The Roland HD-3 V-Drums® Lite

Roland’s V-Drums are by far the most popular electronic drums in the world, but not everyone has the room or the money for a full V-Drums kit. Enter the new Roland HD-3 V-Drums Lite! This delightfully affordable kit is forged from the same Roland technology as its brethren, but it's much easier to use. It’s also amazingly quiet due to the cushioned tom pads, and newly designed kick beater. The HD-3 kit is also conveniently compact and stylish — ideal for any home, school, studio, etc. — and it's priced for the masses. Many of the HD-3’s components are mounted on one stand for quick setup and transport, and for a cleaner look. Just unbox it and start rockin'!

Think Big
The HD-3 kit might even look a little too compact, but rest-assured the HD-3 sounds and performs impressively large, especially when paired with a drum monitor (see Optional Accessories list below). With Roland’s legendary V-Drum technology at its core, this little darling is a dream come true for beginners or casual players as well as parents, since the volume level can be completely controlled via volume knob and/or headphones.

Play Along With Your Favorite Tunes
The HD-3 comes with an external input to connect CD players, iPods® and other personal media devices. Rock along with your favorite songs, and mix the blend of music and your live drumming through your headphones or a drum amplifier.
