Your electronic drum kit looks great and sounds great, but like any good drummer, now you're looking for more! With additional trigger pads you can bring even more sounds and styles to your electronic kit repertoire. Trigger pads can add amazing versatility to your sound. Think of the legendary Bobby Z's drums on the recording of Prince's Purple Rain, achieved in part by the use of a trigger pad attached to his snare drum. Whether you're going entirely electric, or mixing and matching components for a truly unique sound, there are plenty of trigger pad options for you. One of the great benefits of drum trigger pads is the amount of space they save in your practice area or on the stage. A trigger provides the same great sound of your favorite drum, or cymbal, while taking up a fraction of the space the real thing would. When searching for new trigger pads, the first question you have to ask yourself is "what kind of sound are you looking for?" Different triggers will offer different results. Are you after a new bass drum sound? If so, a Roland KD85 Kick Trigger would be worth checking out, whereas if you're looking for a new cymbal to up the tempo, a Yamaha PCY155-3 could be right for you. If you're looking for something that's a lot more portable, but still provides the power of a full sized electronic drum kit, a drum synthesizer like the Nord Drum 2 or the ddrum DD1 can provide you with a seemingly endless array of possibilities. Customize your tone to make it warm and deep, bright and punchy, or anything in between. You'll get the dynamic response you've come to expect from your kit, with sounds produced in real-time that allow for constant sonic exploration. As technology advances we're able to explore musical avenues never before thought possible. With a variety of drum triggers attached to your kit, you can save space while taking your distinct style to the next level.
