  • Pads are excessivley ringing when playing through a keyboard amplifier.

    Hello. Not sure where to post this.
    I am using a TD-9KX2 plugged into a keyboard amp. When I play the kits, I get excessive ringing out of the TOM pads, especially the 2nd and 3rd toms. The amp is a fairly new Behringer 300 watt and I don't think that's the problem, because it works fine with other inputs, like MP3.
    The sound is perfect thru headphones, but definitely different thru the amp. I tried just plugging them into some 200-watt 2.1 computer speakers but get the same effect.
    I don't know what to do about this, can anyone help? Certainly others have experienced this. Thanks.

    different amps will resonate more at different frequencies...i get ringing on my 3rd tom using my PA so i simply turn the volume down on that pad when running through my PA

      It sounds a bit like you were running into problems with your room's own resonance-frequency. Try to see if you can insulate the walls or corners with some acoustic-foam or something similar!

        Do you plug the amp in the phone jack ? or in the line-out of the module ?
