We put the newly-released Roland TD17 electronic kit through its paces and it doesn’t disappoint. It sits atop the entry level (but still very good) TD1 but below the more pricey TD25 and, pound for pound, has perhaps the best feature set of any electronic kit we’ve seen so far.

The strength of the shell also lends well to higher tunings. Most astonishing is the price – south of £300 … Continue reading
