Today's best customer comment:
July 2021 - Colin Smith, Northern Ireland I've just installed the 3 tom triggers, all I can say is 'WOW' unbelievable. They took about 15 minutes or so for each one to fit ie stripping the heads off etc. Got the heights correct straight away and the response is beyond incredible. I did not have to tweak the pearl mimic pro just plugged in and instant responsive drums!! I have tried most of the major brands and I can honestly say these have blown the others out of the water!! I've just got to road test them but instinctively know they will stand up just because of the robust construction. I will certainly be shouting Extreme Drums every opportunity I get.
July 2021 - Jeff Helmlinger, New Jersey, -  Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for everything! Just got everything set up and dialed in and WOW! Your triggers are just awesome. Better than anything I have ever owned and I have tried a lot!  Your customer service rocks too and I will let people know just how good of a product Extreme Drums delivers and what a good dude Marshall Rinker is!
May 2021 - Mark LaTour, Ville Platte, LA - Marshall, I received my triggers today, and let me tell you something ... I've never seen or laid my hands on a drum trigger, ever. But despite being completely blind, I was able to sort out my packaging and install my triggers effortlessly. They work great! I'm going to order the kick and floor tom triggers next, so then I'll have a completely electrified acoustic kit.
April 2021  Marshall, I just wanted to say that I love the X-MR trigger that I just added to my 1980’s vintage Pearl Export snare drum. Currently using at church with a TD-9 kit where I switched out the PDX-8 snare pad with my converted snare. With Drum-TEC heads the snare is so responsive, I can’t believe I didn’t do this years ago! Looking forward to converting the balance of my Pearl Export kit and using it at church! David Rice, Main,

I had a center cone trigger on the snare but was getting a lot of weird ghost triggering. I tried dampening, changing the mesh head tightness, etc. but nothing worked. I switched to one of your triggers and voila, problem solved! Plus your rim trigger works much better.Chris Schondel, Ewing, NJ, December 2020

Hey Marshall, Just got the triggers all hooked up and dialed in. I have to say, these things are AMAZING! Every little hit on the snare gets picked up. Same for the bass drum. They’re super dynamic and I could not be happier with them. Keep doing what you do man! You make an EXCELLENT product. Garrick Badour, Michigan, May 20, 2020 

Here is an awesome snare drum, owned and built by Jeff Lane from Cypress Texas. Jeff calls it his R2 snare and he installed one of our X-1R dual-zone triggers in it and our custom through-the-shell 1/4" jack.

Just wanted to say thanks for the triggers. They work great and am very happy with their performance.  James Moats, Texas, March 21, 2020

Through-the-shell Custom 1/4" Jack and cables.

This custom jack gives you a permanent installation in your drum for customers who want this option. We also provide a 10-foot 1/4" to 1/4" cable to plug into both your drum shell and your drum module.


                Only ... $8.50 extra per drum

Many drum modules use a multi-cable wire harness instead of individual cables, also known as a cable-harness, or cable-snake. Multi-cables combine all the drum cables at the module into a single plug similar to the one at left. Roland TD-4, TD-9, TD-11, TD-15, and TD-25 modules have them.  Alesis, ATV, Kat, and Simmons modules have them too. Multi-cables don't allow you to plug individual cables from your converted drums into your drum module. But we have an easy solution shown below.

If your module has a multi-cable just let us know when you order what drum module you will be using, 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 triggers to the multi-cable wiring harness that came with your drum module.

We accept payments through Pay Pal and Money Orders - United States funds only.

Safely and securely order from our "Order Page" with your credit card, debit card, or bank account, even if you don't have a Pay Pal account.

            Convert any 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.
