IMPORTANT NOTES

CAUTION

Keep small items out of the reach of children

To prevent accidental ingestion of the parts listed below, always keep them out of the reach of small children.

• Included Parts

Bolts, Spacers (p. 4)

IMPORTANT NOTES

Placement

• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near devices that radiate heat, leave it inside an enclosed vehicle, or otherwise subject it to temperature extremes. Excessive heat can deform or discolor the unit.

• When moved from one location to another where the temperature and/or humidity is very different, water droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit.

Damage or malfunction may result if you attempt to use the unit in this condition. Therefore, before using the unit, you must allow it to stand for several hours, until the condensation has completely evaporated.

• Do not allow rubber, vinyl, or similar materials to remain on this unit for long periods of time. Such objects can discolor or otherwise harmfully affect the finish.

Maintenance

• For everyday cleaning wipe the unit with a soft, dry cloth or one that has been slightly dampened with water. To remove stubborn dirt, use a cloth impregnated with a mild, non-abrasive detergent.

Afterwards, be sure to wipe the unit thoroughly with a soft, dry cloth.

• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any kind, to avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.

Additional Precautions

• Use a reasonable amount of care when using its output jack. Rough handling can lead to malfunctions.

• When disconnecting all cables, grasp the connector itself—never pull on the cable. This way you will avoid causing shorts, or damage to the cable’s internal elements.

• This instrument is designed to minimize the extraneous sounds produced when it’s played.

However, since sound vibrations can be transmitted through floors and walls to a greater degree than expected, take care not to allow these sounds to become a nuisance others nearby.

• The rubber portion of the striking surface is treated with a preservative to maintain its performance.

With the passage of time, this preservative may appear on the surface as a white stain, or reveal how the pads were struck during product testing. This does not affect the performance or functionality of the product, and you may continue using it with confidence.

• Continuous playing may cause dis-coloration of the pad, but this will not affect the Pad’s function.

About the spacer

When shipped from the factory, the spacer (S) is installed and you can use the BT-1 as it is. When attaching the BT-1 to the hoop of the PDX-100 or

PD-85, replace the spacer (S) with the spacer (L).

Settings

The BT-1 can be attached to the hoop (tuning bolt) of a V-Drums mesh pad or your acoustic snare or tom.

By using the included attachment, you can also attach it to a commercially-available stand (rod type mount) or to the pad mount of a V-Drums stand.

Attaching the BT-1 to a Drum Hoop

NOTE

When the BT-1 is attached on the hoop of an acoustic drum or V-Drums pad, striking the

BT-1 will cause the drum it is mounted on to sound. If this presents a problem, the BT-1 can

be mounted on a stand (p. 6).

* Depending on the shape of the hoop, it might not be possible to attach the BT-1 correctly (p. 12).

* The BT-1 cannot be attached to the hoop of a bass drum.

* The BT-1 cannot be attached to the PDX-8 or PDX-6.

* In order to attach the BT-1 to a PDX-100 or PD-85, you must first install the spacer (L).

3.

Attach the tuning bolt.

1.

Remove the tuning bolt from the location where you want to attach the

BT-1.

* If the head is strongly tensioned, slightly loosen the entire head before you proceed.

Attaching the BT-1 to a Stand

In order to attach the BT-1 to a stand (rod type mount), you must first install the included attachment on the BT-1.

Installing the attachment

1.

Install the attachment on the BT-1 as shown in the illustration.

Use the included attachment bolts to fasten the attachment securely.

* Remove the spacer.

* Use your own drum key to tighten the bolts.

Attaching the BT-1 to a stand

1.

Attach the BT-1 to the rod of the stand, and tighten the stand attachment bolt.

* When attaching the BT-1 to the stand, be sure to tighten the stand attachment bolt securely. If any of them remain loose, the pad could fall off.

MEMO

When attaching the BT-1 to a commercially available rod type mount, check the dimensions of the rod. Depending on the dimensions of the rod, it may not be possible to attach the pad to the rod.

Acceptable rod diameters: 8.0–12.5 mm (3/8–1/2 inch)

Settings

Connecting to a Drum Sound Module

Use the included cable to connect the BT-1 to your drum sound module.

* To prevent malfunction and equipment failure, always turn down the volume, and turn off all the units before making any connections.

1.

Use the included cable to connect the BT-1’s output jack to a trigger input of your drum sound module.

* You must use a stereo cable. Operation will not be correct if any other cable is used.

* When connecting the BT-1 to a TD-15, TD-11, TD-9, or TD-4, you can also use the cable included with the drum sound module.

Connect the L-shaped plug to the BT-1.

Connection cable (included)

Drum sound module

2.

Make the trigger parameter settings for the drum sound module.

For details on parameter values recommended for each sound module, refer to p. 8.

3.

Strike the BT-1 and verify that it is operating correctly.

MEMO

• The BT-1 is a single trigger pad. It cannot distinguish strikes on its head and rim.

• With some drum sound modules, the BT-1 will function as the rim trigger of a pad. In this case, we recommend that no sound or control function (e.g., pad pattern) be assigned to the “head” of the input the BT-1 is connected to.

Trigger Parameter Settings for the Drum

Sound Module

In order for the BT-1 to operate correctly, you must specify the optimal trigger parameter values on your drum sound module.

* For details on how to make settings, refer to the owner’s manual of your drum sound module.

* You may need to adjust the trigger parameters depending on how you’ve attached the BT-1 and the location at which you’ve installed it.

Troubleshooting

If the BT-1 does not operate as you expect, please check the following points first.

If you are still unable to resolve the problem, contact your retailer, the nearest Roland Service

Center, or an authorized Roland distributor, as listed on the “Information” page.

Problem

No sound

The sound of another pad is also heard when you strike the BT-1

Two or more notes are sounded when you strike once

The rim sound is heard instead of the head sound

The BT-1 is triggered when you strike a different pad or drum

Check / Action

Check the connections. (p. 7)

Firmly insert the plug of the connection cable all the way into the jack.

Use a stereo cable. (p. 7)

Adjust the volume to an appropriate level.

Check the instrument that’s assigned to the head (or rim) trigger.

Check the drum sound module’s trigger indicator to confirm that the drum sound module is receiving the trigger signals.

On some drum sound modules, the instrument might not sound if you’ve assigned a control function to the pad.

For details, refer to the owner’s manual of your drum sound module.

When the BT-1 is attached to the hoop of a V-Drums pad, striking the BT-1 will cause that pad to sound. If this presents a problem, it can be mounted on an optional stand.

Adjust the crosstalk cancel setting of your drum sound module.

Reattach the BT-1 at a different location.

Fasten the BT-1 firmly to the hoop or stand.

Fasten the attachment firmly.

Increase the retrigger cancel setting on your drum sound module. If this has no effect, increase the mask time setting.

When the BT-1 is connected to some drum sound modules, the head sound will not be triggered. The BT-1 will operate only as a rim trigger. This is not a malfunction.

Use a stereo cable. (p. 7)

If you’re using a drum sound module with which the BT-1 operates as a rim trigger, do not assign an instrument or control function to the head of the

trigger input the BT-1 is connected to. (p. 8)
