A Drumming Experience Unlike Any Other

For a whole new kind of drumming experience, try a Porter & Davies BC Gigster drum throne. When you're performing and you can't hear yourself, you play harder, lose dynamics, have trouble staying in the pocket, and get exhausted. That's why Sweetwater enthusiastically recommends the BC Gigster. When you sit on this innovative drum throne, its built-in amplified Tactile Generator Monitor System uses conduction to transmit the sound to your inner ear through your bones, so you feel it in your whole body. Butt-kicking triggers and thumping subs can't give you a visceral experience like this. And if you play electronic drums, the BC Gigster will add an astonishing sense of realism to your performance. The Porter & Davies BC Gigster drum throne is a must-have addition to your kit!

Porter & Davies BC Gigster Drum Throne at a Glance:
  • Tactile Generator Monitor System lets you feel and hear your drums
  • Improves your feel and dynamics by lowering stage volume
  • Integrates with your sound system to maximize your experience
Tactile Generator Monitor System lets you feel and hear your drums

Although most of the sound we hear reaches our ears via airborne vibrations, we also perceive acoustic energy (especially low frequencies) through bone conduction. Utilizing this principle, the Porter & Davies BC Gigster drum throne transmits your drum sounds to your inner ear through your pelvis, spine, and skull, letting you feel and hear their tone, intricacies, and impact internally. This isn't like the feeling you get when vibrations hit your skin (like from a large subwoofer). That's external. This actually happens inside of your body, for an immersive, visceral experience unlike anything you've ever felt before. In fact, the BC Gigster is so sensitive, you'll even be able to feel ghosted double-stroke snare rolls!

Improves your feel and dynamics by lowering stage volume

Rather than forcing you to rely on wedges or subs that operate at dangerously loud volumes, the Porter & Davies BC Gigster drum throne lets you hear and feel the placement and balance of every drum stroke; improving your feel and dynamics, all while letting you monitor at a safe volume or with in-ear monitors (or no monitors). Even in situations when you need to play quietly, the BC Gigster gives you a feeling of security, keeps you in the pocket, and gives you the confidence you need to dig in without holding back. And because this happens inside of your body, nobody else can hear it, making the BC Gigster suitable for both loud and quiet stages, as well as in the studio. On top of that, the BC Gigster is a must-have add-on for electronic drums, alleviating that "disconnected" feeling and providing you with a whole new level of realistic playability.

Integrates with your sound system to maximize your experience

The Porter & Davies BC Gigster drum throne is a two-unit system consisting of the "Engine," a unit that contains an amp, preamp, inputs, outputs, protection circuitry, and volume and tone controls; and the throne top. Setup is a breeze - you simply set up the throne, put a mic in your kick drum, connect the mic to the BC Gigster, connect the supplied Speakon cable, then turn the BC Gigster on. Or better yet, feed other sounds such as toms, overhead mics (for a full kit "picture"), and bass guitar into the BC Gigster's line input. There's also a mic output that can send your kick drum's signal to a mixing desk while leaving it completely unaffected by the BC Gigster's controls.

Porter & Davies BC Gigster Drum Throne Features:
  • Tactile Generator Monitor System lets you feel and hear your drums
  • Lets you decrease stage volume levels to clean up the sound and preserve your hearing
  • Use with electronic drums to alleviate that "disconnected" feeling
  • Add weight and nuance to your performance in the studio
  • Combined XLR/1/4" mic/line input socket
  • Mic output for connection to a mixing desk
  • Sturdy NL4 Speakon connection from "Engine" to throne
Enjoy every nuance of your playing with the Porter & Davies BC Gigster drum throne!
