  • Snare rim shot problems


    I face few difficulties with snare rim shot:

    First, in the manual it is written that I can hit only the rim at the left side of the snare pad. What do all right hand drummers do? -is the only solution is to turn around the snare pad?

    Second - when I hit the rim, I get the two triggers simultaneously most of the time? - is there any way to program the system such that either snare sound or rim sound is triggered?

    Third - regarding the technique of hitting the rim - any recommendation for a crosstick hit (should I keep/lay my hand down on the mesh head?) ?

    Thanks, Metofef

    This has got to be one of the toughest things about e-drums. Here's what I have found because I like using cross-stick a lot:

    1. The stock TD-10 cross-stick sounds suck; you gotta have the TDW-1 to get good sample sounds and response. The TD-6/8 are so-so as well, but better than the stock TD-10 IMHO.

    2. Rather than playing with the butt of the stick on the head and hitting the stick on the rim, I found I get better response when I place the butt end of the stick _on the rim_ and then hit the _other rim_ with the point end of the stick and do NOT touch the head area. This helps to minimize the trigger of the head sound so the cross-stick sound can come through a bit better.

    3. I have experimented with cutting away a portion of the rubber rim, but it doesn't make a huge difference as near as I can tell. I was hoping for better response, but I didn't find it. If you have a cracked portion of your rubber rim, that's a perfect excuse to give it a try since you'll probably replace the entire rim anyway (Roland won't sell just the rubber strip).

    Hope this helps!
