I'm not in Europe but for 10+ years I've used two drum triggers. The brand was Red Dot or something like that. There is a brand called Pintech that look good but I haven't tried them out yet. Something similar is bound to be around Europe.

I've also always used drum triggers, and I think even this same brand. They're pretty good, especially for the price, but they always eventually crap out or start humming. Found these https://www.amazon.de/Neewer%C2%AE-Kontakt-Mikrofon-Tonabnehmer-Gitarre-Mandoline/dp/B019TW4BZO/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1522501618&sr=8-3&keywords=contact+mic, which I'll probably try out just cuz they're so insanely cheap, but ultimately I'm looking for a couple real sturdy ones that I can rely on in a live setting. What's Traumatone Bloomer up to these days?

not European but I suggest crank sturgeon's mics. I have several of them and they are all excellent especially the heavy duty ones that you can also drive on with your car. no kidding.

thirded.  I still use a Traumatone GOAT mic on my main pelican 'shaker box', but yes - EVERYTHING else i use mics for, including the live snorkelling sets, are from Crank Sturgeon.

Not European but I think Cold Gold are the best and sturdiest I've used. Also, they are not covered in so much glue so you can still get some good high frequencies out of them. https://www.contactmicrophones.com/
