Roland VAD504 V-Drums Acoustic Design Electronic Drum Kit with Dynamic TD-27 Sound Module

When you need the glamour and presence of a full acoustic drum set on stage but with the convenience and control of electronic drums, the Roland VAD504 V-Drums Acoustic Design Streamlined Kit is the perfect solution. This premium one-up, one-down kit features wood shells with full depth and diameter, covered with attractive wraps, and mounted on double-braced chrome stands. Roland's advanced digital sensor technology and dynamic TD-27 drum module provide the sound and response to match, with every stroke, ghost note, roll, and swell expressed in incredible detail. Building on the previous VAD503 model, the VAD504 adds a digital hi-hat for even greater expression, plus heavy-duty cymbal stands inherited from the flagship VAD706. The TD-27 module has also been updated, bringing you new kits and samples, expanded processing options, and more.

Immersive Acoustic Drumming Experience

With the impressive looks, familiar layout, and inspiring playability of a high-end acoustic kit, the VAD504 makes any drummer feel instantly at home. There's a 14-inch stainless steel snare, 10-inch rack tom, 14-inch floor tom, and 20-inch kick constructed with full-depth wood shells, adding to the authenticity and providing a genuine acoustic feel under the sticks and beater. A full complement of cymbals includes a 14-inch V-Hi-Hat, a 14-inch crash (with a thin profile and textured finish), and an 18-inch ride for superior playability and natural appearance on stage.

Digital Snare, Ride, and Hi-Hat

Roland's 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 harmony with the TD-27 module to capture every nuance with incredible definition and detail. Lightning-fast detection lets you 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 the electronic hi-hat to new heights with unparalleled touch sensitivity, tonal variation, and open/closed resolution.

Natural Feel of Acoustic Drums

Roland's legendary multi-ply, tension-adjustable mesh heads contribute significantly to the authentic playing feel, giving you a stick rebound that's customizable for your playing style. And when you bury the beater into the specially designed kick drum, you physically move air inside the shell, creating air pressure and resistance that feels remarkably like playing an acoustic kick.

Prismatic Sound Modeling

Derived from the flagship TD-50X, the TD-27 sound module is filled with drums that live and breathe like acoustic instruments. It is started by sampling the finest drums, percussion, and cymbals, both vintage and modern, in world-class recording studios. Roland's unique Prismatic Sound Modeling is then applied to the samples, bringing them alive with proprietary behavior modeling refined over two decades. Every time you strike a drum or cymbal, you're not simply triggering a canned sound you're playing a full-bodied instrument that responds like its acoustic counterpart in every way, putting unprecedented sonic range at your command.

TD-27 Module

The updated TD-27 module features 75 preset kits, including 10 all-new kits and newly enhanced versions of the three most popular kits from the original release. New pre-loaded samples are available for combining with preset kits or your own custom setups. Layering features have been expanded, while parallel compression options and transient shaping enhancements provide even greater sound control. The module interface has also been improved for faster sound creation.

Create your Signature Drum Kit

With acoustic drums, you make the sound your own by swapping head types, adjusting the tuning, applying damping, tweaking the snare wire tension, changing the kick beater, and more. This is all possible with the TD-27 module, allowing you to craft customized kits for any situation.

Double-Braced Chrome Drum Stands

The VAD504 comes equipped with the same heavy-duty stands as the flagship VAD706, delivering high-end performance and a genuine acoustic feel. The tom pads mount just like acoustic toms—so they feel just right when they're hit. Newly developed thin V-Cymbals attach with a special pivot mount for a natural acoustic swing and stick feel. And every stand is double-braced for rock-solid stability and easily adjusted to suit your preferred layout.

Roland 20-Inch Trigger Bass Drum

The Roland 20-Inch Trigger Bass Drum is a premium 20-Inch kick drum with a full-depth wood shell for the most immersive V-Drums Acoustic Design experience. It features an innovative pad sensor built into a head that mounts using the same method as an acoustic drum head. Every time the beater strikes, the air pressure inside the shell is precisely vented for a pedal feel that's remarkably similar to an acoustic kick drum.

Roland V-Drums VAD504 Pad Set Hardware

The Roland DTS311 set includes one DCS-30 tom/cymbal combination stand and one DBS-30 cymbal boom stand in a single package. Double-braced legs and large-diameter tubing provide maximum stability and flawless chrome plating delivers a premium look.
