  • Yamaha dual trigger and TD10?

    I just bought a Yamaha BP80 to go with my VPro set. The BP80 is a dual trigger tubular bar that looks like a nimrod or dingbat from pintech. Only diffrence is that it has two pads along the bar and uses a stereo cord for two different sounds; or at least that is what is supposed to do. The first trigger works fine but the second that is assigned to the rim works about 10% of the time, it ussually triggers the sound from the first trigger. I messed around with the trigger parameters - crosstalk and scantime etc. but did not have much luck. Any suggestions or should I send her back?
    Thanks, Rob

      Hey Boingo - great reply - that guy linked to must be really smart!

      Anyhow, I have long ago given up trying to access the rim trigger on the Aux 11/12 inputs using the BP80. Even the 'shack adapter' didn't work.

      The BP80 is a great dual trigger if you don't mind not having access to the 2 extra rim triggers.

      I am watching EBay looking for some deals on PD-7's, as these do work on the Aux 11/12 inputs for both triggers.

        Thanks for the link and the settings information for the BP80. Works great now. Only thing I had to different is set the threshold up higher on the A trigger. I was hoping I could use the BP80 with only one input; but I am still happy with it, it does give me two triggers together without have to mount two separate ones with two separate cords.
