Compared with other mesh heads, Roland’s dual-ply mesh heads for the snare and toms feature adjustable tension, and also provide authentic natural rebound that’s as close as possible to the feel of playing acoustic drum heads. The TD-1DMK’s kick pad is compatible with standard single and double kick pedals, and features a soft rubber surface that absorbs noise from the beater while maintaining natural acoustic feel and response.
