Roland V-Drums just won a Grammy! Well, maybe not exactly a Grammy, but in our industry (musical instrument industry), a MIPA award is just as prestigious. MIPA stands for Musikmesse International Press Award, and it’s determined by more than 100 members of the music industry press from all over the world.  They get together each year and vote for the best musical instruments and audio equipment in more than 40 categories. This year, Roland’s TD-4KP V-Drums Portable drum kit was honored with a MIPA award for the electronic drums category.

The TD-4KP V-Drums Portable is one of Roland’s newest and most unique members of the V-Drums family. Unlike any drum kit, acoustic or portable, the TD-4KP features a small footprint and an innovative folding design for fast set-up/breakdown and easy transport/storage, and it is perfectly suited for mobile drumming and small spaces. When you want to play, simply unfold everything and adjust the pad positions, and then you’re ready to roll! With it’s custom-design case, shoulder strap and detachable pouches, drummers can now break down just as fast as the guitar and bass players in the band. Its powerful TD-4 sound module is equipped with a wide range of expressive, editable sounds and essential practice features, and its integrated pads provide a very natural playability.

“Even though this drum set is pint-sized compared to some of the others in the category, it doesn’t mean it can’t pack a punch,” said Roland Corporation U.S. Vice President of Sales Brian Alli. “It’s spectacular to be able to offer a kit that can be used pretty much anywhere and still deliver premium sounds and playability.”
