    Look for the myrk switches on eBay (he's a member on here). I just bought some and they are working well, I'll post photos when done.

    replied to How good our v-drums really sound?
    Another 2c to say I don't think this is different e and a. If you are in a small venue where acoustic noise is an issue for the mix you need to mess round with playing with less dynamics, rods or some other sound attenuation on an acoustic set from your seat without being able to hear the room mix....

  • I think sticking anything to a cymbal is going to affect the sound so yes the l80s ambient noise is reduced to pretty much just a tap. They are "sharper" than rubber e-cymbals "thud" but about the same volume.


    If you still want an acoustic sound why not just...

  • I have just done l80s with stealth triggers into a mimic and I am very happy with them. It took minutes to install and set up was easy. I must admit I couldn't get the 3z ride working perfectly with my old Roland td11 module but I didn't try very hard knowing the mimic was coming....

    replied to Triggering or Micing Zildjian L80's
    I don't know the magnatrack, but I'll put in a vote for the stealth triggers. I installed these on l80s last week, it took less than half an hour to do hh , crash and ride, including drilling the lower hh for the cable routing and the triggering is excellent.

    I have just bought some myrk...

    replied to DIY HH stealth, fd7, L80 conversion
    in DIY
    I don't know about the fd9, I'd have to take one apart and look inside to see. The question is really about the physical interference of parts. To be honest the fd7 is super cheap, super robust, super simple inside and uses exactly the same trigger/sensor as the fd8 and I imagine the fd9. On this...

    replied to Mimic set up
    Well, set up was really easy. Had a problem with the kick until I realised the plug just wasn't fully inserted.

    I am a bit speechless though. This thing just sounds astonishing. I'm so glad I got this, it is awesome, I can't stop grinning!

    replied to TD-11 Edge/bow issue
    What cymbals are you using? Have you checked that the pad settings are correct?

    I had no problems with my Roland cymbals but the sensitivity of my diy cymbals is very different and requires fiddling to change cross talk between zones.

    replied to Mimic set up
    Super helpful folks thanks. I especially like the idea of cloning and experimenting once pads are settled to learn. The whole reason for the upgrade was lack of satisfaction with sound quality from my Roland so I'm Super excited about this!

    in DIY
    Hi Milos, Jerry sends out a 24mm rubber grommet and I used a 20mm hole saw to drill the lower cymbal then filed to fit the grommet. It makes surprisingly very little difference to the acoustic sound and obviously makes cable routing easy. I'll add a photo later.

    I have not quite got the...

    Mimic set up

    After 6 months of thinking about module upgrade I have a Mimic on the way and will be setting it up at the weekend.

    I have read the manual and have an OK understanding of the process I should follow with pad set up, but no real feel for or experience of nuanced pad set up. I have worked...

    Triggers are in place just not wired to the module in this picture. The stealth triggers are so easy to install on the L80s, it probably took me 5 minutes per cymbal. As you see they are almost invisible!

    DIY HH stealth, fd7, L80 conversion

    Having got some l80s and stealth triggers from Jerry (Jman; what a true gentleman and pleasure to buy from), the next job was to do a HH conversion. I bought a second hand fd7 (15) and a tama 310 stand.

    I think that this was a bit more work than the stand Jerry recommends as the legs...

    replied to Should i buy a td50
    I have no knowledge to add but will watch with interest. I am also thinking of a module upgrade for live playing. I discounted Roland as I preferred the sound quality of sample philosophy rather than the Roland electronic sound.

    I wasn't initially going to spend the cash on a mimic so...

    replied to EZD2 sounds through a drum amp
    Headphone cable from computer straight into aux input on your amp (assuming it has one) should be fine. You might need to make sure the headphone volume is not too high for the amp, if it is, the sound will be distorted, if so just reduce the headphone out volume and increase amp volume to compen...
