(2024 latest) ROLAND TD-17K-LS electronic drum
Roland held an online global launch event Totally Drums on May 8, releasing the new TD-17 series, TD-25KVX and TD-50KVX electronic drums.
The first one to be launched in the Japanese market is TD-17K-L. This is a set of electronic drums that integrates home practice, recording, and stage performance, especially with powerful and professional practice functions. If you have made up your mind to become a drummer, the TD-17K-L will be your best choice.
Excellent sound source
The TD-17-L sound source is derived from the sound source of Roland's flagship product TD-50. It uses Prismatic Sound Modeling (Prismatic Sound Modeling) technology, which means every detail of your performance will be accurately captured.
Once you start playing, you can feel a wider range of velocity control and strong tone changes depending on where and how you hit. Keep playing and start using various playing techniques, including the half-open position of the pedal and the different sounds of the top and sides of the pedal.
You'll notice that the sound of gunpowder even differs depending on whether it's hit once or multiple times in a row. No matter how you play, you'll feel right at home on the TD-17-L:
Real playing feel
Although the TD-17K-L is very compact, its performance is at a professional level.
In addition to being equipped with Roland's highly acclaimed percussion pads such as the PDX-8 and PD-8A, the position and angle of each percussion pad are fully adjustable, and the distance between the percussion pad and the drummer can always be maintained compared to using traditional drums. The distance is very similar, so that you will not be unfamiliar with the performance of acoustic drums due to long-term practice with electric drums:
Professional and efficient skills training tool
1. Enhance your sense of rhythm
Time Check mode improves the accuracy of your playing along with the click track. The number of accurate hits is displayed as a percentage value, and the screen indicates whether you hit the pads exactly in time, faster than the beat, or slower than the beat. If practiced regularly, timing detection can be immeasurably helpful in improving your sense of rhythm.
2. Fine-tune your own sense of timing. Quiet Count mode helps improve your body's internal sense of timing and speed. In the first few measures, the metronome will sound at the specified volume, but in the later measures, the metronome will not sound. During the silent bars, you need to stay in sync with the beat based on your inner sense of timing, ensuring that when the beat comes back it's consistent with it. The more you use your mental metronome, the stronger you will become.
3. Effective warm-up routines just got easier
Warm Up mode makes your practice routine more enjoyable, meaning you'll be more likely to achieve your practice goals. Choose to warm up for five, ten or fifteen minutes, with varying degrees of difficulty, then select your speed
