DrumIt 5 Hardware / Re: Do cymbals with holes wear off sticks?

It’s a shame that Jobeky and Diamond don’t make cymbals without holes anymore.

Another option to consider  is Laurin (https://www.laurindrums.com).

Cheers!

Okay, thanks for the feedback. Normally I don’t have any splinters. I play with a VH11 hi-hat and Alesis Surge cymbals. But now that I’m thinking of changing to Jobeky or Diamond I’m hesitant because of splintering. It’s a shame that Jobeky and Diamond don’t make cymbals without holes anymore. There is of course Field, but they’r way more expensive.

Yeah, like most things that are "better" there's always a downside. Nylon downside is they make a more metallic sound on a metal cymbal than a wooden. Just like how it does on an acoustic cymbal.

If you have had 12 years playing on an ekit with wooden tips without issue, that's good. I however (and many like me) have used wooden tips, not spotted the split on the tip and carried on bashing away on a gig only to only notice the split after a few snags on mesh heads were spotted.

Other factors will include playing style, if your're a hard hitter, this will make splinters on the tip more likely.
Also, it's good practice to have a top quality brand of stick.

So in short, carry on with wood for sure, just be mindful to check the tips often.

A lot b of members here use nylon stick tips as mentioned , they had splinterd  wooden stick tips prior to switching. Playing e drums for almost 12 years and never had any splinters. What I don't like about nylon tips on metal cymb as ls is they are much outer or maybe if not louder the plastic click on met a l irritates me to no end. So I use wood

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Re: GoEdrum Hi Hat controller setup help please

Have you tried another HH controller? I had a Goedrum HH controller and had to bin it after a year. I wasn't getting the same issue as you, closed/open and little to nothing in between, but I was getting closed/med open sporadically without changing my foot position. A new HH controller later, no issue. While they are very popular and well priced, I don't think they're robust to last a long usage.

Just an idea.

You can still use those sticks, but just be sure to check then periodically for snags and chips etc..

-HiHat: Not entirely sure about the Yamaha RHH135 as it uses hardware stepped resistance. Can you see the hihat icon changing as you move through the pedal range, after calibration? Try a different HTYP.

-Snare (#1): By default the snare and rim zone are tied to the selected instrument unless you unbind them by holding MORE and the pressing SNARE, then turn the left knob to select the instrument on that zone. Another thing you could check is to make sure the selected instrument actually has 2 zones i.e ++ not +_ on the 2nd page. Just to be sure, you said you selected "PadP" as the input type... it should say "PadPP" for piezo/piezo.

-Snare (#2): Make use of GAINR (if available) and (increase) MASK. You might need to cool it down, maybe. Are you able to hit a 0.0 dB with gain 0? That should indicate whether you need to consider cooling.

-CYMB 1B - 3B: Correct, these are channels on the same input - so you cannot split them. 2box is only wired for switch sensor on channel B. So if the switch is closed on channel B it still requires a piezo signal from channel A to trigger the 3rd zone. A switch triggered independently without a piezo waveform does nothing.

Epic!  8)

Never heard of Ugritone KVLT Drums II so that's great marketing right there lol.

Now if only 2box would update their OS as frequently as SDSE.  ::)

Okay, yes, that makes sense. So I'm facing a challenge here. I've played with SD9 Drivers for 20 years. They don't have those with nylon tips. So I'll have to change type. Bummer. Thanks for the reply, though. It will probably save me mesh heads. :)
