A "Hands On" Approach to Electronic Percussion

The HPD-15 HandSonic® is an electronic percussion multi-pad designed to be played by hand or finger. Using V-Drums® triggering technology, this futuristic instrument allows hand percussionists to play up to 15 sounds naturally without using sticks.

  • Electronic hand percussion multi-pad with triggering based on V-drums technology
  • 10" rubber pad with 15 parts for triggering up to 15 sounds simultaneously
  • Built-in pressure sensor allows for realistic muting and pitch control of sounds
  • Main pad supports Positional Sensing for creating timbre changes depending on area of pad hit
  • 600 onboard percussion sounds from Latin countries, Asia, India, and more
  • Onboard effects include dedicated reverb and multi-effects processors
  • Powerful realtime controllers including a D Beam, dual ribbon controllers, and three control knobs
  • Built-in sequencer with Preset patterns and metronome function
  • MIDI In/Out for use with sequencers or as a dynamic MIDI controller
  • Dual-trigger input and hi-hat control jack

A dynamic pad with V-Drums technology

Divided into 15 parts, the HPD-15's ultra-sensitive 10-inch rubber pad can be used to trigger up to 15 different sounds using techniques from hard conga slaps to the light finger touch needed for tabla performances. And because the main pad supports positional sensing, you can create timbre changes just by striking different areas of the pad.

Loaded with high-quality sounds

In creating the HPD-15's sound set, Roland traveled the globe—from Latin America to southeast Asia, China, India, the Middle East and Africa. There are 600 sounds total, including a fine collection of acoustic percussion sounds, electronic drums and sound effects. And unlike acoustic instruments, you don't have to worry about tuning, humidity and temperature.

Expressive realtime control

The HPD-15's knobs can be used for controlling pitch, timbre and multi-effects, while dual ribbon controllers create realistic conga slides and make triggering guiro sounds more natural. You can even create rolls by pushing harder on the pads. The D Beam, on the other hand, uses an infrared light beam for adjusting pitch, filter cutoff and triggering sounds like a gong or a bell tone. An optional expression pedal may also be used.

Handy performance features

Perfect for practice or composition, the HPD-15's 4-part pattern sequencer provides 99 Preset and User patterns. And with MIDI In and Out, you can use the HandSonic as a sound module or as the ultimate controller for playing into your sequencer. Live performers will appreciate the ability to add an optional hi-hat controller and kick trigger, as well as the HPD-15's 1/4-inch Line input for blending in external sounds.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
