Roland launches new entry-level kits

Roland has replaced the entry-level TD-1 kit with a new TD-02 line consisting of a TD-02K and TD-02KV kit.

The sets are powered by a new TD-02 sound module with 16 kits and Roland’s Coach functions to help build and maintain skills.

An optional BOSS Bluetooth Audio MIDI Dual Adaptor provides cable-free communication with mobile devices and computers to wirelessly stream music to the module and send data to music production apps.

The TD-02K comes with a three-post stand with adjustable height, while the TD-02KV comes with a four-post stand with wider acoustic-style pad spacing.

The ‘smaller’ kit consists of four PD-4 drum pads, three CY-5 cymbals, and a FD-1 hi-hat pedal and a KT-1 kick.

In the bigger kit, one of the PD-4 pads is replaced with a PDX-8 snare pad.

The Roland TD-02K and TD-02KV will be available in the US from January for $399.99 and $599.99, respectively.
