  • Trigger box

    Hi

    Small question... Where do you guys find trigger boxes. I read somewhere you should be able to find them on ebay, but I can't seem to find any. Maybe my search term isn't correct. I'm looking for the female jack attached to e-cymbals. I assume they exist with a piezo installed in it...

    Does someone have a link where I can find something like that?

    Thanks guys!

    What do you mean with trigger boxes? Cabled piezos like in this photo? You can try some buzzer on electronic markets if you can do some solder yourself with the trs jacks. IDK much about resellers but I know JMan here (stealthdrums.com) has them, or maybe Magnatrack? I have something (including edge membranes) but not yet ready.

      By trigger box, I mean the little black box in which you put your jack - see e.g. the small black box on the cymbal in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npnuaguzq6Y. I assume in this box is not only the female jack, but also the piezo, right?

      I've been watching a couple of video's, trying to understand how to DIY an e-cymbal. Watching this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6HjxoNGhEU made a few things clear, but also some things confusing. I mean, at a certain point (3.30) he speaks about soldering a wire to the cymbal to haven connection. That to me is a bit confusing, since Roland cymbals are in rubber, my current Hart Dynamics crashes are plastic...

      But basically, I'm referring to the little black box, containing the female jack (and I suppose, also the piezo).

        OK, so other than those 2 resellers IDK, maybe also these ones:

        https://pintech.com/product/cymbal-repair-kit/
        https://www.ebay.com/str/goedrumus

        On the video he explains that is using both cymbal itself and the other piece below for the choke and edge sounds as switch contacts, so you need to connect both to the jack connector. Of course this is only possible on metal cymbals that can act as electro conductors:
        if I recall correctly the piezo brass and the cymbal goes to sleeve, piezo ceramic to tip and the other switch contact to the ring. I don't have schematics by hand at the moment, sorry.

        EDIT: Check also this post, there are some useful infos and a link (polycase.com) to what you are looking for.

          I think you may be referring to something like this? Most of these boxes are called "project box" or "project case". Hope this helps.
