Versatile Add-On Trigger Pad for V-Drums and Acoustic Drums
Los Angeles, CA, January 21, 2013 — Roland is pleased to announce the BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad, a compact device that attaches easily to nearly any V-Drums® V-Pad™ or acoustic drum. The BT-1 is great not only for playing sounds in a Roland V-Drums module or SPD-series percussion pad, but also for convenient control of a variety of useful functions.
The BT-1 is a simple, single-trigger pad with a compact, curved shape. It directly attaches to the hoop of most drums using a tension rod or a standard rod-type mount with the included attachment parts. The internal design eliminates false triggering due to crosstalk while playing surrounding drums and/or pads.
Plugging the BT-1 into a trigger input on a V-Drums module or SPD-series percussion pad allows users to play any sound or trigger a wide variety of functions. These include start/stop of songs and phrase loops, kit selection, tap tempo, effects on/off, and many others.
For V-Drums players, the BT-1 makes it simple to incorporate additional triggers without having to add more pads.
For acoustic drummers, the BT-1 offers an easy and affordable way to integrate electronics with their kits. Unlike large round pads and footswitches, the BT-1 blends seamlessly without the player having to adjust their setup or playing style.
