The Roland TD-30KV V-Drums V-Pro Drum Kit builds massively on the previous flagship V-Drums kits with the addition of Roland's SuperNatural sound engine, which produces incredibly detailed sounds based on the subtleties, and nuance of your performance, as well as Behaviour Modelling and increased sensitivity in the pads. The TD30 dectects performance techniques such as playing on different areas of the snare skin, flams, single handed buzz rolls and more complex interplay between the sticks and pedal with the hi-hats, giving much smoother responses and continuous sounds. Add to this a dedicated ambiance fader and USB audio out, and it is clear that TD-30K is the next step in drum evolution.
The Flagship Roland TD30KV offers over 1,000 drum sounds that are completely customisable into custom kits thanks to the professional V-Edit mode, enabling you to create the perfect kit for any situation, and get the perfect recorded drum sound anywhere, any time.
The V-Hi-Hat (VH-13-MG) now has an improved motion sensor for natural hi-hat response, the V-Pads (PD-128S/128/108-BC) feature an improved rim sensor for accurate rim-shot sensing and the V-Cymbals (CY-14C-MG Crash, CY-15R-MG Ride) have also been replaced for a more natural feel and more accurate triggering. The updates from the TD20 to the Roland TD-30 really make the difference between impressive and natural.
The trigger response, dynamics, and positional sensing have all been improved to a major extent. The TD30 Drum Sound Module lifts Roland V-Pro level kits to new realms of expression, which is quite a feat as the flagship V-Drums kits were already the world leaders in electronic drum performance, and this development is sure to secure Roland's position into the future. The snare now has smoother transition in reaction between head and rim shots. The crash cymbal responds more dynamically to delicate hits, swell rolls and powerwful crash hits. The ride features increased dynamic sensitivity and more accurate position detection. Every drum responds more smoothly to fast open rolls, flams, ghost notes and single handed buzz rolls, giving a continuous sound in between each hit. All elements of advanced hi-hat control have been improved with the V Hi-Hat responding to subtle and complex work using the foot pedal and sticks, keeping continous open sounds and sizzles when the hats are slightly open, and easier to control foot splashes.
The ambience controls go to extreme measures to give this the Roland TD-30 Drum Sound Module a natural sound in all situations. There is control of the Overhead Mic, Room Mic (you can choose room size, and mic placement) and also Reverb to blend the drum sounds for added smoothness, so you really have control of whatever sound you are going for whether it be a tight studio sound or a massive concert hall!
The Roland TD30 is a major development in electronic drum technology, giving drummers acoustic kit sensitivity with digital flexibility. This landmark drum brain is destined to convince a great number of (previously hesitant) drummers to switch to electric kits. The increased responsiveness and smooth reaction to advanced playing techniques means there is no longer anything to lose when switching from an acoustic kit to an electronic one, particularly for more subtle, technical and dynamic players, and there is a serious amount to gain!

I'm writing this review for one of my friends who recently bought this kit and after a while playing it, I must say we're both pleased with both the realism and feel of this beautiful piece of technology.
The module holds a huge range of different sounds, and the overall sound is so crisp and so realistic. If you shut your eyes, it's just an acoustic kit, but with headphones.
I suggest this to anyone, as I know I will be going to my friends more often just to play with this kit. It's heaven in a drum.
