Just wanted to ask if someone here has experience with the pearl tru trac bassdrum-trigger by using the 2box module. Got one, but i don't get any trigger signal into my drumit5-module. Any help is appreciated.

If you can return the trutrac head and replace it for an external trigger like a ddrum redshot, you'll have sure-fire solution that works. I don't think the trutrack will work with 2box.

I jist got the bassdrum head from pearl because with ddrum-triggers we always had problems with double-triggers (my drummer is using a 22'' bassdrum)from the technical side why do you think the trutrac won't work ?

 ;D
just want to share my further experience with the Pearl Tru-Trac Pad. After installing the non-screw plug of the set, everything works like a charm.

It's by far the best "non-2box Bassdrum-Trigger" I have ever used. My drummer said, the feeling is outstanding and you have a little "natural sounding" bassdrumsound in addition to the triggered sound.

So, if you want your bassdrum dead-silent - leave your fingers from the Tru-Trac. But if you want a real bassdrum triggered and significantly more silent than in original with an extended "Feedback" and great
triggering by using the 2box module - it's a "Must Have"!
Absolutely recommended!

So you're using it with a 2box module? Did you have to tweak the trigger settings at all?

Nope! Ithink I just turned the Treshold down, that's all I did. Lot's of dynamic. I love it.

Triggersettings: Kick1, Gain 24, Treshold -19, Crosstalk 0

To be honest, it was even harder to dial in the right settings, when my former drummer was using
the original 2box-kit.

By the way: my drummer is using wooden heads on the kickdrum-pedals, maybe they have a little more
"Impact" than the felt-heads.

Trutrac issue is that the rim is not on piezo but on a switch.

There is a compatibility list out for DM10. Onfortunately 2Box is not on it.
