so ive been looking around at what kind of triggers people are using on this site and and it seems like Roland and DDrum are te big names. so i just wanted to know what you think is better overall. im BRAND NEW to triggering. just got an Alesis DM5 off ebay and now im looking for some solid triggers that wont miss hit or double trigger and will last a long time. i dont just want to start out cheap like with everything else ive done with drums.

so overall, who's got the better triggers? Roland or DDrum? or another company? if so who? and what model.

THANKS!

here are a few threads on other sites where this comparison has been discussed before.
Not sure if you can read them if you're not a member; if not, let me know, I'll copy the info.

no problem, hope it helps some. There's lots of other threads there discussing triggers in general if you need more info.

Upshot of the comparison is that the metal casing and XLR connectors on the Ddrum seem to be the only real difference, construction-wise.
Functionally, they pretty much do the same thing.
XLR might give you a tighter lock on the cable input, but then you've got a 'specialty cable' issue to deal with.
