October New Arrivals

October is here, and with it, reinforcements for your recording and performing needs. Take your pick from Roland’s assorted percussion pads, or go loud with Ibanez Troubadour II amplifiers.

Also featured this month are the Aston microphones; the UK’s for-experts-by-experts solution to your frontman’s needs. All that and more, we’ve cherry-picked the best of our latest arrivals – a little something for every aspect of your recordings and performing.

Roland SPD::ONE Series
ONE’s true colours

One for your every need, Roland’s new SPD::One series of compact electronic percussion pads come assorted; wav, percussion, electro, and kick. Designed by and for experts to be accessible for guitarists, singers, and DJs and producers, all four models feature USB-MIDI to record off the cuff beats and rhythms.

The wav pad allows any musician to tinker with their own sounds and samples, with the percussion pad allows the same and comes with instant access to preloaded genuine percussion sounds. Similarly with the electro and kick pads, they come already armed with electronic and processed sounds, and kick drum and percussion beats respectively.

Clamp them onto your drum or mic stand with complete ease, or use the tabletops and floor, and attempt your next track with onboard sounds!
