  • dual piezo input splitter

    Solder the resistor between tip and ring posts on the TRS plug.
    I am a little confused about where the resistor actually goes, and the pic is not clear as well (from jmans post). Any clarafication on where to place the resistor?

    Thanks.

    Between the two shortest posts inside a TRS connector (which are very close together).

        ...with the resistor going from tip to tip of the 2 mono jacks

        Actually now I am going the "box" route. Just back from RS with the box, resistor(s) and two stereo 1/4" jacks and two mono jacks and wire.

        So I am guessing it is as it says, the resistor will connect between the two mono jacks where the tip connects with the jack (or the long contact point in the jack).

        What's the damage to the TD12 if i mess this up?

        BTW my RS does not carry piezos, and the resistor selection is drying up. Online shopping seems the best option.

            Yeah, I am bummed since I do not have the piezo. Took the head off my PDX-80 and now it all seems clear. Peice of cake! I am going to buy a pintech splash and china single zone pad first (connect with these DIY boxes) and then convert my 8", 10" concert toms and the 12" and 13" toms using a mount basically like thePDX80. Then I am looking to clean them up with a new cany apple red wrap!. Seems easy enough. Good Luck!

                Thanks JmanWord for the info. It was great. So I am up and running. Its in a project box and looks clean and professional. It is not the same as a direct plug in, and rolls and what not are not as clean, but for a splash/china it works well. I may now use it on less pads then I thought but that's ok.

                For some reason I have 600' of wire in that little box, so some improvements are in order!

                  Glad you got it working... They are a little better suited for splashes, chinas, cowbells, blocks. But can be used for toms. I have one for 2 Roto toms and with a bit of parameter tweaking I find it just acceptable... not perfect for buzz rolls like I've mentioned ... but decent.
                  I could tell you where to stick that piezo! ;)

                    Yeah I think the rim gain was useful. I will play with this once i have the extra pads ready.
