The lightweight Roland TM-1 Trigger Module is aimed at helping players take their first step into the world of hybrid drumming. Two guitar pedal-style stomp switches enable you to use it as a foot pedal and toggle between 15 inbuilt kits. Small physical dials allow control over the two trigger inputs, including sensitivity, pitch, decay and volume control for each trigger. You can even add your own custom samples and loops. For Black Friday this compact unit has been dropped to the silly price of $109.99. Read the TM-1 review
