do you think it matters whether you use roland wiring way or head to tip and head to ring ? does it matter or is one better? just putting this out there

I didn't see this til today .... The Roland wiring thing is for their center mount positional sensing. The wiring is reversed to get reversed polarity on the piezo. The factor that most don't realize though is that all piezos don't have the same polarity. So it is a 50/50 thing. I know this because I build a Stealth ICM (internal center mount) drum conversion that I mainly build and sell for customers with Roland modules that have modules which support positional sensing ..... And I found out years ago that even piezos from the same manufacturer and same part no. can have different polarity as they put out new batches. So I use quick connects in all my Drum Conversion kits which makes it easy to reverse the Tip and Sleeve wires if needed. All that just to say you don't normally know the polarity of the piezo you are using and it really doesn't matter for the 2Box modules anyway .... But if you are building your own drum triggers for the 2Box modules I would normally say just stick with the standard Tip to Ceramic, Sleeve to Brass for the head piezo and Ring to Ceramic, Sleeve to Brass for the Rim Piezo.

Cool! and now I know who to associate with the kit here at the forum. Thanks for the positive feedback. J
