  • Need Help with TD10 splitter

    I have converted my Gretsch maple kit to electronic. I am wanting to put a splitter on the tom outputs. One will go to a single zone tom and the other to another single zone pad also. Any help or diagram will be much appreciated.

    hey there UPSdriver -
    check this thread
    http://vdrums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27881
    it is near the top of the DIY forum as a 'sticky' - stickys stay at the top of the list

    see if that answers your questions...
    if not, then post again
    TD-20 (non expanded), acoustic look DIY a to e conversion - some cake pan/ some crossbar method. DIY cymbals, VH-12 :-)

      I did see that thread but it did not mention the TD10. I thought for some reason it might be a different configuration for that unit.

        That's true, it is different for a TD-10 (where the only dual-piezo input is the snare). A simply modified splitter cable as in that thread won't work. You would need the more complex Raper circuit (to convert a piezo/rim-switch input for use with two piezos):

          Bruce,

          So, this raper circuit will convert dual-piezo signals (supposingly coming from 2 single zone pads) into piezo/switch signals which can be fed into one of TD-10's tirgger input?

          If so, does it mean this will give me dual-trigger on mesh pad on toms??

          PD-105 -> raper circuit -> Tom1 input on TD-10

          Has anyone tried?

          p.s. What am I thinking?! I thought I was a dumb drummer. Why suddenly I'm looking into DIY?!?!

            Yes, using the first version described.

            Yes, as an alternative to two pads, using either version of the circuit.

            Because you're a frugal dumb drummer? It can be blamed on the economy like everything else.

              Wow excellent, thanks Bruce!

                Bruce,

                Should it be version #2 instead, if I want to connect PD-105 to tom1 of my TD-10 and get rim sound?

                By the way, a stupid question: of the stereo jack, which contact corresponds to the main trigger, which to the rim trigger and which to the ground?

                  Either, as I said in answer to that question.

                  Tip=Head, Ring=Rim, Sleeve=Ground.

                        Not sure if this is still the case, but at one time Keith Raper would build the circuit box for a very reasonable price for those who needed that option...
                        I could tell you where to stick that piezo! ;)
