Re: Played with a Throne Butt Kicker for the First Time
Great post Bermuda. Thanks.
Since my last post I found out that the unit I was using had a ddrum trigger routed through an old Simmons drum module running to the ButtKicker.
This set up allows for being able to feel the transducer when playing in smaller rooms where the kit is not mic'd. So in essence it functions more like the more inexpensive throne shakers that are out there.
Since I don't have the monitor requirements that you do and I don't play in larger venues, I don't think I need to go with the higher end models of the ButtKicker.
I think I'm going to look for the Mini Concert model for around $100 bucks and experiment with the trigger/drum module set up. I'll pick up an inexpensive power amp and I can borrow a friends TD7 and see how it works and feels.
I really appreciate the more personal and subtler aspects of your comments. They really helped better understand the benefits, especially since I have only played with a set up like this once.
