The BC2rm has the same features, power and performance as the regular BC2 engine, but is in a 2U 19” rack-mount layout.Like the flight-cased BC2 and lightweight, streamlined Gigster, the BC2rm system delivers Stealth Monitoring technology that enables users to hear and feel their drums internally via the company’s innovative Bone Conduction techniques (thus the BC name). It also of course includes a Porter & Davies patented transducer-loaded drum throne.
The BC2rm is an amplified Tactile Generator Monitor System which turns the bass drum signal (and other signals if required) into “tactile sound” up through the drum stool. You feel it and hear it, but no one else does. The result is far more sophisticated than a simple "thump". All of the tone and intricacies of the bass drum sound and impact are felt and heard internally.
The BC2rm is a two unit system consisting of an "Engine" which contains all of the electronics: - Amp, preamp, inputs and outputs, protection circuitry, and volume and tone controls, and the throne top. The Patented BC2 Throne is an all-in-one unit in which we internally mount the highest quality and most efficient Tactile Transducer available. There is zero compromise on build quality. The handmade comfortable Throne top designs are extremely sturdy and elegantly constructed, and are adorned with a silk "BC2 by Porter & Davies" logo.
The BC2rm 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. It will TRANSFORM your playing experience; the drummer and drum kit become "one" and your groove will be stronger than ever. 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.
You will feel full control of power and intensity immediately at your side. The system is 100% consistent, night after night, completely irrelevant of acoustics, stage volume, room size, etc.
• Here is another BIG advantage for fully amplified gigs: No bass drum(s) thumping through big monitor subs to pollute the stage sound.
• The kit can be miked up more ambiently, and the sound engineer hasn't got to gate or roll off all the heavy bottom from the other mics. The toms can now breathe properly and sound huge... The singers also have less to moan about!
• Fantastic with MIDI kits: Real power, and you'll lose that disconnected feeling. The sense of reality has to be experienced to be believed.
• Cheaper tour/stage spec: No subs required for the drummer.
• For recording, the new sense of weight, nuance and connection is invaluable.
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.
