  • Roland RT triggers for a-to-e conversion

    Has anybody used the Roland RT triggers to convert an full 5 piece acoustic kit to an e-kit?

    What are pros and cons? Ok, I understand I will not have positional sensing on snare. What else?

    I have a TD-25 module and the roland cymbals, and I just bought a Gretsch Catalina Club kit, that I would love to be able to use it in my flat as well. Planning to buy the RT triggers, both side mesh heads (either Roland or drum-tec), and the rim noise eliminator rubber.

    Thanks,
    Adrian

    Hi!

    I have the RT-10S (now replaced by RT-30 series) on a small Sonor Safari kit with Remo Silent Stroke meshheads. I am using the dual S model for snare and Toms and the K model for the kick.

    I think it triggers very well...

    i have also another Sonor Force Kit kit with Quartz triggers, Drum-etc 3 ply mesh heads & rim silencers...but I still think my small kit at home with RT-10 triggers performs very good!

    Best regards

      I've also had good results with the RT-10S and Silent Stroke mesh head on my acoustic snare. However, I don't think this combination is as responsive as a dedicated Roland snare pad, especially when doing press rolls. It does a pretty good job isolating the head and rim so you can get separate snare head and side stick sounds. I don't have any experience with Roland triggers on my toms or bass drum.

        I started using RT10's and K on my toms and kick as a temporary solution till I did something more permanent when I converted my small breakbeats kit. They work so well that Im in absolutely no rush to spend anymore money. I could never get the RT10 working for my snare to the level I expect. It misses the slightest ghost notes. Enough that I couldn't make it work for me. But the toms and kick are awesome. I got all the RT's used off eBay for no more than $25 each.

            Looks very good, thanks!

            Did you had to cut the rim silencer rubber? Or were you able to fit the Roland RTs over the rubber?
