Tom splitter
« on: September 18, 2021, 06:03:43 PM »
I want to install 3 drum-tec trigger tubes (https://www.drum-tec.com/drum-tec-trigger-tube-pro-3-pack) by splitting off the rims of my toms. I currently have 3 roland pdx pads for toms 1-3. When splitters are discussed in relation to roland gear, I see it mentioned that I may need special splitters with a resistance because of the way the roland pads are set up, but I'm not sure whether these are needed for roland pads or for a roland module.

Hi. Any normal Y  trs to 2 x ts cable will work. The special one is for the rol module.
Cheers.

wouldn't such a splitter be TRS to TS + RS? But I suppose anything that advertises itself as a tom splitter without a resistor should do the job then. Thanks!

I'm using 4 of the Hosa YPP-117

Works flawlessly. No need to spend the extra money on the Drum-tec ones with the resistor in my experience.

Yes, -from-  ts and rs, but -to- two times ts.
