Roland Introduces PM-100 and PM-200 Personal Monitors
Powerful new amplification systems for Roland’s V-Drums
Los Angeles, CA, January 11, 2018 — Roland introduces the PM-100 and PM-200 Personal Monitors, two new amplification systems designed for use with V-Drums electronic percussion products. These compact all-in-one monitors are specially optimized for the famously expressive sound and response of Roland’s V-Drums, providing the ultimate full-range monitoring experience for playing and practicing at home with any V-Drums set.
The PM-100 features 80 watts of power, a custom 10-inch speaker, and a tweeter, while the PM-200 features 180 watts of power, a custom 12-inch speaker, and a horn tweeter. Each monitor is designed to be placed on the floor, and the front face is angled to provide ideal sound coverage for a seated player. A full-width bar handle on top offers a convenient way to carry the monitor and adjust its floor position.
Each monitor includes an integrated mixer with a dedicated V-Drums input, plus 1/4-inch and 1/8-inch line inputs for connecting additional devices like electronic percussion pads, smartphones, and music players. Independent volume controls are provided for the V-Drums and line input sections, and there’s a two-band equalizer for shaping the overall sound.
The PM-200 is also equipped with two XLR direct outputs that allow the user to pass sounds to a mixer or recording device, providing additional flexibility for using the monitor in stage, rehearsal, and studio applications. Via a panel switch, the outputs can be configured for either dual mono or stereo operation.
