Advanced Amplification for V-Drums

Roland’s V-Drums, the world’s leading electronic drum kits, deserve nothing less than superior amplification. Introducing the PM-30, a new 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.

  • - 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-Drums rack system
  • - Casters and side-panel handles for convenient transportation

Full-Range Sound

With its two satellite speakers and matching 12" woofer enclosure with tweeter, the 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.

Triple Power Pack

Three 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.

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's 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 newly created DSP.

I/O Options

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

Transport & Setup

A solid crossbar spans the top of the PM-30’s base unit for convenient carrying; two side handles are provided as well. The two satellite speakers can be clamped onto the crossbar or mounted onto a drum rack.
