Drummers are always looking for more … more sounds, more things to hit and more ways to play. The desire to add things like extra drums, cymbals, and percussion instruments to their set-up has kept music stores open for years! In recent times, the trend towards including electronic percussion to acoustic kits has increased dramatically and for many reasons. The biggest appeal might very well be in the fact that it opens up a whole new world of possibilities for every drummer. You want more sounds? The quickest and easiest way is to include a percussion sound module (drum brain) or for those who like creating your own sounds, a sampler like the popular Roland SPD-SX. Position some pads in and around your acoustic kit then connect them to the sound source and you’re ready to begin a journey into new worlds of musical expression. Some drummers like to use acoustic drum triggers to blend their acoustic sounds with their electronics which is a great concept in itself.
A brand new solution comes with the Roland BT-1 Bar Trigger, a uniquely designed curve-shaped bar trigger pad. It is ergonomically shaped to place in and around any drum set, but what’s even more unique is that it is designed to be mounted right on a snare drum or tom! Only the sophisticated triggering system inside the BT-1 allows for this drum mount positioning, impossible with any other trigger pad. You can bang away on your acoustic drum and the BT-1 that’s mounted to its rim via the drum’s tension rod won’t misfire from excess vibration. With this high tech isolation, the BT-1 needs to be struck to be triggered, impossible until now. Add multiple BT-1s around the set for unlimited and seamless triggering of sounds, samples, loops, and effects. Trigger your SPD-SX with a conveniently placed BT-1 or expand your OCTAPAD with additional trigger inputs.
The BT-1 is the gateway to expanding your drum sounds and changing the way you play. It bridges the gap between your sticks and your imagination, making it the quickest and easiest solution for MORE. If you can imagine it, you can do it using the Roland BT-1.
