NAMM 2013: Roland announces the BT-1 bar trigger pad

For acoustic drummers not ready or willing to dive head-on into the world of electronic drums, the BT-1 offers an easy and affordable way to gain access to the many features of digital drums.

Once installed and connected to a sound source (such as the SPD-SX sampling pad), the BT-1 enables you to play with new drum sounds or entire backing tracks. The BT-1 can also be used to add more triggers to an existing V-Drums kit, saving space on the drum rack.

With a curved shape that mounts on the side of an acoustic drum or V-Drums pad, the BT-1 provides a convenient playing surface without the need to reconfigure your existing drum kit layout. The BT-1 is great for playing sounds in a Roland V-Drums module or SPD-series percussion pad, but it can also act as a controller for a variety of functions such as start/stop of backing songs, phrase loops and more.
