Roland unveils three affordable TD-07 series electronic drum sets

Roland has announced the release of four new electronic drum set configurations. Each setup is based around Roland’s feature-packed, beginner/improver-friendly TD-07 drum module, and all include Roland’s patented dual-ply mesh heads.

The three-kit line-up joins the existing TD-07KV, and covers quite a lot of ground, from compact and portable to larger cymbal sizes and acoustic-style hi-hat mounting.

As well as plenty of acoustic, electronic and percussion sounds, and built-in editing and effects to process the sounds even further, the TD-07 module comes equipped with a host of features to make learning and practicing easier and more enjoyable. These include a USB audio/MIDI interface, Bluetooth, multiple on-board Coach modes and integration with Melodics online drum lessons.

Roland TD-07DMK

The entry-level TD-07DMK is the most affordable kit in the TD-07 series. It features a compact pad layout and a slimline kick pad that attaches directly to the stand, making it ideal for tight setups and situations where the kit needs to be stored away when not in use.
