    I will check again but don't hold your breath on this, there was no patent created when I checked, usually patents are like 1 year before, and atv already took the optical controler hihat patent, digital hihat with push button controler would make no sens. But digital hihat would cost like 900$ if not more, vh13 already cost 750$. I doubt this will happens.

    Maybe Roland will do their releases in Sept like the past.

    Roland also just recently moved to a larger distribution center in CA as well.

    Conclusion 0, roland did not showed any current edrum, atv showed nothing new, no pro line etc..yamaha 0, pearl was not there etc.

    I am afraid the market is too much small for big innovations and newer attemps to do things are the same outdated 10 years old tech, if you see on other instrument, edrum look like living in 90 erra in general at very tiny exception.

    Big problem is many users indirectly are promoting to stick in these erra.

    Maybe I have my years screwed up. I thought it was this past January they downsized from the huge booth the previous year. All I remember is they had something like a third of the damn show taken up (lol) one year, and then the next year, they didn't. I'm probably off a year, but I thought that was the recent show.
    The recent show was back to having the stage and performances. 2018 was really different and smaller. 2017 was a larger area and had bigger name performers. They moved all the audio to a new building and Roland was there. It is less mayhem than having everything in the main hall. If I go next year, I think I will skip Saturday. It is way too crowded with maybe 100,000 people.

    Actually, Roland did cut back at this past winter NAMM. They did not get the large (huge) booth they usually do, but I suspect they'll only be doing that on major releases moving forward. As for summer, they almost always only show Boss products. Very rarely do they actually throw in "Roland" releases in the summer.

    It seems odd that the largest producer of E-Drums would have nothing to show....
    Given the age of the TD-25 I would imagine that surely they are cooking something?....
    Are you referring to new Edrums? I wouldn't call their "booth" a small presence!
