The new Roland TD-50K2 is an updated version of the TD-50K kit that came out in 2016. What has changed is a lot though. The TD-50 has been totally revamped and is now the TD-50X. It also now comes with the brand new VH-14D 14" digital hi hat. Roland upgraded the kick drum to the KD-140-BC as well. This kit features the new "Thin" 14" and 16" crash cymbals for an improved playing experience.
From the Roland press release.
"Loaded with Roland’s most expressive drum sounds and playing detection technologies to date, the TD-50K2 delivers flagship-grade performance in a scaled-down size. Our groundbreaking digital snare, ride, and hi-hat pads bring ultra-detailed playability to the three most nuanced pieces in the kit, complete with full-size playing surfaces for maximum drumming comfort. The next-generation TD-50X module provides unmatched tone, feel, and response, plus deep editing tools to personalize your sound and pro connectivity to take on any playing situation. Compact tom and kick pads minimize the overall footprint without sacrificing playability, making this kit a great choice for home playing, small stages, and anywhere that space is tight."
