Setup guides and tips / Additional cymbals
« Last post by Chaosinside777 on July 28, 2022, 03:22:25 PM »
Hi there,
I'm Andy from Austria and my drummer (who is not really into gear at all) has recently bought a 2box Drumit5 Mk2 module, which he is using with Jobeky Snare/Tom Triggers and Roland VH-13 Hihat and a few other Roland cymbal pads.

The module does a great job, but we would love to include a second (closed) Hihat to the setup.
Kick, Snare, Hihat, Tom1,Tom2,Tom3    Inputs are in use
Crash1 is already using the Tom4 Input
Crash2 is Cymbal1
Ride     is Cymbal2
China   is Cymbal3

I have read in the manual, that it is possible to increase the amount of pads with the "more" button, if you turn (we won't do that with the snare) the stereo-toms into mono toms without rim-function. As this would be a no-brainer for my drummer (he never uses the rim of his toms)
But we don't have the intention to increase the amount of toms - in fact, we want to get another stereo-input channel for a closed Hihat
If we take the toms 1 and 2, for example and connect them with a TRS to dual mono cable, Is it possible to set a panorama and extra volume for the toms, when they sit on the same channel?
Because it would be a shame, if Tom1 and 2 would have to share the same volume and panorama settings!

I have seen many pictures of drummers having more the the 3 cymbals and 2 Hihats without using 2 modules - but I just don't know how it is done.

Any advise would be helpful,

Best Regards,

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Zourman VH-11 on VH-12 hihat!
« Last post by Joergger on July 26, 2022, 09:46:28 AM »
Hello
I have the VH-12 hi-hat machine and would like a VH-11 Zourman offer. I know that there is a zourman VH-12 for this purpose. But it also works with the Zourman vh-11, right?! But how good?! Is that enough to make good use of it?!

Thank you for your feedback,
Didn't find anything about it in the forum.
 Greetings, George

Post gig report.

All was fine, no issues at all, drums sounded great through the PA which was 2x Cerwin Vega 15” top speakers and a single Cerwin Vega 18” sub.

Hi,
Already spend 5 gigs using the DI3 Speedlight kit + additional Roland cymbals, it is really great experience ! Sure, it will remain my stage drums set for long. I have a spare SD card and a spare power supply in case...
My only concern is the bass-drum`s head that is kind of fast to get damaged. I wonder where to buy parts, as we don't have resellers in France...
Cheers !

Thanks for that Steve, reassuring and I've got a back up PSU.

Good to have the warning about triggers as well but hopefully stage vol will be relatively low as there'll be no acoustic drum noise and they'll be able to turn amps down.

Cheers, will report back after the gig.

I can only talk about the Di3 or the original Di5 module.

Only issue I ever had with the module side of things, power supply broke. The old Di5 module ran on 18v AC, so not the kind of thing you could buy at any store. Fortunately it got me through the gig and I got a couple of replacements.

Module(s) was rock solid. You MIGHT find in a live environment, the need to adjust triggering parameters, maybe. It will depend on how loud your other band members are.

Well I am eventually for the first time going to play a full gig using my 2Box module with a mix of rubber pads, DIY mesh snare, Roland and Speedlight cymbals.

Just to set my mind at rest, what has people's experience been regarding reliability? I've played it for ages at home and in rehearsals over the last 18m or so without even a squeak once the original SD card had been replaced. I've got a spare duplicate SD card and a spare power supply, both tested and working!

Anything else I need to think about? I'm sure all our worst nightmares would be no sounds mid-gig!

What are your gig counts and reliability experiences? (here's hoping for encouraging answers :))

Hi. Looks like a bir of the white / inner circle of the piezo came off where it was soldered.
Maybe (?) you can solder the wire again on another part of that inner circle.
Otherwise and better, new piezo.
Best, Deve.

Hello,
I asked a friend to do one cut on the side of the box, using à CNC machine. The card is now very easy to access and I don't need the external cable and adaptor. I don't know how to add a picture on the topic...  ::) so you ca follow this link :
