From the club to the studio, Roland’s VAD (V-Drums Acoustic Design) hybrid drum kits are designed with one goal in mind: to blend the look and response of a traditional acoustic kit with the groundbreaking electronics of the V-Drums family. Real wood shells with Roland’s legendary tuneable mesh heads supply a quiet and custom response, from the crack of a cranked snare to the wooly give of a classic kick drum. And Roland’s rubberized multi-zone V-Cymbals serve up the expression you need to craft dynamic and compelling musical ideas night after night. Roland’s next-level TD-27 sound module and latest digital pads provide an unprecedented level of acoustic realism. It’s all powered by Roland’s Prismatic Sound Modeling engine and PureAcoustic Ambience Technology, which allow you to tune, muffle, size, process, and re-mike any piece in your kit. Kitted up with a full set of traditional hardware (not included), the Roland VAD503 sports a formidable look that’ll make your performance stand out in fresh new ways.
Browsing kits, tweaking sounds, and saving custom presets in the VAD503 are walks in the park, thanks to the TD-27 module’s dedicated knobs and hands-on interface. Tuning and muffling have their own controls. And buttons around the jog wheel ensure you never get lost in sub-menus. The knurled knobs and rubberized selectors all feel great in the hands — which is important on a tool you might use for hours on end.
The VAD503’s PureAcoustic Ambience Technology creates an immersive soundstage that really makes you feel like you’re there. PureAcoustic tech lets you dive deep into sound tweaking, too, allowing you to adjust virtual microphone positions like a real recording studio, then balance each part of the kit with outboard-style FX processors.
Every onboard kit within the VAD503 is crafted to sound great without tweaks. But for times when you need a custom kit for a particular performance, Prismatic Sound Modeling — derived from the flagship TD-50 — has you covered. You have control over each drum shell’s tone and tuning. Each cymbal’s size and liveliness. You can even control virtual mic placement to dial in the perfect amount of natural ambience and life. Once you’ve found your sound, sweeten kick, snare, or toms with onboard FX, including rich reverb and smooth tape-like compression.
Nothing looks and plays like a wood drum. The VAD503’s full-sized wood shells and tuneable mesh heads supply the feel of your favorite acoustic kit, all with an easy-to-control acoustic output that’s easy to control onstage or in a residential setting. Shells come decked out in a premium Roland Midnight Sparkle wrap and feature chrome hardware for an unmistakable look from the platform or in the studio.
