Become 'One' with Your Drum Kit
The BC-X is a silent bass drum monitoring system which allows you to feel, hear and experience your bass drum (and other sound sources if required) like you never felt or heard them before. It consists of the unique TT1 Precision Devices transducer, built into a Patented throne top, and uses bone conduction to deliver powerful, precise and nuanced reproduction without sound.

The BC-X will give you great connectivity to your drum kit whilst playing and recording. Designed with the semi-pro working musician in mind, it is also a fabulous tool for the touring professional due to it being ultra-compact and comfortable. Ready to use, 'plug in and play' system integrates seamlessly with both acoustic and electronic drums.

• Gives the drummer full control over power and intensity right by their side with unparalleled response speed (0% timing lag) while faithfully reproducing playing dynamics
• Amplified Tactile Generator Monitor System transmits the full bass drum signal and sound (or any other drum) physically up through the drum stool
• Round, all-vinyl throne top (13"; 33 cm across); contains a brand new dedicated TT1 tactile transducer
• Throne top is designed to accommodate 7/8" diameter throne bases (throne-base not included)
• BC-X 'Engine', which contains all of the electronics (Amp, preamp, inputs/outputs, protection circuitry, and volume and tone controls); measures only 8" x 7" x 4" (20 x 19 x 10 cm)
• Engine is completely encased in a steel 'exoskeleton' with durable rubberised 'bumper' corner pieces and a sturdy 'roll bar' protective carrying handle
• Combined single mic/line input socket; mic input utilizes a XLR lead, while the line input is via standard 1/4" jack
