  • Problems: Hart Kit with TD-8

    I have a Custom A kit (stand up bass pad) with a TD-8 and just can't get everything working properly. I've been at it for six months! My issues:

    1) Toms: Sound clips when I strike the direct center of the drum (where the foam is). I can decrease the sensitivity and it helps somewhat, but then they drop beats on fast single and double stroke rolls. Would head tension affect this? I have tried tight, loose, and everything in between.

    2) Ride cymbal: I am using a stereo cord into the 11/12 aux channel. I get the bell sound at the very rim of the cymbal pad. I have adjusted crosstalk, but to no avail.

    3) Crash cymbals: randomly choke themselves when struck heavily.

    Any help would very GREATLY appreciated! Everyone says these drums are great, but I am frustrated and about ready to chuck it all in and get V-drums.

    call hart 850-654-1466 they will be able to help. I have all hart pads with a td-8 and they work great. I found that the head tension on the acusnare must be very tight to work right. I am sure with the proper settings you will fall in love with your hart set.


    good luck

            Hey crackie,

            For six months you say and no luck. I think you need to tweak the module a bit more to have the Hart products perform better. Do a search on scan time, retrigger cancel, mask time, threshold Ė all might need tweaking in order to dial in for good response.


            Tell you what; give me a phone number where I can reach you. I will call you from my studio. You get on your set and I will get on mine and I will go over what needs to be adjusted. This way you can get an immediate response from your TD-8 with Hart.

            If I canít help, then defiantly get in touch with the Hart people. Although they might not get on a drum set similar to yours and walk you through, but I will.

            Sounds good? Let me know through this forum or offline. I will be at my studio after 7:00 PST and I can call you then.
