OVERVIEW

A compact and reliable single-trigger pad that easily mounts to a drum tension rod or other rod-type mounts.

The compact and affordable BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad by Roland 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 new possibilities that Roland electronic percussion brings.

FEATURES
  • Compact and reliable single-trigger pad
  • Curved shape for mounting on a V-Pad or acoustic drum
  • Quick and easy mounting through a drum tension rod; attachment parts for standard rod-type mounts included
  • Internal design eliminates false triggering while playing surrounding drums and/or pads
  • Use with a V-Drums module or SPD-series percussion pad to trigger sounds and control functions such as start/stop of backing songs and phrase loops, effects on/off, kit selection, tap tempo, and more

Mounted on Roland snare

      Comments about Roland BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad:

      One of my biggest complaints about the V-Drums is the side stick sounds from the snare. If you hit it too hard, you get a rim shot, if you hit it too lightly you might get a side stick or a quiet rim...too much guess work. The BT-1 Trigger bar solves all my complaints. It mounted right on the side of the v-drum snare very quickly and easily. I programmed it easy enough (without digging out the owners manual), and had a real nice, consistent side stick any time I needed it. What a great addition to an already great set. By the way, I used (the included) stereo cable and simply programmed both head shot, and rim shot to the same side stick name, so if I hit it soft or hard I get the same sample, just different volumes. That can be programmed by turning off the head/rim temporarily, setting the desired samples separately, then turning the head/rim back on. Easy enough...

          I bought this to add a percussion instrument to my Roland set and I have been impressed by this little bar. It's tough, it's functional, it feels good and the sensitivity of the pad is great. A good purchase. Just remember to NOT use a stereo cable, and program it as a rim sound not head sound....or just read the directions:)

              Comments about Roland BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad:

              I mounted this to the rack and assigned it as a cowbell. It was simple to do, and now I can place it where I want, and don't have to use a rim. I like the response, and will likely get a few more. Good value for the price.
