    Welcome!

    I don't think there's any way to use the ride/bell cables for separate cymbals on a TD-9, because there are no separate trigger settings for the second input and the bell input almost certainly expects to get its velocity signal from the ride input.

    Adding a ride cymbal to TD-9KX

    Hi Everybody,

    I got a TD-9kx for Christmas from my wife (she's the best). Been a long time since I played drums and had always had the urge to play since my teen years.

    Anyways, had a question on the ride/crash combo that come with the kit. I know there is two extra ports that I can use for future expansion but I have plans for those already.
    Would it be possible to remove one of the 1/4" jack off the ride/crash combo that came with the kit, then add a seperate ride cymbal and connect the 1/4that I removed to the new ride. I would use the crash/ride cymbal just for a crash.

    I hope I made sense and very happy to be here with you masters.

    Damn, I just noticed that I did not post my own seperate thread, sorry to the original poster.

    Take care
    Ron

    I thought that any new pads had the cymbal stopper included with the cymbal. I didn't know they included cables.

    Thanks everyone.

    But don't forget the cymbal mounts. Roland mounts are nice, but there are others that are quite a bit cheaper. You will just nee the small ends that prevent the Roland cymbals from rotating.

    Also note that if you buy Roland's cymbals, they come with the cable...dont know if that is true about the Yammies, but i would ask first before laying out the cash on extra cables....

    oh and welcome to the forum from a fellow td 9er!

    also as a by the by, remember you can assign ANY sound to any pad...so if you suddenly need a 4th tom, you can always assign one of the extra cymbals to have a tom sound...it would FEEL weird, but necessity is the mother of invention....

    yes
    Which pads would be best CY-8's or CY-14's?
    CY-8's are the lowest end of the Roland cymbal line.
    If you have the cash, CY-14's would be the better choice.
    Or check out the Yamaha PCY135 & PCY155 cymbals

    New TD-9KX for Christmas...help?

    Hello everyone!

    I've been watching the forums for sometime as I am a huge fan of v-drums. And Santa just brought me a new TD-9KX yesterday! Needless to say I was stoked!

    Anyhoo I have searched the forums for this question except it wasn't really answered as best as I could tell. Hopefully someone has a setup that I want and could tell me what would be best.

    On the TD-9 we have 2 1/4" inputs for expansion. I am wanting to add 2 cymbal pads on to it. As far as drum pads go I am good (for now ). I am not worried about "losing" the ability to add anymore drum pads.

    So how would I go about doing this?
    Can I use stereo 1/4" cable for dual triggering?
    Which pads would be best CY-8's or CY-14's?

    After all the research and drooling over these for a long time I don't know where the answers to these questions are...

    Thanks for viewing...
Working...
