Roland

TD-25KV V-Drums Kit

Exceptional sounds and functions plus more tactile adjustability.

Roland recently made some changes to its V-Drums lineup, including discontinuing the TD-15 series and adding two mid-level kits with the TD-25 module. This new series capitalizes on a lot of the technology found in Roland’s flagship TD-30 line, but delivers kits at a lower price point.

The TD-25 kits offer a beautiful playing experience and a lot of great features that can be utilized both for practice and performance. We were sent the TD-25KV model for review (list price: $3,499).

What’s in the Box?

The TD-25KV came equipped with two PD-85BK 8″ pads for rack toms, two PDX-100 10″ pads for the floor tom and snare, one KD-9 kick pad, two CY-12C 12″ crash cymbals, one CY-13R 13″ ride cymbal, the VH-11 V-Hi-Hat, which mounts on a regular hi-hat stand (not included), and a rack with all the necessary clamps and boom arms. The lower-priced TD-25K kit ($2,499) comes with just one crash and includes two PDX-6 6.5″ pads for the rack toms and one PDX-8 8″ pad for the floor tom. Everything else is the same.
