The brain of the TD-6SXT is the TD-6V Percussion Sound Module. Sporting a stylish black look and cool blue LCD screen, the 64-voice module serves up 1,024 of Roland's best drum and percussion sounds and 262 backing instruments, with drum kits and patterns in the latest music styles. Large, luminous buttons make the TD-6V easy to use.

The TD-6SXT includes Roland's popular PD-105 10" mesh V-Pad for the snare, featuring dual-trigger capability for playing separate head and rim sounds. Three PD-85 8" mesh V-pads for the toms offer a natural feel for more expressive play.

The majority of the TD-6SXT's pads and components mount conveniently onto the bundled MDS-6SL+ rack, including the three cymbal pads: a CY-8 and CY-12R/C (which enables separate bell triggering), and CY-5 Hi-Hat Pad. Thanks to the FD-8 Hi-Hat Controller, drummers can get more realistic hi-hat sounds with smooth transitions between open and closed.

Kick Trigger
Drummers will appreciate the TD-6SXT's upright KD-8 kick drum trigger. The vertical design not only gives drummers a better feel compared to reverse-type kick triggers, but it also reduces unwanted vibration, so you get nothing but solid kick sounds. And here's more good news: The KD-8 can even accommodate double bass pedals!
