  • Having problems with CY5 cymbal

    Hi, I am using a TD3 module and have tonight bought a CY5 to replace my PD8 as hi-hat. I plugged it in using the cable that was in the module (as its the only one I have) and turned it on. I set the trigger input to CY as it says in the manual, but am only getting edge shots, without any sensitivity.

    I cannot use the bow (it doesnt even register a hit on the module) and have to strike it pretty hard for anything to sound (causing xtalk which I'm havig problems in fixing)

    Anyone got any advice for me? Roland are closed over the weekend and I really wanted to use this tonight!

    Firstly, are you using a TRS (stereo) cable?
    If so, it could be that the jack is not plugged COMPLETELY into the CY5.
    Sometimes you think it's in, but it requires a hard push for it to snap in completely.

      cable is the same that came with the kit, i just swapped the drum head. I've checked the cables too and they're all pushed in firmly. It still doesnt recognise the bow and still wont play a slight tap.

        I think it's possible that you changed another input to CY trigger type instead of the hi-hat. Double check trigger types for all your pads.

          Interestingly, I downloaded the TD-3 manual, and of all the trigger types it says it handles, the CY-5 is not on there. Yet, all the new TD-3 kits ship with it.
          Strange.

            Yep, the TD-3 manual was printed a couple of years before the CY-5 came along. It's covered in the CY-5 manual though.

              I'm sure it's the TRS issue. This happened to me with my Hart Ride. I moved and when I set up the drums, I could not figure out what was going on with the bell. They worked perfectly before I packed them up, then all of a sudden there are all these problems. I don't know if I am too late in answering this, but what the hell. Make sure the cable is a stereo cable or you will not get dual triggering no matter what type of pad or module you have or what settings you use. It's easy to tell. When you look at the plug end the stereo cable has two insulation rings and the mono cable only has one.
