Noise Eater V-Drums Research Lab
Roland has been testing a new product called Noise Eater, which uses unique sound isolation techniques to significantly reduce noise and vibrations to rooms below. This never-before-seen video provides an inside look into the testing process.

Noise Eater Technology for V-Drums: The Easy Solution to Acoustic Noise Transfer Problems
Roland’s innovative Noise Eater technology helps V-Drums users enjoy playing any time without disturbing family members and neighbors in adjoining rooms and living spaces. One of the many benefits of V-Drums—and their patented mesh-head pads in particular—is that they’re extremely quiet acoustically, allowing players to use headphones to practice and record in situations where it would be impossible to use acoustic drums. However, the physical action of using kick and hi-hat pedals in a multi-level building can result in unwelcome noise and vibration being transferred to rooms below via direct sound conduction through the floor. Based on Roland’s tests, the unique isolating properties of Noise Eater products reduce this noise transfer by approximately 75 percent over using pedals without them, a dramatic improvement that lets you play day or night in situations where the noise could otherwise be a problem.
