Roland TD-20KX

Roland has announced two new models in the V-Drums V-Compact Series: TD-20KX and TD-4KX.

The new TD-20KX V-Pro series makes a full-impact impression onstage with its industrial brushed-metal* V-Pads, enlarged V-Kick, silver-colored V-Cymbals, and rock-solid chrome drum rack. The TD-20X drum module is loaded with hundreds of powerful and expressive sounds, and provides a newly integrated feature set that’s based on Roland’s famous TD-20 and TDW-20. Eye-catching looks, incredible sounds, and reinforced hardware make the TD-20KX a star on any stage.
