  • Connecting two side mounted triggers.

    Hi guys,

    I'm not really good in this diy stuff, but basically I use a intrigg trigerra on my snare and I have a spare one, amd I was curious if there is way to connect them so I use 2 side mounted triggers on the snare, left an right. Atv uses 3 I believe.

    Yeah, just wire them up in parallel, ie, both red and black (or whatever colour they are) wires from each trigger to the same point on the jack.

          I will be using td6v, dont know if that will make a difference
          and will it be good if I put the triggers like the first picture or the second?

            What he's saying is take a soldering iron and disconnect the wires from one of the triggers and extend them by soldering new wires to the that trigger and extend them to the other trigger. Then wire them up in parallel, meaning solder your new extensions to the jack of the other trigger, making sure you keep the "red with red" and "black with black". If you don't have soldering skills, you could do this externally from the jacks, but would need a TRS Y connector. You'd take your stereo lead from the module and split it with the TRS Y connector. Then run the two "sides" of the Y connector to each of your trigger jacks. This should keep things in parallel.

            Hope this helps.

                Put them where you're least likely to hit them directly - e.g. at 4:30 and 7:30.

                          I can't really say - you may have to but you won't know until you try it out.

                            I did it, it works great, just need to fine tune the settings, thanks for the help 20200111_154947.jpg
