This posting is for a set of Roland V-Drums with a TD-10 sound module, and also a Roland KC550 amplifier. I am not the original owner but I have owned this equipment for over 10 years and it has been noticeably well-used on and off.
Some of the nuts and bolts on the pipe assemblies may not be original, but I'm pretty sure none are missing other than a fastener that tightens on the base of the module, which I don't believe had been included anyway when I bought it used. It still holds the module in place securely. One of the cymbal boom arms also has a non-original post (the piece the cymbal pad rests on). Also, the mesh heads on the kick drum pad and one of the snare/tom pads have been swapped. The pad that was on the kick drum had a hole worn in it, and I figured since there were already a total of 4 toms that it would be better for the kick drum to have the head in better shape. This was an easy procedure and new mesh heads can be purchased if desired. I would also be willing to exclude the pad with the lesser head from the package and adjust the price if the buyer prefers. I do not have any thrones, kick drum pedals or snare stands to include, unfortunately. That pretty much summarizes the cosmetic flaws about the equipment. Other than that, all components are in fully functional condition in terms of triggering mechanisms, cables and hardware.
In total, there are two 10" tom pads, three "12 snare/tom pads, one 12" kick drum pad, one hi-hat pad, one ride cymbal pad, and two crash cymbal pads. There are eleven 1/4" patch cables which connect each pad and the hi-hat control to the TD-10 module. The stereo, or TRS cables, must be used to connect the cymbals, snare, and hi-hat control. There are an additional two aux inputs on the rear of the module for adding optional pads. The TD-10 Module was been upgraded with a Roland TDW-1 expansion card, giving the library over 900 sounds. All pads can be assigned with whatever sound you'd like, using the settings in the module.
The KC550 amp is actually a keyboard amplifier, but was one of the recommended amps for electronic drums at the time. It encloses a 15" speaker and a horn, and has four stereo channels. I tried to clean up the exterior of the amp as well as the drum components the best I could, but only had so much success with the amp due to the felt covering.
I am willing to negotiate in terms of possibly selling the pieces individually, such as the amp, the snare/tom pad with the worn head, or all the pads and rack together, but I'm firm on my asking price for the whole bundle, and I believe it's held its value. I actually wouldn't mind hanging onto it and will be sad to see it go, but I bought it in the first place to record with and to use for recording MIDI, but haven't done any of that in a while. Plus, I just bought a new acoustic drum kit that sits where these electronic drums had been, and I don't have a convenient place to store the V-Drums and amp for the time being. But it's quite a useful setup for a number of applications, and since current electronic drum sets by Roland and Yamaha that have comparable capabilities are selling for upwards of $5,000 new, I will be content keeping it if I'm unable to get a substantial return on my investment.
