  • 2ZRide - Circuit

    I saved the best for last with my DIY cymbals.

    Here's a photoshop of how I am planning my 2z Ride. I just wanted some input from a few seasoned DIY'ers to make sure it's right.

    FYI: I will be using this with a td-20 (not planning on edge triggering for now, but may add a choke switch later)

    It doesn't work unless I'm doing something wrong.

      That looks right to me based on the diagram I used. I'd have to suggest reversing some of the connections one at a time.

      I have just built the exact same circuit, but haven't tried it yet because I'm waiting on the cymbal. Personally, I find the transistor connections the most confusing, and I'd probably start diagnosis by swapping the 2 outer connections.

      Best of luck ink, I'll definately be interested in how things turn out.

        funny because that's exactly what I did to get it to work earlier ... swapped poles 1 & 3 on the transistor.

        the aux(edge) piezo even makes for a nice choke the way I have it. Pics to follow in a few days.

        next, a hi-hat controller.

          Awesome! I can't wait to see your pictures, and what you come up with for your HH control.
          I just got my cymbal back from Bulldog and can't wait to get home to try it out.

            make sure the diode(1N4148) is in the right way.
