Roland Hybrid Drums

Your sound, no limits!

Hybrid drums: take the raw power of acoustic drums and add the potential of electronics. Start playing a drum kit that gives you the best of both worlds.

A hybrid drumkit consists of three elements. The sound module is the heart of a hybrid drum kit. It integrates digital sounds and audio files into your drum kit. The sound module is connected to drum triggers and drum pads. Drum triggers are attached to the rim of a acoustic drum. The drum pads are situated next to your acoustic drums. While playing, the triggers and pads send audio signals to the sound module.

Don't forget to add a pair of drum monitors to your shopping cart. These monitors allow you to hear the added sounds instantly!

three advantages of hybrid drums
  • Customize your sound. Enhance your sound by triggering an electronic sound and mixing it with your acoustic sounds for greater dynamic range, increased clarity and performance. 
  • Easy to use. The TM-2 sound module with acoustic triggers and pads is easily positioned next to your drum kit. It's very simple to use the electronic devices and to get more out of your acoustic drum kit.
  • Amazing performance. Whether it's just one sound effect you need, an entire backing track, or switching musical styles during the set, Roland Hybrid allows you to adapt your sound track by track. The audience will be impressed!
