A Revolution in Marching Percussion

A revolutionary instrument for marching percussion, the new RMP-12 brings an exciting new dimension of portable sound and expression. With its tension adjustable mesh drum head and integrated V-Drums sound module loaded with hundreds of instantly-selectable instruments and sound effects, the RMP-12 offers expression and versatility that acoustic percussion can’t match.

  • - 12-inch mesh pad with rim triggering
  • - Newly designed module with a variety of sounds
  • - A reliable Live Mode to focus on your marching performance
  • - Built-in Rhythm Coach for skill building
  • - Lightweight and portable with battery power
  • - Mix input and audio output for personal and professional use
  • - Headphone output for quiet practice
  • - Easily attaches to standard marching carriers (via optional OP-RMP12) and snare stands

Mesh-Head Comfort

The RMP-12’s patented mesh head provides low acoustic noise, high durability, and unsurpassed comfort. Head tension can be adjusted via drum key, just like an acoustic drum, for the perfect stick response. The head is also replaceable, like an acoustic drum.

World of Sound

The RMP-12 offers high-quality marching snares, toms, bass drums, cymbals, and other drums and percussion instruments. It also contains a variety of Latin percussion as well as electronic sounds. The four memory buttons let you store your favorite sounds and call them up instantly during your performance.

Rhythm Coach Onboard

The Rhythm Coach helps you build speed, stamina, and accuracy. Even if you're not in the Rhythm Coach mode, you can practice with the Time Check whenever you start the metronome. The Time Check Score, which grades accuracy, is one of the menus in the Rhythm Coach. Other effective exercises include the Auto Up/Down, which gradually speeds up and slows down the metronome, and the DynaMeter, which shows your stroke dynamics on the screen.

Marching Percussion

Perfect for extended wear, the RMP-12 is lightweight and battery-powered. It can be attached to standard marching drum carriers for wireless transmission*, allowing you to freely move around during your performance. For practice, mount the RMP-12 to a concert snare stand and use the Roland CUBE Street amplifier to monitor or simply connect headphones for quiet practice.
*Commercial wireless systems sold separately
