    I'm in canada, there is nobody that I've seen here with anything other the the full kit available, I've been searching for cymbal expansion for a while! I can hunt down some 2box I'm sure, but they're twice as expensive as the roland/yammy, and I'd have to ship them in from far.

    I recently traded in some gear at a local shop, and he is a roland/Yamaha authorized dealer but doesn't deal with 2box. That got me thinking about options for expansion. Since I'm learning that 2box ride will be better, I really just need a couple accent cymbals now.

    Of the two, would you Recomend the Yamaha pcy135, or the roland cy12c for crash/china usage?
    Yamaha because they have the extra inch diameter and are cheaper.

    • Thank you! I guess a dumb question, but they will work with a single trs cable like the 2box? Any mods needed? What about mounting? Should I buy hardware or mounting or can I use clamps and stands from my A kit stash?

      I'm going in an hour to hopefully grab something.

        Yep 1 regular cable. They may have a cable and the anti spin device in the box. Have a peek to make sure. Should mount on regular cymbal stands. Fold 1 up and take it with you. Have fun.

          • Hi,

            i posted some more details about using the Yamaha cymbals in the 2Box forum:

            http://www.2box-forum.com/index.php?topic=1010.0

            I would also recommend a Yamaha cymbal at the 3rd cymbal input. It works pretty good with 2 zones. For the 4th cymbal at one of the tom inputs any common 1-zone cymbal should be sufficient.

            Regards, Manfred

                  • Can I add the incident between an XM cymbal and a 2Box HH?



                    simple way for have a 13" hh, but expensive (needed buy 2 cymbals)



                    And the heavier XM mod (without box under cymbal for best motion, best center of gravity)
                    This in 11" mono splash, next step 13" with rim for 3-zone

                      • I decided to make Daniel's thread a sticky as there is some good info in here. Some of the info might need updating, but if it can't be found it is hard to post to it.

                        As far as the Manfred 2Box HH control boards he quit making those. But I have built some 2Box compatible control box kits myself as well as a 2Box 32GB external card slot conversion kit. Here are some details copied from another thread:

                        Besides the cymbal and drum conversion kits for the Drumit Five and the new Drumit Three. I also have a plug n play Extender Cable mod.

                        I now stock the Extender cables plus compatible SDHC cards. There are not many cards available that work with the module, and they discontinue them quickly when the next model comes out. The 2Box module is pretty unique in it's requirement for SD card, it is not the fastest card that works it is the card with the best little known or displayed Read Access time. Read access is not a concern really for most other devices, but critical to no latency performance of the 2Box module. . I fully load the card with all the stock 2Box sounds. Plus every extra 2Box sound that has been added to the 2Box website. So this comes with everything that is normally on the 2Box stock card plus a bunch of extra kits, loops, songs, etc. that wouldn't even fit on the standard 4GB card. It also has the latest OS, Manual, Quick Start guide. You simply do the card extender mod that takes about 20 minutes, very simple really. Start the module with the new card and you are plug n play. ~~Please be sure your module is running Boot Loader 1.30 or above, the earlier 1.10 boot loader may not be compatible: http://www.2box-forum.com/index.php/topic,191.0.html

                        The detailed instructions for that mod are here: http://www.2box-forum.com/index.php?topic=991.0 Disclaimer: This mod could invalidate your warranty, and is completely AT OWN RISK!

                        As mentioned earlier the 2Box Hi Hat is required. Either using the stock 2Box HH cymbal setup or robbing the control board out of the 2Box HH to build a separate control box to use other cymbals for the Hi Hat. A member of the 2Box forum, Manfred previously built some special HH control boards that made it possible to put a box under a standard Hi Hat pedal. He no longer builds those.

                        I have been able to build a few of the 2Box Hi Hat Controller/conversion kits over the past year. Getting the HH control boards has been a little difficult, few and far between, but I have been able to acquire them and do have the 2Box Hi Hat conversion kits that I build and sell when available. Those are a piece of cake to install. You just attach the box with the peel n stick Velcro to the bottom of the HH base, stick the magnet under the pedal, plug n play. I inserted some pics of the 32GB extender conversion kit plus the Stealth 2Box controller/stand conversion kit. Just shoot me an email if there is anything I can help with, J

                          • Jman, this is interesting to follow. You did some outstanding work!

                            Just to add:
                            Currently not in stock, but Thomann has the 2Box hihat magnet available as a spare part.
                            I'm sure for some DIYers, this will come in handy!
