The BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad opens up your kit like never before

This pad is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. No seriously, this curved bar trigger is mountable to acoustic drums, electronic drums, and L-arms. This thing has incredibly versatility when it comes to setting up. You can use this pad for cowbells, jam blocks, bongos, or whatever else you’d want. You can even set this up on your favorite electronic snare and get those side sticking sounds you’ve wanted for years. The size of this pad literally allows you to set up as many of these on your kit as you want. The foam rubber pad provides great playability that is easy on the wrists, decreasing fatigue and allowing you to play longer. When mounted off of the lug of a drum, this pad doesn’t effect the sound or resonance at all. In fact you can still tune the drums with this pad mounted off the lug. This beauty will open you up to new streams of thought while playing and give you just what you need to bring your musicianship to a whole new level.

Comments about Roland Bt-1 Bar Trigger Pad:

Thought I would get four of these to add some additional effects or percussion to my Roland TD30 eKit, but they each require a stereo plug. Since they are mono, single trigger pads - I thought I would get some stereo to 2 mono cable splitters and hook 2 up to one input (1 to the head and 1 to the rim)...NOPE. So I bought a splitter from drum splitters (these have a resistor to make it work with drums)...NOPE. The BT-1 requires a stereo input - even though it is a single trigger mono pad!

I would have bought something else if I knew this.
