  • A2E conversion for a church

    My church is looking to convert our acoustic kit to an electric and finally ditch that hideous plexi glass cage. So far I'm looking at Drum-Tec "real feel" mesh heads, a Pearl Mimic Pro module and Roland CY electronic cymbals.

    The main thing I'm wondering about at this point is triggers. I know of the Roland and ddrum units. I've also read about internal crossbar triggers and Triggera stuff. I'd like something that has good reliable triggering, but doesn't involve too much drilling into the drum shells.

    Drum-Tec

    love mine. Worthwhile investment for quality, reliable triggers. Zero problems and awesome response.

    Edit add: Pointing to wrong company for triggers... see below

      Since we have members from all over the world it helps if you mention at least what country you are in. That helps people with recommendations .... J

          I see a few different brands listed on the site, which ones did you get? ddt? tdrum?

            OHMYGAWD... So sorry... I misspoke about the info. My apologies for any confusion...

            I used Drum-tec for the Mesh Heads. I got the 2 ply Design series.

            I purchased my Triggers from R-Drum and got the RTB bars for the toms and Kick. And the RTS II for the snare.

            Opinion didn't change. Love the triggers.

              love the drum-tec real feel heads, most trigger setups mount on the drum lug screws. the only drilling you may need to do is for the output jack. i removed the vent hole grommet and had to drill the hole a bit bigger to fit the jack. Jman offers tried and trued internal side mount triggers which works great for the mimic pro with great customer service

                I used Jobeky drums side triggers and their 3 ply mesh heads for mine. The heads feel great and triggering is accurate. No drilling required either, just unscrew a lug screw and slip the trigger in through the gap on the inside of the shell.
