Roland VAD503 V-Drums Acoustic Design Drum Kit

When you need the glamour and presence of a full acoustic drum set on stage—but with the convenience and control of electronic drums, the VAD503 is the perfect solution. This premium ‘one-up, one-down' kit features wooden shells with full depth and diameter, exquisitely finished and mounted on double-braced chrome stands for a look that will have the audience convinced you’re playing acoustic drums. Roland’s advanced digital sensor technology and dynamic TD-27 drum module provide the sound and response to match, making sure every stroke, ghost note, roll, and swell is fully expressed in incredible detail. Roland’s legendary multi-ply, tension-adjustable mesh heads contribute significantly to the authentic playing feel, giving you a stick rebound that’s customizable for your individual playing style. And when you bury the beater into the specially designed kick drum, you physically move air inside the shell, creating air pressure and resistance that feels remarkably like playing an acoustic kick.


  • Four-piece V-Drums Acoustic Design kit with full-size wood shells and double-braced chrome stands
  • TD-27 sound module with advanced Prismatic Sound Modeling derived from the flagship TD-50
  • 14-Inch PD-140DS digital snare and 18" CY-18DR digital ride cymbal with high-resolution, multi-sensor triggering for unparalleled dynamics and accurate positional detection. 
  • 10-Inch PDA100-MS rack tom, 14-Inch PDA140F-MS floor tom, and 20-Inch KD-200-MS kick with custom chrome hardware and Midnight Sparkle wraps
  • Additional cymbal pads include 12-Inch VH-10 V-Hi-Hat and 14-Inch CY-14C-T crash
  • Drum in inspiring sound spaces with newly developed PureAcoustic Ambience Technology
  • Hands-on interface for quick-and-easy selecting and personalizing drum sounds
  • Import your own WAV samples via an SD card
  • Stereo mix output and two assignable outputs for sending individual drum sounds to a PA mixer
  • Integrated 28-channel USB audio interface for professional computer music production
  • Three auxiliary trigger inputs for easy kit expansion
  • Onboard Bluetooth for drumming with music from a smartphone or laptop
  • Built-in practice functions for developing drumming skills


With the impressive looks, familiar layout, and inspiring playability of a high-end acoustic kit, the VAD503 makes any drummer feel instantly at home. There’s a 14-Inch stainless steel snare, plus a 10-Inch rack tom, a 14-Inch floor tom, and a 20-Inch kick constructed with full-depth wood shells, adding to the authenticity and providing a genuine acoustic feel under the stick and beater. A full complement of cymbals includes a 12-Inch V-Hi-Hat, 14-Inch crash (with a thin profile and textured finish), and an 18-Inch ride for superior playability and natural appearance on stage. Roland’s cutting-edge digital pad technology brings even deeper realism to the V-Drums experience. The digital snare and ride pads connect to the TD-27 module via USB cables, working together with the sound engine to deliver the most natural expression, allowing your drumming skills to be heard in incredible detail. Multiple sensors and lightning-fast processing provide an amazing response, enabling you to play genuine techniques in the most natural way. Ghost notes, rim shots, and cross stick playing on the snare are precisely detected and translated, while the ride offers a wide tonal range and the ability to subtly mute with just a touch of the bow or bell.
