Roland's latest mid-level electronic kit blurs the lines between flagship performance and real-world affordability. The V-Drums TD-27KV packs the same 14" digital snare, 18" digital ride, and Prismatic Sound Modeling engine as Roland's top-of-the-line TD-50 kits. Yet a streamlined profile — a collapsible rack stand with 10" toms, 12" and 13" cymbals, and a tower-style kick drum — reduce the TD-27KV's footprint to a stage- and studio-friendly form factor. Within the TD-27 module, you'll find the same powerful customizations that made the TD-50 such a game changer. These include virtual head swaps, tuning and damping, snare wire and kick beater subs, and more. Such tweaks are easily accessible within the Roland TD-27: just tap the pad you want to edit, and all options appear onscreen before you. All-new for the TD-27 is Roland's PureAcoustic Ambience Technology, which allows you to adjust direct and ambient mic positions and FX processors at a virtual level for unbelievable realism through headphones. Once you've dialed in your kit, you can route it to your interface via four direct outputs (e.g. stereo L-R, kick drum, snare drum) or inject 28 channels of audio directly into your DAW over USB. Bluetooth streaming from phone to module enhance practice time, as do the onboard coaching functions and metronome. All told, the Roland V-Drums TD-27KV is one of the most eagerly anticipated V-Kits to drop, and one who's value and features drummers are eager to get behind.
