Simple to use, Small and out-of-the-way, responsive, durable. Don't waste your money on the "other" brand triggers and pay extra for xlr cables...and giant mounts on your beautiful drums. These are elegant. Bolt the protector of the piezo on one lug and on the one next to it bolt the 1/4 jack; you will find this keeps the piezo nicely placed on the head without any torque to the trigger and also minimizes the look of the trigger. I've only used 2 brands of triggers and I can tell you these are phenomenal; I trust them to live concerts (1000-2000 attendees).

I tried everything with my Roland TD-7 and Alesis DM 8 pro and I just couldn't get it to stop double triggering. They're good if you're playing simple rock stuff, not good for metal. I ended up returning them.

Comments about Simmons Piezo Drum Trigger:

I mount mine on the acoustic tom shells just under the rim, it gives more control in eliminating double triggering and fine tuning the sensitivity. Due to so many factors such as room size, stage volume etc.I could never find a setting using head mounted triggers on my toms that was consistent. There was always a tom that would double trigger or just simple go off on a hard hit bass guitar note.
I mount on the heads of the bass drums on the kick side,only an inch or so from the rim.
This works for me in my rock band and picks up fast or slow hits.
The down side to these is that you have to be careful unplugging them as the 1/4"connector on the trigger will pull/rip out sticking to the 1/4" cable .
I now super glue the metal jack to the plastic edges of the trigger to prevent that (after several losses)

Great triggers.

Comments about Simmons Piezo Drum Trigger:

Works great on mesh heads if you have a module that can adjust sensitivity settings. Also, you might not be able to fit both the jack and hat on the same tension rod as pictured, but the wire is long enough use 2 adjacent tension rods.

    Comments about Simmons Piezo Drum Trigger:

    I discovered the Simmons trigger after months of trying to build my own triggers for acoustic drums. These triggers are super cheap and easy to install. It is even possible to remove the trigger. If you need to replace a drum head, it is possible to peel the trigger off and with the included extra tape re-install onto the new head. I am using these triggers on Snare, kick drum and floor tom. They work great. I haven't tried any other for purchase triggers, and right now I don't think I'll ever need to. Stocking up on these, they're awesome.

    best trigger for the price.

    By jdawg

    from seattle

    Comments about Simmons Piezo Drum Trigger:

    Dont waste your money on the ddrum triggers. these triggers are far more durable and work just as good. Im running these through a dm pro and i couldnt be more satisfied with these. the only problem i ran into was that when playing live it would trigger at random, easily fixed by turning the thresh up.
