    That's shocking! do i need to wear an asbestos suit when i play?

    So we have been playing these kits for years, what are you exactly saying?

    Aha above, we are safe in the BBQ arena, it never stops raining long enough here to have one.

      hing shocking about it.......Consider the fact that the pushbutton that generates an ignition spark in your barbeque, is nothing more than a piezo cylinder on the end of a button.

        I fear that I may have posted to soon . . . I was just told that the scope that I used defaults to a 10X scale. 4 Volts sounds a lot better. I'll try and confirm this later.

          Dang...I was just thinking of a way to hook all the V-drummers to the power grid to provide cheap electricity Wonder if I could power my laptop...

            Keep in mind too that your scope no doubt has an extremely high impedance input and will not be loading the piezo. What you will be measuring would be pretty close to the open circuit voltage and I would not be at all surprised to see a fairly high voltage across them unloaded.
