An Affordable Practice Pad with V-Drums Technology.

The RMP-1 Rhythm Coach Pack gives students a great new way to practice drumming in almost total silence, thanks to its mesh V-Practice Pad (RP-2) and Rhythm Coach (RM-2) sound module.

A Better Way to Practice

The Rhythm Coach Pack includes the 8-inch RP-2 V-Practice Pad, which uses a patented mesh head to deliver the feel of a real snare without the noise. But the real fun starts with the RM-2 Rhythm Coach. The "brain" of the system, the RM-2 includes 28 drum sounds, a built-in metronome and a Coach mode with helpful training exercises (see below).

An Expandable System

With two trigger inputs on the RM-2 module, you can connect the RP-2 V-Practice Pad and a separate kick drum pad—like Roland's KD-7—for practicing snare and kick together. You can even play along with CDs using the RM-2's external audio input. An optional PDS-2 Pad Stand can be purchased separately for more comfortable practice.
