Dolphin Music on Dec 10, 2010
The hour-long Christmas special episode of Channel Five’s The Gadget Show declared Roland’s electronic kit is the perfect Christmas gift for the ‘modern male’!
With the help of Scouting for Girls, the programme’s Pollyanna Woodward and Suzy Perry put an array of high-tech gear to the test, from top-of-the-range sat-navs to laptops and audio systems. After a jam session by the band, the drums won after being shortlisted with various other potential Christmas gifts.
Presenters Otis Deley and Jason Bradbury described Roland’s HD-1 drums as “a much more sophisticated gadget proposition.”
Roland HD-1 V-drum - what’s the biggie?
Roland’s V-drums are already known as the most popular electronic drums in the world. Unfortunately we can’t all afford a V-Drums kit, and that’s where the HD-1 V-Drum comes in. Priced for the masses It’s forged from the same technology as its predecessors, but it’s much much simpler to use. It’s also incredibly quiet thanks to the newly designed kick beater, cushioned tom pads, and snare head.
The HD-1 is also conveniently compact and stylish - perfect for your home, studio or school - most of the components are mounted on one stand for easy setup and transport. With an external input for connected CD-players, iPods and the like, you can learn to play your favourite songs whilst controlling the blend of music and your live drumming through headphones or an amp.
