  • TD-17KV Crash/Aux trigger problems...help please.

    Hello,

    I am using TD-17KV, and I recently bought a CY13R ride cymbal to add to my set.

    I also bought VH-11 for authentic hi-hat, which leaves me with two extra trigger pads..CY-5 that used to be used for my hi-hat, and CY-8 that used to be my ride.

    I thought it would serve me perfectly as extra cymbals for my set.

    I tried connecting them with mono cable to my Crash 2 and AUX input, but the problem is that it doesn't trigger the cymbal edge..

    I tried to change the cable to Stereo Cable with two black stripes, but the problem is still the same.

    What kind of cable must I use to be able to use all features of the cymbal?

    Regards,

    Kun

    You must use a TRS cable. Not sure what "stereo" cable you tried but this is the type: https://www.amazon.com/Hosa-CSS-110R.../dp/B0010CCC80
    Crash 2 input should already be set to a cymbal sound. Both inputs should be set to the type of pad you are using in the Trigger section of the module.

      Hi there,
      I would like to ask you about upgrading TD17KV. You did exactly as I am planning to do, and I have a few questions if you please answer.

      1. I have TD17KV with MDS-COM but it does not have the third splash cymbal arm as TD17KVX has. How did you solve that issue? I couldn't find any solutions from Roland even though they say that the missing arm is sold separately.

      2. Have you finally achieved your goals making the kit fully functional with VH-11 and CY13R? Do you think that it's been good as a real improvement?

      Thanks a lot in advance!
      Best
