The BC2 allows you to feel, experience and hear the bass drum like you never felt it beforeBorn out of a combination of necessity and ingenuity, the BC2 by Porter & Davies is a small, highly portable and tough solution to an age-old problem: We all know the feeling of the bottom end thump when we see a band from out front. Who usually feels that the least in the whole room? The drummer. The answer is a device that you are in control of, which delivers the weight and power and the sound of the bass drum without the external volume.
The BC2 allows you to feel, experience and hear the bass drum like you never felt it before. It consists of a Patented throne top with the finest Tactile Generator mounted internally, coupled to a flightcased electronics "Engine" pack. The system delivers powerful and nuanced reproduction, transmitted through bone conduction. The BC2 offers unparalleled response speed (0% lag) and sensitivity, so will faithfully replicate all of your playing dynamics: It will respond to long notes (beater off) as well as short notes (beater on), depending on drum dampening, tuning, and playing style.
If you're using in-ear monitoring, you'll be able feel the bass drum like never before. If you're not using in-ears, this system so accurately connects you to your bass drum that it will improve your confidence, groove, playing and whole stage experience. It is an absolute revelation in the recording studio! As well as the bass drum, you can also feed in toms, snare drum, and even bass guitar. The sensitivity and response are so accurate that even ghosted double stroke snare rolls are represented.
The BC2 electronics fit into a road rugged flightcased "Engine" pack the size of a 10" tom case which only weighs 10 kilos. It is extremely portable and, most importantly, is quick and easy to set up. Simply open the case, plug in throne, plug in mic, plug in power and you're away!
The BC2 features hardwired passive XLR mic in and out sockets. Line XLR socket which accepts both balanced and unbalanced inputs. Phantom Power selector to accommodate both dynamic and condenser microphones. NL4 Speakon connection from Engine to Throne.
Note* - Throne base (leg assembly) is NOT INCLUDED - The BC2 throne tops accommodate 7/8" spigots, which are standard on throne bases made by Roc n Soc, DW, Gibraltar, Tama, Ludwig, Premier, Yamaha, Custom Percussion, and others.
