Question about Yamaha Dtxpress Iv Special Electronic Drum Set

1 Answer

One of my cymbals just stop working, i've unplugged it from the cymbal, turned the amp off and on, restarted the system and nothing seems to be working. I did unplug it from the "brain" i believe, (i just bought this electric kit 2 days ago so i'm still learning everything) and when i would plug it in, it would make the noise of the cymbal i'm using. but once i hit the cymbal, it doesn't work. any suggestions?

Try these:

- change the interconnection cable between the cymbal and the "brain" unit, if the problem goes away, you have a bad cable.

- if the problem persists, see if that particular cymbal works well on another input of the "brain" unit, if it does, you have a problem with the input on the "brain unit", this will require servicing if the unit still has a warranty, otherwise you should first check the solder contacts on the input that doesn't work (also check for dirt /oxydation on the plug contacts and clean if necessary).

- If that particular cymbal won't work when you plug it into any "brain" cymbal inputs (it's basically a piezo trigger so it should work on other inputs), then you have either a broken wire on the piezo trigger or on the cable connector in that cymbal (it should be possible to resolder), or the piezo trigger itself is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I hope you can find out what troubles your drum kit.

I just got this keyboard and want to hear the program # 110 Upright Bass 1 and its Ride Cymbal; I hear the bass, but not the cymbal. The sound is listed in Appendix B on B-14 in the manual. Thanks!


Verify the sound in headphones directly from the unit. The cymbal MAY be panned to one side or the other and will require higher frequency response than some of the piano notes.

WHEN I STRIKE THE BASS DRUM, THE CRASH CYMBAL SOUNDS AT THE SAME TIME....EVEN WHEN NO CYMBAL IS CONNECTED TO THE INPUT JACK.


If you leave an input open they MAY cross couple... try plugging a set of headphones into the cymbal input jack... this will ground the cymbal input... then see if you still get the cymbal sound... IF you STILL get the sound, then the multiplexor that scans the input has a problem and you need to take it for repair. Repair on the surface mount boards is not a DIY without proper tools and skills. If the grounding stops the cross coupling, then you MAY have a problem with the cymbal or its cable.

Well the Roland td-4s is a superb kit. I've only had it for a few weeks now and the only issue im having is with the ride cymbal. It is a CY-8 cymbal that came with the set and it is dual triggered, but...


It sounds like the sensor is bad in the unit... If you have only had it a few weeks, exercise your warraaanty for replacement. Repairing the piezo sensor is NOT really a DIY project.

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'm not familiar with this kind of keyboard, but it is almost certainly that you have 2 parts (2 instruments) layered together. In this case a bass and a cymbal. This is a feature, not a malfunction of every multitimbral keyboard. Multitimbral means you can play more than one instrument at the same time. This is good as you can create some nice fat sounds, but put the wrong instruments together and you'll have the problem you're experiencing. My suggestion is that you read what the manual says about layering or mixing parts. There you should find instructions on how to turn one of the instruments off. You can also try to google the words "how to parts layer (or sound layer, or combine sounds) on the Yamaha S80". Good luck.

The cymbal is almost broken... I need a new one!


There is a SLIGHT chance the cymbal could be SILVER (hard) soldered if it has a crack, however it porbably should just be replaced.

Note that soft soldering will not work as it would be vibration lossy and the cymbal would not ring. Same probllem trying any adhesive products.
