  • 3 triggers question - wiring

    So, I've noticed that aDrums uses three head triggers (mounted in a triangle pattern near the side of the drum). I'm not an electrical engineer or very "piezo" savy... but if I wanted to try to duplicate this set up - Would I wiring them in a series or in parallel?? Has anyone tried to duplicate that set up? Would you need a resister to lower the sensitivity of three together? What would you more experience folks forsee as pitfalls or 'gotchas' to watch out for?

    Any additional comments or things you would need to think about to do something like that?

    Thanks,
    Alan

    I connect them in parallel, at least for my DIY cymbals. For snare and toms I usually have a central one or mounted at 7 o'clock internally.
