With their superb tracking ability, Ddrum Triggers set a standard for triggering microphones. The Ddrum Acoustic Pro Tom Tom Drum Trigger requres no adhesives, the Ddrum triggers clamp onto the sides of standard drumhoops while the specially designed transducer is softly pressed against the drumhead. The advantages are obvious: You can change drum heads over and over without damaging the transducer. The metal casing protects the trigger from accidental drumhits. The ultra-light pressure of the transducer against the head prevents any damping effect. The XLR output ensures a reliable connection.

Problems with Inferior Triggers
Drum sensors consisting of piezo elements applied to the head of an acoustic drum have not been perceived as giving a "natural response". After analyzing the wave form patterns from acoustic drums, Ddrum has created a patented transducer solution using vectored amplitude measurements (VAM) . Other problems include double triggering (you strike the drum once and you hear additional unwanted strikes) and crosstalk (you strike Tom 1 and Tom 2 plays too).
Two other common problems with conventional triggers are: durability (when you hit them accidentally they can break) and unreliable mounting methods. Triggers mounted using adhesives can accidentally separate from the drumhead.
Three types of triggers
The Ddrum Triggers come in three different models and fit standard drum rim/hoops: Tom Tom, Kickdrum and a special ddrum Trigger for the Snare, with a separate sensor for the Rim. Note: The snare trigger can also be used on tom toms.
