  • Solved the Hart Ride 2-Jacks Problem (I think)

    We all know the TD-10 doesn't have enough jacks. I was dissapointed to find out that I'd have to use two jacks to use the ride and bell of my Hart ECymball II ride. Well, I think I found a solution:

    1. Plug the ride in as usual.

    2. Plug the bell into a Y-adapter, and share the bass drum input. The Bass input is stereo, but you don't need the second chanel. Set the second chanel to the ride's bell.

    My cymbal comes tomorrow. I plan on trying it then. I'll let you know how it goes. Anyone see any problems with my logic before I waste my time?

    Thanks.

    If it's like the TD8, then the bass drum jack has 2 piezo inputs (with the second unused) so it should work fine. Just make sure your Y adapter has dual mono jacks to a stereo plug.

        Jgel,

        I certainly will. Unfortunately, they didn't show up on Friday, as I'd hoped. I'll let you know as soon as I check it out.

        In addition to posting how this worked out, I'm planning to post a full review of all the cymbals I have. I'm replacing the orginals with a Roland Hi-hat (done), Visu-lite China (done), Hart Ride and 2 Hart Crashes (waiting on them).

          Thanks Poppy, I can't wait to hear. I was thinking about getting the Hart Ride as well as the Visu-lite. Why did you go with the Hart ride over the Visu-Lite. I am still trying to make up my mind on that one. Also, I want to replace the High- Hat and thought that the Visu-lite looked nice, is the Roland that good?
          I alos just got 2 CY6's, you might want to get one or more....at $79.95 they are incredible.
          :rolleyes:

            the visulite dual zoned ride is excellent. It swear it gives me positional sensing (play closer to the bell and you get a mixed beel/ride sound if you set it just right)and feels and acts like real ride

              Barry,
              Do you have a TD-10 or a TD-8 or what? Let me know. I am still not sold on either yet, but I was leaning towards the Hart.

                The main problem I have with the Visu-lite is the colors. I prefer something that looks more like a real cymbal. I play in a metal band, so anything I can do to look a little more "authentic" can only help me. I didn't mind going with the Visu-lite for a China, since it's kind of an odd instrument anyway. At least compared to a basic ride and crash.

                I think the Roland hi-hat is that great, but I've never compared them to the others.
