Roland HD-3 V-Drums Lite & DT-1 Drums Tutor
Roland HD-3 V-Drums Lite
The V Drum Lite is created for people who are tight on budget and space. Coming in at roughly 1 meter wide, this would quite happily fit into most bedrooms, lounges, small studios, schools and not take up any excessive room. It is also incredibly quiet thanks to the beater-less kick pedal, cushioned Tom pads and mesh-head snare. It has also had cloth head toms developed for an improved playing feel. Users can now enjoy greater expression by playing rim shots on the snare, triggering edge sounds on the crash/ride, and chocking crash/ride sounds by grabbing the cymbal.
It contains over 20 new drum kits, a backlit LCD display and an enhanced metronome with wider tempo ranges and variable sounds. It is also equipped with an input for connecting any form of external music player so the user can jam along to their favourite tracks. It also has a feature by where the user can blend the two together to make practicing more fun.
The HD-3 V-Drums Lite will be available in February 2012. To register your interest with Dolphin please click HERE.
