Last review I told you 3 little plastic hooks broke off (3 pads, front hook facing the drummer). This time I took out my glue-gun for an experiment. On the place where the little hook was I put some hot glue, then sticked the ring there and put some more glue on the ring. Not too much, just gentle like Bob Ross would do. There, you see. I have to test this a bit further but assembling and disassembling the pad again showed everything stayed in place for now.

After some bashing sessions 2 out of 3 glue-blobs came loose. Back to the drawing-board (they don't hinder player btw).

you bought a "new" one? where?
For the rebound, is the mesh head too tight? try to reduce the tension, it should be less tight than the other drums.

Yeah, install OS sounds complicated, I remember when I updated a roland td-12 firmware, you needed a midi interface and dump the thing with a laptop and almost do twirls while you prayed for the update not to fail because of a crappy midi interface......

With the 2box you just copy the file to the sd card and presto, no need to delete the older OS, the box starts up with the most recent one, smart eh?.

I just tried a 64gb sandisk extreme pro 170MB/s SD Card. It wasn't recognized by the module and it showed the Fat error, no OS installed. I formatted the card and same thing.

I agree particularly if it does work with up to 64GB, it's important to know which cards are compatible.

So, there is no way to tell what card is there? You have mentioned some kind of plastic seal that covers the card? It would be so much more covinient to have a trustworthy source of cards. It's a pain to find one that works.

I went ahead and downloaded the content. Yep, some nice new sounds. Still mostly low velocity counts on cymbals. Makes no sense to me...but some nice new drums for sure with multiple mixes for each which is cool!

there are a lot of new sounds, really good ones too.  Edcito has a reply here up with souncloud links showing the new kits.

I have to agree. I don't know why you'd want to sample Roland drums. They are far less expressive than the 2Box sounds with only a couple of velocity samples. To each their own, and you can certainly do it but the quality compared to stock sounds (let alone 3rd party libraries) will be below par.
