    replied to jobeky low volume hihat
    In the photo of the underside of the hihat there is no cable going into the controller. There should be.

    Also the Jobeky controller is the same as the Goedrum controller that I have and I wouldnít have a felt as the interface between cymbal and controller - I think you need something solid...

    It works very well. Itís mounted at the top because thatís where the original vent was. Itís a 20Ē drum so the beater strikes above center and therefore closer to the trigger. Sensitivity is excellent with it responding from very light strokes to burying the beater into the head. The head is a Remo...

    replied to aD5 to mixer connection question
    I have an aD5 and an Allen & Heath Zed 6FX mixer. I havenít yet gone to the trouble of panning left everything but the kick, and the kick panned right (or vice versa) but if I did I would just use standard TRS cables to the first two channels on the mixer. The Zed 6FX is an excellent sounding mixer...

    I've just completed my first conversion of a cheap acoustic kit and I used Goedrum side triggers (from Amazon or eBay) and it was pretty easy. I removed the grommets from the air vents and drilled them slightly bigger to accommodate the jacks supplied with the triggers. The snare on my kit was also...

    Last night I moved the rim trigger to 90į from the head trigger and also placed it on a 3mm section of rubber. I also changed the aD5 setting to a mesh head.

    Problem solved. Thanks for the input guys.

    The snare head trigger is not quite as responsive as Iíd like but itís really...

    The piezos are wired up/connected correctly.

    The head piezo triggers correctly at any velocity. The rim piezo triggers correctly for rim shots and side stick but also sounds with very light taps on the head: so light that they're almost inaudible. For example if I drop the stick tip from...

    When I first installed the piezos the head was at 3 o'clock and the rim at 6 o'clock. As most dual trigger setups appear to have the two piezos close together I thought it might help to follow suit. It slightly improved.

    In both locations, rim shots and side-stick trigger very well.

    Unwanted rim triggering on metal snare

    In the last few days Iíve finished an A2E conversion of a kit I bought for £60. Iíve used Drum-tec rim silencers and Goedrum side triggers on all the drums and they are all working flawlessly. Except the snare drum.

    The module is my aD5.

    Itís a 14Ē metal drum and Iím using...
