Roland are known for their V-drums line of electronic drum kits. These are heralded as some of the best available both for sound and playability. Some of this technology has filtered through to make some great new developments which can really expand your playing. Check out the latest from NAMM 2018.
When playing a traditional acoustic kit it can be a challenge to attain the same quality sound between venues. Life is made easier when using the Roland TM-6 Pro. Smart, simple and discreet, this new trigger module gives you instant and reliable access to every drum sound in the book, on every stage you play.
With 500 premium samples you can find your sounds fast. As any gigging drummer knows, setting up an acoustic kit is one of the toughest jobs out there, so any help towards that will be important. Roland give you stacks of samples which will give you solid reliability wherever you’re playing. For anyone looking to get into hybrid drumming, the TM-6 is complete set up. Whether it’s augmenting your acoustic drums with tight and realistic samples or whether you want to couple your hits with some electronic mayhem, the TM-6 can do it all. There’s room for another 500 user samples too, so you can really take your playing as far as your imagination will let you.
As the horizon between rock and electronic music becomes ever blurred, let yourself be on the pioneering edge and take it to the next level.
If you’re looking for a plug and play solution, the RT-MicS is ideal. Simply clip this little device onto your snare or tom and benefit from the reliability and scope of drum triggers. You’ll still get your standard acoustic sound, but this will be combined with a sample.
Your playing will stand out as you can layer up your drum sound with one of eight samples. There’s claps, snares and percussion, but as the presets are fully customisable, you can go with whatever samples you decide.
This great device takes all the complication out of developing a hybrid setup. It’s a simple and intuitive entry point that will open a world of possibilities. Need more crack on your snare? Or perhaps adding a synth sub to your tom will suit your sound. This is a flexible device that will certainly push your creativity as a drummer.
If you’re happy playing an electronic kit but aren’t quite feeling it, this is the add-on for you. This works just like a real hi hat and features a top and bottom hat for more authentic playability. It even clamps onto a regular hi hat stand so you can use your acoustic hardware. With advanced triggering and motion sensor technology you’ll barely notice the difference, and can take your electronic playing to the next level.
