SOURCE: The bass (kick) drum pad

If youve already tested the signal path and it works then your likely just dealing with a bad piezo inside the kick drum. The piezo is actually what detects the trigger. You could probolly replace it yourself it not hard typically just 2 solder joints but you'd have to buy the piezo. Call the manufacturer they should provide you with whomever distributs their parts locally to you.

My bass drum stopped working. The module wont pick up any signal and ive tried everything short of replacing it. Not sure if its the wiring the module or the drum sensor itself.. Everything else works just...


Verify the module by connecting a different pad to the bass drum and see if you can trigger the bass drum sound. This would test the module. Now connect the bass to a different input and see if it will trigger that input. SOME of the triggers have a very small potentiometer in them. I have seen vibration break this pot loose rendering the unit inoperative. Also some people have pushed a screwdriver into the pot too hard and broken it off. Once you know it is the bass trigger, open the unit and look for damage. The sensor is usually a piezo disk. These can break away from their attachment. Reattach with contact cement after cleaning the residue.

My kick sound has died out of the kit, when i press the button there isnt a sound so i assume it doesnt have anything to do with the cables or actual bass drum pad. any ideas?


My guess would be something faulty with the cable connector to the kick pad.
Source the faulty link by reconnecting the pad so that:
1. A tom pad triggers the bass drums sound 2. The kick pad triggers a tom sound 3. Don't use cable you use with the kick when searching for the fault.
This should tell you whether it's the pad, the bass drum channel or the cable that is at fault.
Hope that helps!

The Pearl BBC-1 bass drum masking plate does not fit the holes on my export bass drum


Your choices are few... get the correct plate, drill the one you have, or drill the drum.

I would opt to drill whichever part is the most replaceable which is likely the plate. Mark carefully an make sure it is square when you do so.

There is a piezo sensor behind the pad typically. This can be dislodged or damaged. FIRST check your cables and try plugging the bass into another inout and see if it will trigger that sound. If not, you will need to repair the bass pedal.

SOME pedals have a sensitivity control which is a tiny pot accessable through a hole... this too is easily damaged if wrong type screwdriver is used to adjust it.

be sure and check for a broken cable, especially near the ends.

When i strike the Bass Drum pedal, i sometimes get a cymbal noise also coming out of the kit. Its not the crash or ride cymbal i can hear, as when i look at the display, i can see a little bar to the right...


First thing to check is if the vibrations of the bass drum amplified MIGHT be triggering the cymbal pickup. Damp the cymbal pad with your hand and see if it still does it. If not, then shield the drumset from the amplified output.

If this does not prevent the problem look for a grounding problem of the triggers.

I have an electric triggered bass drum pad, and it will not trigger the sound through the machine unless I practically slam the pad the model is a KP65 bass drum pad, on a yahmaha DTXpressIV


Test the pad driving a different sound... If the pad is weak, the sensor probably came loose in it... They are a piezo disc usually like in older musical cards.

Some of the triggers have an adjustment pot that is very tender... ALSO there usually is a setting in the machine for sensitivity.

If this has just gone bad, it is likely the sensor came loose... repairable if one opens the pad...

Problems with DTXpress III special bass drum pad


If you are comfortable with working on it and the warrantee is up try taking the pad apart to see if the piezo element has come loose from its mounting or if the solder joint is loose. If that isn't the problem save your settings and initialize the set according to the instructions in your manual.
