  • Sensitivity Bleed

    I have a V-Drums Studio Kit.
    The PD7 hi-hit trigger is on the side frame and the PD7 tom-tom trigers are on the front frame. The Hi-hat seems to produce the first PD7 tom-tom sound as well as the hi-hat sound. It sounds as though you're hitting both at once.
    I have tried playing with the sensitivities, but the vibrations still seem to pass over to the first tom-tom trigger.
    When I remove the tom-tom trigger from the frame all is OK
    Any suggestions???
    Thanks for the expert help... let's keep it up

    Perhaps you should raise the treshold setting from the tom tom as a result of which it only sounds when you hit on it.

    Ever tried to put foam into the hardware tubes? Perhaps it helps.

    Putting the hi-hat or tom pad to another tube perhaps also helps.

      Try raising the crosstalk 10 or 20 points on the pad. Also stuff packing peanuts in the tubes to cut down on vibrations transfering through the rack frame.
