Question about Activision Video Game Consoles & Games
This is common on world tour kits, the kit itself is of very poor quality. As a matter of fact, my orange symbol registers a hit once every 5 or 6 hits :/
~Anyway, you can try fixing this by removing the symbol from kit, and unscrewing the plastic protector that is concealing the metal sensor.
~You should see 2 wires glued down to the sensor. One is glued to the OUTER ring, the other is glued to the INNER ring. Pay very close attention to this.
~Pull the first wire out from the glue and try to clean away as much of the glue as possible.
~Strip some of the plastic off of the wire, about 6mm will do.
~Either A) re-glue the wire down making sure it has much more exposure to the sensor, OR...
B) Take tape of your choice (duct tape or gaffa tape works well) and tape the wire down to the sensor, making sure it is ONLY touching the ring it is supposed to.
~Repeat this process for the other wire.
~Replace plastic covering and test the symbol. It should work perfectly. If it is still unsensitive, you can have RedOctane send you a MIDI cable to run the drum sensitivity tuner program to increase the sensitivity. Alternatively, you can take some more tape and run it from one side of the symbol (the under-side) to the other, and crossing over the top of the sensor. This increases it's sensitivity by allowing vibrations to carry along a wider area.
Hope this helps you :)
