  • cymbal edge not sensitive enough

    Lightly striking the edge actually triggers the bow sounds on all of my cymbals. Adjusting sensitivity and edge ratio haven't helped. I'm thinking it's just the cymbals themselves and there's no tweaking that will fix it. Thought I would post in case someone else has run into this and knows how to remedy it.

    It's a switch you're striking there. If no contact is made while striking (switch still open) there's no way you can trigger the edge. So yes, it's a mechanical/hardware issue.

      I was afraid of that. Cheers for the quick reply and info.
