Roland BT-1 overview

  • 1Description

The BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad from Roland is a curved electronic drum trigger designed to be incorporated into acoustic and V-Drum kits. It can be used to trigger a V-Drums module or an SPD series percussion pad for a variety of functions including the start/stop of loops and tracks, turning effects on and off, kit selection, and tap tempo functions. The BT-1 can be installed into your existing drum kit through a drum tension rod and the included attachment bolt spacer. It connects to your V-Drum module with the included stereo 1/4" connector. The BT-1 fits around a V-Drum pad or an acoustic drum and is designed to eliminate false triggering while playing the surrounding acoustic or electronic drums.

Additional Triggering for V-Drums Kits
The compact BT-1 allows you to incorporate additional triggers into your V-Drum kit without having to add more pads. This gives you access to additional sounds, as well as convenient control of a range of performance features in your V-Drums module or SPD-series percussion pad. You can add additional BT-1s as needed to continuously expand the expressive power of your percussion rig
Incorporate Electronics with Acoustic Drums
The BT-1 also allows you to integrate electronics with your acoustic kit. Unlike large round pads and foot switches, the BT-1 blends with your kit without you having to adjust your setup or playing style. Plug the BT-1 into a trigger input on a V-Drums module or SPD-series percussion pad to access electronic sounds

    Roland BT-1 reviews

    BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great portable addition to a hybrid drum set! I like it! I have an acoustic drum set but have wanted additional sounds without hauling additional devices around. I have a cowbell. I want a deeper one as well. I want occasional roto toms, Timbales, electronic toms, chime tree, gong, even bass drum with my hand. I got a footboard pad as well and can play any sound with my module with my left foot, especially snare drum or cowbell. I've just discovered many new possibilities! The BT1 is a perfect size with many mounting possibilities. Since I move it from two drum sets and my practice set, I decided to mount it on a separate stand and it stays in front of my snare drum. It's out of the way unless I want to play it with either hand. So far it seems to be a durable piece of equipment. It's a basic plug it in to a sound module and play it. There are a couple set up adjustments for sound level and sensitivity. I wasn't getting every beat I played on it. But then I got the bright idea to reread setup and found in my module settings a specific BT1 input for sound pad. That put sensitivity and other levels perfect and now I love it! I definitely recommend it!
