On dual trigger devices makee SURE you use a three conductor cable that has a tip-ring-sleeve connectors both ends. This is similar to a 1/4 inch stereo cable. Single trigger devices only require the tip-sleeve type cable. It is common to have dual triggers on the snare and in your case on a cymbal and often users use the cable intended for the dual trigger on one of the single trigger ones and vice versa so the dual doesn't work.

    thanks for the reply. i used the propre cables and connections. it is not that the bell is not working, i have to hit it extraordinarily hard

    MOST of the boxes for drum generation have sensitivity parameters you can adjust to match the triggers you have. I don't have the user manual for your model box as you mention only the cymbal itself. Whatever box it ties to must be for a dual trigger on that channel, otherwise you would have to hit the bell hard enough to fire the regular trigger to get anything out. As a TEST, I would try connecting it to the dual trigger input that the snare attaches to... now does the bell trigger the snare inputs (of course they will be snare sounds)... If it does, the problem would be with the box or possibly setup within it, not the cymbal. First thing would be to verify the input you are connecting to is in fact a dual trigger input. Since users are mixing and matching triggers with different boxes these problems crop up.

If i hit the ride bell, the tom 3 sound will come out also if i hit the crash bell, the tom 1 sound will come out also any idea how to fix it? many thanks


Is the 9ch snake cable correctly connected? TOM 3 should be plugged into the 4th input and TOM 1 should be plugged into the 2nd input. (1- SNARE, 2 -TOM, 3 -TOM, 4-TOM, 5-RIDE, 6-CRASH.........)

My KD-8 bass drum pad will now only trigger if it is hit really hard- I've tried altering the sensitivity at the brain to no avail any ideas please ? Thanks


SOME of these have a small potentiometer inside the pad part... The pot is VERY fragile and one needs a small jewler's screwdriver to adjust. You have to be careful as excess pressure on the screwdriver breaks the part off the circuit board inside. The access hole is only about 1/8 inch diameter.

When i hit one pad it get the noise of the single pad i hit plus another pad.. is like I hit two pads at the same time!


A couple of things to check:
Make sure you have a SOLID surface to place the unit since if the surface bounces it may false trigger another pad. See if there is a sensitivity adjustment... sometimes they have setting for playing with hands or with sticks, The sticks one is less sensitive and less subject to false triggering.

I have the Simmons SD9K electronic drum kit. I really love it, but I have two seperate issues. First, I sometimes get a snare pop out of the blue while playing a beat and sometimes just after I stop...


With the sensitivity set very high, you might be getting false triggers from static discharges. It sounds like your snare trigger is either bad or possibly the cable from it may have a problem as you should NOT have to set the sensitivity so high.
It will take an oscilloscope to test the pad unless you can find a system to do a sensitivity comparision. The second problem regarding the recording/overdubs I cannot help you solve.

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.

Hey, I have had used the Roland PD8's for a while but recently 2 of mine have just stopped working. Maybe I hit them too hard but I'm not sure because the rest of my pads work. One will work if I hit it...


Check the connections on the undersides of the pads--they sometimes get loose as the vibrations rattle them around. Tighten the nuts that hold the pads inputs in place and reinsert the cables until they sort of "click." If that doesn't work, it might be the cables themselves, so try switching them with one you know is currently working. It'll change which sound is triggered where, but you'll know it's just the cables that need to be replaced, not the pads.

My roland td3 drums are playing the crash noise on every drum i am hitting even when crash is disconnected, why is this please?


Your Xtalk filter is set too low. Refer to the owners manual for how to adjust individual triggers' sensitivity to "cross-talk" (vibrations carried from other pads)
My bet is you unplugged the crash trigger, but not the cable from the actual module (the brain). If you have a cable connected to the brain but not to a trigger, than any little bump to the end of the cable that isn't connected can be picked up as though you hit the pad normally. (play with the end of the cable a little, you'll see what I mean. It's kind of neat.)

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.

I have a 6 month old keyboard and have found that middle octave A and lower octave note C are sounding really off when played together. What could be the problem? The store where I purchased it has...


Thisis hard to troubleshoot... The keyboard insynths are usually scanned as a matrix... If a disconnect diode has failed, then wrong notes can be triggered. There is USUALLY rows of the diodes on the circuit board where the keys hit. There are usually TWO contacts per key in order to sense key velocity. The lkey contacts are usually conductive rubber pills pressed against circuit traces under the keys. One sometimes needs to clean these contacts using 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q tips.
I would do further testing of ALL combinations of notes played together to see if possibly any others show up as that could point to a particular failure.

What does the polarity + - switch do on Roland PD7 & KD7 pads do? also is it possible to purchase replacement internal triggers for these & how do the thin plastic actual trigger parts work...


The polarity switch selects whether the pressure causes a positive or negative electrical spike. This can affect whether your drum MODULE fires on the hit or when the hit is lifted.

Thin plastic triggers are an electret plastic and have piezoelectric properties.when their shape is changed by pressure, etc.
