From Our Research Team:
Nothing Beats Roland's Flagship Percussion Module!The heart of the V-Pro Series TD-20S-BK drum kit, the TD-20 Percussion Sound Module is filled with new sounds and functions, superb expressiveness and in-depth V-Editing. The TD-20 lets you express yourself more naturally and with more realism than ever before!
An Entirely New V-Drums Module for Ultimate Playing and Editing Power!
The new TD-20 is Roland's best percussion sound module ever. The TD-20 offers the ultimate sonic quality with over 500 new sounds, plus superb expressiveness and dynamic range when used with the new PD-125BK/105BK V-Pads and VH-12 V-Hi-Hat. Its superior sensitivity lets you play more naturally and without having to adjust your playing technique. The TD-20 includes the ability to vary rim shot and bass drum sounds depending on how you play. New interval control makes for better snare drum rolls and more realistic cymbal swells. Close your eyes. Listen to every articulation and sound being faithfully re-created until the moment your cymbal fades away, and you'll swear these are real acoustic drums!
Enhanced Performance Features Allow Maximum Sound Control
Whether used live or in the studio, the TD-20 offers a host of powerful features designed to make life easy. Eight group faders are provided for adjusting the relative levels of each part (snare, kick, hi-hat, etc.). 15 individual compressors and EQs let you sculpt each sound to perfection. The TD-20 also includes a 5-part sequencer loaded with preset backing patterns (and plenty of room for your own) plus onboard Ambience effects, a stellar multi-effects processor and more. A new Mastering Room lets you add compression and EQ on the overall sound, while 10 analog outputs and a S/PDIF digital output give you plenty of options when mixing live or in the studio.
More Powerful V-Editing Lets You Tweak to Your Heart's Desire
The TD-20 gives you even greater modeling power using Roland's latest COSM technology. Vastly expanded for unlimited expression, the TD-20's V-Editing starts from careful analysis of an entirely new set of drum sounds. The result captures every nuance of the real thing-including every moment of drum vibration and complete customization capabilities. You can now select from several types of kick beaters including felt, wood and plastic. Cymbal sizes can also be changed, along with the type of "sizzle" (i.e. rivets or chain), and the microphone position. The TD-20 even lets you add realistic snare drum "buzz" that matches the type of snare drum selected. It's the subtle nuances like these that really make TD-20 ideal for performance and recording.
Convenient CompactFlash Storage and More
New to the TD-20 is a CompactFlash slot that lets you store custom drum kits and sequencer patterns with optional memory cards. An expansion bay on the underside saves room for upgrades down the road. The TD-20 also features Roland's V-LINK technology. Using an optional video editor from Edirol, drummers can trigger images or change cameras from the pads or kick.
Roland TD-20 Features:
*V-LINK requires optional Edirol DV-7PR with software version 1.50 or higher.

When I first pulled the TD-20 out of the box, I noticed a couple of quick... read more »
This is an amazing advancement over the previous model, the TD-10. Out of the box, the unit comes with 50 USEFUL drum kits when many modules in the same class have some cartoonish, novelty kits. The new face plate includes some of the navigation that the previous line was missing like easy access to effects and ambience. It sounds killer and the new V-Edit engine definitely has more character and subtlety than the last. Additional Aux trigger inputs and even a dedicated ride bell trigger in (because I don't want to have to use one of my two Aux inputs for my ride!!) are a really nice touch. Thank you Roland for thinking of us first! A must-have for any drummer's toolbox.
Honey, I shrunk our bank account.

Buy it. Do it. do whatever you can to aquire it.
by soft serve from Roomates with this dudeNo. I don't work for Roland! In fact, I have been a professional drummer and have toured with the td-10 kit since 1887. i have played over 60 countrys, countless flights, blah blah. Whats my poin... read more [+]t you ask?? Well it's kinda funny actually. Check it out: I have played roland v drums exclusivly forever.and after all that exposure, guess what?? They don't do the endorser game?? never.Pro deal is net cost. Yep.Know what else? I paid bout 4 bills for the td-10 kit and the td-20 kit(squirtles!) was around 45 hundo. It's so good that I actually turned down an endorsement deal with yamaha simply because---Roland drums are the industry standard. In addition to that, or in spite of that: I get calls everyday since I aquired this baby. I can even control the light show with the drums! major "f-yeah" factor diggitty...p.s. if arnold can govern california, anythings possible! think of it as a loan on your dream. besides, you have a goal. you have a talent. might as well get paid for it! -i can get you gigs in LA ans SAN Diego if you have one of these. I can't handle it all!! 619 925 2408 for contact
