  • New Roland Prices

    Hey guys,

    I just got my musicians friend update and they had some new NAMM products in it. Here's a link for all the new Roland products with their prices posted. Is it just me or does $5000 for the new Session set seem like a lot more than the standard V's? Well take it easy.

    hope this is helpful,
    Jeff

    It is a lot of money. But the dollar is high and drum shops certainly will go under Roland's suggested retail prices. Just wait

        The V Pro w/stand at MF is $3,499 and the V Pro stand is $419. The V Concert w/stand is $3,999 while the Concert stand can be purchased for $399. If the only difference between the Pro and Concert is the better stand and new Purple pads, why is the V Concert stand (if purchased separately) $20 less? BTW, the list on the Pro and Concert is the same $4,999.

          What happened to the $6000 rant? Okay, so if this is being called a $5000 kit, it wilkl go for about the same price as VPros after the dust settles. It is a given that we can all fo to our shop and get 35-40% off retail. I view this intro of new products as a strong plus, a positive. After they have been on the florr, they will be about the same price.

            V Pro list is $5000
            V Session list is $6300
            After the dust settles, the Session will still be about $4700. That is quite a bit more than the Pros. Shops won't offer 40% off as they pay more than that. The sessions will sell but I predict the red color will change by Summer NAMM.

              I don't know what you paid for your Vs... but let's assume a very safe number... $3400. IF the Session kit ends up going for $4700, that's a difference of $1300.

              The sessions have the very keen new cymbal pads, as well as the KD-120 and the tdw-1 is included... isn't that worth something? I mean, maybe my numbers are off, but there have been changes and improvements to the V-pro... hence the new name, and the new price.

                I agree with rus.
                The Session kit comes with some great improvements that are worth the money.
                The rack also comes with the new clamps that I haven't been able to break yet!

                  Remember,
                  2 new kits. V Concert is replacing V Pro. What makes the Concert worth $500 more than the Pro?

                    Where does it say that? (seriously) I was under the impression the V-pro was replaced by BOTH kits... you know, since they don't make the V-pro anymore

                        I'll pass on the $500 paint. Give me white any day. I think the new colors look cheap.

                          I like the storm-trooper white myself ,but would really like a chrome finish like my TAMA's. I'm still stuck with my PD-9's,7's 5's and kd-7's though.

                              If you pay that kind of money for an electronic drum set, you're an idiot.
