            After a couple of months reading these threads; I finally did the V-ride bell fix over the weekend. Despite the horrified looks from my wife, I stuck on some tape, put it back together, and now have a bell that does what I always hoped it would.

            Thanks again for the fix, and for posting the pics on that website.

            Mike.

              Glad it worked...
              Just out of curiousity, what kind of tape did you use and how much did you put on?

                I went with the standard two pieces of (black) electrical tape, one on top of the other. I tried not to let the tape overlap the sides of the groove.

                It is fine now - maybe not as sensitive as some... but I can just about get a trigger with the tip of the stick, and with the shoulder it is very easy. Didn't want any more sensitivity in case of false triggers (of which I have had none). It has a good dynamic range too.

                Suits me...

                Mike.

                  Snills et al.,

                  Good to see this thread moving around again. Just fyi...I ended up having to back off my original "tape sandwich" design (posted a few weeks back), as I was getting a lot of odd triggering, choking etc. from it. So, I went back in once again and just opted for 4 2-inch pieces of black electrical tape applied directly to the FSR at the 3 and 9 position. Works like a charm now. Snills, you're a veritable god man! Remind me later to relay the story of how, not paying attention and running my mouth, I went to the kit to retrieve the ride cymbal and inadvertently removed the cy-14 crash right next to it. Yep, kept running my mouth and blindly tore the rubber off of it only to discover there was no tape. Can you say dumbass boys and girls? Sure....I knew you could
