- Become a Better Drummer, Faster
When you're serious about drumming, you need a kit to match your ambition. The V-Drums TD-17 series lets your technique shine through, backed up with training tools to push you further. Combining a TD-50-class sound engine with newly developed pads results in an affordable electronic drum kit that's authentically close to playing acoustic drums accurately mirroring the physical movement, stick coordination and hand/foot control that every drummer needs. Meanwhile, an array of built-in coaching functions will track your technique, measure your progress and increase your motivation. Becoming a better drummer is still hard work, but the TD-17 can help you get there.
Authentic Playing Feel and Skill-Building Tools
If you regularly play acoustic drums, you shouldn't have to change your playing style to use an electronic drum kit. You can use the same playing techniques you'd use on an acoustic kit, without compromise, thanks to the large 12-inch snare and a natural feeling hi-hat that can even be mounted on an acoustic hi-hat stand. And being based on the flagship TD-50 sound engine, the sounds faithfully reproduce the character and tone of acoustic drums, with lightning fast response time.
Realistic Pads for Uncompromising Performance
Some electronic kits use much smaller pads than youd typically find on an acoustic kit but because the drumstick has to hit the center of each drum, these smaller pads can actually feel further away from you. This is especially true if you've moved from playing a 14-inch acoustic snare to an 8-inch rubber pad. The 12-inch dual-mesh PDX-12 snare is tension-adjustable for authentic and satisfying rebound, while the height of the snare hoop is much closer to that of an acoustic snare so you can hit an open rim shot with a natural stick angle. If you're serious about drumming, the TD-17 lets your technique shine through without asking you to compromise.
The Essential Tools to Improve Your Drumming
The TD-17 module includes a Coach Mode to support your daily exercise regime. You can warm up, develop your sense of groove, tempo and timing, and even work on your stamina all with a score that tells you how you're doing.
Join Your Favourite Band - No Audition Necessary
Although playing endless drum solos is undeniably fun, it only takes you so far. Push your drumming further by playing along with your favourite bands, or rehearse the tunes you'll be playing on stage. Wirelessly stream favourite songs from your smartphone to the TD-17 via Bluetooth audio, and hear the entire performance through your headphones. You can even record your performance and then listen back, to decide where you need to improve.
Preparing To Play Live
When rehearsing, it's important to play with the same familiar drum sounds that you'll be using on stage. The TD-17 includes a variety of expressive modelled drum sounds inherited from the flagship TD-50, so you'll be sure to find the perfect drum sound as you prepare for the gig.
