Completely Immersive Experience
Boasting impressive looks and a familiar layout while offering the level of playability you'd expect from a high-end acoustic kit, the Roland VAD506 is a completely immersive acoustic drumming experience.
The 14" stainless steel snare, 10" and 12" rack toms, 14" floor tom and 20" kick drum are all constructed with full-depth wood shells so you get authentic, acoustic drum playing feel.
With the Roland VAD506 electronic drum kit, you also get a full complement of cymbals which includes a 12" V-Hi-Hat, 14" and 16" crash cymbals, both which with thin profiles and textured finishes, and an 18" ride, offering premium playability while completing the natural drum kit aesthetic on stage.
Further enhancing the authentic feel, these drums feature Roland's highly acclaimed, multi-ply, tension-adjustable mesh heads. You can even adjust the stick rebound to match your own preference.
Furthermore, the specially designed kick drum allows you to physically move the air when you strike it with the beater, creating the same air pressure and resistance you'd feel from an acoustic kick drum.
Double-braced chrome drum stands are used throughout, adding to the great look and authentic feel while providing rock-solid stability.
What's more, the V-Cymbals attach to the stands with a special pivot mount so that they have a natural "swing" when you play them.
Powerful Sound and Realism
Derived from Roland's flagship TD-50 electronic drum module, the heart of the Roland VAD506 is super impressive TD-27 module.
The finest drums, percussion and cymbals from both vintage and modern eras have been expertly sampled in world-class recording studios.
Using Roland's unique Prismatic sound modelling and proprietary behaviour modelling technology that has been developed and refined over more than twenty years, the samples are brought to life.
Whenever you strike a drum or cymbal on the Roland V-Drums VAD506, you don't just trigger a sample; you produce the full sound of the instrument responding exactly as it would if it were the acoustic equivalent.
Create Your Own Customised Drum Kit
One of the greatest features offered by the Roland VAD506's TD-27 module is the ability to create and customise your very own drum kits.
When you want to alter an acoustic drum kit, you swap head types, adjust the tuning, apply damping, tweak the snare wire tension, change the kick beater and more.
With the Roland VAD506's TD-27 electronic drum module you can do all those same things.
Just select the pad you want to edit by striking it then use the hands-on controls and intuitive editing tools to get the sound to you own exact specifications..
For added convenience, your edits will be automatically saved so you can focus on your playing.
Furthermore, thanks to new PureAcoustic Ambience Technology that optimises each kit, the Roland V-Drums Acoustic Design VAD506 gives you amazingly natural and immersive virtual sound fields to play in.
If you want to further customise your experience, you can create your own personal virtual space too!
You can adjust the microphone position on each drum kit and adjust the overall sound with the newly developed overhead mic simulator.
Plus, with the VAD506's advanced, built-in multi-effects and mixing capabilities, you get the kind of power and flexibility you'd expect from a full-scale studio console, with transient, parametric EQs, compressors, reverbs, delays and more all available to you.
For the ultimate in personalisation, you can even load your own samples and layer them with the built-in sounds of the Roland TD-27.
But it doesn't end there; you can physically expand your drum kit too.
With three auxiliary trigger inputs, you can easily connect additional tom and cymbal pads to the TD-27 module and expand your performance.
Thanks to the TD-27 module's trio of auxiliary trigger inputs, you can easily add tom and cymbal pads to expand your performance capabilities.
Perfect for Stage and Studio
