Roland V-Drums lite: HD-1

Roland’s V-Drums are the most popular electronic drums in the world, but not everyone has the room or budget for a full V-Drums kit. Introducing the new Roland HD-1. It's forged from the same technology as its predecessors, but it's 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 every home, school, studio, etc. — and it's priced for the masses. Most of the HD-1’s components are mounted on one stand for easy setup and transport, and for a clean look. Just take it out of the box and play.

  • Easy set-up and operation

  • Compact and stylish design

  • Great sounds with a variety of kits

Small Price, Big Performance
It might look small, but the HD-1 sounds and performs impressively large. With Roland’s legendary V-Drum know-how at the core, this little kit is a dream for first-timer or casual players as well as for parents, since the volume level can be completely controlled via volume knob and/or headphones.

Play-Along Fun
The HD-1 is equipped with an external input for connecting CD-players, iPods®, and the like. Jam along with your favorite songs, and control the blend of music and your live drumming through headphones or an amplifier.

Borderless Expression
The HD-1 is a great way to enhance musical expression and enjoyment in your home. Used along with other popular instruments such as Roland’s digital pianos, the HD-1 will serve as the nucleus for family fun and musical enrichment.

Roland KC60 Combo Amp

Big Sound That’s Easy on Your Wallet

Roland’s KC-Series Keyboard Amplifiers are known for their exceptional sound quality. That’s because they’re built to handle the wide range of sounds created by today’s synthesizers, samplers and electronic musical instruments. The new KC-60 takes these principles and puts them in a more affordable design, powered by a 40-watt amplifier with a 10-inch speaker and separate tweeter. Now anyone can step up to a KC amp. And once you do, you’ll never look back.

Flexible 3-Channel Design with Subwoofer Output

While the KC-60 is built primarily for keyboards, it’s also at home with a microphone and CD player. Specifically, there are three input channels including an XLR Mic input and Auxiliary input—each with its own adjustable volume. And while 40 watts of power sounds good, you can also add an optional subwoofer from any manufacturer via the KC-60’s Subwoofer output—a first of its kind on a keyboard amp!

Come by YAMS and check out the killer YAMS price - yes, we even beat that certain online retailer, and you can walk in and take it home with you!
