  • Adding pad to TD-11K

    Hi all

    My Roland TD-11K has a dual zone mesh snare pad and three single zone rubber PD-8A tom pads.

    I've managed to get hold of a fourth PD-8A pad and would like to add it to my kit - but without using the Crash 2 input, as I want to keep that free to add a third cymbal pad in due course.

    Having read lots about drum splitter cables from various sources I'm still not entirely clear, so here's my question...

    Can I take the stereo cable that is currently plugged into one of the single zone pads, add a stereo jack female to female coupler, then a male stereo jack to 2 x mono jack plug splitter and then plug the two mono jacks into the existing pad and the new one? Will I then be able to assign two different sounds to each pad or will I just get the same sound on both?

    I have looked at the splitters on drumsplitters.com and contacted them also, but not heard anything as yet, so I thought I'd ask you guys!

    Many thanks in advance for any help and advice you can give me!

    In a word, no. If you can solder, there is a diagram somewhere around the DIY section for a Roland drum splitter. Some have had success, some, not so much. The TD11 (and the 15) are very limited in expansion.

      I've used drumsplitters with my TD-11. They work great - well worth the $20.

        yes, better for splitting toms than cymbals, or so I've heard
        Roland TD-11: PD-105 snare, PDX-100 toms (3); CY-13R ride; CY-12 crash (2); KD-9 kick; Iron Cobra HP900 kick pedal; VH-10 hi-hat; Iron Cobra HH605 hi-hat stand; Simmons DA200s monitor; Sony MDR-7520 and Audioquest Nightowl headphones; AD2; VEX Apex, Sync, Icons, Boost, Masters 1-2; Drum-Tec LA Studios, Real Acoustic, Alternate Rock Sound Editions

          Thanks for the responses. I've ordered a splitter, so will see how I get on I guess! Thanks again

            I can't understand why they don't ( or can't ) add a few more Aux. inputs for more cymbals and toms. All drummers don't play four or five piece kits and even those that do have a few more cymbals.

              Product differentiation? The TD11 module is half the price of the TD15.
