This year it’s been 16 years working with Roland UK and 10 years since I first got invited to work with the incredible Research and Development team in Japan, where I currently am.
Over the last 10 years I’ve been very privileged to add my input to kit design and creation of the Octapad SPD-30, TD-9, TD-11, TD-15, TD-17, TD-25, TD-30, TD-50, SPD-Sx, TM-2 and HPD-20 Handsonic.
Things have changed so much since I was in my small cold converted garage studio designing rock and progressive kits for my first project, the TD-9, at that time I still had my day job. I’m sure I’m not alone in this very small team including the brilliant michaelschack and drummybrand that get a HUGE kick out of seeing Roland V-Drums owners all over the world playing the kits that we contribute to.
