Main Features
• The PM-30 is a high-quality stereo monitor amplifier designed especially for use
with Roland’s V-Drums.
This 2.1-channel system features a total output of 200 watts to provide a drum
sound with amazing presence.
• Main Unit features 12-inches (30-cm) woofer plus tweeter.
The wedge-shaped design makes monitoring easier and provides both a sense of
power along with great monitor performance.
Additionally, the PM-30 features switchable “SUBWOOFER” and “FULL
RANGE” playback modes (ranges), as well as a woofer control function that
allows you to balance the volume level with the satellite speakers.
• Each satellite speaker includes a high-quality 4-inches (10-cm) full-range speaker.
Featuring authentic wood cabinets, these units provide clear, natural stereo sound.
In addition, they come with specialized mounting stands, enabling the units to be
set up in a variety of ways.
• The system includes dedicated channels designed to reproduce all of the V-Drums
sound.
Along with superior basic performance, the V-Drums channels also provide great
additional features, such as a PUNCH switch, which produces an even more
powerful drum sound, and a V-Drums input, which enables connection to a VDrums sound module using only a single stereo (TRS) cable coming from the VDrums headphones output.
• The unit comes equipped with a three-channel stereo mixer function for superior
system expandability.
In addition to a V-Drums sound module, you can also connect and simultaneously
monitor multiple devices, such as additional sound modules and CD players, MP3
players, or any other external audio sources.
Also included is a three-band equalizer to further shape the sound and a LINE
OUT jack useful for expanding the system.
• Includes handle and casters for easy portability.

IMPORTANT NOTES
291b
In addition to the items listed under “IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS” and “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on pages 2,
3, 4 and 5, please read and observe the following:
Power Supply
301
• Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is
being used by an electrical appliance that is controlled by
an inverter (such as a refrigerator, washing machine,
microwave oven, or air conditioner), or that contains a
motor. Depending on the way in which the electrical
appliance is used, power supply noise may cause this unit
to malfunction or may produce audible noise. If it is not
practical to use a separate electrical outlet, connect a
power supply noise filter between this unit and the
electrical outlet.
307
• Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the
power to all units. This will help prevent malfunctions
and/or damage to speakers or other devices.
308
• Although the LED is switched off when the POWER
switch is switched off, this does not mean that the unit has
been completely disconnected from the source of power. If
you need to turn off the power completely, first turn off
the POWER switch, then unplug the power cord from the
power outlet. For this reason, the outlet into which you
choose to connect the power cord’s plug should be one
that is within easy reach and readily accessible.
Maintenance
401a
• For everyday cleaning wipe the unit with a soft, dry cloth
or one that has been slightly dampened with water. To
remove stubborn dirt, use a cloth impregnated with a
mild, non-abrasive detergent. Afterwards, be sure to wipe
the unit thoroughly with a soft, dry cloth.
556
• When connecting / disconnecting all cables, grasp the
connector itself—never pull on the cable. This way you
will avoid causing shorts, or damage to the cable’s
internal elements.
557
• A small amount of heat will radiate from the unit during
normal operation.
558a
• To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to keep the unit’s
volume at reasonable levels. You may prefer to use
headphones, so you do not need to be concerned about
those around you (especially when it is late at night).
559a
• When you need to transport the unit, package it in the box
(including padding) that it came in, if possible. Otherwise,
you will need to use equivalent packaging materials.
562
• Use a cable from Roland to make the connection. If using
some other make of connection cable, please note the
following precautions.
• Some connection cables contain resistors. Do not use
cables that incorporate resistors for connecting to this
unit. The use of such cables can cause the sound level
to be extremely low, or impossible to hear. For information on cable specifications, contact the manufacturer of the cable.
• Wrap the power cord around the cord hook when transporting or storing the unit.
402
• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any
kind, to avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or
deformation.
Additional Precautions
553
• Use a reasonable amount of care when using the unit’s
buttons, sliders, or other controls; and when using its jacks
and connectors. Rough handling can lead to malfunctions.

as a stage monitor.
You can monitor the V-Drums sounds and sounds from other sources, all simultaneously.
Another benefit of this setup is that using the V-Drums stereo input allows you to adjust the monitor (PM-30) volume level with
the V-Drums sound module’s PHONES knob while leaving the output level to the PA unchanged.

* Depending on the settings, the sounds output by the PM-30 may cause the V-Drums pads to trigger by mistake or otherwise operate
incorrectly. If this occurs, resolve the problem either by positioning the PM-30 and the V-Drums pads further apart or by lowering the
sensitivity setting on the V-Drums sound module.
The PM-30 is not merely a monitor for use with V-Drums, but also can be used as a monitor with a variety of other devices, and
can even be used as a simple PA in smaller venues.
Here are some specific examples of different ways to use the system.
Satellite Speakers Attached to the Main Unit’s Handle
Using the same procedure as that used in attaching the satellite speakers to the V-Drums stand, the satellite speakers can be
clamped to the main unit’s top handle to provide an integrated monitor system.
With band performances at smaller studios, you can produce an effect very similar to acoustic drums by placing the PM-30
behind the V-Drums player, thus allowing the other band members to monitor the V-Drums sound at the same time.
Application Examples 1
Using the PM-30 as a V-Drums Main
Speaker for Band Performances in
Small Studios
To prevent the satellite speakers from overturning,
attach them so they are oriented perpendicular to
the floor.

You can remove the mount bars from the satellite speakers
and attach these speakers to mic stands (optional).
This allows you to separate the satellite speakers to emphasize the
stereo effect and provides greater freedom in speaker layouts.
You can remove the mount bars from the satellite speakers
and place these speakers on a desk or table.
This allows you to use the PM-30 as a 2.1-channel monitor
with greater spread when playing synthesizers or other such
instruments.
