A few or our customer's comments ...

January 2018 - Gary Thornberry, Okarche OK - "Marshall, I just had to write to let you know how impressed I am with your triggers. They were super easy to install and set up. I converted an acoustic PDP kit and it looks and sounds incredible. I did have to adjust the SENS a little (in Roland TD-30 module) but WOW ... No double triggering - no issues with latency. Thank you again for creating such a wonderful product." 

September 2017 - Allan Rubin, Vienna VA - "Extreme Drums triggers were easy to install and worked flawlessly from the first day. I've used them with two different modules and had a strong performance with each. Marshall has been responsive to all questions and provides good setup advice. Highly recommended!"

   - OR -


If you want to drill the shells of your drums and install 1/4" jacks, we offer Custom 1/4" through-the-shell Jacks and Cables on our "Order Page".


Custom Built Trigger Kits - Go to "Order Page" to order your triggers


Our new X-1 Single Zone Trigger, with cables, and extra lug screws.  Also includes easy to follow instructions and "Secrets for Using Your Electronic Drums" publication.




For metal shell drums like chrome or brass snare drums choose our X-3 Single Zone Trigger or our X-3/Rim Dual Zone Trigger.





Our new Kick Trigger, with cables, and extra lug screws.  Includes easy to follow instructions and "Secrets for Using Your Electronic Drums" publication.




This is our new X-1/Rim Dual Zone Trigger Kit with Head and Rim sensors. Includes connecting cables, and extra lug screws. Installs in your wood snare drum or toms in about 15 minutes per drum. Includes easy to follow instructions and "Secrets for Using Your Electronic Drums" publication.





* For a chrome or metal snare drum select an X-3/Rim Dual Zone Trigger on the order page.  * Or for a metal piccolo snare choose X-3P/Rim Dual Zone Trigger.

Introducing the X-4 Extendable Trigger. This is one of our newest creations. The X-4 is a single zone trigger that has the ability to adjust the sensor closer to the center of the drum head if you like. It is recommended for all 16" and 18"floor toms,  but can be used on any tom or snare if you wish. The advantage of the X-4 with larger drums like floor toms is that it gives you the ability to move the sensor for more sensitivity if needed on the larger heads. You may not need it though because all our new trigger designs are super sensitive. But if the type of mesh head you choose is less sensitive than some others, an X-4 trigger would give you greater adjustability if needed.  $64.95

And if you want to turn an X-4 into a dual trigger choose the X-4/Rim Trigger kit for $84.50.   

Here is our new super sensitive Rim Trigger. This new trigger is quick and easy to install in minutes. Added to any of our single zone triggers like the X-1 and the X-4, you can turn a single zone trigger into a dual-zone trigger. The Rim Trigger is included with any of our X-1/Rim, X-3/Rim, X-4/Rim, or X-5/Rim Dual Triggers choices. You can easily turn an X-1 Trigger that you previously purchased from us into a dual trigger itself by adding the Rim Trigger to your drum for only ...  $24.95 

Xtreme 1/4" Through-the-shell Custom Jack. 


We also offer a 1/4" jack that you can install yourself in the shell of your drum if you choose. It requires carefully drilling a 1/2" hole through your drum shell to install the jack instead of running our small cable through the vent hole of your drum. 

This gives you a permanent installation in your drum. We provide the 1/4" to 1/4" cable to plug into your drum shell and your drum module.


$8.50 extra per drum

Some drum modules use a multi-cable wiring harness instead of individual cables. A multi-cable combines all the drum cables at the module end into a single plug like or similar to the one at left. Some of those modules are the Roland TD-4, TD-9, TD-11, TD-15, and TD-25. You also find these multi-cables with the Alesis DM6, DM7, and DM8 modules. These multi-cables don't allow you to plug individual cables from your converted drums into your drum module. But we have an easy solution below.

If your module has a multi-cable simply let us know when you order and we will provide you with 1/4" to 1/4" barrel couplers. These couplers will let you connect the cables we include with your trigger order to the multi-cable wiring harness that came with your drum module.

            Convert your drums, old or new ... any size, any brand

Maybe you've tried DIY triggers to convert your drums. If so, you probably found out that building your own triggers successfully requires a lot more than simply putting piezos inside your drums. You can literally spend hundreds of hours experimenting, trying one thing after another, building and rebuilding triggers, trying to find the right mix of components and designs that would give your triggers a great response and great durability ... triggers that won't give out on you when you need them most ... while you are playing your drums. We've sold triggers to frustrated drummers all over the world who finally threw in the towel. They tried ours after spending a lot of wasted hours trying to figure it out themselves. I can't tell you how many times we've heard some of our customers say. "I wish I would have tried Extreme Drums Triggers first."

Some of our customers were previously using a variety of add-on triggers, such as clamp-on triggers, or stick-on triggers, and they weren't getting the results they wanted. Their triggers were not accurately reproducing what they played and their triggers weren't lasting very long. They were very frustrated and tired. Many of them also wanted triggers that mounted inside their drums and out of the way. They were tired of triggers that looked bad and got in the way of their playing. When they tried ours they were instantly satisfied with the results.

Our Triggers are designed by Gary Marshall Rinker ... who goes by his middle name Marshall ... the owner and creator of Extreme Drums. He's been a drummer and percussionist since 1960 and has been building triggers and electronic drums since the late eighties. Marshall has invested thousands of hours perfecting his designs. He has played his converted drum sets in front of live audiences hundreds of times over the last several years. As a perfectionist, he is very picky about the design and performance of his triggers.  The quality, response, and durability of his triggers must work
flawlessly for him first and foremost. If his triggers didn't work to his satisfaction he would not be using them or selling them to anyone else. After all, he was doing this exclusively for himself long before he made it available to the public. When you purchase Extreme Drums Triggers you get the advantage of all his experience as well as the hundreds and hundreds of hours he has spent experimenting with and building his custom-made electronic drum triggers. This saves you the time and trouble of having to figure it out yourself. 


Why spend hundreds of frustrating hours experimenting when you could be playing your converted drums right away with complete satisfaction? PLUS when you purchase Extreme Drums Triggers you will be able to email or call Marshall personally for any questions or concerns you may have, making sure your converted drums will meet or exceed your expectations.  


Now you can have the best of both worlds, beautiful full-size drums, with all the advantages of electronics. You no longer have to sacrifice the great looks and great feel of your acoustic drums
in order to play electronic drums. Welcome back to feel-good drumming!  And welcome back to the Big League ... with full-size e-drums.

For several years Extreme Drums converted complete drum sets for drummers all over the US. Some drummers packed up their drums and shipped them to us for a custom conversion. Still, others bought a new set online and had them shipped directly to us to be converted. We got to see their new drums before they did. We unpacked them, converted and tested them, then repacked and shipped them to their new owners. But with our latest designs, it is so easy to install them yourself.


Remember... when you convert your drums with Extreme Drums Triggers you will not be making any permanent changes to your drums or damaging them in any way.


Along with our triggers, you will also receive easy-to-understand, easy-to-follow instructions with lots of pictures to make it extra easy. These simple instructions will quickly step you through the installation process so you will be playing your converted drums in no time at all.


PLUS ... we will include a several page publication written by Marshall giving you tons of advice and secrets for using your converted drums successfully. These secrets come from lots of the things he
discovered from building and playing electronic drums for almost 30 years. This FREE publication is included with your trigger purchase.
