Convenient Kit for New V-Drums Owners

Los Angeles, CA, March 21, 2012 — Roland is pleased to announce the DAP-3X V-Drums® Accessory Package, a convenient add-on for V-Drums purchasers. The ready-to-go kit includes a kick pedal, drum throne, and drum sticks, essential items that allow users to get started playing their new V-Drums set right away.

The high-performance kick pedal provided in the DAP-3X features an offset-cam chain drive for smooth action and quick response, as well as a beater angle that’s easily adjustable with a drum key. In addition, the pedal’s footboard has an embossed Roland logo, matching the FD-8 Hi-Hat Controller currently included with most V-Drums sets.

The adjustable drum throne in the DAP-3X features a comfortable vinyl cushion, and is equipped with a sturdy, double-braced tripod for years of reliable use. Rounding out the package is a pair of hickory wood-tip drum sticks sporting the V-Drums logo.

The DAP-3X V-Drums Accessory Package will be available in late spring.
