Default Bass Drum Trigger?

which triggers do you guys recommend for the bass drum? I'm looking for something that sensitive enough to pick up every note, but not so sensitive that it'll pick up everything else around it.

I'd suggest anything from dw. Don't get red hots or red dots or whatever. Those aren't very sensitive, but the frequency range is high enough to pick up everything you're playing. It's lose lose.

The Ddrum Pro triggers seem to be the most popular at the moment.
The Redshots aren't really that different, the Pro triggers just have a little more solid housing and an XLR connector.
I use the Roland triggers, very happy with them; haven't had any troubles.

the sensitivity is determined by the module parameters, not the trigger.
You'll have to dial it in on whatever module you're using.

I'd go with a ddrum Pro (the XLR type) or Roland RT kick trigger.
