Roland VAD706 V-Drums Acoustic Design Kit, Gloss Ebony Overview
Roland VAD706 V-Drums Acoustic Design Kit
Overview By GAK
The VAD706 is the flagship V-Drums kit in the VAD Series. VAD706 takes V-Drums somewhere it’s never been before, combining the most powerful V-Drums technologies and the immense detail from handmade Acoustic Drums.
At first look, the VAD706 has the same aesthetic as an Acoustic Drum kit, with full-size shells, two-piece hi-hat pads, large cymbals and double-braced chrome stands. The VAD706 is the perfect option for the drummer that wants to make no compromises when choosing their Electronic Drum Kit.
The VAD706 is a 9 Piece drum kit, featuring the following pad configuration:
- x1 Roland PDA100 V-Drums Acoustic Design Tom Pad, 10in
- x1 Roland PDA120 V-Drums Acoustic Design Tom Pad, 12in
- x1 Roland PDA140F V-Drums Acoustic Design Floor Tom Pad, 14in,
- x1 Roland KDA-222 V-Drums Acoustic Design Kick Drum Pad, 22in
Each of the wooden shells are full-size Acoustic Drums, have chrome-plated fittings and come with Roland’s unique mesh heads on the top and bottom. The shell pack on the VAD706 is available in four different finishes; Gloss Natural, Gloss Cherry, Gloss Ebony finishes and Pearl White. The Gloss finishes offer an artisan look with stained maple veneers and transparent gloss coats, whilst Pearl White is bold, attention-grabbing and the perfect vibe for drummers that want to make a statement.
The CY-16R-T is Roland’s largest and thinnest analogue pad in their range, allowing realistic “swing” and “flex” under the stick, just like an acoustic Cymbal.
- Roland PD-140DS V-Pad Digital Snare
- Roland CY-18DR V-Cymbal Digital Ride, 18in
- Roland VH-14D Digital V-Hi-Hat, 14in
Roland Digital Pads are a groundbreaking revelation to the Electronic Drum market. Traditionally Electronic Drum Pads use an analogue jack cable, whereas the PD-140S, CY-18DR and VH-14D connect to the TD-50X Module via a USB connection.
USB is able to transmit 10x the information as an analogue jack cable, meaning speed, velocity, position and duration are all calculated with far higher accuracy. Each Digital Pad performs far more expressively than the jack cable pad equivalent, making for a more realistic playing experience. USB has also unlocked the ability for Electrostatic sensors to be implemented in each digital pad, meaning you can choke/mute the cymbal with just a fingertip and play cross-stick without adjusting any settings.
As well as pioneering pad technology, the VAD706 has been designed to deal with the most rigorous of tour schedules, demanding studio sessions and most flamboyant playing techniques. The VAD706 features heavy-duty all chrome-plated hardware and fittings, including the Roland DTS-30S Drum Stand Set in the box. The DTS-30S is made up of two DCS-30 combination stands, one DBS-30 cymbal boom stand and one PDS-20 module/pad stand.
Please note, the VAD706 does not come with a snare stand, hi-hat stand, kick pedal or drum throne.
