Entry Level Roland Electronic Drums

Roland gives you another great electronic drumming solution with their TD-1K kit. If you're just starting out as a drummer, you know three things are true - 1) Practice makes perfect, 2) Space and noise will always be issues, and most importantly, 3) That we here at Sweetwater are always ready with a solution. The TD-1K answers the call of new drummers with its small, lightweight (around 25lbs!) frame and responsive playing pads, giving you a natural feel and great, versatile sound, in even the smallest of practice spaces. Fun and easy to use, the Roland TD-1K electronic drum kit will keep you playing lesson after lesson.

Roland TD-1K Electronic Drum Kit at a Glance:
  • Sounds that help build your "drummer's ear"
  • Quiet operation keeps you playing no matter the time of day
  • An entry level kit with professional features
Sounds that help build your "drummer's ear"

As you build your drumming skills, you'll find yourself playing a variety of music from different genres. With the TD-1K, you get 15 different kits to play in one small box. Roland has picked the best and most defining drum sounds from different genres - rock, jazz, even world music - and compiled great sounding kits for you to rock on while you're honing your stick skills. Onboard training functions help support your lessons, and an 1/8" input lets you plug in your MP3 player to jam with your favorite songs and encourage you to keep playing as you learn.

Quiet operation keeps you playing no matter the time of day

One of the greatest things about playing an electronic kit is being able to plug in a set of headphones and pound it out without anyone else being privy to your playing. As a beginner you'll find yourself less worried about mistakes and start-overs and push through until you nail it! And it's not just a lack of acoustic drums with reverberant heads and boomy shells, Roland gave the TD-1K a beater-less kick trigger pedal, removing even the sound of a squeaky kick pedal.

An entry level kit with professional features

It has great sounds, it's quiet so you haven't upset neighbors, and it helps you become a great drummer - how could the TD-1K possibly get any better? Well, just take a look at how small and easy to set up it is and you'll see that the TD-1K is at home just about anywhere. Its size is perfect for music schools with small lesson rooms already full of keyboards and guitar amps, when the lesson is over, simply push it into a corner out of the way. If you have a school-aged drummer, it's easy to find space in a bedroom for private playing and practice. In the studio, the USB output connects to your computer, giving you a playable MIDI controller to access software sound modules with, or letting you record directly into a DAW. And while you're connected, don't forget to check out all the fun to be had with Roland's V-Drums Friend Jam series applications which let you jam along with tracks, offer even more practice features, and get you playing head-to-head drum-offs with drummers from around the world!

..and now my studio has drums!

This kit arrived in 1 day, free shipping from Sweetwater! 20 minutes from box to setup. Unpack the box upside down because the frame parts are on the bottom and that is where you need to start assembly. (Silly Roland). The sounds are great for a beginner kit. I bought this to use with Superior Drummer in my DAW via usb. The extra pad input is great, as well as, the ability to upgrade the pads to mesh and add a kick pad & double kick pedal if so desired. This thing looks like a toy, but don't be fooled. I was able to adjust the drums to the perfect height and slide pads & arms left/right, and cymbals with the angled stems just about any angle /spacing I wanted.

Great for a beginner

I bought this for myself and my kids. I want to learn to play drums and so do my boys. This kit is exactly what I wanted. Affordable starter kit that lets me get my kids involved without having to buy a standard drum kit, or a serious electronic kit. The drum sounds sound great to us and the different kits keep the boys interested in different sounds. We are trying to figure out the coach mode, but the boys enjoy trying to play along with the built in jam songs. So if you are just starting out, or want to not invest a lot to see if your kids will want to continue, this unit is the way to go.

What an amazing piece!

I'm not a drummer but bought this for my home studio as I HATE programing drums. Did not know what to expect but had an idea based on what a friend who has a TD-15 told me and also Rolands reputation for making great recording products. My son is a drummer and the goal I had was to record live drums on some of my projects and also to be able to play without the "volume overload" from acoustic drums (and complaints from my neighbors). Though I did not know what to expect I knew it would be easier than programing or trying to mike an acoustic set which can be very hard and also very expensive when you consider the mikes that need to be purchased to do it properly. I can't tell you in words how surprised and pleased I am. The music is speaking for itself. The ease of use, set-up to record and the sound of the recorded material are truly amazing. I would probably still be setting up mikes and adjusting levels on an acoustic set right now instead of writing this review. The set exceeds my expectations on every level. If this is Rolands new entry level kit I can't even imagine what their high end models are like! And as ALWAYS Sweetwater treated me like family. Thank you Curt Cripe and Adam Briggs!!!!

Speechless! Compact size, ease of control and expandability just makes this kit one of my all time favorite investments! I'm running it through Logic Pro X via USB MIDI and it automatically maps to the drummer function within Logic! Totally blown away having the best of both worlds-live and studio functionality all in one kit at a very, very low price. Roland out did themselves this time!

Affordable & Well-built

Roland has built a great product with the TD-1K. I am very impressed with the solid construction and how efficiently this kit is put together. It takes up very little space too, and I am able to practice at home for the first time in years with the beaterless bass drum. The hi hat is also extremely responsive, sometimes a weakness in electronic kits. 4.5 stars only because the bass pedal feels a little sluggish as compared to a regular foot pedal, and the top cross beam could stand to be a little longer for an add-on pad. I highly recommend this kit; Roland has been building these for a long time and they do it right! Roland sound library can't be beat.
