The TD-6V: More Than Just a New Look
The first thing you'll notice about the TD-6V Percussion Sound Module is the new black look and cool blue LCD screen. Like the original, this 64-voice module serves up 1,024 of Roland's best drum and percussion sounds and 262 backing instruments—but with newly created drum kits and patterns in the latest music styles. Dual-trigger tom inputs allow for rim shots on toms and expanded musical expression, while large, luminous buttons make the TD-6V very easy to use.

Upgraded Pads and Cymbals
The TD-6S includes Roland's popular PD-80R mesh V-Pad with dual-trigger capability for playing separate snare and rim sounds. For toms and hi-hat, Roland includes the newly created PD-8 rubber pads with dual-trigger support for playing rim shots and bow/edge sounds with the TD-6V module. The CY-8 cymbals offer "swinging" motion with great response, separate bow/edge triggering and choke capabilities, plus a fresh new look that more closely resembles a real cymbal.

New Upright Kick Trigger
Drummers will appreciate the TD-6S' new upright kick drum trigger. The new KD-8 Kick Trigger's vertical design not only gives drummers a better feel compared to reverse-type kick triggers, but it also reduces trembling so you get nothing but solid kick sounds. And here's more good news… the KD-8 can even accommodate double bass pedals—perfect for drummers who want to create complex rhythms.

Ultra-Sensitive Hi-Hat Control
Thanks to Roland's new FD-8 Hi-Hat Controller, drummers can get more realistic hi-hat sounds with smooth transitions between open and closed. With a fresh new look and updated kits, pads and cymbals, the V-Tour Series TD-6S packs an impressive punch.
