  • DIY drum triggering problem

    Hi, I'm just newbie, and can't speak english really well, so apologise it for me.

    I just built my diy edrum, like the same concept as this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64K_X5xz9n0

    I'm using Alesis trigger IO.

    My problem is that when I hit my drums, I'm getting way to much ghost notes, but I'm already using so much retrigger time, and high treshold on the IO, and still getting them. (Picture below)

    I tried out different foam types, adjust the meshhead with no results. Is it possible, that I'm using to slim, and flexible wood, or metal, and should get something heavier?
