    replied to Kd-9 compatibility
    This is exactly what I was thinking. The KD-9 is as simple as it gets: single piezo wired to a quarter inch TRS output jack. The manual for the KD-9 is lacking technical details of the wiring, but I doubt the KD-9 uses a balanced connection. Rather, the unbalanced piezo signal likely appears on one...

    replied to Snobbery towards electronic drums
    Interesting discussion. I think a musician of reasonable skill makes great music on whatever instruments they choose. All instruments have limitations and musicians learn how to work around those limitations. Consider early synthesizers. In many respects, early synthesizers were extremely limited...

  • Adding to the MG finish discussion. I have three CY-15R-MG cymbals and I've got a bunch of other MG cymbals (crashes and hats). These all get played a lot. I've not had any problems with the finish coming off. The cymbals all look pretty much as they did brand new, with the exception of stick marks....

  • JmanWord: Yeah, the BT-1 works very well. It does a great job at what it is designed to do. It would be nice to see Roland offer an updated version with a physical switch (with internal switching), allowing easy changing of modes, from Membrane and Piezo to Piezo Only. I'm using a module that supports...

  • tivi,

    Hey, I just wanted to apologize in case my post came across as devaluing your Yamaha suggestion. I re-read my post just now and it comes across somewhat heavy handed. Sorry about that. All I meant to do is point out the Yamaha is no longer made and underline unique features of the...

  • Bingo. This is exactly how I ended up with two BT-1 units in my setup. I considered building DIY, but when I saw the BT-1, I thought, "it's already built and gets me 99% to where I'm trying to get". I grabbed two, configured them, and got back to playing drums. This was a good solution...

  • Problem is, Yamaha hasn't made that pad in a long, long time. So yes, your note "if you can buy one", is apt. Solutions like the BT-1 are more compact, address tight mounting situations, mount to another pad (like a snare pad), and address cross-talk. While the BT-1 is only a single zone,...

  • I use two BT-1 units (not the Pintech units) and I don't split dual zone inputs on Roland modules. The inputs are not designed to be split. At best, when splitting, you can achieve semi-functional channels; each channel only triggers when the other side is not being triggered. Personally, I'd rather...
