April 16, 2011  -  Filed under Drums, Technology

Roland Electronics has just released the newest  advances in their infamous electronic drums, the K series which upgrades the TD-4 and TD-9 Drum Sets.

On the first rung of the Roland ladder the TD-4K2  features the Mesh Head  KD-9 Kick Pad as the improvement over the TD4S. The Brain, Pads, and Drum Rack are the same as they were.

Next in line is the Roland TD-4KX2-S. This Kit has Mesh Heads for the Toms and Snare and when you add in the KD-9, that makes this an all Mesh Head Drum Set. A Cymbal Upgrade with the Larger CY-13R Ride and the CY-12C Crash V Cymbals is also part of the Re-Vamp. Another New  Limited Time Value is the addition of Drum Workshop 3000 Single Bass Pedal and the 3000 Drum Throne. When you combine these Upgrades along with the Rack and the TD-4 Brain, Roland’s Legendary Durability and Great Price, it will be very easy to say “I’ll take it”

Coming Soon

Bailey Brothers will also be getting in the Newest Version of the TD9’s. The     TD-9K2 Features the KD-9 Mesh Head Kick Pad and the TD-9KX2-S, the All Mesh Head Version, adds in the VH-11 Hi-Hat Cymbal that works atop a real Hi-Hat Stand.
