The Roland VAD706 (V-Drums Acoustic Design) hybrid drum set blends the look and response of a traditional acoustic kit with the pioneering electronics of the modern V-Drums lineup. Real wood shells with lacquered maple finish plies and Roland's legendary multi-ply mesh heads supply a quiet and custom response at every turn. From the crack of a cranked snare to the wooly give of a classic kick drum, the VAD706 lets you feel, sense, and approach the drums in a whole new light. Across the kit, Roland's slim, rubberized, multi-zone V-Cymbals serve up the expression you need to craft compelling musical ideas for styles ranging from jazz to metal. The VAD706 comes outfitted with Roland's trailblazing TD-50X module and a full-sized digital snare, a ride, and hi-hat pads. Together with its massive 22-inch wood bass drum and fusion-sized 10/12/14-inch tom ensemble, the VAD706 captures subtleties in your performances that would be missed using a traditional stage kit, all while looking the part for conventional club, stadium, studio, and sanctuary use. Kitted up with a robust set of included Roland stands, the V-Drums VAD706 hybrid drum set sports an irresistible look that'll make your performances stand out in fresh new ways.

    All-wood construction

    Nothing looks and plays like wood drums. The Roland VAD706's full-sized wood shells and tuneable mesh heads supply the feel of your favorite acoustic kit, all with a sound output that's easy to tame onstage or in a residential setting.

    Gloss lacquer finish

    The VAD706's bass and tom shells come decked out in a deluxe maple finish ply with a decadent gloss lacquer finish. Together with its polished chrome hardware, the VAD706 creates an irresistible look from both sides of the kit.

    Top and bottom mesh heads

    Roland is legendary for its tunable multi-ply mesh heads. These quiet and remarkably sensitive heads make an appearance on both sides of the VAD706's tom and snare shells to give players an unprecedented level of tactile control. Roland's mesh heads are quite durable to boot, with the ability to stand up to heavy attacks without tearing or requiring constant tuning.

    Meet Roland's flagship V-Drums module

    The VAD706's TD-50X module takes V-Drums tone and expression to new levels. Inside, you'll find 70 premium preset drum kits and 900 instrument sounds that run the gamut from rock, pop, and metal to EDM, world, and experimental styles. Support for all three of Roland's latest digital pads — snare, ride, and hi-hat — makes playing the TD-50X the most lifelike V-Drums experience to date. Hands-on mix faders and per-function knobs and switches provide endless opportunities to drill down and fine-tune your sound with muffling, tuning, and more. Other features eDrummers at Music Experience love in the TD-50X include discrete I/O for pads and sends, 500 user samples for bringing your studio sounds to the stage, 24 minutes of onboard mono record time (12 minutes stereo) for capturing ideas in practice and on the road, and up to 32-channel audio over USB for creating professional drum tracks via a single cable.

    Powerful Prismatic Sound Modeling

    Each onboard kit within the VAD706 is crafted to sound great without tweaks. But for times when you need a custom kit for a particular performance, the TD-50X's Prismatic Sound Modeling has you covered. You have control over each drum shell's tone and tuning and 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 your kick, snare, or toms with onboard FX such as rich reverb and smooth tape-like compression.

    Meet Roland's flagship V-Drums module

    The VAD706's PureAcoustic Ambience technology creates an immersive soundstage that really makes you feel like you're there, even with headphones on. PureAcoustic tech lets you dive deep into sound tweaking, too — adjust virtual microphone positions like a real recording studio, then balance each part of the kit with outboard-style FX processors.

    PD-140DS: 8-sensor digital snare plays like the real thing

    The heart of any modern drum kit, acoustic or electronic, is the snare drum. So it's only fitting that a kit as advanced as the VAD706 would include a snare that's equally sophisticated: the 14-inch Roland PD-140DS. Eight sensors across the head and rim accurately translate your performance to your V-Drums module. This means fat backbeats, cutting rimshots, delicate ghost notes and brush sweeps, and natural cross-sticks that connect every time. And thanks to its full 14-inch diameter, the Roland PD-140DS transitions seamlessly between your acoustic kit and back. Particular about your tuning? So are players at Music Experience. Fortunately, the PD-140DS's 8-lug design and 3-ply mesh head make it easy to dial in whatever level of tightness or sponginess you desire.

    CY-18DR: Roland's most convincing V-Cymbal yet

    The Roland CY-18DR invites players to bring their acoustic touch back to the eKit. This 18-inch V-Cymbal sways and plays just like a real cymbal. Multiple sensors across the playing surface eliminate the feeling of zones, as distinct edge, bow, and bell tones melt into one another seamlessly. And the Roland CY-18DR's multi-touch technology not only lets you choke crash attacks with your hand, but also soften cymbal attacks with a finger's touch. If you've had trouble getting the full emotion of a performance to translate through the use of traditional eCymbals, you're in for a sweet surprise with the VAD706's included CY-18DR V-Cymbal digital ride cymbal.

    VH-14D: the digital hi-hat you've been waiting for

    The VH-14D V-Hi-hat represents the latest in Roland's illustrious line of V-Drums digital drum and cymbal triggers. With independent bow/edge sensors and advanced play support, this digital hi-hat trigger gives you the tools you need to create dimension and atmosphere in your tracks just like a "real" set of hi-hats. Mount the VH-14D to your favorite hi-hat stand using the included accessories, and you're fully supported for pumping time, splashing accents, and creating dizzying variations of closed eighths, half-open flourishes, and bombastic full-bore metal washes. Whatever your style, the VH-14D's speed and expression are second to none. Even super-quick EDM hat rolls don't get lost when you're grooving on the VH-14D's soft, quiet 14-inch rubber playing surface. What really impresses us at Music Experience is the VH-14D's intuitive approach to sound creation. Footing, sticking, and even choking on these hats feels much like the real thing. What's more, the VH-14D's sleek, low-profile design looks natural in both hybrid and fully electronic environments. So whether you're incorporating the VAD706 Set into your stage or studio setup, its VH-14D V-Hi-hat provides the look, feel, and performance you've been waiting for.

    V-Drums Acoustic Design VAD706 Performance

    The VAD706 takes electronic drumming where it’s never gone before, combining Roland’s flagship V-Drums technologies with the hand-crafted detail of premium-grade acoustic drums. Experience the world-class sounds and striking finishes of the VAD706 in this live performance.

    Immerse Yourself in a Premium Drumming Experience

    The VAD706 not only sounds and feels great—it’s also beautiful 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. Choose from Gloss Natural, Gloss Cherry, or Gloss Ebony finishes, which offer an artisan look with stained maple veneers and transparent gloss coats. Or make a statement with the deep Pearl White finish and its bold, attention-grabbing vibe.

    Prismatic Sound Modeling: Feel the Difference

    The Prismatic Sound Modeling 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 behavior modeling techniques refined over more than two decades. Inspired by a prism—which refracts a single ray of light into every color in the spectrum—our revolutionary approach produces an unlimited array of sonic colors 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.

    Digital Snare, Ride, and Hi-Hat

    Our groundbreaking digital pad technology is a major leap forward in electronic drumming, putting unmatched depth and dimension under your sticks. Precision multi-sensors in the snare, ride, and 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. And the VH-14D takes electronic hi-hat playing to new heights, offering touch sensitivity, tonal variation, and open/closed resolution never before available—until now.

    The Natural Feel of Acoustic Drums

    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 customizable 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.

    Instant Gratification

    Imagine acoustic drums that are set up, mic’d, processed, and mixed in a world-class studio—that’s what you get when you call up a preset on the TD-50X module. Developed with top drummers and recording engineers, these inspiring kits let you take on any style at the touch of a button, from traditional jazz to full-throttle metal.

    Build Your Signature Drum Kit

    Going beyond the presets, the TD-50X allows you to customize 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.

    Craft Your Sound with Studio Precision

    After you’ve tweaked the details of your kit, make it fully come alive with the TD-50X’s impressive array of studio tools. Adjust mic settings for various kit elements, then dial in sounds with equalizers, compressors, and other processing. And for spaciousness and color, tap into the wide selection of high-quality reverbs and multi-effects.

    Powerful Connectivity for Stage and Studio

    With a rear panel loaded with connectivity, the TD-50X module is ready to take on the practical needs of any playing situation. 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.

    Expand Your Options

    Using the TD-50X module’s 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.

    Your Personal Practice Partner

    The TD-50X module is filled with features to develop your technique and make practice sessions fun and rewarding. Improve your timing with the built-in metronome and Coach mode exercises, or simply jam along with music played from a smartphone or laptop. The onboard recorder lets you capture and review your playing at any time, complete with the ability to export audio (with or without backing music) for sharing with others. And you can extend your practice even further with Melodics™, a free desktop app that comes with 40 lessons, plus unlimited access via a subscription when you’re ready for more.
