http://www.nevadamusic.co.uk/Drums-and-Percussion/Electronic-Drums/Electronic-Drum-Kits/sc1178/p8734.aspx Rolands TD-12KX electronic drum kit is the new and improved version of their best-selling TD-12KV. In addition to the enhanced editing facilities, the TD12 KX features larger, more solid kick and floor tom pads and a sturdier hardware rack with more practical pad mounting and placement. The kit comprises of the brain or central processor unit, a heavy duty stand (all cables are concealed within the tubing to keep things tidy), one 10 snare pad (PD-105), two 8 rack tom pads (PD-85), one 10″ floor tom (PD-105), a 12 kick pad (KD-120), three 12 cymbal pads (CY-12R/C) and Rolands unique VH-11 Hi-hats. All of the TD12KX’s drum pads have duel pad and rim triggering, and feature the high quality mesh heads which have earned Roland the reputation of the most natural feeling electronic drum kit on the market. It’s also possible to expand the kit by adding extra cymbals or pads.
The TD12 brain unit shares many of the same features as the processor on the high-end range TD20 model. Similarities include a large icon-based LCD screen, instrument mixer and sturdy metal construction.You will find over 500 separate drum, cymbal and percussion sounds onboard (and a staggering 171,000 variations of these sounds!)all of which can be used to create your perfect kit, or to customise one of the 50 preset kits.
The sounds are incredibly realistic and respond just like a real drum would, depending on how hard or fast you play. Every instrument is fully customisable, allowing you to modify almost anything from the virtual shell depth and head tension of the drum to how many bits of gaffa tape youd put on the skin to dampen it! The TD12KX also allows you to add varying degrees of ambience to the sounds via its comprehensive multi-effects and reverb processor. It’s also fully MIDI compatible and will integrate seamlessly with any MIDI setup.
A welcome addition to the TD12 is the onboard sequencer. This allows you to record yourself (up to 20,000 notes) or jam along with one of the 150 preset patterns and is therefore much more than just a glorified metronome (which, of course, the TD12 also has on-board). Any of the preset loops or instrument sounds can be assigned to any pad for easy triggering, allowing you to integrate them seamlessly into your live performances.

New video here too !! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdN6P66SWn8
The Roland TD4K V-Drum Kit takes over where the TD-3 left off except that the TD-4 has a host of new features and four times the wave memory of its predecessor … There’s also a new re-enforced drum stand that’s still just as lightweight and compact but now a whole lot stronger, aside from the new stand Roland have supplemented the TD-4 with a centre mounted sound module that contains new sounds and sensors within the pads that have an even greater degree of touch sensitivity …
The snare pad has a patented mesh head for improved feel and resonance, whilst the toms and cymbals are velocity sensitive with the cymbals also having a “choke” capability.The TD4K is also expandable to include an optional pad or if preferred the user can replace the ride cymbal to a CY-12R/C 3-way trigger V-Cymbal, the kit is also compatible with the optional VH-11 V-Hi-Hat which can be mounted on a conventional hi-hat stand.
Pre-programmed kit patches can be customised by the ability to tune and dampen each drum to the user’s own preference whilst ambient effects such as reverb can also be controlled to suit the occasion.To improve your playing skills Roland have also included their acclaimed Coach Mode which tests and trains drumming skills such as timing, accuracy and stamina. The Coach programme offers a diverse range of drumming excercises that can run for 5, 10 or 15 minutes and are ideal as warm-up routines for live gigs or studio sessions .
