The Bass Drum Pedal of our Yamaha DTXplorer electronic drum kit has come to pieces. There are springs and washers everywhere and I don't know how to fix it. The instruction manual doesn't tell me. If you can help, thanks :)

Go to one of the suppliers. Most of them will have photos of the bass pedal assembly and if you can enlarge the photo, you should be able to figure how to assemble it.

Expect to find washers on shafts between things that rub.

The owners manual at:

Check on page 9 for example. While the photo isn't the greatest you can see where the spring is.

I just bought this kit and I'm watching the DVD Drumset 101 that came with it and it starts by saying to "lower" the bass drum spikes. They aren't even attached, I don't even know...


The "spikes" are the legs near the backside of the drum that keep it from rotating... Some actually have spikes that go into sockets and dig into the floor under the drum. The photo shows the legs. The drum pedal may have spikes and or a clip/clamp that grabs the nearside of the bass rim to keep the pedal from pushing the drum away.

Drum kit won't power up


Get a voltmeter and check the power to see if it is working at the plug. the voltage should be 12vdc. If you don't have a meter, just take the power adaptor to radio shack, or any electronics supply house.
They'll check it for you. below is a copy of the manual. Good Luck!

When hitting one drum, other drums are triggered... how do I fix that??


Usually there is a sensitivity parameter. Reduce the trigger sensitivity in the module. Refger to your user manual under "sensitivity".

I'm trying to use the pads of my Yamaha DTXplorer drum kit as triggers for the sounds stored on my Alesis SR-18 drum machine. I have seen that Alesis markets a trigger module of their own which they...


Actually, ONLY TWO pins are used in the MIDI cable. The data is sent serially at a 31.25KBit rate.
You probably need to "map" the ones that aren't working into the appropriate codes to trigger the SR-18 sounds.

You need to COMPARE the codes sent from the DTX to those needed by the SR-18.

There also may be options in the DTX for type of drum kit such as "Latin" and selecting one of those may have the mapping already done.

In the literature of each device will be a list of the MIDI codes the DTX generates and those required by the SR-18.

essentially the percussion codes are NOT standardized completely between devices... but there is usually a way to "map" them to make it work.

you need to determine what midi note the DTXplorer is using for the snare, kick and 3rd tom, and set the SR-18 accordingly, or vica-versa. the midi notes for each instrument has to be the same.

if you cannot change the midi note in either unit to make them correspond, you can download a "midi mapper" program (i think e-drum might be one), there is freeware available if you search CNet. with a midi mapper program, you would have to get a midi/usb adapter for your computer and rouite the midi signal through a computer. midi mapping software allows you to change the midi note, when the hardware itself is incapable of doing so.

I just bought the DTXplorer e-kit, and have set it up perfectly, but get no sound from hitting anything.


Test the amplifier with another sound source to make sure the amp is good. Use a guitar or anything to test.

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.
