        Not worth your money.

            Comments about Pulse TK-5 Acoustic Trigger 5-Piece Set:

            3 out of 5 of them didn't even work even with their gain maxed out on the console. They are not compatible with any brain as the product description on the pulse website states. You could make these with novice soldiering skills yourself for cheaper then what they sell them for. I tried them with a Yamaha DTXpress Special IV console and they do not produce the correct voices and are atrocious to fine-tune so they don't double trigger.

            Comments about Pulse TK-5 Acoustic Trigger 5-Piece Set:

            More sensitive than Pintech, more durable than d-drum redshots. Nice thick cables but the mounting collars are flimsy plastic. Need metal ones with rubber collar linings like the pintechs. Also loose after mounting but can be easliy fixed by wrapping with a little duct tape and then put collar over the tape. Used 3M double sided tape to mount, works great. Was skeptical but for the money, these are awesome. They adjust, modular wise, just like any other trigger but with better accuracy in my opinion.

            Comments about Pulse TK-5 Acoustic Trigger 5-Piece Set:

            I bought these triggers to convert my acoustic drums into an electronic hybrid (DM-5). I used pearl mesh heads and placed the trigger about 1" in from 1200. So far I have been impressed with the simplicity and durability of the design. The trigger seems to be holding on just fine using the included 3M tape. I currently only have the snare drum set up (the most difficult drum by far to get the settings correct) and am pretty happy with the results...next up is to test the triggers with muted cymbals...if you have a DM-5 and are considering building a similar set-up, here is what I used to get the snare where I wanted it:
            XTalk 80, Dec 15, Noise 39, Gain 74, Vcurve 4

            Great Inexpensive Triggers

            By Steven Mundschau

            from Yorba Linda, CA

            Comments about Pulse TK-5 Acoustic Trigger 5-Piece Set:

            Overall, I give these triggers a 9 because they are so bare. However, the lack of protective housing is easily resolved with smart placement. Triggers are very responsive to light hits and dynamics. If I had to get more triggers, I would definitely be happy to purchase more of these.
            I bought these triggers to convert my acoustic kit, but didn't want to spend more money to do the same thing. Although the triggers are stuck on the drum heads with double stick tape, they seem very responsive. I was surprised to see the responsiveness when I first played my "new kit." The dynamic response was much more impressive than I had expected.
            Very glad I didn't spend more money.
            I give quality a 7 because these triggers are very bare bones. I am not a fan of the fact that you use double stick tape to attach the triggers to the heads, but it seems to be doing alright. And as there is no protective housing, I had to place the triggers on the far edge of the head, away from my main playing surface. I was concerned this would affect the responsiveness, but the triggers pick up most of my hits with the exception of the lightest hits. These triggers were a big surprise. Very happy.
            These triggers are a great value. I was looking at another set of triggers, at double the price, but am glad I picked these. Basically, if I bought the other triggers, I would have been paying $50 for a protective metal housing on each trigger.

            Does the trick.

            By Freeagent78

            from Concord, NH

            Comments about Pulse TK-5 Acoustic Trigger 5-Piece Set:

            I have only been using the kick drum trigger hooked up to a DM5 module and after playing with the settings it has been working like a charm and doing what it is supposed to do. I placed the trigger on the inside of the batter head right in between where my double pedal batters hit. Then added some duct tape to secure the trigger in place. May not be the best choice for a traveling musician but for a hobbyist like myself you can't beat the price.

            Best Triggers I have Owned!

            Comments about Pulse TK-5 Acoustic Trigger 5-Piece Set:

            They're great triggers and very reliable once you get them to stay on. The tape they send with them is worthless. I super glued mine to the heads then put duck tape over them and they've worked like a charm since. Very responsive and won't break easily like most other triggers do.

            Bargain workhorse trigger

            Comments about Pulse TK-5 Acoustic Trigger 5-Piece Set:

            There's nothing fancy about these triggers, but when used correctly they work perfectly fine. You might have to take care with your setup, and tweak your drum module. Once you get it right, they do what they're supposed to at a bargain basement price.

            The Worst Triggers Ever Made

            Comments about Pulse TK-5 Acoustic Trigger 5-Piece Set:

            They simply dont work -plain as that. Dont even think about buying them. I bought two packs of these to trigger my 10 piece tama superstar, and they didnt even trigger... at all. You also have to buy double stick tape for them, and they fall off after you hit the drum. then, if you can finally get the damn things to stick, they don't work. You will get a massive amount of crosstalk, and absolutely no triggering from the drum its supposed to work for! Just go with the high end ddrum triggers instead, they cost more, but they work, and are worth it. You dont want to spend hundreds of dollars on cables, modules, and pa amps just to find out that it is all useless cause your triggers dont work.
