V-Drums Acoustic Design expands the V-Drums experience by blending the distinctive aesthetic of acoustic drums with Roland’s leading digital drum technology. Every component realizes the authentic crafted appearance of high-quality acoustic drums, with full-diameter wood shells, deluxe shell wraps, and heavy-duty chrome hardware designed by Roland.
Crafted with a shallow-depth wood shell, the 18” KD-180L-BK kick drum delivers V-Drums Acoustic Design looks and playability in a compact size. 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, air pressure inside the shell is precisely vented for a pedal feel that’s remarkably similar to an acoustic kick drum. And thanks to Roland’s advanced triggering and sensor technology, every stroke is accurately detected for perfect digital sound reproduction.
