drum-tec groovedot - THE rim trigger for your hybrid drum kit.

The groovedot is the first fully isolated rim trigger with mechanically separated head and rim section. With the groovedot your drum kit becomes an E-Drum. You dont need a new kit. You can expand your favorite acoustic drum kit with the unlimited options of an E-Drum in just a few simple steps.
You can then play it as an E-Drum, as a hybrid drum set, or continue to play it acoustically at any time without removing the groovedot triggers. Use groovedots for your snare drum, your bass drum and in your rack toms and floor toms. The groovedot Dual Zone electronically transmits one edge trigger and one head trigger signal. The groovedot Single Zone is perfect for your bass drum as a single trigger with head signal detection only. A drum module can reproduce your individual performance from these signals in a lively and natural way.
The appearance of your set remains the same. A groovedot is invisible from the outside. Take your sound to a new dimension - its never been easier!
