Gearank Recommendation

The TD-30K was on our recommended list for Electronic Drum Sets from March 2017 until March 2018.

Overview

There's simply no denying Roland's dominance in this market, and for many years, the TD-30K led their advance.

This particular drum kit provides drummers with the best that Roland had to offer in terms of playability, sound quality and versatility.

At the heart of this kit is the TD-30 Drum Module, which runs on Roland's SuperNATURAL sound engine, and hosts a staggering number of features, including 100 Kits and 1362 instrument sounds. And if that's not enough, the module allows for deep editing, which exponentially increases the possible sounds and combinations.

It even comes with built-in effects, mic placement emulation, ambience and much more.

Connectivity options are also expanded to allow for more pads and controllers.

On the playability side, the kit features bigger PDX-100 pads for the toms, and a nice looking black finish 12" snare with positional sensing to better detect the nuances in your playing technique. It has a 15" Ride, two crash cymbals (13" and 12"), and features the same VH-11 hi-hat as seen on the TD-25K, all of which allow for various techniques like cymbal swell.

If you want to go the tried and tested route, then get what the market hails as the best. If budget permits, or if you're willing to invest then the Roland TD-30K should be your top consideration.
