The altZONE is a single zone FSR trigger that is designed to be placed on any FLAT surface, including your snare drum, tom toms and bass drum without excessive muffling of the drum.
The altZONE is the true HYBRID ACOUSTIC ELECTRONIC trigger. When you place them on your drum head, they only become active when you strike directly on the trigger. When you want to be acoustic, play on the drum... when you want an electronic sound, strike the sensor. There is NO interaction or crosstalk between the drum head and the altZONE or any other surrounding drum. The FSR sensor has a superior dynamic range, with a fast clean signal.
FSR triggers need to be powered. Alternate Mode offers the FTB (fsr trigger box), that can accomodate up to six altZONEs at one time. Our DITI (drum intelligent trigger interface) can load in twelve altZONEs at one time.
The altZONE was redesigned in 2018 to make the trigger surface and cabling more durable.
In the next few months, we will be transitioning the powder coating metal and sensor overlays of our malletKAT, vibeKAT and trapKAT products to a new, bright white body.
This beautiful and contemporary look is further enhanced by also including a solid black nylon coating atop of the pads. This coating is not just aesthetic, but provides additional protection of the pads from the sun, rain, and general abuses.
