Better than a Canoli!

I read a review that stated you cannot adjust the sensitivity on the BT-1. However, further from the truth. Using the settings in the Roland TM-2 and I was able to adjust the sensitivity. Regardless, I can put this "cannoli" anywhere on my drum set and it is perfect for triggering any sound I program to it through the TM-2. No longer do I carry tons of extra percussive instruments like tambourines, blocks, bongos, and more. Triggering them from the "Cannoli" (BT-1) is perfect and in reach all the time. Planning on purchasing another soon after Christmas. Only one complaint ... and it is NOT about this product. When are sound engineers going to be less freaked out about electronic drums through the front and monitor system? Do yourself a favor, get yourself a monitor so you can hear the sounds you're triggering with this 'Cannoli" (BT-1). By they way, a Cannoli is a type of Italian pastry.

GREAT addition to my Roland SPD-SX

This has been great to use with our SPD-SX drum pad, making it simple and convenient to mount to a snare hoop and have right in front of you.

Great addition to electronic or acoustic kit.

These are really well built and the flexibility of where you can place them is great. I am really happy with them. I use them primarily with my Roland TD-30.
