V-DRUMS ACOUSTIC DESIGN TOM PAD WITH SHALLOW WOOD SHELL AND DUAL ZONES
V-Drums Acoustic Design expands the V-Drums experience by blending the distinctive aesthetic of acoustic drums with Roland's leading digital drum technology. Every component realizes the authentic crafted appearance of high-quality acoustic drums, with full-diameter wood shells, deluxe shell wraps, and heavy-duty chrome hardware designed by Roland.
Crafted with a shallow-depth wood shell, the 12" PDA120L-BK tom pad delivers V-Drums Acoustic Design looks and playability in a compact size. Dual zones provide independent head and rim triggering, while the newly developed sensor system eliminates hot spots for accurate and even response across the entire playing surface of the head.

Just bought this the other day, and I must say I am enjoying this a lot! Until I played this pad, I never really noticed how much difference the hotspotting on the other pads make. This pad has no hotspotting, which is really cool. Unfortunally, it hasn't got positional sensing, which I thought I would miss a lot. But turns out, the fact it has no hot spotting is much more important than the fact that it has no positional sensing. Actually, this pad feels more realistic to me than the more expansive PD125BK, which basically has been the roland golden standard for snare pads for years.
Well built workhorse pad
I bought this pad for floortom use (TD-25 module) and so far im really pleased with it. Trigger system is "3-zones" so it completely eliminates hotspotting but unfortunately, because of the 3 zones trigger desing, it doesnt' support positional sensing (TD-30 supports ps for toms for example). Build quality is robust and I think it looks really nice and beefy compared to more shallow roland pads (Pdx-100, 8 etc..) Overall I think this is a great upgrade from PDX's to a larger diameter pad and it's also way way cheaper than for example the PD-128BC.
