The all new VAD706 takes the electronic drumming experience where it’s never gone before, combining Roland’s flagship V-Drums technologies with the hand-crafted detail of premium-grade acoustic drums.
This flagship V-Drums Acoustic Design kit features a digital snare, ride, and the all new hi-hat pads to bring ultra-detailed playability to the three most nuanced pieces in the kit. The next-generation TD-50X module provides unmatched tone, feel, and response, coupled with deep editing tools to fully personalise your sound and pro connectivity to take on any playing situation.
Full-size wood shells are included throughout, with advanced sensing systems that deliver real-deal acoustic feel. And with four eye-popping finishes available, you can choose the look that perfectly matches your personal style and taste.
Not only does the VAD706 sound and feel great—it’s also stunning 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.
Roland TD-50X Sound Module
The Prismatic Sound Modelling in the TD-50X makes electronic drums come to life like no other system can, infusing multi-layer samples recorded in world-class studios with sophisticated behaviour modelling techniques refined over more than two decades. Inspired by a prism—which refracts a single ray of light into every colour in the spectrum—Roland’s revolutionary approach produces an unlimited array of sonic colours with every stick hit. The initial attack is followed by a complex mix of rich overtones, just like playing acoustic drums and cymbals. You can feel the sound changing in reaction to your expression, creating that magical, interactive bond that fully immerses you in the emotion of the moment. From subtle ghost notes and detailed articulations to the loudest and most intense playing, your drumming has no boundaries with the TD-50X.
The TD-50X allows you to customise 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.
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. With 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!
Precision multi-sensors in the snare, ride, and all new VH-14D 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.
The brand new VH-14D Digital Hi-Hats take electronic hi-hat playing to new heights, offering touch sensitivity, tonal variation, and open/closed resolution never before available.
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 customisable 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.
