Their production of mesh heads for electronic drumsets was of the first of it’s kind and remains the most impressive of all the electronic drumsets on the market. With a feel and sensitivity closely resembling acoustic drumsets, the mesh heads provide the drummer with a drumming experience that is second to none.

Even the cymbal pads and electronic hi-hats are something to behold. Roland electronic drumsets not only feel great to play but are also responsive to a variety of playing types. Velocity and placement of a hit effects the sound output to accurately reflect the drummers intention. Their electronic drums are also MIDI capable which allow the drums to be programmed to sound like anything you can find and can be controlled by other midi devices. Roland electronic drums can also use the MIDI feature to control other midi devices.

While their V-Drums and mesh heads series are typically more expensive as they are geared towards the professional drummer, Roland also produces cloth and rubber drum pads that allow beginner drummers to get into electronic drumsets at a fraction of the price of their high end electronic drumsets.

There are electronic drum options from Roland geared towards beginner drumming, intermediate drumming and professional drumming.
