  • SpiritualMutt you resurrected an old thread from 2009.
    Assuming you are talking hhc for a Roland module, here is an idea using the Interlink 406 (ADA-1075) square force-sensitive resistor (FSR) .
    You may also want to look at this sticky thread .

    haggis-man He has switches intended for bell.. but bell won't vibrate enough probably to bent it like the edge, worth trying though..

    haggis-man thanks for sharing. I think I will give it a try .. - I wonder if the same approach will work for the bell (putting the switch underneath) - most likely no I guess..
    Myrk- Now with a 20" L80 available, do you think a 20" version of the edge switches can be made?

    Cheers JPsquared!
    I didn't intend to argue or fight against a word u or anyone else used or to prove something and apologize if it sounded like that in any way - I try to keep my posts pure informative and with positive intention always.

    ... And run it in Yamaha mode in Mimic to spare a channel (I assume aD5 has dedicated 2 jacks for Roland mode in it's DB25 snake anyway) ?
    You certainly can create an easy to do Y adapter .. I actually already did one for my Versatrigger setup .. the ring of the jack coming from the edge channel...

    Yes it is a single piezo mounted around the middle of the cymbal.
    But there is no FSR (force-sensitive resistor) in the cymbal.
    The membrane switches used for the bell and edge can be look at like a simple on/of devices.
    When you hit over the area, the two surfaces of the switch touch...

    We completely hi-jacked the thread ..


    You mean put that free-floating suspension to the snare and use the bracket on it to mount a L-rod and then the actual trigger/cowbell to it? Or stick the piezo to the free-floating suspension somewhere and hit over the free-floating suspension...

    They did not intend to market it to e-drummers, it is intended for a-drummers that want to add a discrete trigger to trig some FX with their acoustic kit.. just like the BT-1 but more compact and also serves as the non-e rimriser for x-stick sound improvement.. for that it is perfect I guess - nice...

    The bell sensor on that cymbal is a switch, so talking frequency in relation to the bell detection is inapplicable. Probably the interval for the switch to remain in closed position to be treated as a bell event in the Roland modules is hardcoded longer in the detection algorithm then in the other modules...

    Yes interesting video, but IMO on a converted a-shell, the slightest impact to a tension rod would trigger the rim zone immediately.
    Why would you disable the original rim piezo? In general it works good for rimshots, not as good for x-stick. That with a Roland module. Mimic may and probably will...

    It will definitely trigger the rim zone of the drum it is attached to. But the normal version of this product can still benefit an e-drummer, as the rubber rim silencer that we put on the rim to kill the stick noise when hitting it degrades the rim detection quality a lot (rubber is an anti-vib material...

    replied to A few questions regarding the pizeo foam cone
    in DIY
    "Im assuming^^^^ that more height -> more sensitivity" - Nope, the signal is produced when the piezo bends, so more height (of the cone above edge) -> more compressed the foam -> less accurately vibrations are transferred to the piezo = narrowed dynamics range, and if the compression...

    The problem can very well be electrical as I said, but that can certainly be easily measured. Are we talking one or many drums, all exhibiting the same behavior?
    For the protocol, 682 do not have the reputation of being an exceptionally good triggers as far as I am aware from reading reviews here...

    in DIY
    Looks ok to me. If that orange cone is not a total s**t (e.g. super soft), then what's left is If one of the soldering points on the piezo cracked and the wire stays there kept only by the glue on top / sticky double sided tape, the effect is very similar to what you describe. Especially if the wire...

    I forgot about that - meanwhile you can get some furniture leg pads (foam or evn felt) and stick one ore more on top of the cone(s) to make it contact the head again. It will make the things playable at least while you are then comfortably finding the best way to source a replacement.

    That's the problem, it's not straight forward to precisely cut and shape foams .. especially in this case where you can't tweak the height of the platform (I believe).
    But for $1 it worth nothing to try.
    The best result I was getting by initially rough shaping the foam with scissors and...

  • A Latex pillow does very good job in the kick, as it is relatively heavy (compared to other foam material) and elastic at the same time ..

    This does look quite bitten up and smashed. What SiliconD meant is that normally the top of the cone must be around 1mm higher then the edge of the shell, so that it is in contact with the head. "but I ran a flat piece cardboard across, and it was able to glide over without bumping in to the foam."...

    No DIY solution for Roland pads that will work as good as original cushions.
    Not sure you can tune the height of the cones so you will need the originals.
    $60 is a good price for 5 pads IMO - $12 vs $7.5 - just eat these $20ish and don't do experiments.
    Prior purchasing though, I would...
