RMP-12: Rhythm Coach

A Revolution in Marching Percussion

Features

The new RMP-12 Rhythm Coach® brings an exciting new dimension of portable sound and expression. Suited for all drumming applications, the RMP-12 is the world’s first electronic marching percussion instrument to incorporate Roland’s patented multi-layer mesh head technology, allowing drummers to practice longer with less stress and fatigue.

Tailored to the educational percussion field, the RMP-12 offers enhanced playability, expressiveness, and versatility for practice and performance applications.

  • 12-inch mesh pad with rim triggering
  • Newly-designed module with a variety of sounds
  • A reliable Live Mode to focus on your marching performance
  • Built-in Rhythm Coach for skill building
  • Lightweight and portable with battery power
  • Mix input and audio output for personal and professional use
  • Headphone output for quiet practice
  • Easily attaches to standard marching carriers (via optional OP-RMP12) and snare stands

Mesh-Head Comfort
The RMP-12’s patented mesh head provides low acoustic noise, high durability and unsurpassed comfort. Head tension can be adjusted via drum key, just like an acoustic drum, for the perfect stick response. The head is also replaceable, like an acoustic drum.

World of Sound
The RMP-12 offers high-quality marching snares, toms, bass drums, cymbals, and other drums and percussion instruments. It also contains a variety of Latin percussion, as well as electronic sounds. The four memory buttons let you store your favorite sounds and call them up instantly during your performance.

Rhythm Coach Onboard
The Rhythm Coach helps you build speed, stamina and accuracy. Even if you’re not in Rhythm Coach mode, you can practice with the Time Check whenever you start the metronome. The Time Check Score, which grades accuracy, is one of the menus in the Rhythm Coach. Other effective exercises include the Auto Up/Down, which gradually speeds up and slows down the metronome, and the DynaMeter, which shows your stroke dynamics on the screen.

Marching Percussion
Perfect for extended use, the RMP-12 is lightweight and battery-powered. It can be attached to standard marching-drum carriers for wireless transmission, allowing you to freely move around during your performance. For practice, mount the RMP-12 to a concert-snare stand and use the Roland CUBE Street monitor, or simply connect headphones for quiet practice.
