This review compares my Simmons SD7PK electronic drum set with my recent purchase of the Roland TD-4KP V-drum set. First off, it is disappointing that the design engineers in both companies gave no thought to the 10% of us who play left-handed. However, both sets can be assembled "backwards" without too much frustration.

The Simmons set is reasonably priced and is a decent beginner's set. My complaints about it were the lousy high-hat, and the dead spots in the tom heads. Also, the kick tower had to be restrained with baling wire, otherwise it would "walk" forward, even on carpet. The advantages of it, besides its light weight and portability, were the "variability" in setting it up – various heights, angles, positions of the drum pads. If desired, you could easily duplicate the setup of your acoustic drums.

The Roland TD-4KP which costs twice as much as the Simmons is, unfortunately, not twice the quality. If your priority in an electronic drum set is lightweight, tiny "footprint," and extreme portability, this set is for you. It is simple to pick up and carry around the house, through doorways, etc., with ease. Folded, it takes up virtually no space at all. The sound is good, and the high-hat, although not quite as good as a "real" high-hat is excellent. Much better than the Simmons.

However, the simplicity of this Roland design handicaps the drummer who wants "variability" in setting it up. For example, the snare drum cannot be raised high enough for a 6 foot tall drummer, in my opinion. I'm sitting with my seat down and my thighs horizontal, but the snare is still a bit too low. Also, the snare cannot be adjusted so that it is immediately behind Tom 1. Rather, the snare is kinda "between" Tom 1 and Tom 2. Take a look at the photograph in the Musician's Friend catalog, and you will see what I mean. Further, if I raise the high-hat to a sufficient height above the level of the snare drum, the Tom 1 is raised also, to a difficult height above the snare. Then you have to raise Tom 2 to the same awkward height, so that they are even with each other.

But if these minor annoyances don't bother you, this is probably an excellent purchase. To do better, you'd have to spend a lot more on an electronic drum set, and I wasn't willing to do that. A small footprint and extreme portability (and a better high-hat), at a moderate price were my priorities.

The sounds are quality. The pads are responsive for those subtle flavors. I expected more of an array of sounds. The amount of sounds are a bit limited. Handling the containment of the wires and keeping them in tow is not as easy as on the video. Was hoping the TD4 had at least 4 outputs....only has 2. But I am happy with the performance and size of it. Glad I bought it. BUT....I think the frame is too heavy. It could be lighter. They made the frame out of metal,,,instead of a really sturdy plastic. It's not that easy to carry up and down stairs. The Roland bag should be better for the amount of money it costs. If your talkin portable....the bag should have wheels and a pull out luggage type handle. The drums and the bag could be a lot more portable.

Comments about Roland V-Drums TD-4KP Portable Electronic Drum Set:

It's a great product if you don't have a lot of space. It's incredibly compact and very easy to set-up. It only took just over an hour to do the set-up. With headphones all someone on the outside can hear is tapping, so if you are in an environment where you don't want to make a lot of noise, it's perfect. I had to adjust the sound as best that I could. You must hit the pads directly on center for best sound. There is no give in that manner. You can adjust to your own height and positions. The high hat has no swivel, and the pads only go to a certain height. It would be good if they could go a bit taller. The high hat and the bass need louder sounds. All in all a great product that I am happy with.

    I rehearse with 3 different bands at 4 different rehearsal spaces and you cant beat the lightweight mobility, sturdiness and the excellent quality sound that one already expects from Roland. Easy to set up and break down after you get the hang of it.

    Comments about Roland V-Drums TD-4KP Portable Electronic Drum Set:

    I have Mapex Saturn's, a Roland TD-30kv and now this set. It's perfect, I leave it set up so I can practice. Headphone output is very low so u need isolation headphones or a headphone amp. The cymbals do move quite frequently but not a deal breaker for me. The first thing I did was replace the snare with a mesh head. Great sound! Great portability. I also bought the case, haven't used it yet.

      Comments about Roland V-Drums TD-4KP Portable Electronic Drum Set:

      I purchased this kit used with an Alesis drum monitor to replace an entry-level set I was using. Great sounding kit for home recording. My "studio" is small so the size of this kit works well. It has a stereo output that makes recordings sound really nice. The portability factor is really cool, although I have to admit that when I fold it up I pull up the video from youtube on my phone to get it right. There's a process for sure, but once it's folded you can haul it under your arm.

      Every pad is completely adjustable for volume, sensitivity and sounds. It will record what you play so you can hear it back, helping me immensely (I'm kind of a noob to drumming). I think it would do very well in smaller venues where space is an issue. My drummer buddies that have played it really like it.

      Is it a pro kit? Not really. It fills a niche and does it extremely well. I think it would be an excellent choice for someone starting out in drumming, or for someone who doesn't have a ton of space for a full kit.

      Really going to enjoy this kit. I'm older +55 and this was what I was looking for. Love the Roland brand and have a 30KV, but it has gotten heavy for me to drag around. Only negative....bass pedal pad can rotate if not secured extremely tight. I worry about that deteriorating over time.

        We have a small church so this kit is perfect for our stage set-up since it is compact. Even though it is compact it sounds awesome! We are very pleased with the high quality sound it produces as well as the sensitivity of the pads and cymbals. It is very versatile and give you tons of options with the tone, sound and volume.

            Comments about Roland V-Drums TD-4KP Portable Electronic Drum Set:

            This set lives up to all expectations so far. My only issue is that I was caught off-guard to discover that there was no kick pedal included. Re-reading the description shows that it accurately only states that the kick drum PAD is included. However the picture shows a kick pedal--it really ought to have a disclaimer somewhere: (* kick pedal not included)

            One thing that I'm really disturbed about....I'm having creeping/ sliding problem on the side where the kick is. That is inexcusable!! This set is not just for amatuers...professionals play this set too! It should be slide proof! I shouldn't have to devise ways to keep it from sliding!
