    I have just bought a new set of td8 k's and have set up as instructed, (i am a learner at all things technical!!). Whatever i try and do, whenever i hit the rim of the toms i get a crash cymbal! This sounds nice but its not what i want. Can anyone help please?

        The answer to your next question will probably be: no, there are no separate rim triggers on the toms.

          I've amended the settings on "crosstalk" but i'm still getting the cymbal sound, I'm going to move the cymabal to a different part of the frame and see if that helps. Any further suggestions are appreciated, thanks.

            I would suggest unplugging the offending crash cymbal... if that stops it triggering when you whack the toms, then crosstalk is your problem. If it still triggers - then maybe you have a faulty module.

            And - a simple solution is to not hit the rims of your toms! They are single trigger anyway... My 3rd tom triggers my ride if I hit the rim hard enough, but I try not to hit it as I like my ride just as it is.

            One more thing - it is the crosstalk of the crash that you want to raise, nothing to do with the tom.

            HTH,
            Mike.

                Thanks for all the help, problem now solved. I know I shouldnt hit the rims but i'm just getting used to the v drums and i am taking a while to get the feel of them and getting my set up right. I think they are superb, thanks again.
