  • Need help with a Hart Ecymbal X ride

    Ok, I got one today and I'm using an Alesis DM5 Module. I didn'tknow that this only had one input but it says that I can use a splitter and a stereo cable and it will trigger the bell and ride sounds? Is this true? Will I be able to do this with an Alesis DM5?

    Yes, you should be able to do this, but you are correct in that you need a splitter cable. You will also need to tweak the gain/threshold of the bell down to prevent it from triggering too much when you hit the bow trigger.

    So, to summarize, use a stereo cable from the cymbal to a splitter cable. Here's an example of a cable you could use:

    Also, Hart has some info on their Web site for settings:

    Hope this helps!

      Heh, speak of the devil. I bought the ride cymbal from you guys too! I got a y splitter from radioshack..but it doesn't seem to work, it might be the wrong kind I guess. Also, when I just plug in one cord to it, the bell doesn't seem to trigger the sound much.

        If anyone uses this cymbal with a DM5, could you please tell me what settings you use?

        Also, the Y Splitter I got from Radioshack was all mono, and the splitter on drumbalaya has a female stereo jack. Could that be the problem?

          That is _exactly_ the problem with some of the Radio Shack splitters. I finally went out and located some to carry because I could never find exactly what I was after at Radio Shack without having to also buy a bunch of other little tweenies to make it all have the correct connectors, etc. The goal is to get the stereo signal from the pad "split" into separate mono channels for the brain to work with.
