were hidden behind the toms. It may be totally different for you so don't let that deter you from checking this unit out. It is definitely a quality set.

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

This drum set, the features are excellent, but i am just quite fussy abt it, firstly, there shld be 2 normal ride programmed inside instead of one medium ride and lite ride, there shld be also a dark ride, same as the hi hat, there shld be a dark hi hat as well, secondly, i tried shifting the pipe which holds the module above the 2 pads and the whole rack is not sturdy which resulted in complains from my neighbours, but other than that, module screen is great, pads are great also, overall good value for $$ drum set.

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

I bought this set about a month ago, and I am extremely pleased with my purchase. It is well worth the money, and a great set for people like me who need to play drums in a dorm or play quietly in a garage at 3 in the morning.Pros: - Relatively inexpensive for an electronic set- Mesh snare- Realistic pads for hi hat and 2 other cymbals (w/ choke capability)- 25 different kits- Versatility and ability to create your own set sounds- Easy, easy setup, like drum setup for dummies easy- You can play quietly in a small space!!!Cons:- Not many good preset sets- Rubber toms (not a big deal though, you can still roll on them pretty comfortably and quickly)- Kick pad doesn't work well with double pedals; not loud enough when beaters are off-center- Kick pad moves alot and can be weak and aggrivating at times, esp. w/ heavy double bassHowever, the benefits of the set realllly outweigh the hassles involved with it so I'd definitely reccomend it to anyone that needs an electronic.HOWEVER i must add that electronics shouldn't be your first choice; they don't hever have as much feel as acoustic sets, and you look and feel like a clown playing on them, esp. if its at a gig. But, if you do need an electronic set, this is the one to get.

works great for me

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

I played acoustic drums long ago, but even I know that acoustic drums aren't suitable for a 3rd-floor apartment. I bought the TD-4K (since discontinued?) at Christmas time 2009 and I like it a lot. It was easy to set up, no electronics problems (in fact no problems at all), but it took forever to get everything adjusted right. (And beware: even though I used headphones all the time, the neighbors downstairs started complaining on the very first night. A 3/4-inch foam exercise mat didn't do the trick, but then I found at the Roland forums plans for a simple platform made from a piece of plywood resting on a couple dozen tennis balls. (Google "roland noise tennis balls".) I used the single-piece of plywood variation: it cost about $35 to build, $20 for a 4'x4' piece of 3/4-inch plywood and $15 for tennis balls, and apparently it works. At least, it's been a couple of weeks and the -- woman -- downstairs hasn't complained.)I can't tell you if it's good for recording, barrooms, or MTV. I can tell you I'm having fun. That's 100% goal achievement.

Very good enough for my needs and expectations

By Mr. Man-QXJf5

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

I bought this kit with the intention of using this as a boredom eliminator drum kit. And it does have a lot of fun in it. This is my first drum set and so far I am very satisfied with it, and so far I dont have any issues regarding its operation and build quality. Only my neighbor downstairs have a complain since the kick pedal transfer a lot of mechanical energy to the floor that resulted a thud in our neighbors living room. I like the sound quality and the responsiveness of the entire system. I dont have ways in comparing it to other kits since this is the only drum I ever played. I am thinking of upgrading the kick pad into a mesh kick pad. I wish it came with an extra cymbal that I can use for a Ride cymbal. But eventually I added CY-12R/C to the set. I used it one time in a church worship service. And a lot of people were impressed by it. Our pastor is planning to buy one for the church. I can say that this is a good product and I believe it is far more better than the equivalent yamaha drum kit based on my impressions.

Cheap for a Roland

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

I've owned this set for a week; and I must say, it certainly met my expectations. I was debating whether to get a higher end Yamaha, or some other brand; but I settled on going for a lower end Roland. So far, it's fantastic: incredibly responsive, very good sound, easy to set up, and you can customize the hell out of this thing. I'll definitely be writing another review in a year or so, after I've beaten this thing for a while. I'm looking forward to seeing how it holds up!

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

Well to start off, it was packaged very securely and everything looked like it hade never been touched before!Now about the actuall drums, they are fantastic so if you are even thinking about getting these drums get them and make you have a decent set of head phones cause they rock really nicely with them and one last thing is that if you are thinking twice because of the drum positioning then just forget about that because everything is very reachable!

High hat problems

By Jason--8w2B

from Kentucky

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

I borrowed a new set for a recording project. The snare sounds were really nice. Tom sounds not too bad. Kick sounds were limited but very useable. The only problem I found with this kit was the hats mistriggered quite often. They don't accept anything faster than 8th notes. I actually plan to buy one of these kits in the near future. I plan to use the kick and brain in conjunction with my acoustic set and cymbals for recording. However, for latin percussion or practice time, this set is fine the way it is. Definitely worth the money.

Amazing drum kit

By MistyMarionBand

from Puerto Rico

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

I waited one and a half year to write a review of this amzing drum kit and I can tell you that the experience has been great. No problems so far although I give it a lot of use and abuse. People are always amazed of how good this sounds. I have upgrade my kit with the extra cymbal and changed the snare (to PD of 10") and the toms to the PD-85 (all used), so it's now all mesh and the feel is incredible. Also, I found on the internet the center tube (I bought a pair of 20") to give better support in the middle and had no problems with the lenght of the cables. Th 25 presets is all you need because you can customize them with the 125 sounds in the module ( I only use two of them). We recorded our first album with this kit. However, we couldn't get the MIDI to work on ProTools, so we recorded by adjusting the mixer.

Awesome Kit

By Drummerboy5

from Atlanta

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

This set is built to last. Everything is very durable and I've been playing on them for about 4-5 hours a day for 3 days already. This kit has so many options to do. Plus I think it's more fun to play than an acoustic kit. With a good pair of headphones (which I have and you should too), this kit sounds great! The snare is the best part. It feels better than my regular snare with the cymbals and toms not too far behind. If you have the money, I would upgrade the toms to the mesh ones but if you don't (like me), then don't worry about it. The included rubber toms are great too. I'm planning to add an extra cymbal to make this kit even better. This set is worth every penny.

When you cant have an acoustic.

By David-mxD-7

from New York City, NY

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

For a little background I moved to NYC 5 years ago, I came from PA where I have a small studio with two acoustic drum kits. The drive for me just to play the drums was way to long and the pads just were not cutting it. I started shopping about 4 years ago and just could never pull the trigger (sell out to the electric). I came across this kit and thought that the features would do my other kits justice, I was right. Pros: Easy to setup, easy to tune and create your own kit (I don't really like any of the prefab kits), snare feels great and great for an apartment. Cons: I wish the cymbal mounts had another pivot point, the module needed to get mounted on my snare arm because of my tom position (which I actually like better). The round bar to mount on makes you feel like you are going to break the clamp as you tighten it. The double-beater is OK, but a single beater sounds best.

Comments about Roland TD4S Electronic Drum Set:

The Roland TD-4S is a great way to get into the electronic drum world. I have had an acoustic set for many years, but I wanted to be able to play and not worry about the noise level. I chose the TD-4 because it is compact, has plenty of nice features, and has Roland quality. It is a perfect starter kit with room to upgrade with other Roland products. PLUS chokable cymbals!! Great for practice and for quick studio recording / ideas.
