  • Too late for triggers?

    So I have a gig in exactly a week. I want to put triggers on my bass drum, and the rest of my band desperately does as well, however I have reservations about doing it so close to a gig. I have never used them before, and I will be running it through a roland td-10 brain. Question is, is it a bad idea to do it now for the gig, or is it a pretty simple process? (Guitarist says theres nothing to it, and we should get it done, but then again, he is the guitarist) Also, heard good things about roland's latest trigger..at least for the bass drum....Any rec's on a good trigger?

    If you're going to also use the regular mic setup, what could it hurt? Does your band have someone running the sound desk or do you mange it from stage?

          I donít know from personal experience but most say Ddrum triggers attach and function with no problems. They just attach to the rim though a one of the tension screws. And can be used with acoustic or mesh heads

            First time, I'd use a Roland sensor with a Roland module. Does the TD-10 have trigger settings for acoustic drums? I don't know.

              Yes, it has KIK (and SNR, TOM, FLR) settings for acoustic triggers.

                I'd do it. If it doesn't sound the way you want the sound tech can just pot it down. Provided you have the time, you might want to set it up at home first and test the trigger settings and EQ using some sort of PA speaker (as opposed to headphones) before hand.
