Roland's V-Drums have a great reputation in the drumming world as the most realistic, most authentic, and best sounding electronic drum kits available. They offer kits for all levels of experience, laying out a perfect drumming journey for all. The VAD-103 thrives off of this reputation, providing an easy to play and high-quality kit that stands high above others within its price range.
The main benefit of electronic drum kits is that they're much quieter than acoustic drums. This makes them perfect for home drumming while being more than capable to perform in live or studio environments. The VAD-103 is designed to be quieter than most other e-kits on the market, without sacrificing on the authentic feel or responses. A full range of mesh heads minimise pad noise, while the special damping kick pad reduces both noise and vibration. Even the hardware on the VAD-103 is designed to reduce vibration and noise transfer, with the option of additional noise eater accessories for further noise reduction if you choose.
Another huge benefit of electronic drum kits is the direct connection to music production software. Simply plug your drum kit into your computer using the USB drive and record audio and MIDI drum tracks in any DAW.
The VAD-103 offers a fun and productive drumming experience, with lessons and tracks to drum along to. Additionally, onboard Bluetooth capability allows you to connect a smartphone, tablet or computer to play along to your favourite songs through the module.
The TD-07 sound module is the heart of the VAD-103 Drum Kit. It is a powerful and responsive sound module which meets the demands of the fastest playing. Scroll through the vast sound options and discover the range of acoustic drums and percussion, all of which are captured in exceptional detail in pro studios. There’s also a wide range of electronic sounds as well, with the ability to customise, edit and evolve each sound to meet your requirements.
The TD-07 includes a range of ready-to-play preset kits that you can play right out of the box. Using the extensive drum library, you can switch out one of the sounds for another. This allows you to change your snare drum, mix up the toms, change the cymbals or add a larger kick drum. You can also tune each individual drum, as well as changing the ambient environment and EQ for each sound. This allows you to transform the pre-set sounds to achieve the perfect sound for your mix.
V-Drums inspire drummers with a wide range of real, acoustic sounds with the responses to match. The pads are fitted with advanced precision sensors that detect every hit, roll, flam and ghost note perfectly. You can also achieve realistic cymbal chokes organically, the same way you would on an acoustic kit. The Roland VAD-103 V-Drums Acoustic Design Drum Kit ensures that there is no delay between hitting a pad and hearing the chosen sound. This is a key feature for us drummers, as even the slightest of delay can be detrimental to the timing and flow of your performance.
The unique double-layer mesh design feels extremely close to playing an acoustic drumhead, with the stick resistance and rebound to match. The adjustable tension allows you to fine-tune the feel of each head using any standard drum key. This enables you to dial in the exact stick response to optimise your performance.
Drumming along to your favourite songs is made easy with Bluetooth connectivity. Simply connect your smartphone, tablet, or computer wirelessly to the module and listen to your songs through the module. If you do not have access to a Bluetooth device, you can connect using an aux cable instead. The Bluetooth capability also offers a quick and easy way to record your performances using MIDI transmission. This allows you to record MIDI data in music production apps cable-free.
The Roland TD-07 module allows you to send stereo sound and multi-channel MIDI data to a Mac or Windows computer via a single USB cable. This allows you to record your performances into any DAW with exceptional ease.
Melodics is a desktop app that connects to your V-Drums, providing step-by-step lessons. This helps you to learn new beats, improve on your rhythm and timing, record yourself, and even review your own performances to see where you could improve. Included are 40 free lessons, which you can play through as many times as you like. When you’re ready to learn even more, you can subscribe for unlimited lessons.
