  • DTX502 + AQUARIAN ONHEAD PED

    Hello Everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone has tried the YAMAHA DTX502 MODULE in congiunction with the AQUARIAN ONHEAD PEDS and if this can be a good solution or if there are any compatibility issues.

    Thanks in advance for sharing your experience

    That would be a bit overkill, no?

    You have a $250 module, and now you would spend about $700 on a shell pack?

    Well, I know that sometimes, we just gotta have it! so, why not? It is still cheaper than a set of TCS pads.

    But, all the pads should work as they are, single zone pads. You will not get rim sounds with those and the Yamaha module.

    If you are dead set on going with the FSR technology, go ahead, but I would save my money for some nice e-cymbals by using something like Drumtek mesh heads and Wronka, Intrigg or Quartz triggers.

      Thanks for your comments,

      I've read good things about the DTX502 module despite its low cost and great things about the ONEHEADS so I just gotta try this overkill combination.
      For the rim sound I was thinking to buy an inhead trigger sensor to connect to the inbox. I assume this solution should work with the Yamaha module.

      Nope, rim sounds will not work that way as Yamaha modules expect a piezo-switch trigger for the combination on head and rim sounds.

    Ok, so I should aim to a Roland BT1 or similar. Thanks

      The BT1 will give you an extra sound - at the expense of using an extra input - and also potential crosstalk issues.

        The good thing about the 502 is that the tom inputs can be split to add extra 1-zone inputs.
