  • didn't find any info anywhere, so i just toted the thing down to home depot and spent a solid 40 minutes there trying to wedge things into the multi 12. here's what worked:

    m5-0.8 x 14mm

    these are metric. don't bother with standard, nothing worked past a certain point. i went...

    replied to Rack or Stands?
    if it were just a stationary, set and forget thing, then a rack is fine. i did find my rack to be annoying and unwieldy to move around, especially with all the cables and such. just hated adjusting it, and setting it up/breaking it down was worse. as much as i dislike setting up stands, at least those...

    dtx multi 12 mounting screws/bolts- what size?

    sorry to make a new thread about this, but i thought it would be best to make this separate from my ongoing saga in case someone finds it useful down the line.

    i ordered a stand and a mount from kraft music- the ones that they would normally bundle with the dtx. i purposely avoided the...

    so the amazon shipment arrived, and wouldn't you know it? a third of the bottle had leaked out. so they let me keep it and sent out another. glad i didn't get the large one, because now i'll have more of this than i'll know what to do with.

    and now, the moment you've all been waiting for!...

    yup, even with my dumpy used laptop and decade-old interfaces, i still was able to run ez drummer 2 without latency. i wasn't playing it, though. i was just punching in midi with a pad. sounds great. can't see why anyone would rather have their module's sounds, for the most part. maybe this coming weekend...

    i looked around on some thing called "the internet" and it looks like people tend to use 303 aerospace protectant. or soap and water. part of me wants to order some on amazon, part of me wants to go see what pep boys has and some of me just wants to go at it with some brushes and sponges and...

    cleaning your drum pads

    is there a best way to go about this? i just bought some out of storage that are covered in dust and grime. wondering if there are some products or procedures i should avoid, as to not damage the rubber. i'm obviously not going to take them out and hose them down, but i figure a damp paper towel or...

    replied to Trying to decide on drumpad.
    i just went through a similar journey, so you can check my recent thread. but for your specific use; if you want to add your own loops, and have aux percussion sounds ready to go, i would think that the roland octapad might be the way to go, or then the spd sx. i guess it depends on what you prioritize:...

  • i could probably live with hanging the snare pad off the high hat stand if such a thing is possible. i'm just going to have to stare at everything i have for a very long time and see what's missing to make it work.

    i agree with the point about flimsy stands, but i was hoping that there...

    Crappy, flimsy stands or getting fancy with clamps

    OK, stay with me here. I was thinking about my mini kit. I got a stand for it and I think I want to add my old snare trigger, and I reserve the right to add a crash, too.

    but the idea is to stay small here. And with the stand for the Multipad, plus a high hat stand and a bass drum tower,...

    replied to assembling a mini kit
    interesting how we value things differently. here i thought the high hat would be the weak point. totally see your point now. loath to bring every single piece with me, but that's the only way to get the max out of this thing. without being able to change the sensitivity, it is hard to know what i can...

    appreciate the thoughts and those videos!



    that looks awesome! how stable is that setup? i assumed i'd just get the gibraltar stand and support that most vendors bundle with it, because even though it is a little pricey, the yahama is too, and it clearly sucks. you can see...

    replied to Refurbish my TD-10k, or buy a new TD-50?
    hi, dr nick!

    if you're having gremlin issues, a cheap way to take a stab at it would be some contact cleaner. i use deoxit d5. grab a patch cable or one of the leads from your set and give it a squirt, then work it in and out of all the i/o on your modules and triggers. i do this periodically...

    replied to Remo Falam Slam patch and accoustic noise
    lololol, i've done this before, but with my yamaha rubber kick tower. feels like you're playing with a turkey leg but it does cut the volume down some. and depending on how much you wrap around the beater, you have to account for how much larger and heavier the thing is with rolled up socks on it. and...

    i forgot to edit the post but part of why i'm afraid to buy used is the off chance that i simply hate the thing or the concept of a mini kit. not exactly a seller's market for a 10-year-old drum pad. though weirdly, they aren't blowing them out, either. guess that speaks to yamaha quality or market...

    replied to assembling a mini kit
    I did find it interesting (and telling, really) that even in positive reviews/ posts for the alesis, they still wouldn't recommend it as a mini kit over an octopad or multi 12. Which I find odd, if not baffling, but there it is. I also saw that most of the alesis sounds are one shots. Not sure about...

    i should take a closer look at the alesis. it is newer so there may be less in the way of real world info out there, but it seems like it could work. hard to think that something a decade younger could be worse. but i think i like the layout and extra pads of the yamaha more- i'd have to set this up...

    that was helpful, thanks!

    -interesting. i hadn't seriously considered the alesis as i thought it was more of a sequencer than an instrument (as it were), and it lacks a high hat out. but it does look neat, and it is a whole decade younger than these other guys, so maybe it warrants further...

    replied to KD180 vs KD-140-BC for Apartment
    i got yelled at enough to know it isn't tapping sounds but the impact noise. roland makes noise eaters, which are little absorbent risers you can place under your pedals to help mitigate it, but i'm not entirely convinced about those, though the logic is sound. as others suggest, you could make some...
