Alternate Mode Brand Trigger Pedals

ekic with pedal


An incredibly sensitive and dynamic "reverse beater" bass drum trigger that uses your own bass drum pedal (or ours...)

Superior Performance The eKIC uses the same "nuBounce" material that is currently used on the malletKAT and trapKAT. This nuBounce material has a very dense molecular makeup, transferring with ease soft hits to the sensor. Because of its density however, it becomes more resistant to harder hits, allowing for harder playability before the sensor reaches dynamic saturation.

ehat with pedal


Alternate Mode has taken a different approach in solving electronic hihat triggering.  Introducing the eHAT.  

This trigger device has some interesting unique new features never seen on a hihat pedal. The hihat controller has the widest dynamic and controller range of any pedal on the market. This will ensure the smoothest range from open to closed. By using a separate, independent trigger for the "chick", better dynamics are now possible because the "chick" is not interpreted by speed or movement of the foot pedal, but by the actual force applied to the sensor.

Use it on your own bass drum pedal (or use ours)
  • fits underneath your existing bass drum pedal (with a bottom plate)
  • allows for an adjustable feel using the springs and settings on your favorite pedal
  • superior feel because your using a real pedal
  • better response because it’s a real bass drum pedal!
