Roger Taylor (Duran Duran) on the Roland TD-30KV V-Drums
Roger Taylor and his V-Drums TD-30KV electronic drum kit
When it comes to the world of electronic drums, Roger Taylor was in at the ground floor. From the New Wave scene of the early 80s to Duran Duran’s 2010 album ‘All You Need Is Now’, Roger has always embraced the musical possibilities of electronic percussion. During this time, it’s been clear that Duran Duran didn’t fit into any particular box. The band has evolved, keeping their music fresh and the hits have continued throughout the nineties and the noughties. Duran Duran are now in the studio penning the follow-up release to their acclaimed 2010 album, their second with über-producer Mark Ronson at the helm. As the album takes shape, Roger is using the new TD-30KV V-Drums kit, which replaces his previous TD-20KX kit used on the band’s last album and tour.
