Updating the worlds most powerful and successful electronic drum lineup, Roland is introducing two new sets of V-drums electronic drum systems: the new flagship V-Session Set with V-Cymbals, and the new V-Concert Set, an updated version of the popular V-Pro. Like their predecessors, these new V-drums electronic drum sets employ ultra-sensitive mesh-head triggering, COSM modeling-based drum editing capabilities, and amazing sound quality to yield unrivaled expression and extreme flexibility for a range of live and studio applications.
As the most powerful and complete V-drums set to date, the V-Session Set is based upon the TD-10 Percussion Sound Module and includes the TDW-1 Wave and System Expansion Board with V-Cymbal Control, giving drummers over 1,000 unique sounds with enhanced dynamics and sensitivitynot to mention the powerful COSM drum modeling, onboard effects and icon-based user interface which have made the V-drums so popular.
Included with the V-Session Set are Rolands new V-Cymbals: Crash (2), Ride (1) and Hi-Hat (1). These are the worlds first electronic cymbals which can accurately emulate the inertia of real acoustic cymbals, "swinging" and responding to cymbal "chokes" as a drummer plays. And the increased playing realism is mirrored in the sound: Both the Hi-Hat and the Crash offer dual-triggering and increased dynamics, while the Ride cymbal actually offers three-way-triggering (edge/bow/bell) and Positional Sensing capabilities on the bow of the cymbaljust like an acoustic ride.*
Drummers will also immediately notice the V-Sessions sleek new metallic red stand, red drum shells, and the inclusion of a red KD-120 V-Kick pad. The stand also features Rolands innovative and sleek new hardware fittings. These new fittings are made of a revolutionary new material which grips the stand better while offering a more intuitive method of securing the fittings.
The new V-Concert Set, on the other hand, is an updated version of the immensely popular V-Pro Set, introduced four years ago. The V-Concert Sets combination of a COSM modeling-based TD-10 Percussion Sound Module, onboard effects, an icon-based user interface and innovative mesh-head V-pads has proven an irresistible package for professionals and serious drummers at all levels. The V-Concert Set takes this package to the next level with updated look based on a purple stand and metallic purple V-pads, plus the stronger, more convenient drum hardware found on the V-Session.
