Time to make some last minute changes to your letters to Santa, because Roland's HD-1 V-Drums have been praised as a perfect present this yuletide.

Channel Five's The Gadget Show recently sent its presenters out to find a killer hi-tech gift, checking out all manner of satnavs, laptops and a ton more. At the end of their Christmas gift hunt, Otis Deley and Jason Bradbury (pictured above) plumped for the HD-1, calling it "a much more sophisticated gadget proposition".

The HD-1 is Roland's entry-level V Drum offering. For more details take a look at www.roland.co.uk/hd1. Let's hope we find one in our Christmas stocking.
