A Lifetime of Drumming Starts Here

If you’ve always dreamed of playing drums, you’ll know it’s a powerful ambition. But along with the excitement, you may also feel that learning drums is too hard. And yet, while you certainly do have to put in some effort, becoming a tight drummer may not be as tough as you think. If you can tap in time to music, you already have an intuitive understanding of the fundamentals of rhythm…you just need to take the next step. Roland V-Drums are the world’s most popular electronic drums, thanks to their powerful sound, great playing feel and legendary durability. And if you think you might have drumming in your blood, the new V-Drums TD-1DMK will help you find it. The TD-1DMK provides a fulfilling drumming experience in a compact kit that’s easy to move around. The simple-yet-powerful module includes a variety of expressive drum kits, connected to Roland’s renowned dual-mesh pads for snare and toms which match the feel of playing on acoustic drums but without the noise* – great for late-night practice sessions. You can play with headphones too, so you won’t disturb family or neighbors, and with onboard coach functions and the ability to connect to Melodics drum training software, you’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll improve. Pick up the sticks, take a deep breath and pull up to the TD-1DMK. A lifetime of drumming awaits – so what are you waiting for?




The V-Drums TD-1DMK is an electronic drum set with legendary Roland quality and durability, as well as double-mesh head pads for quiet drumming with great playing feel.

With a full-size drum stand for a realistic drum setup and quiet double mesh-head pads for low-noise without compromising stick resistance or feel, the TD-1DMK offers realistic sound and true-to-life response, with the ability to use genuine drumming techniques such as cymbal grab/choke and hi-hat tonal changes using the foot pedal. The TD-1DMK is a kit for anyone wanting to try drumming or perfect their skills, no matter their age or ability level.

The TD-1DMK faithfully responds to the subtle nuances of your playing – with every stick hit and all the dynamics detected and faithfully relayed, thanks to the fast processing and authentic acoustic sounds of the TD-1 module. And as you improve, the TD-1 module can keep up with you, reflecting your superior technique and expression.

The dual-layer mesh heads for the snare and toms can be tension-adjusted and offer stronger stick resistance compared with other mesh heads, giving natural rebound and feel that’s as close as possible to the feel of playing acoustic drum heads. Kick pedal feel and rebound is also important for your drumming – so the TD-1DMK is compatible with your choice of kick pedal (sold separately), while the soft rubber pad absorbs the energy from the beater, for a natural feel, faithful rebound and quieter performance.

If you think you might have drumming in your blood, the new V-Drums TD-1DMK will help you find it.
