Versatile electronic drum kit with real wood shells.
The Roland Acoustic Design VAD506 Electronic Double Bass Drum Kit is more than an upgrade—it redefines what an e-kit can be. After years of experimentation, Roland realized that you just can’t fake the acoustic look. The Roland VAD 506 kit features real wood shells, built to full depth and diameter, and fitted with chrome hardware. Audiences will recognize the classic six-piece double bass drum configuration, finished in chrome for the snare and black sparkle for the toms and kicks. The hi-hat and kick drums are even compatible with the player's preferred stand and pedals, and the snare mounts on a standard snare stand (hi-hat stand, snare stand, double tom stand and kick pedals sold separately). With the latest Roland sound module and digital sensor technology, this e-kit is more versatile than an acoustic kit could ever be.
Real Wood Shells and Textured Cymbal Pads in Acoustic Sizes
The Roland VAD 506 V-Drums electronic kit makes any drummer feel instantly at home. It features Roland’s most advanced V-Drum pads, arranged in an acoustic configuration: 14" stainless steel snare, plus 10" and 12" rack toms, 14" floor tom and two 20" kicks constructed with full-depth wood shells. This means they look perfectly at home on stage or in the studio. They also offer the same weighted response drummers expect from acoustic drums. A full complement of cymbal pads includes a 12" hi-hat, 14" and 16" crashes (both with thin profiles and textured finishes) and an 18" ride, for superior playability and natural appearance. The hi-hats mount on any standard hi-hat stand, and the kicks are compatible with the player's choice of kick pedals (not included).
Digital Sensor Technology on 14” Snare Drum and 18” Ride Cymbal
Roland’s cutting-edge digital sensors bring even deeper realism to the V-Drums experience. The digital snare and ride pads connect to the TD-27 module via USB cables, allowing the sensors to work with the sound engine to create unprecedented realism. Drummers can apply their skills to these pads in a completely natural way, and they will respond in kind. Ghost notes, rim shots and cross stick playing on the snare are precisely detected and translated. The ride offers wide tonal range and the ability to subtly mute with just a touch of the bow or bell. Gone are the days of cycling through simple trigger sounds—these pads are dynamic, responding to every touch.
Upgraded Module With Huge Sound Library, Easy Connectivity and Deep Editing
Building on the flagship TD-50, the TD-27 module is a high-tech workhorse. It’s filled with drums that live and breathe like acoustic instruments. It begins with samples from high-end drums, percussion and cymbals—both vintage and modern—in world-class recording studios. Then, Roland applies their Prismatic Sound Modeling technology, making samples behave in complex ways based on how they’re played. The TD-27 is not a library of canned sounds—each kit is a full-bodied instrument with a wide range of adjustment options. Just like the shells themselves, these adjustments are intuitive for any drummer. Swap the head types, adjust the tuning, apply damping, tweak the snare wire tension, even adjust the position of the microphones, all from within the module. Add a full range of studio effects like compressors, reverbs, delays and more, and the TD-27 is a recording studio disguised as an acoustic kit. Diverse connectors and Bluetooth make it easy to export these sounds wherever you need them, or just play along with your favorite tracks straight from your phone.
