Roland Provides Sneak Peak Of New Rhythm Coach Product: The RMP-12
Roland debuts the new RMP-12 marching percussion instrument at this year's WGI World Championships.
According to Roland, this latest addition to the Rhythm Coach line of products offers enhanced playability, expressiveness, and versatility for practice and performance applications.
The RMP-12 is the world's first electronic marching percussion instrument to incorporate Roland's patented multi-layer mesh head technology, designed to allow drummers to practice longer with less stress and fatigue. The 12-inch pad with rim triggering connects to a newly-designed module with 128 different sounds and effects, including a variety of marching, concert, and world percussion instruments.
We're told that the battery-powered RMP-12 is lightweight and portable, and can easily attach to standard marching carriers or concert snare stands. Its variety of I/O options include an audio output for a wired or wireless connection to any amplification system, a mix input, and a headphone output for quiet practice.
The RMP-12 also includes the Rhythm Coach, a practice tool designed to help drummers improve timing, accuracy, speed, and stamina through a series of drills and exercises.
Pricing and availability will be announced at the Summer NAMM show in Nashville, TN, June 20-22, 2008.
