NAMM06: Roland Introduce New Handsonic Model…

…And an improved support stand for all Handsonics      18/01/06
Roland’s original HandSonic electronic hand percussion has been a great success and now there’s a second member of the family: the HandSonic 10 (HPD-10). More affordable and streamlined than its big brother, it offers the same pad response that made the original HandSonic so popular, but has a specialized set of features and a fresh batch of sounds, rhythms, and effects.
An all-new collection of sounds has been created for the HandSonic 10; more than 350 high-quality instruments are onboard. All of the percussive essentials have been included — congas, bongos, tabla, djembe, cajon, etc. — as well as melodic percussion, drum kit, special effects, and more.
The HandSonic 10 also offers a new type of metronome with an inspiring selection of patterns and a comfortable round playing surface divided into ten individual pads offers pressure and positional sensitivity. The popular Roland D Beam is also included for dramatic triggering and pitch control. In addition there’s a Rhythm Coach virtual trainer for behind the scenes practice.
While the HandSonic 10 is primarily a hand percussion instrument, users can add a Roland kick pad (optional) via the external trigger input, or add a Roland V-Pad. The input is dual-trigger compatible for double the triggering power via an optional PCS-31L Y-cable.
New Support Stand
Along with the debut of the Roland HandSonic 10 comes a new double-braced support stand: the PDS-10. It’s the successor to the PDS-15, and features a newly improved angle clamp that provides 200 degrees of tilt. The stand is designed to be used with Roland’s HPD- and SPD-series instruments, which include the HandSonic 10, HandSonic 15, SPD-20, and SPD-S.
