I need some help with a diagram I found on wiring up some dual zone, chokeable cymbals. The only problem is that this diagram is for a Roland module.
I want to use a Yamaha DTXPRESS IV Special module. Here is the link:
There is a video that explains all this here:
The idea/diagram uses a metal cymbal as the "wire"/conductor to complete the loop for the switch. However, I want to do this with a plastic cymbal.
The first, and more important, question is will this also work for the Yamaha module? If it does, would this switch still work using a plastic cymbal with like a copper patch adhered to the cymbal (the switch and everything else would still be metal, and it would be adhered in the same manner as the copper patch) with a wire soldered to it to complete the loop?
If I did not want to use any metal patches at all, could I not just theoretically attach an extra wire to the metal switch that I make as directed by the video and complete the loop that way?
It would be awesome if I could. But, regardless, the Yamaha module may not even accept the same wiring rig.
PLEASE HELP ME!
