The all-new Roland TD-50K2 is loaded with their most expressive drum sounds and playing detection technologies to date, it delivers flagship-grade performance in a scaled-down size.
The groundbreaking digital snare, ride, and all new VH-14D hi-hat pads bring ultra-detailed playability to the three most nuanced pieces in the kit, complete with full-size playing surfaces for maximum drumming comfort. The next-generation TD-50X module provides unmatched tone, feel, and response, plus deep editing tools to personalize your sound and pro connectivity to take on any playing situation. Compact tom and kick pads minimize the overall footprint without sacrificing playability, making this kit a great choice for home playing, small stages, and anywhere that space is tight.
Roland TD-50X Sound Module
The Prismatic Sound Modelling in the TD-50X makes electronic drums come to life like no other system can, infusing multi-layer samples recorded in world-class studios with sophisticated behaviour modelling techniques refined over more than two decades. Inspired by a prism—which refracts a single ray of light into every colour in the spectrum—Roland’s revolutionary approach produces an unlimited array of sonic colours with every stick hit. The initial attack is followed by a complex mix of rich overtones, just like playing acoustic drums and cymbals. You can feel the sound changing in reaction to your expression, creating that magical, interactive bond that fully immerses you in the emotion of the moment. From subtle ghost notes and detailed articulations to the loudest and most intense playing, your drumming has no boundaries with the TD-50X.
The TD-50X allows you to customise your sound at every level—just as you would with an acoustic kit. Make quick adjustments to tuning and muffling, or dive deep and build a kit from the ground up by selecting shell depths, drumhead types, cymbal characteristics, and much more. Then put the kit in the space of your choice using PureAcoustic Ambience, with full control of room type, reverberation, and other parameters at your fingertips.
Stereo XLR master outs and eight TRS direct outs allow you to send any drums you like to an audio console via balanced connections. For computer-based music production, you have the ability to send up to 32 channels of digital audio over USB for premium-quality transfer. MIDI I/O is also supported over USB and traditional five-pin connectors. With four auxiliary analog trigger inputs, you can easily expand as your needs grow. Augment your setup with more cymbal pads, another floor tom, or a small trigger pad like the Roland BT-1. Or double up by adding an additional kick drum for maximum stage impact!
Precision multi-sensors in the snare, ride, and all new VH-14D hi-hat pads work in complete harmony with the TD-50X module, capturing every nuance with incredible definition and detail. Lightning-fast detection enables you to play all your natural acoustic techniques, such as muting the ride with a finger touch or switching seamlessly between head, rimshot, and cross stick playing on the snare.
The brand new VH-14D Digital Hi-Hats take electronic hi-hat playing to new heights, offering touch sensitivity, tonal variation, and open/closed resolution never before available.
The TD-50K2 features Roland’s famous multi-ply mesh heads, with a three-layer head on the snare and two-layer heads on the toms providing natural stick resistance and rebound for ultra-satisfying feel and response. Just like drumheads on acoustic drums, you can tweak the tension to your preference with a standard drum key. And since our mesh heads produce very little acoustic noise, the TD-50K2 is perfect for both quiet practice sessions with headphones and live performance setups that require complete volume control on stage.
