    I use a TD-12 with a TD-6V for expansion.

    The TD12 has:

    Hart Pro Snare
    Hart Pro Bass
    Two 10" Hart Pro Toms
    Two 12" Hart Pro Toms
    1 14" Hart ECII Ride
    1 13" Smartrigger Crash
    1 14" Hart ECII crash
    1 Hart ECII Hi-Hat
    1 Smartrigger 14" China

    On the TD-6V
    Five 8" pads for Percussion stuff, usually timbales and bongos
    1 Hart Hammer Pad, usually for a cowbell
    1 Pintech Dingbat, usuallu used for tree chimes
    1 Hart 10" splash
    1 Smartrigger 16" crash
    1 Smartrigger 16" ride used for crash-ride

    Right now the TD-12 and TD-6V are daisy-chained via the mix-in jack method. All inputs are maxed out. I am going to add my Alesis DM5 to the TD-12 via MIDI as I grow my kit. I had the Alesis connected to the TD-6V via MIDI back when the TD-6V was my primary module. It also had a TD-3 connected to the TD-6V via mix-in jack. It all worked really well. When I got the TD-12 I didn't need the Alesis anymore...but I've been watering my kit and using some Miracle Grow and new stuff will sprout any time I am sure.

    Td-3 & Td-6

    Thanks for the reply!! What do you have triggered off of your TD6, and what do you have triggered off the TD3? Thanks again!
    All kits are a little different but my main kit is broken down like this:

    Toms:
    Tom 1 = TD-3 Tom 1 (sound is from TD-6 via MIDI)
    Tom 2 = TD-3 Tom 2 (sound is from TD-6 via MIDI)
    Tom 3 = TD-6 Tom 1 (edge trigger has cowbell)
    Tom 4 = TD-6 Tom 2
    Tom 5 = TD-6 Tom 3
    Tom 6 = TD-6 Tom 4

    Snares:
    Main Snare = TD-6
    Side/Piccolo Snare = TD-3

    Cymbals (from left to right):
    Cymbal 1 = TD-3 Crash 1
    Cymbal 2 = TD-3 Crash 2
    Cymbal 3 = TD-3 Ride
    Cymbal 4 = TD-6 Ride
    Cymbal 5 = TD-6 Crash 1
    Cymbal 6 = TD-6 Crash 2
    Cymbal 7 = TD-6 Aux

    BD (left to right)
    BD 1 = TD-6 BD
    BD-2 = TD-3 BD
    BD-3 = TD-3 Tom 3

    For HH I have the foot pedals next to each other on my left but the TD-6 one is mounted where you'd expect it (on the left) and the TD-3 is to the right of the snare. I usually have the TD-3 HH clutched.

    I do have some other jazz kits I play where the toms are not high to low like this setup. I designed one kit on my TD-3 to kind of go along with my favorite VEX kits I have for my TD-6.

    It's a lot of experimentation. Hope this helps. I have pictures of my setup (although it is constantly changing) here:

    Multiplel Modules

    Originally posted by Drum79 View Post

What would be the most cost effective way to run this through a module or modules(s)? I was thinking of getting another TD6, or TD-12, and link them together. I've heard you can use y connectors etc to get additonal trigger inputs? Ultimately I'd like the TD-20, but was looking what I could do in the meantime. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!!!!
    Wow! Sounds ambitious and expensive. I run a TD-6 and a TD-3. I trigger 6 toms, 7 cymbals (6 dual zone, 1 single zone), 2 snares, 3 BD, 2 HH & 1 Cowbell (edge trigger from TD-6 Tom 1). Sometimes I set the foot trigger of the TD-3 HH to cowbell. You're gonna want that cowbell.

    Part of it is MIDI and part I just run through a mixer. I only have mesh pads on my snares. The rubber ones are okay for now on the toms. I actually like the KD-8 better than the mesh BD.

    I'm looking at getting a TD-12 sometime but my next buy will be a sampler to MIDI with my kit or an SPD-S. Haven't decided yet.

    Getting a second module is all kinds of fun. Especially when you start getting into MIDI.

    *Edit* - I have this on the MDS-20 stand and a separate PDP stand for two toms and two cymbals. For all the stuff you want to do, you need to either get some cymbal stands or upgrade to a beefier stand.
