Hihat stand - any will work. If you want to clamp it to the rack, a legless one probably would be best, just for the look. But they're harder to come by.
Snare snare - most will work, make sure that they can be used on 12" drums
sticks - whatever feels comfortable. If you're starting out, 5a (medium light) is a good weight for a beginner. Truth be told, best stick weight is something that you'll figure out over time. Over the years I have used all sorts of weights. I eventually settled on 5b weight. But I would have a 7a (light) pair on hand on quiet/jazz gigs.

Thank you my friend! Ok so I think it’s clear about snare stand.👍
“Meinl MHL low height hi hat stand. Made for Cajon players.” Don’t really know what that means but that’s what it says. What do you think of that one? Can the original 2box hi hat stand be considered as low height? I’m just curious about the hi hat mechanism itself and how is that gonna fit. To me it looks like a big deal now and kind of specific. Hopefully I’m wrong.
And yes I’m starting out so probably the lighter the sticks the better. Time will show then. 👍 Thank you so much for your thoughts!

Hello all,
Matthieu from France, 42 years old and delighted to join you.

I am considering investing in a Drumit 5 MK2.
I already have an ATV AD5 for which I am very satisfied with the sounds of HH and Ride cymbals but I find the number of sounds for the tomes limited, and I cannot find any snare that suits me because they really lack punch and don't cut through the mix when I play on music for example.

My idea is to keep the ATV module for cymbals, and work on the D5 MK2 for everything else (bass drum snare and tomes), if the basic sounds of the module don't suit me I like it. idea of ??being able to make kits that sound "perfectly to my ear" from SD3, everything would be blend on my RCF mixer as I do now (TD-17 for the snare drum and some cymbals and the rest coming from AD5).

But it is difficult to find informations on this module, I still did not understand, for example if we could directly modify the kits in the module (from the moment or the sounds were recorded in it) or if each time you had to create your kits on a PC and import them into the module ...
I hope to be able to find the answers to my questions here and finally decide to order a DF MK2, and not need to spend more than 2000 euros in a Mimic Pro to obtain a conclusive result on "all" the sounds of my drums.

Bonjour et bienvenu!
the only things you can change in the module are a basic 3 band EQ and 2 types of effects: delay and flanger, that's it, so you will need to change and export the sounds in your VST but they will sound differently anyway once imported in the module, you can check the french manual of the drumit5 mk2 here: https://2box-drums.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/2BOX-DrumIt-Five-MKII-Mode-demploi.pdf

Hello,

I am Ivo from Germany and pretty much 61 years of age. This year I started to learn drums, so I bought me a Roland Kit. In the 80th I Made Synthpop with a friend of mine and now I want to start this again. Beside working with my teacher since 6 weeks I am drumming to the songs of Depeche Mode just for fun.
My interests are making my own sounds for the drums and my workstation.
This idea brought me to keep an eye on the drumit 5 mk2 as a new drum Module for my Set.
It’s too bad that the USB connector is not able to send and receive Midi Data.
Ok I maybe find a solution around this with what I can work. Normally I didn’t want to go back to old stile Midi connection. Except this, everything else will fit my idea.

Cheers
Ivo

Wanted to give you all credit for a job well done with this great forum! I have learned a lot from reading the posts entered here. A month ago I became an owner of a drumit five with the mkll rack, module serial 22xx. Got nice tips for ex. solutions regarding the ”wobbly” kick pad, but ended up with my own invention for this ”problem”. I don’t know how to post an image yet. But I will figure it out and post it in the existing thread/s.

Been an adrummer since I started and have owned so many different kits and brands that I have lost count. Never satisfied. With this ”box” I can switch sounds, kits, tuning with the push of a button depending on the mood for the day. Wonder why I didn’t think of doing the conversion earlier. Would have saved a lot of time and money.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you, and looking forward to chat around with you all about whatever it will be! Cheers from Sweden! :)

Hi Henrik. Välkommen!
Ser nr 22xx is an orange Mk1 module I guess?
Still going strong that one.
Hoppas du orkar trumma trots värmen :-)
Best, Deve (Stockholm).

Tack så mycket, Deve Loper! Yes, it’s the mk1 module with the 32gb memory upgrade from Zourman Drums. Did the upgrade yesterday and it works like a charm! This is good stuff. Very pleased! :)

Trummar i 250 bpm så fläktar det gött! 8)
Brgds, Henrik

Howdy all - my 5 mk2 is being delivered tomorrow, purchased after chopping in my TD3 for a TD12 and I then fell foul of the dodgy display issue. My guitarist is hoping to fix it so I can sell it on to some other poor soul! I agonised between 2box and a TD27 but here I am.

Have been drumming for over 30 years, latterly using my electronic kit for gigs due to size, volume and convenience. Looking forward to getting stuck into the module and I promise I'll scour the forum before asking any stupid questions!
