    Cool. Is that a dtxtreme ii? Friend of mine had one of those, lovely kit. I liked the big pads. Those red knobs for tuning are cool too.

      Yes it is. I got her back in 2011 from the original owner. I don't run the whole set-up as some of the original pads have issues. My plan is to replace all the tom pads with my Pearl RT kit and DIY triggers. I haven't got a chance to do this yet.

      The red knobs work real well when the module isn't transmitting MIDI and running stand-alone. I use the module to trigger everything in my Computer where I run Superior Drummer which has been seriously expanded. I haven't found out how to use the knobs in Superior, which might not happen. I would like to eventually sell off the iis and get a iii but I do love the sampling that the module can do.

        The iii's can actually be updated to dtx-900 specs.... - Just a lil' hint!

          I've read this on the Dtx boards and have been drooling over this fact alone. Superior has maps for the iii which will allow for faster work flow as I can't save and recall all the triggers from the iis. I have to make Superior re-learn the kick and the rest of the 3-zone pads even with a saved preset map. I don't mind this as much mainly due to the fact, that it's kind of handy for experimentation.

          My focus aside from the module has to be the triggers. Unless someone knows a tutorial on replacing the TP-100 piezo?

            Then again, they both have several years of motoring on their clock already (2010 for the 900, and 2008 for the iii's, respectively), just as a note of caution of course...

            Seeing that the lower-midrange 500 became the 502, featuring newest triggering-technology and an added sampling-option (...at this price, already!) rumours have arisen that we may see an updated versions of the 700 and 900 modules too, in the near future!

            We enthusiastically named them '702' and '902', for the time being! - Will be thrilling to see, if something like this will be announced at NAMM or Musikmesse this year, ...or if we will have to wait until NAMM 2015!

            I hope not!

              No idea if this is even possible - I know on a lot of rubber pads it is buried right inside thr rubber and hence - practically- un-replaceable.

                You should be able somehow to 'skin' the rubber, replace the broken piezo, and put the rubber back on.
                In a similar way you would with a Roland CY/Yamaha PCY cymbal!

                  I haven't found a way. The KP-65 was somewhat easy to replace the piezo, however eventually I had to take defeat when the outside rubber couldn't be replaced. It was dented pretty bad and a new KP-65 was $60. I wish they did have a way to buy just the rubber for the KP-65.

                  Although I was going to get the KP-125 and then settled on the DIY set-up due to major noise issues.

                    I need to find a better way to use my SPD-11 with Superior. For some reason running MIDI it doesn't want to play nice. Right now I only use the stock sounds of the SPD-11.
