America’s Got Talent finalists Recycled Percussion were on-hand to wow the audience while the judges tallied their final votes.
The finalists were selected from hundreds of local, regional and national competitions worldwide during 2011. Winners were selected based on musicianship, stage presence, and the creative use of Roland's V-Drum technology.
As part of his first place prize, Baard Kolstad won the most technologically advanced and expressive electronic drum kit offered by Roland: the new TD-30KV V-Pro Series that debuted that same NAMM Show.
The TD-30KV features the TD-30 SuperNATURAL Sound Engine with behavior modeling and advanced sensing technology.
Tim Root, Roland Corporation U.S. Drum and Percussion Product Manager comments:
"This first ever V-Drums World Championship was a historical night. By using V-Drums, the SPD-SX sampling pad, and the SPD-30 Octapad, all sixteen finalists showed that this is the future of drumming. By combining technique and showmanship with an incredible array of sounds and rhythms from all over the world, each contestant was a true champion. To see and hear the different styles and sounds from every part of the globe was truly inspiring."
