IMPORTANT NOTES
Power Supply
301
Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is being used by
an electrical appliance that is controlled by an inverter or a motor (such
as a refrigerator, washing machine, microwave oven, or air conditioner).
Depending on the way in which the electrical appliance is used, power
supply noise may cause this unit to malfunction or may produce audible
noise. If it is not practical to use a separate electrical outlet, connect a
power supply noise filter between this unit and the electrical outlet.
302
The AC adaptor will begin to generate heat after long hours of consec-
utive use. This is normal, and is not a cause for concern.
307
To prevent malfunction and equipment failure, always make sure to turn
off the power on all your equipment before you make any connections.
Placement
351
Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment containing
large power transformers) may induce hum. To alleviate the problem,
change the orientation of this unit; or move it farther away from the
source of interference.
352a
This device may interfere with radio and television reception. Do not use
this device in the vicinity of such receivers.
352b
Noise may be produced if wireless communications devices, such as cell
phones, are operated in the vicinity of this unit. Such noise could occur
when receiving or initiating a call, or while conversing.
Should you experience such problems, you should relocate such
wireless devices so they are at a greater distance from this unit, or switch
them off.
354a
Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near devices that
radiate heat, leave it inside an enclosed vehicle, or otherwise subject it
to temperature extremes. Excessive heat can deform or discolor the unit.
355b
When moved from one location to another where the temperature and/
or humidity is very different, water droplets (condensation) may form
inside the unit. Damage or malfunction may result if you attempt to use
the unit in this condition. Therefore, before using the unit, you must
allow it to stand for several hours, until the condensation has
completely evaporated.
360
Depending on the material and temperature of the surface on which
you place the unit, its rubber feet may discolor or mar the surface. You
can place a V-Drums Mat (sold separately) or cloth under the rubber feet
to prevent this from happening. If you do so, please make sure that the
unit will not slip or move accidentally.
361
Do not place containers or anything else containing liquid on top of this
unit. Also, whenever any liquid has been spilled on the surface of this
unit, be sure to promptly wipe it away using a soft, dry cloth.
Maintenance
401a
For everyday cleaning wipe the unit with a soft, dry cloth or one that has
been slightly dampened with water. To remove stubborn dirt, use a
cloth impregnated with a mild, non-abrasive detergent. Afterwards, be
sure to wipe the unit thoroughly with a soft, dry cloth.
402
Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any kind, to avoid the
possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.
Repairs and Data
452
Please be aware that all data contained in the unit’s memory may be lost
when the unit is sent for repairs. Important data should always be
written down on paper (when possible). During repairs, due care is
taken to avoid the loss of data. However, in certain cases (such as when
circuitry related to memory itself is out of order), we regret that it may
not be possible to restore the data, and Roland assumes no liability
concerning such loss of data.
Additional Precautions
551
Please be aware that the contents of memory can be irretrievably lost as
a result of a malfunction, or the improper operation of the unit. To
protect yourself against the risk of loosing important data, we
recommend that you periodically save a backup copy of important data
you written down on paper.
552
Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents of data that
was stored in the unit’s memory once it has been lost. Roland Corpo-
ration assumes no liability concerning such loss of data.
553
Use a reasonable amount of care when using the unit’s buttons, sliders,
or other controls; and when using its jacks and connectors. Rough
handling can lead to malfunctions.
554
Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display.
556
When disconnecting all cables, grasp the connector itself—never pull
on the cable. This way you will avoid causing shorts, or damage to the
cable’s internal elements.
558
To avoid disturbing others nearby, try to keep the unit’s volume at
reasonable levels.
558d
This instrument is designed to minimize the extraneous sounds
produced when it’s played. However, since sound vibrations can be
transmitted through floors and walls to a greater degree than expected,
take care not to allow these sounds to become a nuisance others
nearby.
559a
When you need to transport the unit, package it in the box (including
padding) that it came in, if possible. Otherwise, you will need to use
equivalent packaging materials.
562
Some connection cables contain resistors. Do not use cables that incor-
porate resistors for connecting to this unit. The use of such cables can
cause the sound level to be extremely low, or impossible to hear. For
information on cable specifications, contact the manufacturer of the
cable.
567
When adjusting or folding up the stand, take due care so as not to get
your fingers pinched between the movable parts and this unit. In places
where small children are present, make sure that an adult provides
supervision and guidance.
The rubber portion of the striking surface is treated with a preservative
to maintain its performance. With the passage of time, this preservative
may appear on the surface as a white stain, or reveal how the pads were
struck during product testing. This does not affect the performance or
functionality of the product, and you may continue using it with confi-
dence.
Continuous playing may cause dis-coloration of the pad, but this will not
affect the Pad’s function.
985
The explanations in this manual include illustrations that depict what
should typically be shown by the display. Note, however, that your unit
may incorporate a newer, enhanced version of the system (e.g., includes
newer sounds), so what you actually see in the display may not always
match what appears in the manual.

Here are some basic terms related to drum sets.
* The indications in parentheses ( ) show the names used on
the TD-4KP.
Bass Drum (Kick)
Played with a kick pedal, it’s the largest drum in the kit.
Snare Drum
The snare drum is the main “voice” of a drum kit.
Hi-Hat/Hi-Hat Pedal
An acoustic hi-hat uses 2 cymbals mounted on a hi-hat stand.
Pressing the hi-hat pedal opens and closes it.
The TD-4KP uses a single pad.
Tom (Tom 1, Tom 2)
These are usually mounted above the bass drum.
Floor Tom (Tom 3)
Sometimes called a bass tom, it either stands on it’s own legs or is
mounted on a stand.
Ride Cymbal
Usually mounted on the right side of the kit, the ride cymbal is
principle elements in keeping time.
Crash Cymbal
Smaller than the ride, the crash cymbal is mainly used for accents.

Playing
Drums are played using both hands and both feet. Here we’ll explain how to hold the sticks and use the pedals.
Holding the Sticks
The most common way to hold the sticks is called the “matched
grip” as shown in the illustrations below.
Left hand
Right hand
Using the Kick Pedal
The kick pedal can be pressed in either of two ways: “heel up” or
“heel down.”
Heel down
In this method, the entire bottom of your foot from heel to toe
stays in contact with the pedal. Use your ankle joint to make your
toes push down the pedal. This method allows more precise
control of the volume, and is often used in jazz and bossa nova.
Heel up
In this method, your heel floats above the pedal. With your heel off
the pedal, lower your entire foot to push down the pedal. This
method applies the full weight of your foot to the pedal, making it
easier for you to produce a stronger sounds than the heel down
method. This is often used in rock and pop.

Using the hi-hat
In an acoustic drum set, the hi-hat consists of two cymbals placed facing each other vertically on a hi-hat stand. The two cymbals can be
closed together by pressing the pedal.
A variety of playing techniques are possible, such as playing the cymbals with the pedal and/or playing them with sticks.
When you press the pedal, the two cymbals will come together (closed). When you release the pedal, the two cymbals will separate
(opened).
The TD-4KP lets you use five different hi-hat performance techniques.
Closed
With the hi-hat pedal pressed firmly, strike the pad with a stick. A
short “chick” sound will be heard.
Half-open
With the hi-hat pedal pressed gently, strike the pad with a stick. A
slightly longer “swish” sound will be heard.
Open
With the hi-hat pedal completely released, strike the pad with a
stick. An even longer “sound” than the half-open sound will be
heard.
Foot closed
Just press the pedal without using a stick. This sound will be softer
and shorter than the closed sound played with a stick. Useful for
keeping time with this tight sound.
Foot splash
Press and immediately release the pedal without using a stick.
This is equivalent to momentarily clashing the two cymbals of an
acoustic hi-hat. It produces a “splash” sound that is softer than the
open strike.

You can use dedicated buttons to quickly tune or muffle the sound. When you press the button, the sound you selected will be heard.
You cannot make tuning or muffling settings for pads to which an instrument (p. 27) in the cymbal-type instrument group (HIHAT,
CRASH, RIDE) is assigned. For such pads, the display will indicate “- - -.”

fig.d-Tuning-2.eps
3. While striking the pad to hear the sound, turn the [-
/+] dial to adjust the tuning.
Value: -600–0–+600
A negative (-) value will lower the pitch, and a positive (+)
value will raise the pitch.
4. Repeat steps 2–3 to adjust the tuning of each pad.
5. When you’ve finished tuning, press the [TUNING]
button to turn it off.
