NAMM 2013: Roland Annouces the BT-1 Trigger Pad for acoustic drum kits and V-Drums kits

The Roland BT-1 Bar Drum Trigger for Acoustic Kits and V-Drums Kits at NAMM 2013
Roland's New BT-1 Bar Drum Trigger Launched at NAMM 2013
Roland announce the launch of the BT-1 a Bar Trigger Pad that offers affordable and trouble free access to the use of electronics with Acoustic kits as well as being a space saving addition to V-Drums kits, giving you more triggers without the hassle.

Once installed and connected to a sound source (such as the SPD-SX sampling pad), the BT-1 will enable drummers to play with new drum sounds or entire backing tracks, all from behind your trusty acoustic drum kit, or V-Drums Electronic Kit.

For acoustic kit owners, the Roland BT-1 bar trigger pad will offer a simple and affordable introduction to using electronics without jumping headfirst into the world of electronic drum kits.

With a curved shape that mounts on the side of most acoustic drums or V-Drums pads, the BT-1 will provide a convenient playing surface without the need to reconfigure your existing drum kit layout. The BT-1's superior sensors are tuned to eliminate crosstalk when playing surrounding drums - so it promises, you'll only hear it when you hit it.
