What some of our customers have said:

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!"

 

February 2016 - Danny Kirsch “ Marshall your triggers have changed my life. I thought my acoustic Pearl Masters kit sounded great until I tried Extreme Drum Triggers (and drum samples in my computer). The triggers are simple and quick to install and the sensitivity and accuracy of them are second to none. I still get the feel and look of the Pearl Masters kit but with the flexibility of being able to trigger any sound.

I am a producer based in London and use the triggers in the studio only. Mixing and control of volume, EQ, and compression of the individual drum sounds is now far easier than trying to get a decent sound out of an acoustic kit. I can easily edit the MIDI signals and my drum tracks sound fat. I use acoustic cymbals the traditional way with overhead mics and mix them with the kick, snare and tom samples for a 100% realistic sound. This hybrid approach is perfect for me as a busy producer who needs awesome results fast.

Finally Marshall I want to say that your after sales service is out of this world. I had some queries about my drum module and you talked to me from the States several times to help me out, even on Sunday. You didn’t stop assisting and helping me until I had everything 100% sorted out which I now do and I could not be happier.

Thank you for an amazing product (the best of it’s kind) and for being such a decent human being.

September 2015 - Jeff Emerson  "Extreme Drums’ custom-made triggers has transformed my five piece acoustic Pearl kit into a dynamic one for less money than some of the so-called leading trigger systems on the market today,” says Jeff Emerson, drummer for Louisville, Ky.-based M80s — a 1980’s pop/rock cover band.
 
“Marshall, owner of Extreme Drums, is simply wonderful to speak to. I’ve contacted him several times, and he immediately answers the phone and always fields my questions. He is so customer-centric and goes the extra mile to provide recommendations,” Jeff said.
 
Recently, the M80s performed a pre-game concert at Slugger Field.  “I had some people comment on how full the drums sounded with the instruments, unlike a normal kit that is miked through the board,” added Jeff.

August 2015  I bought the Alesis Trigger IO (used) and still haven’t read the manual. I turned it on and I’m using the default setting that the previous owner had. I still haven’t read your thicker manual that offers pointers… and I’m having a blast playing “some kit” setting in Logic X.  Thanks for the advice on cymbals. I bought 3 used CY-8’s for crashes and ride and a used CY-5 with pedal for HH and they work fine. I’m an audio guy but once I pick up my midi skills I’ll try recording with these. Lastly, my wife is one happy lady.

I have to share with you that I have no idea why every drummer isn’t storming in this direction. An Acoustic drum kit is beautiful and so is an acoustic guitar BUT you can’t play most of Floyd, Clapton, Hendrix, BB with an acoustic guitar. Same applies to drums and it’s way cost effective and easier to get the desired sound this way than to screw around with audio techniques. Audio takes a lifetime to master and the only guys that are good at it are the ones who do it full time for 30 years. I’m beyond sold. I’m hooked.   George Missios, Ashburn, VA

July 2015 - Hey Marshall – I have the drums sounding great now! I tried changing the reverb setting, but that didn’t help. I decided to do a factory reset and after that I noticed that I could hear the snare ghost notes fine. I then made the system adjustments in your instructions, but I gradually increased the xtalk cancel setting until I noticed the issue. 20 is the magic number for that on the snare…anything over that and the problem occurs. All the other toms and kick worked fine at 80. 
 
Thanks a lot for being so responsive in helping me troubleshoot the issue. I also really appreciate you including all the instructions and set up tips. I used all the tips, including the rubber fuel hose around the rims, which I purchased from Auto Zone. I am so happy that I chose your triggers! Thanks again!
 
I’ve attached a picture of my drums if you are interested. Feel free to post that on your website or any of my comments.  Jeff Bayless, Savoy, IL

November 2014 - " I have been using your triggers for about 2 years now and I just wanted to let you know you have an amazing product. I love the fact you get the trigger response and sound of an electronic drumset but the look of an acoustic. Please don't ever stop making this product because I will be a lifetime customer." Taurean Kugler, Alberta Canada

 

November 2014 - " I'm having a good time with your triggers, I set them up and plugged into my Alesis I/O Box and tested with Addictive Drums and with EZ Drums and the response of the triggers it's amazing. Thanks for your products." Omar Parrilla Alejandro, Texas

 

April 2014 - Installed (X-2) trigger last night and it’s 2-fold better than any other trigger I’ve used thru life playing drums. The snap and pop is there with your triggers and it goes back to the ol’ saying; you get what you pay for. Thanks for putting out an excellent product and I’m sure I will be ordering more. Best Regards, Jack Tedesco,  Lewisville Texas

 

February 2014 - I installed my triggers as soon as I got them because I was so keen to hear what they sounded like and they sound great. No cross talk or double triggering and they are really sensitive which is good for me because I play a lot of ghost notes. Thank you for your good customer service, reliability and kindness.  

Adrian Smith, New South Wales, Australia

 

October 2013 - Hi Marshall just wanted to let you know that the triggers arrived in Scotland safely.  I have fitted them with no problem and my Premier Kit looks and sounds fantastic!  These triggers are amazing and so simple to install.  The cross stick action is better than my original Roland TD 12 setup.  Everything about Extreme Drums has been a great experience
from start to finish - keep up the good work.
 Your number 1 fan in the UK, Gavin Edgar, Dungigin Scotland

Digital Drummer Magazinean online e-drum magazine, tested several commercial drum triggers that are available for drummers to use to convert their acoustic drums. In the February 2012 issue of  Digital Drummer Magazine they published their review of our X-2 Dual Trigger that they installed in a 14” snare drum with a mesh head on top. Here are excerpts from that article:

“Extremely easy … the EDT (Extreme Drums Trigger) kit is among the quickest and easiest of all the DIY kits to install. It is totally reversible, with no damage to the shell.”

“Installation is very easy … with clear instructions and comprehensive documentation covering everything from trigger settings for a range of 
modules,
 to tips on making your own rim silencers.  Of all the kits out there, this one takes the prize for information provision.”

“Triggering was excellent from the outside of the head to the center. There was good dynamic range and responsiveness.” 

 

“The warranty (5-year) is class leading.”

“In summary, the system provides an 
easy affordable and effective conversion of acoustic drums into electronic.” www.digitaldrummermag.com

 

 

 

April 2012 - I decided to try my Hart snare again. What a mistake. I had forgotten as the night progresses the sweet spot on the snare gets smaller and smaller. I have sent the drum to hart but they found nothing wrong. Never had that problem with your triggers! I'm going back to my Pearl snare with your triggers for good! I wish I had the $3500 back I spent for those Hart drums! You have a superior product that works flawlessly and costs far less. Your customer service has been outstanding as well. Thank you for everything! Ben Hahaj,  SouthBend, Indiana

 

March 2012 - Hi mate. Triggers are all installed and working a treat! I was using DDrum triggers, swapped them for yours and all my aggravation with trigger performance is gone. Cheers, David Halling, Australia
 

 

March 2012 - Marshall, Just wanted to thank you for these great triggers. They work perfectly with just a bit of tweaking on my Alesis Trigger I/O. I’m using them with the Pearl mesh heads you recommended on my Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute kit, firing samples in Reason. I’m chatting them up to all my drummer buddies. Let the sessions begin!  Thanks, Brian James, Oregon

 

January 2012 - "I'm having a great time with the triggers and my wife is loving the new quiet sound of my mesh heads! The triggers showed up in the mail very quickly and were super easy to install. I love the fact that I can drop my acoustic heads back on any time, it's the best of both worlds!" Paul Telford, California

 

March 2011 - "The triggers are excellent quality and are exactly as you have them advertised. I must say I am very impressed." Jay Falcon, Canada

 

February 2011 - "Had my first gig with the new drum setup last night. It was great. Everything worked flawlessly. So much more fun than playing the Hart drums. Everyone was blown away. Thank you for a great product.  Ben Hahaj, SouthBend, Indiana
