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 :)

The guitar syncs the same was a regular controller does.

There's a tiny sync button near the XBox button on the guitar. Press that, and then the sync button on your Console.

My guitar hero world tour drum kit is broken


If you know how to solder, you can resolder the wire back onto the connector. I just did that tonight actually. the orange cymbal has a white wire and a black/bare copper wire. You can cut open the male connector [I use an exact-o knife along the underside mold line] (one side only) so you can just slide the wires/connector back into it. The white would solder onto the base of the male connector. The bare copper thats wrapped around the white one is the black/bare copper wire mentioned above. This one is soldered to the tip [the solder point inside that small black plastic piece] of the connector. Once you have it soldered, just slip the male connector rubber piece back into place and use some super glue to glue back together.I wrap it in electrical tape just so its definitely secured. If wire length is an issue, simply solder some wire extensions before soldering to the male connector/plug.

My guitar from world tour wont work with rock band? can i fix it?


The Guitar Hero: World Tour guitar controller isn't compatible with Rock Band. They are made by different developers and to boost sales of their own controllers, each has different software for their controller. I think the only controller that does work is the Rock Band drums. They work with both games, but a World Tour controller is unlikely to work with Rock Band.
