Hi, The snare pad came completely off, including the two wires, which were disconnected. Good sounding machine, but not very well made (footswitch jacks in particular). Any advice? Thanks!

Unscrewed the back of the drum set and took a look inside . The first thing I noticed was that they used some sort of silicone glue to attach the wires to the sensor. It became obvious to me that this was clearly interfering with the drum’s reception so here’s what I did (I encourage people to try this too, although I AM NOT AT FAULT if you screw yours up): 1. Unscrew the back of the drum set and SLOWLY remove the back piece.
2. Use some sort of sharp tool to remove the glue from the sensor. (I used a small knife)
3. Clean off the glue if you want, but there are two parts to the 3 sensors. There is the inside circle and the outer ring. (Make sure you remember which wire goes to which, because you have to reattach it to the same one of your set wont work.)
4. Strip down the wire a little bit so that there is more of the wire for the sensor to read.
5. Use electrical tape to tape down each wire to the appropriate part of the sensor. (While doing this, it is good to connect it to the Xbox to see if the drums are working properly. You’d hate to screw everything back in and find out something didn’t work right.)
6. Finally, be careful that you reattached everything properly and then screw everything back in.
7. Connect your controller and drum away!

How do I program snare pad to sound like a clap?


That would depend on the make/model of the pad and of the sound source, but in general, just asign the pad trigger out note number to match the clap sound note number on your sound source.

While playing through this amp I stepped on the channel changing footswitch and lost all sound from amp. all tubes and pilot light remained on but amp went silent. Disconnecting footswitch and cable f


Plug the guitar on the "power amp in" jack near the "presence" knob.
If you get sound, you have a problem on the preamp. If not, it´s probably on the power amp section.

Its a good start...

I have a RMP-5 Rhythm Coach. I cannot get any sound from the pad when I practice. Help


Hi, after doing a bit of googling it occurs to me that the internal speaker is ONLY for the metronome / click & not for the drum sounds themselves. You will need headphones or some external audio gear like your hi-fi system or oth r amp & speaker. I found this "The pad has 54 sounds in it (covering all parts of the drum kit but mostly snares), which are triggered when you hit the mesh head, but these can only be heard over headphones. The built in speaker is only used by the metronome sound (when there are no headphones attached) and then it only has a beep sound attached to it. However, plug in headphones and you get a variety of available click sounds including a proper ticking clockwork metronome." Hope that helps a little? Good Luck :-)

I have a Marshall mg100hdfx Head & Cab - The clean channel is on but when i hit the footswitch it is not changing to overdrive channel - please help


Sounds like either your "front-panel" switches are not set for channel switching or the footswitch's mechanical "Channel" switch is defective. According to the OM the "Channel Select Switch" on the front becomes inactive with the footswitch plugged in.

If disconnecting the footswitch causes this front-panel switch to operate properly then it has to be your mechanical switch in the footswitch. Repair of these footswitches are pretty simple provided you find a replacement and have soldering abilities.

Where does hihat control cord go


The hi-hat trigger goes into trigger #1. Using a footswitch will change the hi-hat trigger sound to a closed hi-hat. On page 8 of the user manual is the list of triggers and their assignments. Note that some new triggers from newer drumsets use TRS cables because they have two sensors within the drum head... Often the new ones have a rim shot snare trigger as well as a trigger for the mesh head. These newer different brand triggers would require special cables to be made to attempt to use them with the DM5. The DM5 is older technology now but is still useful.

A weak snare is a characteristic of these... The triggers are typically piezo discs that were often used in musical cards but those have now gone to using very flat little speakers... You may find some have been dislodged or broken loose... worth a look inside.

When I hit the snare drum harder than usual, it is making a different sound. Is that supposed to be?


I believe I have found a good part of the solution to this problem. I also had this problem in the snare. The problem was so severe that, when pulled, the snare support, without giving him any beat, the sound appeared. I took courage and opened the snare.Ao open, I realized that a yellow adhesive used to glue the trigger wire had melted and the other touching the trigger. I think this must have happened at some point prior to my purchase that equipment has been under excessive heat and then drained to such a glue. Simply cut the little wire glue "connected" two triggers, and closed the snare ....... ready: is working perfectly.

You can not play these drums live the spill of the fold back drum fill bin sets of the snare trigger ive turned down the sens on the red box still doesnt work a big waste of money i need to talk to...


With this kit being acoustic-electric, the only advice I can give is to disconnect your snare trigger and mic the snare. It's either that, or your snare trigger is faulty. A new trigger is going to cost about the same as mics, but mics won't hit your snare, making you sound inexperienced. For miking the snare, you'll want to get two mics, placed on the top and bottom head. Try to position them on the same spot on the rim to avoid voicing problems. Studio drummers do the same thing when recording.

For playing this way live, you'll want to use either the main PA, or run to a separate mixer so you can control the volume of the snare in relation to the rest of the kit.

Hope that helps!

When i use my epro live drums on live gigs i sometimes get no sound when i hit the pads specialy the snare pad


Hi,
Not used this kit inparticular, but if there is a main "brain" or sound mudule, check sensitivity settings. If not, take the pad to the store where you got it as the internal sensor may have gone, or the link lead may be faulty.
