Roland TD-12S V-Stage Series V-Drums System

Great feeling, great sounding — the new V-Stage Series TD-12S makes the middle range of the V-Drums line feel like first class. With mesh V-Pads all the way around, the TD-12S lets drummers sink their sticks into the best-feeling pads in the business. The new TD-12 drum module is an upgrade from the previous TD-8, sharing the same stunning sound quality as the flagship TD-20.

Unbeatable Sound
With the same stunning sound quality as the flagship TD-20, the new TD-12 drum module provides hundreds of expressive instruments and play-along sequences in a streamlined, affordable package. Many of the sounds in the TD-12, from drums to cymbals, are COSM modeled for the ultimate in expression and realism. The module provides the same large, icon-based LCD as its big brother (the TD-20), and is housed in a road-tough, metallic black chassis with a friendly array of buttons, controls, and mix sliders. Twelve trigger inputs are provided, plus four audio outputs and MIDI I/O.

Unrivaled V-Editing
Enjoy the dozens of expert-programmed kits in the TD-12 — from authentic acoustic sets to ultra-modern electronic flavors. But the fun doesn't stop there; customize your snare drum, toms, bass drum, and cymbals with the modeling-based V-Editing. Change sizes and materials, attach sizzles to cymbals, increase snare buzz, and more. Then get out your sticks and enjoy! The TD-12 supports positional sensing on the snare and ride, as well as on the toms when you play rimshots. The TD-12 is also brush compatible, and features the expressive Interval Control feature for the snare and ride/crash/china cymbal, which varies the sound in natural ways based on the speed of stroke repetition.
