The TT6 Equipped Throne contains our new bespoke 1,000W TT6 transducer which we initially designed to power active staging but we have since been fitting them in dedicated thrones for bands such as The Who, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Anthrax, Bastille, The Cult, Lamb of God, Royal Blood, The Pretenders, Embrace, A-ha, James Blunt, Stereophonics, A Day To Remember, John JR Robinson, Papa Roach, Hollywood Vampires, OAR, Mariah Carey, Bush, Stone Sour, Alice In Chains, and Rod Stewart.
The main advantage of the TT6 Equipped Throne is that it can be driven by a stage amp from the monitor desk position, which many touring bands and rental companies prefer as they can drive it with their existing stage amps and control them from the monitor desk.
The TT6 Equipped Throne has all the sensitivity, speed, dynamic range and punch of our regular thrones but it can also deliver endless levels of power if required. It is particularly well suited to fast double bass drum / double pedal players in high volume situations.
The TT6 Equipped Throne has the same external appearance to our regular BC2 and Gigster thrones so it is extremely portable. The round and saddle versions will fit inside a standard snare drum case.
Custom throne options are available with the TT6 Equipped Throne such as being able to accommodate various model backrests and Airlift / Nitro brackets.
The TT6 Equipped throne is the bigger brother of the BC2, BC2rm and Gigster: It is a passive 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. This works mainly through bone conduction (see the Theory page). 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 Patented TT6 Equipped Throne is an all-in-one unit in which we internally mount the highest quality and most efficient Tactile Transducer available, and in the case of the TT6 by far the most powerful transducer on the market. There is zero compromise on build quality.
The TT6 Equipped Throne does not come supplied with a P&D Engine (amplifier) and is aimed at those who already have power amplifiers.
The three handmade comfortable Throne top designs are extremely sturdy and elegantly constructed, and are adorned with a silk ‘Porter & Davies’ logo. They will accommodate 7/8” diameter throne bases as used by DW, Gibraltar, Roc N Soc, Yamaha, Tama, Ludwig, Premier, Custom Percussion, and others. Custom options, backrests and pneumatic (Nitro / Airlift etc) mounting brackets are available on request.
