  • New Cymbals on a TD-6V

    I just got two new cymbal for my frankensteined kit. I got them from Field Electronics, an 18" 3 way ride, and a 14" crash. I like their feel a lot, but I can't get certain aspects to work right, after some experimentation, I'm leaning towards that it's the way the module is set up, but I don't know how to fix it.

    My understanding is they should work almost exactly like a Cy-15. I can't get the bell to trigger on the ride or the choke on the crash. The cables are stereo and they work on the snare no problem. No matter what I do, I never see the other field change on the edit kit field. I switch to a PD-80, the rim doesn't change the field, I switch to a PD-9 and I can get the rim to show up (I can see it change from RD:H11 to RD:R11). So I figure I just don't have something set correctly but can't figure it out from the manual. What am I doing wrong? Is this a piezio/piezio vs. piezio/switch issue?

    Please Help!!!!!!!!!

    thanks

    This one would be hard to answer. Just a few have bought these cymbals from posts on the forum. So we really don't have much knowledge on the actual build or set up procedure. You should definitely contact Field though.

    On the crash, my guess is that the cymbal is a piezo/switch type. So CY-6 or CY-8, or CY-14 .... even PD-9 like you tried should be the correct pad type to set this to for starters. Why your choke doesn't work I don't know. The ride requires 2 stereo cables I assume. So you would need to plug into the ride input and another input.... choosing trigger types for both inputs... CY type prolly. Then choose the instrument assignments for each input. RD instrument for the bow. RDE instrument for the Edge. And RDB instrument for the bell.

    Like I say ... Field should be able to dial you in on his set up though.... he built em...

      Just in case someone was wondering what the problem was, it's the module. The field electronics cymbals only work on certain inputs. I got it to work on the snare, and Mr Field confirmed I needed one of the newer modules for it work well. I can get the functionality I wanted by swaping the ride input and the Tom3/4 input on the TD-6V. But I really want a TD-20...
