Default Drum sizes used for Roland v-drum sounds

This may sound like a weird question, but just humor me. I have had the Roland TD-6V v-drums for a couple years now. I have been playing acoustic drums at my church, so I decided to get an acoustic set for home. I originally went to an electronic set because I was not good at tuning.

Now I want to improve my tuning skills and I want to use my Roland v-drums as a basis for the basic pitch I want on the acoustic set. What I am wondering is does anyone know the standard sizes that Roland uses for their v-drum sound samples. Some of the kick and snare names designate a size, but most don't. The toms are named T1 - T4, for tom 1 thru tom 4. My acoustic set has a 14" snare, with the toms being 12", 13", 16".

Now, before someone says it, I am fully aware that my acoustic set will not sound exactly like the electronic set. That is not what I am looking for. I am looking for the basic pitch and the step between each drum. Any help is greatly appreciated.

i have a roland td6 also, from what i can tell it seems like their toms are close to your standard sizes.

T1-12"
T2-13"
T3-14" or 15"
T4-16" or 18"

I have a TD6 and TD10.

To my ear, it seems they vary depending on which set you dial up.

Some seem to be 10-12-14-16

Others sound more like 12-13-14/15-16
