Roland TD17 kit 2


The Roland td17k series electronic drumset models are very reasonably priced instruments for the value they hold.  With versions of the Roland 17k available the ability to own one of these series electronic drumsets is attainable for any drummer.  The drum module, which is derived from the expensive professional td-50 module is as good as it gets and with the variations between the Roland td17kl-s, the roland tdkv-s and the roland tdkvx-s, there are hardware options for a variety of drummers and budgets.


9.1 Expert Score
  • With 3 configurations of the Roland TD17 Series, there is a good electronic drumset for beginners, mid level drummers and professional musicians in this series.
  • Roland Signature Sound Bank is always impressive, even on their lower end models.
  • USB Connection is solid and allows for syncing with music creation programs on your computer
  • It seems like they should just offer this drumset with the mesh heads, but I suppose some people prefer the rubber or the price associated with it.
