  • Piezo sizes

    I recently acquired a cheap 12" tom that I'm intending to slice and convert into a snare and a rack tom. My question is: what size piezos would you use? The default for the Quartz triggers (where I'll be minimally ordering the foam cones) seems to be 35mm. I believe my Roland pads have 27mm piezos. What would you do? Thanks!

    The 35's are thought to be more sensitive. Either will be fine.

      I have 35's on my build but I also wired in a potentiometer to dial down the head piezo. I think I have the head piezo at an 8/10 on that dial. It gave me a bit more flexibility with my trigger settings on the module.
      I think my work is done here.

        Thanks all!

        Tommy_D: I saw your posting about this (nice build!). In fact, it was your inclusion of that potentiometer that had me thinking that 35's might be too sensitive.

          I originally had 35mm with my td 12 module , when I got the td30 they were way too hot , ended up replacing all with 27 mm and all has been fine since.

            I got the 27 mm from Quartz by making a special request .
