  • alternative to a Piezo

    Is there an alternative to a Piezo for pickups? I heard from a friend there is a thin tape type substance you can use and it doesn't pick up cross talk.

      There are FSR based triggers. Or a switch.

        Note that a piezo gives out a voltage when striking it. An FSR is a Force Sensitive Resistor. It changes resistance when pressure is applied. It will probably not work as a direct replacement for a piezo.

          Yes, the FSR needs to be powered - it's not a direct replacement.

            All Alternate Mode's stuff is FSR (DrumKat, TrapKat etc). http://www.alternatemode.com/ They also have a range of FSR triggers you can buy, along with appropriate black boxes to interface them.
