Purposefully compact while maintaining the distinctive V-Drum Acoustic Design aesthetic, the VAD307 V-Drums Acoustic Design Electronic Drum Kit from Roland is a powerful e-drum kit with a space-saving footprint, making it ideal for home use and tight stages. With double-braced chrome stands, tom mounts, and cymbal boom arms, the VAD307 sports a complete drum kit layout with a classic acoustic look and a natural-feeling response that will be instantly familiar to nearly any drummer.

The VAD307 kit features cutdown shallow shells, which reduce weight and space while remaining easy to play from any position. The updated Bluetooth-compatible TD-17 sound module provides acoustic tone and playability in spades, plus more preset kits, expanded effects, and Roland Cloud support. The kit also comes with newly developed thin crash and ride cymbals with a more natural swinging motion, plus high-grade stands for reliable performance.



Powerful Sound and Realistic Expression

At the heart of the VAD307 is the TD-17 sound module. It features a vast collection of vintage and modern drums, cymbals, and percussion, all sampled in ultrahigh audio detail with every possible velocity and head strike captured. Roland’s unique Prismatic Sound Modeling is married with these samples to deliver complex, true-to-life tonal range and smooth dynamic transitions between hits. The result is an experience that doesn’t just sound faithfully acoustic, it behaves acoustically too.

TD-17 Sound Module: Updated and Enhanced

With the latest update, the TD-17 module is more powerful than ever. Choose from 70 versatile preset kits developed by pro drummers, including 10 all-new kits and 26 preloaded samples that you can use in your custom kits. Reverb and Kit Comp effects have also been added, along with 11 more MFX types for shaping drum tones. And with integrated support for Roland Cloud content, you can expand your playing experience with a growing selection of sounds, samples, and custom kits from top V-Drums artists.

Larger Pads and a Wider Playing Spread

Acoustic drums are usually bigger than electronic drum pads. The size of each drum adds to the overall experience, not just visually but also in stick feel and physical layout. The VAD307 features a 12-inch snare and floor tom, two 10-inch rack toms, and an 18-inch kick to create a naturally wide spread for maximum playing comfort. The shells are made of wood too, enhancing the authentic acoustic feel under the sticks and beater.

Slimmer, Low-Profile Cymbals

The VAD307 features cymbals with much thinner profiles than previous generations, offering more natural movement and improved stick feel. And each cymbal can be choked simply by grabbing the edge, just like a real acoustic cymbal. The 14-inch CY-14R-T ride cymbal even includes three-way triggering with independent sounds for the edge, bow, and bell.

Small Size, Big Sound

The Natural Feel of Acoustic Drums
Roland’s legendary multi-ply, tension-adjustable mesh heads contribute significantly to the authentic playing feel, giving you 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.

Shallow Shells, Deeper Performance

While the shallow-depth tom and kick shells in the VAD307 kit save space and weight, they don’t scrimp on performance. Each drum features custom sensors engineered to provide natural response and premium feel in an amazingly compact size.

Create (and Craft) Your Signature Drum Kit

The VAD307’s preset kits come ready to play, but it’s easy to dive deeper and build your ultimate drum setup. Think of the module as a huge warehouse of drums and cymbals from different eras, which you can mix and match in any combination. After that, swap the heads, change the tuning, add muffling, and even change the virtual space in which you’re playing. Take things even further by loading your own samples and combining them with onboard instruments, crafting personalized kits that no other drummer can claim.

Double-Braced Chrome Drum Stands

The way acoustic drums and cymbals are mounted not only projects a classic image, it also influences the playing feel. The tom pads mount on the same stands used for acoustic toms, so they feel just right when they’re hit. And every stand is double braced for rock-solid stability and easily adjusted to suit your preferred layout.
