Real Acoustic Tom Feel and Improved Performance
The EMAATS system features Randall May International’s MAATS (Magnetic Air Adjustment Tom Suspension) technology, which allows electronic tom pads to respond and feel like acoustic toms that are mounted on traditional resonance-enhancing suspension mounts, but with even more adjustability. Each mount features an innovative magnetic tensioning system that can be adjusted by the player to suit their own tom feel preferences, from free-floating to rigid.
An additional benefit of this unique mount is its isolation properties. Mechanical vibration transmission through the stand is greatly reduced, mitigating any possible double and/or false triggering between pads.
You can easily customize the EMAATS adjustment with the turn of a drum key. It’s also possible to tweak the angle of each pad by adjusting the mounting post with a box-end wrench (7/16-inch/11 mm).
V-Drums Stand Compatibility
The EMAATS mounting system is compatible with the following Roland V-Drums stands:
- MDS-50KV (included with the TD-50KV V-Drums set)
- MDS-50K (included with the TD-50K V-Drums set)
- MDS-25 (included with the legacy TD-30KV, TD-30K, and TD-20SX V-Drums sets)
With any of these stands, simply replace the existing tom mounts and instantly feel the difference.
