Roland TD-50K Electronic Drum Kit Review
Roland TD-50K Electronic Drum Kit Review


I’m gonna go ahead and get this one out of the way.  It’s the most expensive electronic drumset I have in my best electronic drumsets list (although more expensive electronic drumsets do exist) And while not everyone looking for an electronic drumset is looking to spend this much money on an electronic drumset, this is truly my favorite and highly regarded as one of the best electronic drumsets every made.  The TD-50k refers to the brain of the drumset, known as the module. That is where the most value lies and truthfully you can pair a module with any pads on the market. For this particular electronic drumset though, the make of the pads are every bit as impressive as the module. The advance sensitivty of the pads and the endless programming options of the module allow for this drumset to be used in an professional setting and really is a great tool for recording studios as it allows you to record incredible drum tones digitally in a way that feels as real as almost an traditional drumset but with the ability to manipulate the tones the tempos and other features that can only be done with digital tones.  (not only but much easier).
