Roland VAD-103 V-Drum Electronic Drum Kit

The Roland VAD-103 electronic drum kit is the entry point to the V-Drums Acoustic Design series. An affordable all digital drum kit that captures the vibe and feel of a traditional acoustic set. Unleash your creativity with a streamlined tom layout and a full array of cymbals. For a classic acoustic kit vibe mount the VAD-103 large drum and cymbal pads to regular stands. 

The TD-07 model offers authentic kits for every musical style with deep editing functions for creating your signature sound. Improve you technique with the in-built Coach or connect via Bluetooth for drumming along to your favourite bands. Music can be streamed from your phone, tablet or computer. 

The latest generation of V-Drums

Roland have pioneered electronic drum kits as we know them today. The V-Drums series lead the way when it comes to technology and innovation. The Roland VAD-103 upholds the tradition with unbeatable durability, sensor precision and behavioural modelling technology. Experience the acclaimed V-Drums acoustic design series which offer real wood shells and acoustic drum presence.

Bigger pads, better feel, smaller footprint

The VAD-103 is the perfect balance of playability, pad size, and a compact footprint. The shallow beater is purposefully built to provide a satisfying ‘push’ to the 18-inch kick. While the 12-inch snare and floor tom pads are sizeable enough for an authentic kit feel, but compact enough to the space conscious drummer. To complete your acoustic vibe, mount the VH-10 hi-hat cymbals to an acoustic stand. The 13-inch ride cymbal feels very satisfying to play without compromising on your valuable space.

Drum tones for every genre, song, and band

The TD-07 sound module offers 25 ready-to-play drum kits recorded by professional drummers in high end studios. Then, brought to life through Roland’s advanced behaviour modelling technology. So whether you’re looking for electronic, acoustic or percussion sounds, the VAD-103 offers deep customisation options at your finger tips.

Roland VAD-103 – The quietest electronic drums around

Additionally, you can use headphones and practice without disturbing those around you. The VAD-103’s pads are truely quiet as they reduce stick noise and vibration.

Unbeatable feel from Roland’s revolutionary mesh heads

Roland’s mesh pads use two layers of advanced custom material. With adjustable tension for accurate rebounds they are also very durable. Roland’s double-ply meshes provide lower noise and are becoming the standard for electronic drums.
