Consistant rim triggering

It would be good to have the rims trigger evenly all round the rim instead of only triggering properly near the trigger.

That's strange ... the main trigger is pretty unique in a 2Box cymbal ... it is a Ring piezo ... literally a piezo that encircles the center bell hole. So the trigger is actually as centrally located on a 2Box cymbal pad as is possible ... so you would think the edge triggering should be equal all around .. perhaps the serrated edge/switch is tweaked/bent a little ... you might try removing the cymbal rubber and blowing out the edge with a blower to be sure there is no debris, and check the condition of the edge?? Maybe I am wrong and the edge is naturally not the same all around, but the design seems to support 360 degrees triggering.

J, he is probably speaking of 2Box mesh pads, not the cymbals.
