Tuned for your V-Drums the Roland PM-30 uses DSP technology to dial in every tone it produces, from the low frequency kick all the way up to your hi-hats crisps highs.

The Roland Story

"Roland" was a medieval European hero, best known for defending the frontier of Francia against the Bretons...Roland (the company) wanted to align themselves with this same heroic legacy and so named themselves after the legend. Or, if you ask them, "the two syllables are pleasant to the ear and could be pronounced in the same way in any language in the world." Either way, Roland has been an unstoppable force since 1972, when they first committed to "experimentation for creating stimulative sounds." Since then, they have continued to be driven by their pursuit of "sounds that are comfortable to the human ear." They have eventually found the material for creating "good and expressive sounds" in the form of silicon chips. By leveraging this state-of-the-art technology that has been enabled through modern science, Roland has been able to establish a unique position in the world of electronic musical instruments. Roland has introduced a broad range of technological innovations in the area of computers and semiconductors, and have delivered many revolutionary produces ahead of the rest of the world. And, by doing so, has contributed to creating an environment where everyone is able to casually enjoy music.

Roland celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2002, and has remained true to its commitment to constantly "create sounds that move" as a dedicated manufacturer of electronic musical instruments, which are now beginning to expand into the huge multimedia market. Moving forward, they will continue to actively engage in technological development as part of its efforts to expand possibilities for electronic musical instruments. By creating the best instruments available, They intend to expand the joy of creating around the world, and become a company with which people can feel affinity.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Roland products.

Product Description

Advanced Amplification for V-Drums

Roland's V-Drums, the world's leading electronic drum kits, deserve nothing less than superior amplification. Introducing the Roland PM-30, a top-of-the-line 2.1-channel advanced speaker system. With 200 watts of Class-D power, a high-performance 12" woofer with tweeter, a pair of 4" satellite speakers, and a proprietary DSP engine, the PM-30 delivers powerful, clear, full-range sound in a package that's cleanly designed and comfortable to transport.

Features:

- 2.1-channel system optimized for V-Drums
- 200W (100W + 50W x 2) power, Class-D amplification
- Carefully tuned for V-Drums via embedded DSP technology
- Subwoofer and Full Range modes for application-specific monitoring performance
- Stereo 3-channel mixer, with versatile input / output options
- 3-band EQ
- Satellite speakers can be mounted on PM-30 or V-Drum rack system
- Casters and side-panel handles for convenient transportation

Roland PM30: Full-Range Sound

With its 2 satellite speakers and matching 12 in. woofer enclosure with tweeter, the Roland PM-30 delivers a clear, full-frequency sound. The selectable Full-Range and Subwoofer modes, with accompanying value dial, let you customize the amp's low-frequency performance, while the built-in 3-band EQ lets you fine-tune the tone from high to low.

Roland PM-30: Quad Power Pack

Four Class-D power amplifiers are built into the PM-30 system -- 100W, 50W, and 50W -- for a total of 200 watts of high-performance impact. It's plenty of power for rehearsals and small- to medium-size venues. Line outputs are provided for tapping into larger systems when needed.

The Roland PM-30 Great for V-Drums

Roland V-Drum owners will appreciate the PM-30's special V-Drum input, which accepts a single stereo TRS feed from the V-Drums headphone output. But that's only part of the compatibility story. Roland's engineers carefully optimized the PM-30 for use with V-Drum kits via recently created DSP.

Roland PM-30: I/O Options

The Roland PM-30 provides a flexible input path with 3 input channels (both 1/4" and RCA input types are offered) and 2 sets of outputs (1/4" line outputs (stereo) are provided, plus an additional pair of outputs for the satellite speakers).

Roland PM-30: Transport & Setup

A solid crossbar spans the top of the PM-30's base unit for convenient carrying; 2 side handles are provided as well. The 2 satellite speakers can be clamped onto the crossbar or mounted onto a drum rack (as pictured).
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (28 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Great buy if you'd like to have more control over your monitor mix!"
Sound: I've had the PM-30 for about a year now. All in all I think it was a great buy. My main use is to have some control over my monitor. Overall sound is great for small or large venues. A little weak out doors. Feature: I tried to use the satellite speakers but they are not loud enough to hear if you're playing an acoustic kit. They might work great for an electronic set but are of no use to me, (unless you count the fact I use them on my home theater system). I stopped using them & now primarily use the headphone jack for my Westone in ear monitors. I would highly recommend that if you can get a good monitor mix, to use headphones or in-ears. Better for stage volume anyway. Ease of Use: I like the 3 different inputs, (one with RCA). I use it with a Roland SPD-20 with four external drum pads. I use 1 channel for the SPD-20, one for a monitor return & the 3rd for my computer, (for practice) and sometimes a click track. It has a real deep punch & low end. Put your drum effects in one channel & your music player in another, and with or without in-ears, mix it to sound really good. EQ works great! Quality: It's held together a year with moderate use. I would suggest a cover for it while transporting. Wheels are cheap but are still turning and the knobs on the amp are a little cheap, but still work. Don’t forget to blow out the drumstick sawdust off the sub once in a while! lol Value: If you have the cash, it's worth it. You have more control of what you hear & can mix up to 3 inputs + the 3 band EQ.! Manufacturer Support: Best,,,, because I haven't needed any! The Wow Factor: Sex Appeal???? It's a monitor! Overall: I eventually will replace it with the latest & greatest! I'm hoping to get 5 to 10 out of it!

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Roland PM30 beats all the rest!!"
Sound: I know I am the first one to have shipped the Roland PM30 from Japan for my TD20 V-drums into Singapore and possibly the only one who owns it right now in this country. The sound is crisp and clear, the dispersion is first class mainly cos of the satellite speakers delivring the full stereo and distinguish the different playing sounds from both the v-drums and the music I pump in from an iPod shuffle... the sub-woofer sits behind me and adds the wholesome sound to complete the experience. I could just sit on my drum throne and just listen to my mp3 songs playing thru this great amp! Feature: The castor wheels are really necessary for a heavy amp/sub woofer module and the mounting poles and clamps for the satellite speakers allow creativity and gives the v-drums that extra sophisticated look. However, I hate the connecting cables dangling all over the place and you have to connect the 2 satellites to the amp module and you can imagine the cables all over the floor... wish something could be done, otherwise everything else is OK, enough channels on the amp to be used.. one thing though.. mine's made in China it says on the box and the feel of the knobs are a very low-cost feel, different from the Roland amps that are manufactured in the USA. For the hefty price, one would expect more solid material rather than cheap feeling ones. Ease of Use: Plug n play... all the knobs are easily accessed and the description clear. But like I mentioned, the cables that need to be connected into the back of the amp is cumbersome.. also, the carry bar seems to be a little bit in the way for the cables to sit properly... otherwise, cool... Quality: Covered quality above... could be better.. somehow the front panel with the knobs looks a little toyish... not professional feel like other Roland amps I am used to... Value: As mentioned, pricey... but the sound makes up for it... Manufacturer Support: Don't know yet... based in Singapore, if anything goes wrong with this set, I guess it has to be shipped to Japan. The Wow Factor: It looks like a cool dude with the v-drums... and it gives me a very private experience sitting in the midst of the sound that goes all around you... and having a stereo effect on the v-drums gets the instrument sounds coming from the right places... high hat from the left and floor toms from the right... Overall: This is it!! If you own the v-drums and want to pair it up with a decent amplifier and speaker system, this is it... after all, it was designed for the v-drums, what else can you ask for?
