Roland V-Drums Acoustic Design VAD506 Kit
The ultimate immersive e-drums experience.
Can you believe it’s taken forty-plus years for an electronic drumset to emerge that looks and feels nearly identical to an acoustic kit? Well, the time has come, folks. Roland’s new Acoustic Design series of V-Drums marries a full acoustic drumset playing experience with the convenience, customization, and control of electronics.
There are currently two Acoustic Design setups with full-sized shells available. The VAD503 is a four-piece kit with two cymbals (crash and ride) and a hi-hat. The VAD506, which we have for review, is a five-piece configuration with two crashes, a ride, and a hi-hat. Both kits come with the intuitive and powerful TD-27 module, a full set of Roland’s new double-braced cymbal/tom stands, and a snare stand.
