Hello guys,

Could you post a link for these standard M6 lugs? I could not find some under this reference in France and I'd like to fix my 2Box module as well.


Ok guys, I finally made some holes in my Roland plate and it fits great BUT I thought the screws were the same but no! Roland's ones are a little bit (just a little bit) thinner so I have to find some others. Standard drum tight screws are too thin also, so what would you suggest as some screws for 2Box module guys?


EDIT: Ok I found a topic about that:

Ok thanks for your replies guys. I think I'm gonna modify my TD-20 one, cheaper and I did not plan to sell it anyway (but the TD-20X module).


I mostly use kits 1, 3, 53 and 95. My favourites ones (especially 53)!

I'm waiting for my 32GB/SD extension to load some new kits as using 1.1 USB is boring for me, especially because my computer is not near my drumkit.

Yeah sorry for the confusion about Manfred's box, it's for hi-hat yes. :p

About ride, I will try Cycup but I think I prefer to keep edge sound + choke than clean separate bell without choke and edge, as I use it as a crash/ride too (too strange not to have sound on edge!).

About hi-hat, as I don't plan to buy another hi-hat stand with plate, I think I will choose a 2Box hi-hat cymbal (not too bad as far as I heard).

About ride, just in case I would like to have full expressiveness: is 2Box one a good cymbal? I'm thinking of buying it as I know 2Box cymbals to be heavy but for a ride I think it's a good thing, isn't it? Is it solid like a Roland (I sometimes hear that 2Box cymbals are thin and that the edge become damaged with time, is it true? Roland's one are very solid by the way.

Thanks guys.

I know about manfred's box but not sure about buying something I did not try before... And I don't know wich magnet I have to buy, even after reading all the posts... Seems too complicated to me lol.

About the ride, I tried CYedge and that's what I prefer (because I don't want a bell on the bow like in Crash14 mode), but no bell on bell zone and it's a shame. And manfred's box offers bell but no choke... So either I keep my CY-15R without bell or I buy a 2Box one. Besides, I hears that having manfred's box is not so easy with a hi-hat stand without a plate as the pedal moves a little while playing. Even with a plate it's not always perfect, right?

Hello guys,

I'm new on this forum, so nice to meet you. :)

I switched my TD-20X module to a 2Box one.
Explanations: I loved my TD-20X and I was waiting so much for the TD-30 to have even better sounds and playability (Roland's strengh to me).

BUT, I tried the TD-30 and I was VERY disappointed by the sounds... It's exactly the same technology as the TD-20X, they just renamed it. News is in the expressiveness but not in sounds!
The evidence is that all TD-20X settings are fully compatible with the TD-30 as the modeling technic is the same.

So, I decided to get a 2Box module and wow the sounds are great (the worst 2Box ones equal the best ones of Roland when very well tweaked IMO). I just have now to replace my ride (a CY-15R) and the hi-hat (VH-12) with 2Box ones to get a good playability and I'm gonna resell my TD-20X.

I keep my Roland pads as I love the feeling and their head are strictly indestructible.

To sum up, I'm fed up with Roland sounds now, it's time to have real ones, and 2Box is now getting better and better on settings (not as rich as Roland though).

My 2 cents.
