    Space-Saving Kit with Shallow-Depth Shells and TD-17 Module

    The VAD306 is a unique V-Drums Acoustic Design Drum kit, Designed to be purposefully compact while maintaining the distinctive acoustic aesthetic that this new series of drums brings to the market. The footprint is the same as what a Mid-Level V-Drums set would bring, making it ideal for home use and tight stages. Cut down shallow shells save space and weight but from a payers perspective they feel instantly familiar and help any drummer to feel at home behind the set. Double braced tom stands and boom arms help to complete the aesthetic while keeping everything rock solid and maintaining the acoustic theme. And with it's organic, expressive sound, the TD-17 module provides all the acoustic tone and dynamic that you could want in an electronic drum kit.

    Powerful Sound and Realistic Expression

    The heart of the VAD306 is the TD-17 Module, filled with sounds derived from the acclaimed TD-50 sound engine. It features a vast collection of modern and vintage drum kits as well as some electronic percussion kits as well for those of you who want to be a little bit more experimental, all of which are sampled in ultra high quality audio detail and every possible velocity and head strike captured. Roland prismatic sound model is then married to these samples and it produces complex, true to life tonal range and smooth transitions between hits. The result of all this is a sound that not only tonally sounds like an acoustic drum kit but it also behaves like one as well.

    Create (and Craft) Your Signature Drum Kit

    The TD-17 module features a wide range of ready-to-play kits, including 10 new acoustic-focused presets created for the VAD306. While the preset kits sound fantastic, it's easy to dive deeper and build your ultimate drum setup with intuitive editing tools. Think of the module as a huge warehouse of drums and cymbals from different eras, which you can mix and match in any combination. After that, swap the heads, change the tuning, add muffling, and even change the virtual space you're playing in. Take things even further by loading your own samples and combining them with onboard instruments, crafting personalized kits that no other drummer can claim.

    Larger Pads and a Wider Playing Spread

    Acoustic drums are usually bigger than electronic drum pads. The size of each drum adds to the overall experience, not just visually but also in stick feel and physical layout. Which is why the VAD306 features a 12" snare and floor tom, two 10" rack toms, and an 18" kick, creating a naturally wide playing spread. The shells are made of wood too, enhancing the authentic acoustic feel under the sticks and beater

    The Natural Feel of Acoustic Drums

    Roland's legendary multi-ply, tension-adjustable mesh heads contribute significantly to the authentic playing feel, giving you stick rebound that's customizable for your individual playing style. And when you bury the beater into the specially designed kick drum, you physically move air inside the shell, creating air pressure and resistance that feels remarkably like playing an acoustic kick

    Shallow Shells, Deeper Performance

    While the shallow-depth tom and kick shells in the VAD306 kit save space and weight, they don't scrimp on performance. Each drum features custom sensors engineered to provide natural response and premium feel in an amazingly compact size.

    Double-Braced Chrome Drum Stands

    The way acoustic drums and cymbals are mounted not only projects a classic image-it also influences the playing feel. The tom pads mount on the same stands used for acoustic toms-so they feel just right when they're hit. And every stand is double-braced for rock-solid stability, and easily adjusted to suit your preferred layout.

    Powerful Practice Tools and Bluetooth Connectivity

    The TD-17 module is packed with practice features to help you become a better drummer. Built-in Bluetooth allows smartphones and laptops to stream audio to the module without a cable, perfect for immersive jam sessions with headphones. Play along with favorite music tracks or mix the sound from a YouTube lesson video with the kit. It's also possible to play songs direct from an SD card and record your playing at any time. Onboard coach functions help you focus on skill building, and even track your progress over time. And the metronome can be set for different time signatures and note values, helping improve your inner clock.
