Roland V-Drums Acoustic Design VAD506 Electronic Drum Set - Product Information
The Roland V-Drums Acoustic Design Drum Sets offer the look and feel of acoustic drums along with control and effectiveness of electronic drums. The VAD506 features a classic 5 piece design with full depth and diameter wooden shells. All the shells and cymbals are mounted on double braced chrome stands that not only have the look of a traditional drum set but offer an easy, faster set-up and break-down over rack mounted electronic drum sets. The VAD506 looks like an acoustic drum set to the audience, but the depth and variety of sounds delivered creates mystery and keep the audience guessing.
Shells, Heads and Stands
All the drums feature Roland's multi-ply tension adjustable mesh heads and advanced digital sensor technology triggering the sounds in the TD-27 Drum Module. Roland's 14″ digital snare and 18″ Ride both feature multiple sensors allowing for every stroke, ghost note, roll and swell along with rim shots, cross sticking patterns are detected and expressed with a natural feel and detail.
The wood shells add to the dynamic sound experience by giving a proper acoustic drum stick rebound that is even customizable to your playing style through the tension adjustable heads. The kick drum design allows for air to be moved inside the shell delivering the air pressure and resistance drummers are accustomed too.
