    Rolands state of the art digital pad technology brings an even deeper realism to the V-Drums experience.

    Roland's Legendary multi-ply, tension adjustable mesh heads make a huge contribution to the authentic playing feel, giving you stick rebound that can be changed to suit your specific style and need of it at the time, and when you bury the beater into the bass drum there is physical air that is being moved inside the bass drum which allows it to feel almost identical to the real thing.

    Roland VAD503 V-Drum Kit. Go Deeper with Prismatic Sound Modeling

    Derived from the flagship TD-50, the TD-27 sound module is filled with drums that live and breathe like acoustic instruments. We start by sampling the finest drums, percussion, and cymbals-both vintage and modern-in world-class recording studios. Roland's unique Prismatic sound modeling is then applied to the samples, bringing them alive with proprietary behavior modeling refined over two decades. Every time you strike a drum or cymbal, you're not simply triggering a canned sound-you're playing a full-bodied instrument that responds like its acoustic counterpart in every way, with an unprecedented sonic range at your command.

This is all possible withing the TD-27 module, allowing you to craft and customize drum kits for any style or genre of playing. Just strike a pad to select it, then use the hands on controls and intuitive editing tools to get the sound just how you like it. your edits are saved automatically to so no need to worry about doing hours of work to then lose it all in the blink of an eye. It's even possible to load your own samples into the module and then layer them with internal sounds to add even more personal sounds to the drum kit.

    Roland VAD503 V-Drum Kit. 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. Newly developed thin V-Cymbals also attach to the stands with a special pivot mount, for a natural acoustic-style swing when played. And every stand is double-braced for rock-solid stability, and easily adjusted to suit your preferred layout.

    Roland VAD503 V-Drum Kit. PureAcoustic Ambience Technology

    New PureAcoustic Ambience Technology optimises each kit, creating an incredibly natural and immersive sound field when playing. But you can go deeper too, and adjust the mic position on each drum kit, and dial in the overall sound with the newly developed overhead mic simulator. Finally, advanced onboard multi-effects and mixing capabilities give you the power of a full-scale studio console, with transient, parametric EQs, compressors, reverbs, delays, and more at your command.
