With their superb tracking ability, DDrum Triggers set a new standard for trigger microphones. With absolutely no adhesives required, DDrum triggers clamp onto the sides of standard drum hoops. The specially designed transducer is softly pressed against the drumhead. The advantages are obvious: You can change drumheads over and over without damaging the transducer. The metal casing protects the trigger from accidental drum hits. The ultra-light pressure of the transducer against the head prevents any "damping" effect. The XLR output ensures a reliable connection.
DDrum Triggers Add a New Dimension to Drumming
In the studio, for example, hook up your DDrum Triggers to existing acoustic drums, and connect them to your sound module. You can combine great drum sounds with MIDI information almost instantly. On the road, custom-tailor your acoustic sound with the digital studio sounds in your DDrum sound module. Whether in studio sessions or on the road, DDrum Triggers are the perfect choice for the demanding drummer.
Three Types of Triggers
The DDrum triggers come in 3 different models and fit standard drum rim/hoops: Tom Tom, Kick drum, and a special DDrum Trigger for the snare, with a separate sensor for the rim.
The snare trigger can also be used on tom toms.
Why DDrum Triggers are Better
Existing drum sensors consisting of piezo elements applied to the head of an acoustic drum have not been perceived as giving a "natural response." After analyzing the waveform patterns from acoustic drums, Clavia has created a patented transducer solution using vectored amplitude measurements (VAM). Other problems include double triggering (you strike the drum once and you hear additional unwanted strikes) and crosstalk (you strike Tom 1 and Tom 2 plays too). Two other common problems with conventional triggers are: durability (when you hit them accidentally they can break) and unreliable mounting methods. Triggers mounted using adhesives can accidentally separate from the drumhead.
- Playing dynamics are recognized in a "natural way," allowing for a realistic dynamic response across the entire drumhead (from the center of the head to the rim).
- Double triggering problem is reduced
- Special design trigger reduces the crosstalk problem
- No muffling is needed when used together with DDrum sound modules: crosstalk and double triggering are totally eliminated
- Shock-mounted construction
- XLR output for professional connection
- Fits most types of molded hoops
- No adhesive is needed
- Safely secured at the hoop with a standard tension rod
- Sturdy construction
- All parts interchangeable
DDrum triggers are perfect for the demanding musician. They are rugged, roadworthy, and very easily removable. When using DDrum triggers with a DDrum sound module, it sounds like you're playing a perfectly miked drum kit. DDrum triggers are protected by US patent # 5 345:037. Other countries patent pending.
