  • PD-25 Signal Problem

    I'm playing with a TD-30 and using a PD-125 for the snare. I seem to be getting too much signal from the rim compared to the signal from the head. I put a different PD-125 into the snare input, and that drum sends signals just fine. It's just this particular PD-125 that seems to be the problem. Ideas of what is wrong with this drum and how to correct the problem?

    If you also eliminated the TRS cable as the problem I would suggest removing the head and inspecting the foam trigger cone. Foam wears down over time and causes reduced or errant triggering. Piezos can fail from a cracked ceramic or broken wire, but checking the foam would be the first step IMO.
    I could tell you where to stick that piezo! ;)
