I believe the Ddrum trgiggers are compatible with just about anything.

I really don't recomend Ddrum triggers. I have had bad experiences with both the cheap and expensive versions. Spend the extra money and get Rolands.

Any trigger will work with the module, so long as it has the same jack sockets.

And hellfire, I've had a ddrum red shot trigger (because I'm cheap) of a while now and it's been totally reliable, never been set off by another drum or anything like that. So I would say that buying a ddrum trigger is fine to use.

Thanks anyway.

In my experience, the Ddrum triggers are the strongest and most reliable triggers around. They are also incredibly responsive.

The Rolands triggers may be responsive, but I think long term durability could become a problem with them.

What troubles have you had with the Ddrum Pro triggers?

I haven't used the Ddrums, but hear good things about them.

I have used Roland Triggers for several years now (bass, snare, toms) and they've held up just fine. Never had a problem with any of them. I trust them

You have the RT-3's? They are chromed...

The newer Roland triggers, the RT-10's, are black, plastic and are what Thomas Lang uses on his new DVD. These are the ones Im thinking wont hold up oiver time, evn though I have a lot of respect with Roland gear and use it myself.

Its also important to note that the ddrum pro triggers use XLR outputs which are a much more reliable way to go onstage.

I have some of each series, and have used the new ones quite a bit since they came out.
Do you mean that the casing's durability worries you? I haven't hit mine directly, so I guess I can't really say what it would withstand as far as that goes.

^ Yep, the casing is my concern.

The triggering itself is second to none on those triggers. No problems there!
