Originally developed for military simulation devices, the Full Contact Audio® Professional Transducers were specifically designed to transfer sounds like gunshots and explosions into a tactile experience that can be felt as well as heard. This technology transferred to the music industry, and every knowledgeable drummer or sound stage touring manager will choose Clark Synthesis Professional Transducers over any other option due to their amazing performance quality and reliability. The TC-101 serves as a protection device to limit peak signals.

Clark Synthesis Tactile Sound Transducers (TSTs) transform pure audio as electrical energy into pure audio as vibrational energy. TSTs are much more than shakers. Shakers only make things shake. TSTs faithfully reproduce audio signals bringing new levels of realism and enjoyment to VR spaces, Home Theaters, Simulators, Movie Theaters, etc.
A Thumper is a TST designed for the Prosound market – The Prosound429 Thumper. The The Prosound429 mounts under a drum throne, piano stool, the stage, or a platform. The kick drum is often routed to the The Prosound429 so musicians can feel the beat and play perfectly in sync.
