Different between Roland TD-25K and TD-25Kv

Roland may be the top dog when it comes to beautifully playable, intensely fun, awesome sounding electronic drums, but they sure are terrible at naming things.

The TD25 series is a really exciting addition to the range of Roland V-Drums, so let’s blast away all that confusion about Ks and Vs and +Ps and actually just talk about the difference between the kits and why you might want one:

(TL/DR: The more expensive TD25KV has bigger, better toms and a 2nd crash cymbal.)

What they BOTH haveThe TD25K is the basic kit, with smaller toms and only 1 crash cymbal.

  • They both use the Roland TD25 module, with advanced SuperNATURAL sound engine based on the flagship TD-30, so have sound quality and expressiveness equivalent to the top-of-the-line V-Drums.

  • Simple, logical interface for easily swapping and customizing each drum and cymbal in a kit.
  • PDX-100 10″ mesh-head snare pad with support for positional sensing and rim shot/cross stick playing.
  • VH-11 V-Hi-Hat mounts on a standard acoustic hi-hat stand and offers realistic motion and a natural acoustic feel.
  • KD-9 kick pad with cloth head for great feel and solid playability.
  • One CY-13R 13″ ride cymbal with natural swinging motion and edge/bow/bell triggering.
  • Play along with WAV/MP3 songs and capture drum performances as audio tracks to a USB memory stick.The TD25KV is the premium kit with bigger, better toms and 2 crash cymbals rather than just 1

What the TD25K+P has 

  • Three mesh-head tom pads: two PDX-6 6.5″ pads for rack toms and one PDX-8 8″ pad for floor tom.
  • One CY-12C 12″ crash cymbal with natural swinging motion, edge/bow sensors, and choke control.
