    Product Description

    Please Note: you will need sticks, a drum stool, headphones, a kick pedal, a hi-hat stand and a snare stand (all sold separately) to get the most out of this kit. Alternatively, why not check out our all-encompassing drum bundle options here. 

    The VAD506 isn’t like other e-kits. You can see that just by looking at it. It marries an acoustic look with a beating electronic heart. Roland continue to innovate in the percussion space and this is the latest result. They’ve produced a kit that both looks and sounds the part – whether you’re performing live or just practicing at home. The full five-piece configuration features a sleek finish and is mounted on chrome, double-braced stands; the line between acoustic and electronic has been convincingly blurred here.

    Realistic Feel

    Roland’s renowned tension-adjustable, multi-ply mesh heads feel incredibly authentic to use; you can even tweak the level of stick rebound to suit your own style. Further realism can be found in the bass drum. Each hit moves air within the shell, building a level of resistance and air pressure which is almost indistinguishable from playing a traditional kick.

    Full depth wood shells across the board improve stick feel, accuracy, and further reinforces the acoustic aesthetic. The more natural, wider layout is instantly familiar to any drummer. As soon as you sit down behind it, you’ll be completely comfortable and ready to get stuck in.

    Industry leading architecture found in the ride and snare pads delivers even more expression and control. Speedy processing and a set of sensors allow you to use techniques that are usually reserved for an acoustic kit. Play rim shots; play ghost notes; play cross stick; all in astounding levels of detail. The ride can be quickly muted with just a touch of the bell/bow too!

    Prismatic Sound Modelling

    The TD-27 sound module is packed chock full of drums which faithfully recreate their acoustic counterparts. These sounds have been produced in the best possible way too. An extensive sampling process of various cymbals, percussion and drums (encompassing modern and vintage) took place in some of the best recording studios in the world. These were then seasoned with Roland’s Prismatic Sound Modelling. This process helps to bring the drums to life with a behaviour and response that mirrors true acoustic sets.

    Custom Configurations

    Build custom kits from the ground up to suit a wide range of musical scenarios. Intuitive controls ensure you can select and edit each characteristic of your kit – right down to the most minute features of each drum and cymbal. Change the tuning, add dampening, switch out the head type, increase/decrease the tension of your snare wire, swap the kick beater material. Anything you usually do on an acoustic set can be done here!

    Any edits you do make are saved immediately. Experiment even further by layering any samples you’ve uploaded with the onboard sounds from the module.

    PureAcoustic Ambience Tech

    This new technology produces authentic, all-encompassing sound – no matter the kind of drum kit you select on the module. You can tweak the finest of details as well. Change the position of the microphones on each set; use the overhead mic simulator and find the perfect overall tones; harness the power of built-in audio effects and mixing tools (including compressors, EQ’s, reverbs, delays etc) to craft your ideal drum sound.

    Versatile Connectivity

    A variety of connections benefit both studio and live use. The TD-27 module boasts stereo outputs for the complete drum sound. There are then two direct outputs for sending the snare and kick to an external mixing console. This is ideal for onstage performances.

    An in-built USB audio interface is ideal for music production. There are 28 audio channels available to you over just one cable! MIDI is supported too; you can either connect via a dedicated I/O, or simply using USB. Triggering sounds in your computer software is both simple and extremely fun.

    Easy Expansion

    Three auxiliary trigger inputs allow you to add more cymbal and tom pads to expand your kits layout. You could even add another bass drum for some serious double-kick power! Whichever you choose, you’ll be expanding upon the creative potential of your kit!

    Work on Your Chops

    Onboard practice modes help you to develop better technique, all while tracking your overall progress. A metronome works to improve your timing; you can even record your playing on the fly and listen back to it. This is super useful if you want to pick out precisely what you need to improve on! In-built Bluetooth lets you play along with your favourite tracks from a laptop or mobile phone.

    Sturdy Hardware

    Your cymbals and the drums themselves are mounted on sturdy double-braced chrome stands. This means they’re incredibly solid and reliable platforms while you play. They can be easily adjusted too to suit your personal preferences. Having stands like this doesn’t just create a more acoustic aesthetic – they lead to a more realistic playing feel as well!

    Specially made, slim V-Cymbals attach to the stands via an innovative pivot mount. This leads to a more natural acoustic swing which is usually only attributed to traditional acoustic cymbals.

    Still getting my head around this kit but have to say they are beautifully made and solid right down to the hardware, the actual drums have a lovely feel to them when playing. My only criticism is the bracket on the base of the TD27 module is offset on the right hand side and makes it rather awkward for a left hander.

    The kit is so much fun to play

    Trusted Customer9th Aug 2020

    Amazing- first electric kit that “feels” as good as an acoustic. The sensitivity of the pads is spot on and the kick drum is the best electric pad I’ve played. Has enough weight to fool you it’s a real drum. Acoustic noise of the set is similar to other electric kits- the bass drum pad is about the same volume as a Gibraltar practice pad. Features of the module are also great- Bluetooth is very convenient. Overall, an incredible set of drums.
