    How well do they work/trigger on acoustic heads (especially bass and snare)

    Red Shots by far! But I would step up and get these:

    they have the same exact piezo as the redshot, but the housing is very tough and you don't have to mess with any of the tension rods, they just clamp on the side of the rim.

      They work great. The only issue, which happens to me, is that after hitting a while, the tension rod on the trigger gets kinda loose.

      Jrummer, does this happens too on the DDrums? How exatly do they attach? Any close up pic?

        Also, how do you connect the XLR outputs on the moddule? Do you use some kind of adapter?

          The ddrum pro triggers attach to the rim with a tension rod, similar to the ones in the link you posted. Mine have been on my converted e-drums for 2 years and I have never had to adjust them.

          For all the mono triggers (kick and toms) you just use an XLR to 1/4" mono cable. The snare has a special cable for the ddrum module that breaks out to 2 1/4" mono ends, one for the head, and one for the rim. You would have to look into what cable to use on the snare trigger for a Roland module.

            A center piezo with cone seems like a more logical approach since you'd want the strongest trigger area in the center of the drum.

              Thanks Jrummer,
              I guess the ddrums are more stable than the Pintechs.

                Sure, but the ddrum triggers were designed for acoustic drums. Lots of people use them live to blend in with mics, so they don't want to dampen the acoustic sound of their drums. So, edge mount makes sense.

                I used them on acoustic drums, and when I converted my old acoustic kit to an ekit, I decided to use what I had. They work great on the rim of the drum, even with the mesh heads, and you don't really get the hot spots that a lot of people get with the center mounted piezos.
