  • TD-8 Module on TD-11 kit, which pad types to use?

    I've been experimenting with different pad settings from this table to find the best options for using these newer pads with my older TD-8 module, any advice would be appreciated. I've upgraded some of the single zone PD-8A with dualzone PD-8 Toms, otherwise the TD-11 kit is stock.

    Suggested pad types from this list for...
    PDX-8 Mesh Snare?
    CY-5 Hi hat
    CY-8 Cymbals
    KD-9 Kick pad
    PD-8 and PD-8A Toms
