KD-180 Bass Drum brings the look and feel of an 18" acoustic bass drum to any V-Drums kit.

The Roland KD-180 bass drum gives V-Drums players the familiar feel and acoustic tone of an 18" kick drum. Roland's innovative kick trigger electronics are pre-installed in a high-quality, all-birch shell to provide stable triggering with an authentic playing experience. Drummers can now bring the presence of an acoustic bass drum to any electronic kit.

Authentic 18-Inch Acoustic Shell

The KD-180 features a traditional 18" acoustic bass drum shell made of birch, a tonewood favored for its balanced frequency response. The shell's size and material give the KD-180 a full, resonant tone that sounds and feels like playing an acoustic drum. An internal air damper creates backpressure as the beater strikes the head, providing natural rebound and realistic feel.

Advanced Kick Trigger Electronics

Roland's kick trigger electronics are pre-installed inside the KD-180 shell. The trigger electronics send signals to the V-Drums sound module with reliable accuracy and minimal latency. Drummers can choose any kick drum sound from their module's library to pair with the KD-180's acoustic tone and feel. The kick trigger electronics are also compatible with double bass pedals for dynamic performances.

Hybrid-Ready Design

The KD-180 is ideal for hybrid drum setups that blend acoustic and electronic elements. Its acoustic shell provides an authentic bass drum sound, while the integrated kick trigger electronics allow drummers to layer electronic kick drum sounds from their V-Drums module. With the KD-180, drummers can achieve acoustic and electronic bass drum tones in one compact, plug-and-play package.

Portable and Ready to Play

The KD-180 comes fully assembled and ready to connect to your V-Drums module. Despite its 18" size, the kick drum is relatively lightweight and portable. The KD-180 is a convenient, all-in-one solution for bringing the commanding sound of an acoustic bass drum to electronic drum kits and hybrid setups anywhere you play.
