  • Jobeky vs. Triggera vs. Gear Drum

    So, i’ve started an A2E conversion on my Gretsch Catalina Ash which has been hiding under a layer of dust for a few years. The eDrumin interface is on its way, I’ve ordered two Drum-Tec design heads for toms and a Real Feel for snare. Up next, triggers..

    I’m not planning on breaking the bank so I’m thinking about dual zone, side mounted internal triggers. Since I’m living in the Netherlands I’d like to buy from European sellers so I’ve made a list of possible options:

    Triggera Intrigg:
    https://triggera.com/intrigg-internal-drum-trigger
    The initial idea was to use these Intrigg triggers which are €39. The seem like a good deal for dual zone triggers. I really like the way they handle the air vent connection. Looks really professional. Unfortunately I stumbled across a forum post from 2017 here on VDrums were someone stated that the Intrigg's don't really trigger nicely with the Real Feel heads so that threw me off a little.

    Jobeky side mount triggers:
    https://jobekydrums.co.uk/product/jo...-side-trigger/
    Price for these triggers are 35.99 which is about €41 but these also need a 3.5mm cable connector which is 10 when buying from them. I've read some great reviews about these but price is the increased price worth it compared to the Intrigg's? And also, to these trigger fine with Real Feel heads?

    Gear Drum SMD:
    https://www.geardrum.it/prodotti_en.html
    I haven't heard a lot about Gear Drum but the products they offer look really nice. I've send them an email for a price indication so I'll have to wait on that. Does anyone has experience with Gear Drum triggers?

    So, long story short. I could use some help deciding on what triggers to buy for my A2E conversion especially in combination with the Drum-Tec Design and Real Feel heads.

    I really like what I’ve seen from Gear Drum (and Drone https://www.facebook.com/DRONE-Trigg...1575733375905/), but I’m not sure what the pricing is as neither of them operate a traditional store front.

    If I had to pick between Jobeky and Triggera, I’d go with Jobeky just due to personal experience. I’ve used their cymbals and triggers and have found both to be solid and well made.

    I use R-Drums triggers in my setup, and the build quality is second to none. That said, it’s a premium product at a premium price point.

      i'd contacted drone triggers asking about buying his hi hat or ride trigger for an L80 a while back. believe he said covid was affecting parts availability and while he replied a bunch of times i never got as far as getting a price or any kind of purchasing terms or anything, just that he had a design that apparently works with the L80 but couldn't produce it right now...

      gear drum also looks good from their videos but again lack of actual storefront and that kind of deters me.

        Thanks for your reply. What heads did you use with the jobeky triggers? And did you use center or side mounted trigger?

          I have a Jobeky bar-trigger and Triggera Intrigg side triggers. I don't like the Jobeky bar-trigger, too much suffering from hot-spotting, So I recommend Triggera triggers, they trigger very well.

            Thanks guys. I’m leaning more towards the Jobeky side mounted triggers for now

              I would think it over again, if I where you. I'm the only one using both and ............
              It's easy to convert the Jobeky bar trigger to a side trigger, I did that, but I still wasn't impressed by the trigger accuracy .

                Isn’t the bar trigger a totally different design in terms of foam layout? Are you using 2 or 3 ply heads?

                  No, the 14" bar trigger uses the same foam layout as their side-triggers. I'm using 2 ply and 3 ply heads as well.

                    Okay, my bad. I’ll guess I can order them from Thomann and see how they work out

                      Good choice. I use Jobeky and love the triggers. I actually started using a side mounted trigger even for my snare and I’m so happy with the results. No hot spotting anymore at all.

                      trigger accuracy is perfect for me too. I’m using them under drumtec real feel mesh heads.

                      I think the price for Jobeky triggers is very reasonable, and although they don’t compare to the build quality of r-drums, they are still built well enough to withstanding constant beatings by wooden sticks.

                        Haha guess I’ll have to flip a coin on this.

                          Used the 4-spoke center mount for a bit in a side snare. Drum-Tec real feel 3-ply mesh head. Hotspot wasn’t an issue for me, but I typically play around the head for PS accents anyway...

                            So, I’ve just pulled the trigger (pun intended). I’ll be ordering a set of Intriggs including the Krigg from Thomann just to see how they work out. If not, I can always return them and go thr Jobeky route.
