Roland TM-1 Trigger Module

Roland TM-1

Roland TM-1 Trigger Module is a portable, lightweight trigger module that makes it easy to add more sounds to your acoustic drum kit. It can be used to add an onboard kick, snare, tom, cymbal, and percussion samples to your own samples and loops during the live stage, theater, or studio performances. In addition, the TM-1 allows you to connect any compatible Roland trigger pad (sold separately) and directly play the sounds you need or mount an RT-series trigger to one of your acoustic drums and play with your preferred sample layered on top in perfect sync, with no lag at all.
