Realistic Pads for Uncompromising Performance
The TD-17KV2 and TD-17KVX2 kits come with enhanced snare and cymbal pads for an even more authentic drumming experience. The 12-inch PDX-12 snare and 10-inch PDX-8 tom pads feature tension-adjustable mesh heads for customizable acoustic-like response and rebound. In addition, the PDX-12 has a traditional hoop height to hit open rimshots with a natural stick angle. Both kits also include newly developed thin V-Cymbals that attach to the stands with a special pivot mount, providing acoustic-style swing motion and stick response when played.
Ideal for Perfecting Hi-Hat Techniques
The TD-17KVX2 comes with the VH-10 V-Hi-Hat, which uses a single-cymbal floating design that mounts on a traditional acoustic hi-hat stand. It provides the same playing feel as an acoustic hi-hat, with a natural rebound and authentic swinging motion when you strike the pad. And with bow/edge triggering and smooth open/closed sounds, you can execute traditional playing techniques to perfection.
Great Sounds Lead to Great Performances
The TD-17’s sound engine delivers a superior drumming experience, thanks to its advanced onboard Prismatic Sound Modeling. Just like acoustic drums, you can play with wide dynamic range and dramatic tonal changes depending on where and how hard you strike the pad. From rimshots, rolls, flams, and ghost notes on the snare to natural hi-hat transitions, dramatic crash hits, sustained cymbal swells, and more, every nuance is detailed, accurate, and ultra-smooth.
The Feel of an Acoustic Kick Drum (but Quieter)
A nice, solid kick drum usually comes with a nice, loud noise. Sometimes that’s exactly what you want, but your family or neighbors may not feel the same. The KD-10 Kick Pad absorbs most of the impact noise thanks to its carefully engineered rubber components and cushion, all while retaining that satisfying acoustic kick drum “thud” when a beater is buried in a full-size head. In addition to keeping the noise down, the versatile design is compatible with all standard kick pedals, both single and double.
Slimmer, Low-Profile Cymbals
All cymbals in the TD-17 series feature thinner profiles than previous generations, offering more natural movement and improved stick feel. Each cymbal can also be choked simply by grabbing the edge—just like a real acoustic cymbal. The 14-inch CY-14R-T ride cymbal even includes three-way triggering with independent sounds for the edge, bow, and bell.
Acoustic Drumming Techniques Accepted Here
Although each model in the TD-17 series can fit into smaller spaces at home, they’re outfitted for professional performance. Across the entire range, the position and angle of each pad are fully adjustable, and the overall layout is comparable to an acoustic kit.
