I think I've heard that Roland doesn't recognize purchases on "eBay" as far as their warranties go. I was hoping to get some insight
before I make the move to buy the TD-12s and later find out there's no warranty.

Perhaps you should try sending an email to Roland, or checking their FAQs on their website. Even if they don't give you a straight answer, is it really worth the risk at that point? I bought and SPD-20 on the Bay about 4 years ago and have had no problems with it, but maybe I just got lucky. At that time, it was worth the risk for me. Good luck.
