Best transducer/silent monitor but I was expecting more

19.09.2016
This is a nearly silent transducer that represents a physical shaking wave of a sound wave. Because it 'translates' the sound waves into motion waves you can really understand the difference depending on what you play, how you play it or how you tune it. It is mostly used for bass drum but you can feed anything through the line input too. Keep in mind that mostly low frequencies can be reproduced and felt so do not expect to feel the cymbals if u decide to send the overheads f.e. to it.
Personally and after a lot of correspondence with the manufacturers which involved the equipment being sent back and forth for 3 times, I think that this equipment does not give you the crazy feeling that the manufacturers are promising. It's not that it is better playing without or not pleasing but it will not shake your chest like a big monitor placed close to your drums.
Ideal if you don't hear enough of bass while playing with your band, with in-ears, to achieve a sonic and tactile experience by combining it with monitors, for e-drums or to low down your bass and as a result the volume in your monitors. It makes you play the bass drum with more confidence and relaxed and not strangle to hit it hard.
This is a luxury not a necessity and it is addressed to demanding drummers or professionals.
As expensive as a mid level drum set.

Pros: tactile experience, helps you to relax with your foot, input is represented accurately, nearly silent, superb built quality, mic in and line in, portable and in tough case, nice throne (not very soft but comfortable)

Cons: too much expensive, not as powerful as promised when played without other conventional monitor/in ear, no throne legs supplied

Monitor "captured" the extra class

03.05.2015
Before buying, I used InEar Monitoring, 1 18 "Sub of BFT and two 2/12 Peavey (with 15" EV Speakern and 1 special Horn) boxes converted by the expert.
The reason for the thought of this system was the constant whine (better) of the guys live as in the Proberaum, when I asked the soundmen "more pressure" to feel the kick also.
The tip of the convertor of the 2/12 ..... Drumsitz mit Motor. After the test of the savings versions on the market was clear at the first kick, Porter & Davies is the benchmark. Immediate appeal of the entire seat, dynamic as in real life and reserves of volume control. I could not turn it up, it's unpleasant. Likewise the line in is wonderful for the whole monitor mix ... depending on the song you can now feel the bass!
The workmanship is very good. Warm the power amp is only light, even after 3 hours Proberaumgig with birthday guests. Please do not measure on the indicated Watt power. Other devices offer up to 10 times more "written" power, but almost everything is lost on the transmission path, or there is no more dynamics. 19 "version was still the consideration, but I want to stay as flexible as possible.It is now switched off by the active monorail sound system, but now InEar and Porter & Davies are in a good mood, exact response and sensational fun I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a quiet place to stay, but it is a good place to stay.
