Bridging the gap between beginners and intermediate drummers. The Roland HD-3 V-Drums Lite combines the beginner-friendliness of a compact, lightweight, inexpensive kit with the expressiveness that a more experienced drummer will appreciate. The result is a home-friendly electronic drum kit that won't break the bank and fulfills the needs of budding drummers with few compromises.

Improved pads for the toms, plus a Roland Mesh head snare provide a responsive and comfortable playing experience, and the Roland V-drums module offers 20 different kits which will cover your sonic needs for a variety of genres.

Here's what Roland say about the HD-3 V-Drums

Multi-Purpose V-Drums for Home Entertainment

Roland's V-Drums are world famous for their incredible sound and expressive performance. Today, the V-Drums family gets an exciting new addition with the HD-3 - a new-generation drum kit that expands the definition of drumming. This compact kit is powerful and expressive enough for pros yet fun and friendly enough for beginners, gamers, and home-entertainment enthusiasts. You don't need to be a drummer to enjoy this fun, cool instrument for every home.

Main Features

  • Fun, compact V-Drums for all levels of drummers, gamers, and home-entertainment enthusiasts
  • 20 preset kits with dedicated select buttons and informative backlit LCD
  • Beater-less kick with improved playing feel and low acoustic noise
  • New cloth-head toms with improved playing feel and design
  • Dual-trigger pads for snare and crash/ride to improve playability
  • Metronome with selectable sounds and adjustable tempo

Small Price, Big Performance

Its footprint is small, but the HD-3 sounds and performs impressively large. Based on Roland's legendary V-Drums, this little kit is a dream for beginners, casual players, gamers, as well as for parents, since the volume level can be completely controlled via volume knob and/or headphones.

Newly Improved Pads

Play the comfortable new cloth-head pads that feel and respond like acoustic toms. The beater-less kick pad has also been enhanced for comfort and improved playing response.

Play-Along Fun

The HD-3 is equipped with a mix input jack for connecting CD-players, MP3 players, and other audio sources. Jam along with your favourite songs, and control the blend of music and your live drumming through headphones or an amplifier (*).

* Optional PM-03 Personal Drum Monitor

Family Centrepiece

The HD-3 is a great way to enhance musical expression and enjoyment in your home. Used along with other popular instruments such as Roland's digital pianos, the HD-3 will serve as the nucleus for family fun and musical enrichment.

    I bought this as my 65th birthday present to myself! I create small group jazz backing tracks on the computer and found both drum loops and keyboard entry unsatisfactory. This is a great little kit to play stand-alone or to connect via MIDI. Nice selection of kits with Roland quality for sound and build. Real drummers would find them a bit small but they suit my purpose. Recommended by me (and my 6 year old grandson!).

    The product: just as expected, brand new, packed neatly, requires some assembly, but not too complicated! I'm a beginner, and don't have much to compare it to. It's a perfect no outside-sound-making instrument, i've been using it since the purchase, sometimes at 11pm, and no one complained. Gives you sone feel of drums without having an acoustic set, the air drumming which i was using before doesn't stand close in comparison...

    My take is: for a beginner without available special practice place (aka garage, basement etc where you can put an acoustic set and enjoy it whenever you please) this one is perfect.

    Delivery/customer service: were both excellent!

    Would use again!

    Excellent kit for our 8yr old son.

    Craig | Purchase date: 04 December 2012

    Very pleased with this purchase. I decided to go with Roland although more expensive than other starter kits it is good quality for the money. This was purchased for my seven year old son and the ability to play through headphones is essential!

    Good range of kits for a novice.

    Fantastic product - perfect for the little drummer in the family!

    In view of the price, it is absolutely a good buy. My boy goes to it after a day of work in school. It seems quite relaxing.

    I bought a cheap set of drums off eBay and they stopped working within a day! So after looking around i went for the Roland hd3.They are fantastic!Easy to setup,don't take up much room and sound great.Mine came with stool,headphones and sticks.There are loads of free Roland v-drum lessons on line which are great for beginners like myself. Recommended.

    Great Product and great service. Had tried different e-kits but the Roland stood out compared to other brands I tried. Better feel Due to the mesh snare head as opposed to rubber which the others had, also better quality sound on each of the Hd-3's kits. I found the other makes didn't sound as realistic or natural. The kit is pretty sturdy and very well made. Great deal too with the seat, sticks and headphones. Have done a bit of home recording with it and so far so good. I think for the price you can't go wrong.

    I don't usually bother writing reviews but I found the staff very friendly and helpful when on the phone and received the kit within a couple of days of ordering online plus I find it a great product.

    Great drum kit. Easy to assemble, very good quality sound and lots of features. Highly recommended.
