I’m looking for a much cheapness trigger pad to use to start backing tracks and maybe occasionally trigger a sound on my TM-2. But I don’t want to pay £89 for a BT-1 (far too much for what you get). I don’t need sensitivity, just something to hit.
I’m looking at the Millenium MPS-600 9″ pad for £30. Anybody got any comments or alternatives?SoporifParticipant11th July 2017 at 9:37 amPost count: 7
If it really is just something to hit and you have the means to mount it then there are various Roland or Ion pads on Ebay for £12 and upwards posted. There’s an LP Spike as well which is closer in concept to the BT-1 – http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/L-P-Spike-Electronic-Trigger-Pad-/252524207516?hash=item3acb9d9d9c:g:pdgAAOSwknJXyuqs . Oh and a Pintech one too.Kevin MooneyParticipant11th July 2017 at 10:10 amPost count: 40
I’ve done the second hand thing before, and it’s hit and miss. I’ve had a few pads that have clearly been sold on as the piezo is dying. I can replace them, but I’d rather have something that won’t quit mid-gig.Hector1Participant11th July 2017 at 11:36 amPost count: 257
Well the original Koby Nano pads from years ago were always reliable-if they are still around on eBay or otherwise, never really had any triggering issues with second hand Roland pads I have 3 PD8 and they all work on my Nord Drum 1 module just fine and paid about £60 for the 3 as a bundle on eBay a while ago. Also have some of the older Alesis triangle single zone pads and they are pretty bomb proof-but bear in mind that they are still electronic pads. What I mean is if your an acoustic player who tend to play there drums in quite a dynamic way due to other band noise etc then there not really going to take that kind of thrash or heavy strikes to kindly a lot of the time.
The millennium pads I have never really considered and appreciate the BT1 is a tad spicy on the price for what it is should be more like £40 rather than £70 to be fair as the TM-2 is probably not much more than that used or a new one around the £130 mark.Kevin MooneyParticipant12th July 2017 at 10:01 pmPost count: 40
Bugrit. Bought a PD8 for £7.50 on Fleabay. Worth a punt!
