Roland BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad

Mount this bar trigger to the rim of an acoustic drum or V-Drums pad. With the BT-1's unobtrusive curved shape, you can add electronic percussion to any kit.

The compact and affordable Roland BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad makes it easy to add electronic triggering to any drum kit. With a curved shape that mounts on the side of a V-Drums V-Pad or acoustic drum, it provides convenient playing access without disturbing your existing kit layout. The BT-1 is great not only for playing sounds in a V-Drums module or SPD-series percussion pad, but also for convenient control of a variety of functions like start/stop of backing songs and phrase loops, and much more.

Additional Triggering for V-Drums Kits

If you're a V-Drums player, the compact BT-1 makes it simple to incorporate additional triggers without having to add more pads. This gives you access to additional sounds, as well as convenient control of an enormous range of performance features in your V-Drums module or an SPD-series percussion pad. And with its small size, it's easy to add additional BT-1s as needed to continuously expand the expressive power of your Roland percussion rig.

Easily Incorporate Electronics with Acoustic Drums

The BT-1 is an easy and affordable way to integrate electronics with your acoustic kit. Unlike large round pads and inconvenient foot switches, the BT-1 blends seamlessly with your kit without adjusting your setup or playing style. Simply plug the BT-1 into a trigger input on a V-Drums module or SPD-series percussion pad and enjoy a universe of possibilities that Roland electronic percussion brings.

I bought 2 of these for my TD20SX Roland kit and tried a few various positions on my kit before I found the perfect spot to mount them, They are not to big to mount anywhere on my kit, but they are big enough to make sure you hit them everytime. These trigger bars are still a secret to many drummers, because once they are truly discovered most drummers will have a few of these somewhere in their electronic or acoustic kits. Awesome purchase for under 100 bucks! Give them a try, you won't be disappointed! I'm purchasing a few more.
