 (VERSION 2)                    External Trigger Required: Kick with pedal

Version 1 (EXP) will require all 4 external trigger inputs as Kick, Snare, Ride, and Hi Hat.  This version is intended for the user to plug in pads to the external 4 trigger inputs (plus a pedal for the Hi Hat Controller) to make a complete drum set.  Kick, Ride, Snare and Hi Hat are NOT programmed on the pads of the SPD-30 but are on the external triggers.  The 8 pads are then programmed according to the kit description.   You can change your external pad type/setup without harming the model.

Version 1 (EXP) is designed for drummers who are using/performing with the SPD -30 as an expanded complete drum set with the use of external pads connected (Kick, Snare, Hi Hat, and Ride).

Version 2 (SC) will require 1 of the 4 external triggers (the external kick trigger only.)  This version is intended for the user to play the SPD-30 as self contained drum set (without the external pads for Snare, Hi Hat, or Ride required).  Snare, Hi Hat, and Ride are programmed on the pads of the SPD-30. 

Version 2 (SC) is designed for drummers using the SPD-30 as a self-contained drum set (Octapad only with kick drum trigger).

For those using the SPD-30 as an added percussion system to accompany their acoustic drum set, we offer the extended percussion set for sale separately.
