    New Flagship V-Drums with SuperNATURAL Sounds


    Los Angeles, CA, January 19, 2012 — Roland is pleased to announce the

    TD-30KV  and TD-30K V-Pro® Series V-Drums®,  the new flagship kits in its industry-leading lineup of V-Drums  electronic percussion. Featuring SuperNATURAL sounds with Behavior  Modeling technology, improved V-Hi-Hat® and V-Pads™, and many more  enhancements, the TD-30KV and TD-30K kits offer serious players the  ultimate V-Drums experience for stage, studio, and beyond. 


    V-Drums  have long been recognized as the world’s most natural playing and  expressive electronic drums, thanks to patented mesh-head pads, advanced  triggering, and  a sound engine driven by Roland’s COSM modeling technology. Now, the  TD-30KV and TD-30K kits add in SuperNATURAL sounds and advanced Behavior  Modeling resulting in an instrument that reacts and responds to all the  subtleties, nuances, and dynamics of a drummer’s  technique. First developed for Roland’s synthesizers and pianos, these  leading-edge technologies deliver a quantum leap in realism in both  sound and expression for digitally emulating drums, percussion, and  other traditional instruments.


    At  the core of the TD-30KV and TD-30K kits is the TD-30 Drum Sound Module.  It’s loaded with brand-new sounds produced with the SuperNATURAL sounds  and Behavior  Modeling, including an ultra-realistic ambience feature that emulates  overhead mics and room sounds. There are 1100 instruments and 100 drum  kits onboard the TD-30. Like all Roland TD series modules, all internal  drum kits are user programmable for creating  customized settings and kits.


    The  TD-30 features the familiar, intuitive V-Drums V-Edit interface, and  includes metallic parts on the panel to enhance visibility in low  lighting. The rear panel  is stocked with trigger inputs for the pads, along with multiple audio  outputs and MIDI I/O. Two different USB ports allow users to play audio  files from convenient flash media, as well as connect directly to  computers for MIDI over USB.    


    Designed  as the ultimate V-Drums stage kit, the TD-30KV offers unprecedented  playability with enhanced pads and cymbals, as well as striking  onstage presence with new Black Chrome shell wraps. The snare and four  tom V-Pads (PD-128S-BC; PD-128-BC x 2; and PD-108-BC x 2) feature updated  rim sensors for ultra-accurate  dynamics detection and rim shot depth, while a new V-Hi-Hat (VH-13-MG)  brings high-resolution sensing for improved playability. The VH-13-MG,  along with

    the  CY-14C-MG and CY-15R-SV V-Cymbals, come in an attractive new metallic  gray finish. Rounding out the TD-30KV is the KD-140-BC V-Kick and  MDS-25 chrome-finish drum rack.


    Equipped  with standard pad components, the TD-30K gives drummers a pro-level  recording set with the expressiveness of the new TD-30 sound module. The  kit’s three  toms feature the new PDX-100 V-Pad, which offers a 10-inch mesh head  with a shiny metal hoop, vertical and horizontal mounting options, and a  lightweight yet durable design. Other components include the KD-120BK  V-Kick; PD-125BK

    V-Pad  for the snare; VH-11 V-Hi-Hat; CY-12C, CY-13R, and CY-15R V-Cymbals;  and the new MDS-12V drum rack, which includes an internal cable  management system for  a clean, professional look.


    The TD-30KV and TD-30K V-Pro Series V-Drums will be available in April 2012. For more information, visit www.RolandConnect.com.
