*The performance of the RT-Series can be affected by elements such as the type of drum being used, the tuning and use of a mute. For best performance, refer to both the drum trigger's and sound module's Owner's Manual and set the trigger parameters accordingly.

*Be sure to mute the bass and snare drum(toms can also be muted if external vibrations are picked up).

*Use a ring mute or mute-type drum head to improve the performance of the RT-5S Snare Trigger.

*Note that the RT-3T Tom Trigger cannot be used with mesh heads.

*Due to the mute-free design of the RT-3T, when the sticks hit the shell or the rim of the drum, it may produce a louder volume than striking the head.

All specifications and appearances are subject to change.
