Roland's new RMP-12 marching percussion instrument is the latest addition to the Rhythm Coach line of products. The RMP-12 incorporates Roland's patented multi-layer mesh-head technology, allowing 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 wide variety of marching, concert, and world percussion instruments.
The battery-powered RMP-12 is light weight 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 that helps drummers improve timing, accuracy, speed, and stamina through a series of effective drills and exercises.
Pricing and availability will be announced at the Summer NAMM show in Nashville, June 20-22, 2008. For additional information, visit www.RolandUS.com. For additional new-product announcements, visit blog.emusician.com/briefingroom.
