Not: kick pedal, snare stand, hi-hat stand and drum throne are not included.
The VAD706 not only sounds and feels great—it’s also beautiful to behold. With its full-size shells, two-piece hi-hat, large cymbals, double-braced chrome stands, and choice of four gorgeous shell finishes, this premium kit has a presence that makes you want to drum all day and show it off to everyone. Choose from Gloss Natural, Gloss Cherry, or Gloss Ebony finishes, which offer an artisan look with stained maple veneers and transparent gloss coats. Or make a statement with the deep Pearl White finish and its bold, attention-grabbing vibe.
Our groundbreaking digital pad technology is a major leap forward in electronic drumming, putting unmatched depth and dimension under your sticks. Precision multi-sensors in the snare, ride, and hi-hat pads work in complete harmony with the TD-50X module, capturing every nuance with incredible definition and detail. Lightning-fast detection enables you to play all your natural acoustic techniques, such as muting the ride with a finger touch or switching seamlessly between head, rimshot, and cross stick playing on the snare. And the VH-14D takes electronic hi-hat playing to new heights, offering touch sensitivity, tonal variation, and open/closed resolution never before available—until now.
The VAD706 features Roland’s famous multi-ply mesh heads, with three-layer heads on the snare and floor tom and two-layer heads on the rack toms providing natural stick resistance and rebound that’s customizable for your individual playing style. Burying the beater into the specially designed kick drum is completely satisfying, thanks to physical air resistance that feels just like playing an acoustic kick. The organic experience extends to the toms as well, with the real wood shells and traditional mounts providing a feel that’s uncannily acoustic in nature.
Imagine acoustic drums that are set up, mic’d, processed, and mixed in a world-class studio—that’s what you get when you call up a preset on the TD-50X module. Developed with top drummers and recording engineers, these inspiring kits let you take on any style at the touch of a button, from traditional jazz to full-throttle metal.
Going beyond the presets, the TD-50X allows you to customize your sound at every level—just as you would with an acoustic kit. Make quick adjustments to tuning and muffling, or dive deep and build a kit from the ground up by selecting shell depths, drumhead types, cymbal characteristics, and much more. Then put the kit in the space of your choice using PureAcoustic Ambience, with full control of room type, reverberation, and other parameters at your fingertips.
After you’ve tweaked the details of your kit, make it fully come alive with the TD-50X’s impressive array of studio tools. Adjust mic settings for various kit elements, then dial in sounds with equalizers, compressors, and other processing. And for spaciousness and color, tap into the wide selection of high-quality reverbs and multi-effects.
With a rear panel loaded with connectivity, the TD-50X module is ready to take on the practical needs of any playing situation. Stereo XLR master outs and eight TRS direct outs allow you to send any drums you like to an audio console via balanced connections. For computer-based music production, you have the ability to send up to 32 channels of digital audio over USB for premium-quality transfer. MIDI I/O is also supported over USB and traditional five-pin connectors.
Using the TD-50X module’s four auxiliary analog trigger inputs, you can easily expand the VAD706 as your needs grow. Augment your setup with more cymbal pads, another floor tom, or a small trigger pad like the Roland BT-1. Or double up by adding an additional kick drum for maximum stage impact.
The TD-50X module is filled with features to develop your technique and make practice sessions fun and rewarding. Improve your timing with the built-in metronome and Coach mode exercises, or simply jam along with music played from a smartphone or laptop. The onboard recorder lets you capture and review your playing at any time, complete with the ability to export audio (with or without backing music) for sharing with others. And you can extend your practice even further with Melodics™, a free desktop app that comes with 40 lessons, plus unlimited access via a subscription when you’re ready for more.
