The NE-1 Noise Eater is a small sound isolation foot designed to be used with a kick pad and hi-hat stand in a V-Drums set along with the companion NE-10 Noise Eater (sold separately). Thanks to a unique rubber damper structure, NE-1 units placed under each leg of a kick pad and hi-hat stand dramatically reduce the transfer of noises and vibrations through the floor caused by normal playing. When the NE-1 is used in combination with NE-10 units placed under kick and hi-hat pedals, these products provide a simple and convenient way for users in multi-level buildings to enjoy V-Drums freely without disturbing people occupying rooms or dwellings below.
Roland’s innovative Noise Eater technology helps V-Drums users enjoy playing any time without disturbing family members and neighbors in adjoining rooms and living spaces. One of the many benefits of V-Drums—and their patented mesh-head pads in particular—is that they’re extremely quiet acoustically, allowing players to use headphones to practice and record in situations where it would be impossible to use acoustic drums. However, the physical action of using kick and hi-hat pedals in a multi-level building can result in unwelcome noise and vibration being transferred to rooms below via direct sound conduction through the floor. Based on Roland’s tests, the unique isolating properties of Noise Eater products reduce this noise transfer by approximately 75 percent over using pedals without them, a dramatic improvement that lets you play day or night in situations where the noise could otherwise be a problem.
