    Comments about Roland RT-30K Acoustic Bass Drum Trigger:

    I bought this when I still had my old alesis module, it didn't work very well. It had lots of missed hits, and continuously double triggered. Thinking the problem may have been the module, I went out and bought the Roland TM-2 module. Problems persisted. I've watched dozens of videos on how to dial in the TM-2 with this exact trigger, different techniques muffling/tightening the kick head etc. I just can't get this thing to work right. I'm probably going to get the Ddrum Chrome Elite and give that a shot. I'm really bummed out about this trigger because I've been using roland products forever, but this thing just isn't working out.

      Comments about Roland RT-30K Acoustic Bass Drum Trigger:

      Roland always makes a solid product. When I first plugged it up I was concerned that there may be issues with cross talk and ghost hits, but they were definitely kept at a minimum. Of course that was before any muting of my kick what so ever, and no I have no issues what so ever. At first I was concerned with going the acoustic trigger route, but I'm more than. Pleased with the outcome of this trigger

          Comments about Roland RT-30K Acoustic Bass Drum Trigger:

          This thing is great, easy to slip on and tighten screw. That's it, but place it opposite side of floor to around 8oclock on drum. Did not think it would be so dynamic in response. It's so good I now use to in my recording studio also. Having a bass drum trigger included in recording lets you do about anything with it..

              I got this to use with my Roland SPDSX. I was thrilled with how easy it was to set up. I told the SPDSX what trigger I was inputing and I was drumming! I use this at church on my acoustic set to accent and change the kick. I highly recommend it!

              Comments about Roland RT-30K Acoustic Bass Drum Trigger:

              Just plug into a sampler and start playing-Roland TM-2 works best but a Simmons pad worked fine/NOTE: trigger would NOT fit my vintage Ludwig and Vistalite hoops as they are larger than 1 and five eighths inch so the new thicker hoops would have to be notched to 1 and a half to one and five eighths to work. GREAT for sound reinforcement/ no mics needed for small venues and you get Pro sounding drums.... wonderful effects with small gear. Easy adjustment for sensitivity- picks up soft hits as well as double rolls.
