An acoustic drum kit needs to be set up to play a specific style of music, so you’re stuck with one type of sound. But that’s not the case with the TD-1KV—it includes 15 quality drum kits on board, so you can play any kind of music you want at the touch of a button, from rock and blues to jazz, world music, EDM, and beyond. At one practice session, you can rock hard with a heavy bottom-end sound, then instantly change kits to recreate the sound of your favorite band. Every kit reacts just like the acoustic and electronic kits they emulate, giving you a huge range of variety in one compact, standalone instrument.

    Review by Emanon 12/03/2015
    I was looking at getting a kit that I can practice with during the evenings. Immediately I gravitated towards electronic drums. This was the one that I thought I can practice with and start my daughter off with. I did not want to spend over $1k yet so I thought I'd get this to begin with. The only thing I wanted was to have at least one mesh head. This was provided for by the TD1KV on the snare drum.

    It looks sturdy enough with its rack. Set up was not difficult either. If I remember correctly, I completed the set up within 1 hour. I am pretty good with putting together IKEA furniture, though. So your mileage may vary.

    I am yet to purchase a mat as the detached kick pedals keep sliding as you play them. At first, these pedals look flimsy. Yet, they seem to be made quite tough. I'm not by any means a hard hitter. In fact, some drummer friends have told me to hit harder when I play on their acoustic drums. Only time will tell on how long the pads and kick pedals last with the way I play.

    You need to adjust your volumes to match the experience as close as possible to an acoustic drum kit. I feel that this may be difficult if you have never played on an acoustic kit. My older brother is a decent drummer who sessions for several bands so I have had a go at his kits and I believe I have enough experience to match the sonic volumes of acoustic and electric kits.

    It takes a little getting used to the cymbal areas as I found out. There is also a subtle difference in velocity of hitting the pads which bring out the different sounds for the cymbals. I also wish I had enough money for the second crash cymbal as it would add to the better feel of the drums in my opinion. It is always good to have that second cymbal for the variety of crash sounds. I'll be most likely saving up for this.

    Overall, for the price you are paying, I think this kit is pretty good. It's not as customisable as the next step up (TD4KP). For my purposes, though, it is enough to get me through my current needs. If my daughter really takes up drumming seriously, then I might look at getting a proper acoustic kit or a higher model (probably TD11K or upwards).
