When you’re serious about drumming, you need a kit to match your
ambition. The V-Drums TD-17 series lets your technique shine through, backed up
with training tools to push you further. Combining a TD-50-class sound engine
with newly developed pads results in an affordable electronic drum kit that’s
authentically close to playing acoustic drums – accurately mirroring the
physical movement, stick coordination and hand/foot control that every drummer
needs. Meanwhile, an array of built-in coaching functions will track your
technique, measure your progress and increase your motivation. Becoming a
better drummer is still hard work, but the TD-17 can help you get there.
The Essential Tools to Improve Your Drumming
First thing’s first: drummers should be able to keep a solid beat
before moving on to the exciting stuff. But mastering the basics is exciting
too, as it provides a solid foundation for building your skills, not forgetting
that tracking your progress is highly motivating too. The TD-17 module includes
a Coach Mode to support your daily exercise regime. You can warm up, develop
your sense of groove, tempo and timing, and even work on your stamina – all
with a score that tells you how you’re doing.
Preparing To Play Live
When rehearsing, it’s important to play with the same familiar drum
sounds that you’ll be using on stage. The TD-17 includes a variety of
expressive modelled drum sounds inherited from the flagship TD-50, so you’ll be
sure to find the perfect drum sound as you prepare for the gig.
Performance under Pressure, For Years to Come
Roland V-Drums are built to be reliable – from the sound module, to the
pads, right down to the pedals; each component must deliver, across every
scenario and in every performance. The pads and pedals used in the TD-17 series
are engineered to take a beating, but their playability also endures. And as
your skills and ambitions grow, you can expand your TD-17 by adding an extra
crash cymbal or second snare – safe in the knowledge that you’re using the same
durable components favored by pro drummers.
